>Are all the instruments from the multitracks or did you >overdub anything? That kick is cool
For WBSS, I added some things:
-the kick (808) -the drums (chopped, cleaned intro from WAR's "Galaxy") -additional claps from stock stuff I use -additional percussion from stock stuff I've collected, and the Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough demo (from the Off The Wall reissue)
Once I found the BPM (126), it was easy to properly overdub some stuff. Since WBSS's basis was a drum machine, things locked fairly well.
I also chopped the synth bassline into pieces and reconstructed it. With the WBSS stems, whoever put them together pre-mixed some things so it was a challenge to get a clean mix. PLENTY of paragraphic EQ was used...
For RWY, I didn't add anything, but I took his finger snap track, processed it with a noise gate to be the official "time keeper" of the track. It was fun listening to his snaps with the headphones on 20 and shit...LOL. There was a LOT of stuff that was recorded but not used in the final mix, so it was fun to play with those tracks.
