HEARTBEATS - The Knife (BRiES cover) / Schlappi Engineering THREE BODY

video upload by BRiES

"THREE BODY by Schlappi Engineering takes care of 100% of the bass arpeggio in this video (aka the main synth). It's very interesting to be able to get all this grit without losing the ability to turn it down for a less harsh sound and without having to worry about relative pitches of your carrier and modulators. No processing was done to the audio coming from THREE BODY afterwards (apart from some low and mid cut EQ and a smidge of compression).

The sequencing for the bass (and part of the higher pitched arp and hihats) is done with eurorack sequencers, I recorded the main part in one take (which I recorded). The poly synth stabs were created with my own plugin PLL-102 (which you can buy as part of my VST pack 'SYNTHS one' on the Decent Sampler webshop).

There's no play-back going on in this video, everything you see happening was recorded live and used unaltered (apart from gentle eq, some compression and autotune - Melda Productions MPitch - for the vocals).

Your boi BRiES takes care of 100% of the singing (which I autotuned in this version of the upload) so be prepared for some vocal cringe.

I spent most of my birthday recording the audio and video for this cover. It's something that I've been wanting to do for a long time (recording a cover where the main part is taken care of by a eurorack system). The song 'heartbeats' (the José Gonzales version) popped into my head a few days ago and I just had to give it a try.

To whom it may concern:This is a cover of the song 'Heartbeats' by The Knife. This video isn't monetized nor is it sponsored (no one is making money off of this video). All rights to the song and lyrics are reserved to The Knife."
