Downriver started as a sketch I was working on using Auxy on my iPhone while wandering solo around Brussels and Amsterdam in 2016. I reworked the core ideas quite a few times in the following months while I travelled, eventually morphing it into a more old-school breakbeat style of track.

Ultimately I ended up keeping the main drums, bassline, and background melodies almost exactly as they were from the initial Auxy sketches. Those were exported into Ableton Live 10, where I added some background pads and distorted chords from my DSI OB-6 and Ableton’s Wavetable synth. Some additional percussion samples were added from my sample library to round out the rhythmic elements. The guitar is my Taylor 814ce acoustic being processed by a TC Electronic Hall of Fame Reverb, as well as Ableton’s Echo and Pedal devices. Final volume and dynamics control was done with DMG’s Limitless.

Hope you enjoy,
Tarekith

Auxy eh? Thanks for bringing that to my attention. Just downloaded it and having a play around right now!

It's a pretty sweet app, sounds amazing and has a good workflow. The developers have a lot of big plans for the app it sounds like.

Really nice, definitely heard the old breaks sound in there, though I'm not much of an expert on that genre
