This pack features the three Homeshake remakes that I put together for my Homeshake Synth Sounds article that I updated in 2023. These are remakes of the following songs:
- Call Me Up
- Every Single Thing
There was an older version of the Homeshake Synth Sounds article that I published way back in 2017 as one of the first articles for the site. This was before I started remaking full songs; I would just focus on small clips of individual sounds. The new Projects featured in this pack were created from scratch so that I could focus on making the new synth presets more accurate to the original sounds.
The projects look quite simple because of the low track count, but I spent a lot of time adjusting the timing in the MIDI clips to match the groove of the original tracks. The lead sound in Call Me Up and both the synth and drums in Every Single Thing are good examples; I programmed these parts on the piano roll and then manually shifted individual notes ‘off-grid’ to match the timing of the original parts, which were likely played by hand.
The only audio track I recorded was bass guitar for Call Me Up which I recorded straight into my audio interface and processed with a low-pass filter (from EQ8) and compression.
