Few notes... did all of this on the SP-404 mk2, so all FX are turned on/off real time... so don't mind it being off in a spot or two (or do... and don't vote for the track lol). To get things going I just picked the FX and adjusted settings to taste, but no random knob twiddling or anything... just played it straight.

Bus FX used
* Downer
* Isolator
* Scatter

Had found a fun use for Stopper, but I recorded this as like the fifth or sixth take... and not going back.

Master FX used
* Warm Saturator
* 303 Vinyl SIm

Drums are just from whatever kick/snare/hat I had laying around... nothing fancy...

All the noise samples were me sampling various mouth noises with a mic, and maybe some fx for taste... but cannot remember off hand.

The rest of it is from the sample, and was just really listening and trying to find some notes I liked and thought would work with pitching stuff up and down, resampling, and just exploring.

Had fun, that's the important thing :D

Can't wait to see what other folks do!

Thanks, man - yours was pretty slick, too.
