This is a skeletal / rough-draft version to help you understand how TNGHT (Hudson Mohawke and Lunice) sequenced their hit tune, ‘Bugg’n.’
I want to point out – the synth-sound IS a little different than in the original tune. Also, this is NOT the full tune, it’s my projection of the intro of the song, sequenced / traced into Ableton Live and Acid Pro. It will, however, give you a good idea of how the bass, melody, and beat were sequenced.
Yes, good ol’ fashioned beat-tracing! You can figure out a lot about a song by tracing it. This is not my first video, but definitely my first traced-beat tut, and many more could be on their way, if it turns out that folks like these videos…
So, hopefully some of y’all enjoy this!
