I wasn’t musically inspired at all today, but I did think of a studio trick I’ve been meaning to try — double-tracking, where you record the same thing twice, panned hard left and right. It’s often used on vocals, because it gives them a nice wide sound.
No-one wants to hear me singing, so instead of vocals, I’ve tried it with the LinuxSampler piano, and with a simple synth lead/bass sound from the Blofeld. The sketch file has single-tracked and double-tracked versions of both, so you can hear the difference. I’m also trying a flash-based MP3 player widget thingy for my posts — let me know if it doesn’t work for you.
