Now since he was pretty new to the DAW, He exported out the stems, The Fruity Loops file and the samples and sent them all to me. He was at a roadblock and couldn't really figure out the next course of action and asked me for some help and advice.
I spent two months on the track. Now I know you must probably think two months is a long time, but when you're working, eating, mixing recording and repeating, time really seems to fly. There were also exams, band jams and recording sessions in the studio to take care of. There were lots of times, I wouldn't be able to make time for the project.
I'm a huge fan of glitch and love incorporating it, everywhere. It adds a very sharp edge to the track. Especially when you're working in a genre like electronic music, the occasional glitch can do wonders.
After scouring the Internet for some time, I came across a royalty-free rough recording of a saxophone being played in the heart of a city, and I somehow felt it completely fit even though at first didn't seem so at all. After some careful EQ'ing and audio restoration, I came across the perfect way to end the song.
Saxophones are full of swag. Period.
