    I don't do as many Samsung Electronics ads as I used to, but when work comes in, it's always fun to see what direction the promotional staff needs me to go.

    On the menu was a lush piano/string intro, followed by a light-hearted house track with funk guitar. So when it came time to get funky, I did a no-nonsense legato Moog bass line (Omnisphere Trillian) and pulled out the Fender Japan ST-68TX. I had primarily modded with a set of low output 1968s, and lo and behold it sat in the mix like magic. Clean as a whistle and bright as can be.

    Guitar-wise, all you're hearing is the ST-68TX going into a Ross Compressor and then the UAD Apollo Twin, with no amp sims or separate preamp involved. There's some chorus & delay via a MOTU DP plug-in, but no additional compression or EQ. No-nonsense, laid-back and groovy Strat tones panned L and R...and with quieter singles it simply works without much help.


    INTRO:
    Soundiron Emotional Piano
    8Dio Anthology Sordini Strings
    8Dio Agitato Grandiose Violins

    MAIN THEME:
    CIJ ST68-TX (w/Moollon VS-69)
    NI Battery drums
    Spectrasonic Omnisphere (EP, pads, lead monosynth)
    Spectrasonic Trillian (Moog bass)

    Great work. Clean and green.

    ...and who knew cleaning the filter in the vent hood could be so much fun?

    Haha, I know, right? That slow motion cut somehow made the hood grate washing scene appear curiously sexy, for reasons I can't explain ;)

    Thanks for watching!

    Great job on the music!

    I used to do commercial music on the side. It can be easy, and sometimes it can be real tough.

    And I know this has nothing to do with your end but the chef in me wonders why the models put that beautiful steak into a cold pan.
