Production Notes and the Double Process

Perfecting a new formulaic process that’s been in the works for years.
It starts with a hypothetical “5 track song”, in which all five tracks are exported in their original state. Each track is then slowed down at the same rate, then reintroduced back into the DAW, re-tracked with added equalization, balance, effects, etc. The resulting “5 track compilation” tends to sound and act better than simply slowing down the “5 track original” in its entirety.

There has been many experiments in doing this process twice upon itself. Preliminary arguments and discussion point at this Double Process as being very difficult to control and edit. This challenge pursues more agile editing and some sort of precognition in track formation.

More preliminary experiments done denote a Triple Process, in which the above exercise has gone two more steps in slowing down, re-tracking, added equalization, balance, effects, etc. This results in a more smoothly stretched-out composition that retains is original attributes and adds other flavor, yet is very difficult to control.
