Adam Fielding's Top 5

 

Adam Fielding

Biography

Adam Fielding, an electronic musician and popular music production student from the UK, took the #1 spot in the 2008 Bassline Battle with his entry 'Mad Bad Uber Funk'.

The Big Chill (Viral outbreak / Combinators / Pads / The Big Chill AF)

Yes, I made this patch, but I use this all the time. It's just such a satisfying, warm sound that fits in any situation (apart from post-nu-breakcore-noise or something). This can be heard on several of my tracks, particularly on Distant Activity.

Granular Sampler System (Peff 033 - Thor Step Sequencer System / Granular Sampler)

I seriously cannot get enough of this. I use this all the time with vocals for stuttering effects, atmospheric sounds and... it's just brilliant, brilliant fun. Twist those samples up!

Analog Bass (Stomppfill Thor)

I tend to use this as a starting point for a lot of bass sounds. I used it in a track of mine called Distant Activity, and I love how fat and bouncy it sounds.

Rickenbacker N&B A|U47+F|M49 (Reason Electric Bass / Bass Patches / -Preset Basses / -Rickenbacker 4001 (Pick))

This is the first bass guitar patch I turn to if I'm looking for a satisfying electric bass. I used it in a track called Aurora and for my bassline entry, Mad Bad Uber Funk. Not being a bassist myself, I just really like how it sounds out of the box.

Yamaha Old (Reason Pianos / -Piano Patches / -Preset Pianos / -Yamaha C7 Grand)

Pianos tend to be a common staple of mine, and this patch in particular is my usual go-to for something nice and expressive. I used this in a track called The Long Goodbye, which is a solo piano piece itself with a nice synth-based atmosphere complementing the piano.
