Éclat: Part 9

 

The Challenge:
To create a track using ONLY samples (and then whatever effects you like) from the Polish Radio Experimental Studio.

Read more about PRES, and download the sample-packs on Ableton's website.

For this challenge we will be using the samples from the folder "PRES Raw Source Samples".

If you're looking at this post on the day that it goes up, you'll know that it's Christmas Day! So there's no Éclat Crew meet-up in Berlin today - this one is for you to complete in the comfort of your own home. Send your finished track to eclatcrewberlin [at] gmail [dot] com and we'll put it up on our Soundcloud to share with the rest of the Crew, far and wide. Happy Holidays, stay safe out there.
