Track Science : ‘Placid’ – Vishal Unni

I”m going to be breaking down my track ‘Placid’ that I’ve been working for some time now and uploaded to SoundCloud during the pandemic. This was the first track I started working on this track with my friend’s Moog Sub 37 (which was always a dream synth for me). I just tried to make different sounds with it and that’s how this track turned out.




Check out the full track up SoundCloud.


Kick and Bass

I used a sample for the Kick with some changes to the pitch and some processing. The bassline is a recorded take from the moog. Recorded a super long take, and then took it to the Arrangement View to chop it up make some edits to the groove. This is something I do pretty often when working with a synthesizer.  I’ve grouped the Kick and Bass and processed them together.


My drums are a combination of loops recorded from Repro and Arturia’s Minibrute, and Samples sequenced in MIDI using the Simpler. I prefer to use individual tracks for my drum samples and loops as opposed to using drum racks for the entire kit. This gives me more control over each drum sound. I sometimes use a drum rack with a bunch of different samples to create fills, and use effects on existing drum sounds to get some interesting fills and fx. Grouped and processed them together.

Synth Stuff – Bass Stabs and Melody

I started working on this track as soon as a friend got over his Moog Sub 37 to my studio, which was always a dream synth for me. I recorded some different types of sounds without really knowing much about it, trying out the different parameters. What you hear above is a combination of 3 different takes from the synth which I again edited in Arrangement to make more cohesive loops.

Pads & Atmos

I recorded the main pad, as well as a second pad sound using Repro-5 which I’ve been using for sometime, and really love the way it sounds. I also use Omnisphere a lot for textures and atmosphere’s and record them into audio and place them where I feel necessary. This is a common practice across most of my projects.
