Sept. 10, 2017 - Kevin Moore has posted a second video on YouTube for one of his new Chroma Key demo songs.
The keyboardist posted a 3:48 video today for "4-Track," which is one of five demo songs released so far through the Chroma Key Patreon campaign. The demo was originally shared with fans in February.
"I made a simple video for '4-Track' which is just a static shot of the track playing on my Maschine Studio production controller, showing the visual feedback on the color pads," Moore said in a post on Patreon.
When "4-Track" was originally shared with fans in February, Moore said it was mostly programmed on the Maschine. "I played the drum patterns in real time, edited them for some variations, then added the bass, synth and Rhodes parts," he said. "Later, I imported everything into Ableton Live where I tracked vocals and... more synth. I kept adding new synth parts until my Mac became frustrated and threatened to leave me. I hope you're satisfied."
The first YouTube video for one of Moore's Chroma Key demo songs went to "Mission," which was the first demo released through his Chroma Key Patreon campaign. That YouTube version came a few weeks after the keyboardist polled his Patreon patrons about making the demo releases available to stream online to help promote the new music, with an overwhelming majority of the voters in support of the idea.
So far, Moore has released five demo songs through the Chroma Key Patreon campaign, which launched in 2015 and invited fans to pledge an amount of their choosing to help fund new music. There have also been five bonus tracks shared with fans.
