I hope it doesn’t need to be stated, but despite the title, this track was not inspired by the popular series of vampire books, nor the movie based on them. I haven’t read the books, I haven’t seen the movie, and I don’t find vampires particularly interesting.
Most of the patches that came up in the selection process suggested a dark, spooky texture study. The Piano Morphing patch, the first one we hear, really set the tone for the rest of the piece.
The “Double Tracked 6-strings” (Acoustic guitar) was a problem. I tried to modify the tone somewhat to fit into the overall character of the piece, but I don’t think I quite nailed it. I couldn’t do anything with the Soprano or Hihat, so I just left them out.
