Method

1. Started off with cutting up loops from the Jungle Warfare Sample CD in Soundforge.
2. Created a Soundfont using Vienna, putting the Drums on the MIDI Keyboard
3. Loaded up Cubase to write down the first Drums patterns and experiment with grooves
4. Digging through my sample library for FX samples to add some spice
5. Loaded up Generator, to create the subsonic/sine Bassline which you can hear in the first part of the track
6. Started to work on the main bassline
7. Began shifting around parts to get a sort of basic arrangment
8. Keep working, don't stop

Software

Windows 95 / Cubase VST / Soundforge / Vienna / Generator (called Reaktor now)
