This track was made for KVR Audio’s One Synth Challenge #21 (October 2010 edition). I thought I’d get in early. This little known Synth sounds great but gave me a LOT of trouble. Majken’s Chimera VST. It had a uniquely maritime feel that I’d never heard before so I thought I’d do a sea shanty ambient piece. Continue reading
It’s been a while since my last tune. If it weren’t for the One Synth Challenge and a bit of spare time up my sleeve, I’d rarely get any music done at all.
This is my entry into KVR’s One Synth Challenge #29. Comments are most welcome.
Something I put together late one night. I’ve been working very very hard (I’m a tutor at Uni) and just needed to relax a bit. This music did the job.
This is an ambient piece I almost made. It was automatically generated by tweaking preset states on Audio Damage’s new synth / sequencer Axon. I like how that synth can create almost structureless music based on thirds. There are 3 channels. I pushed the first percussive channel through Galbanum’s Aether reverb plugin, so it’s kind of an expensive track but with AU$1=US$1 I had to treat myself to Axon (US$59). Definitely my cup of tea.
Play this lightly in the background at your evening soiree or if you’re an insomniac, let it play quietly as you try to sleep. If you listen carefully, you will hear voices.
Another 5 or 6 hours on a Sunday arvo well spent. The joy of making these tracks is really something to experience. Just sitting at the computer, putting this together – was like holding hands with God. If as some think he does exist. Working out when to bring new sounds in and when there’s too much of others. It’s 40-something nerdy male heaven. And then to produce it and upload it right to an international competition such as the One Synth Challenge. What else is there? Here is a link to the electronic music competition page.
