sweet... really like this one...

what did you use for the various sounds? particularly that trumpet-like sound?

thanks for posting your music

yes, I liked this a lot.
if this makes sense: the tunes of yours I like best have a great way of integrating from the top down. Organic with tech-y sounds, slow pace with jittery beats. quite a balancing act :)

Just a touch more abstract than most of your work I think, but just as cool. Love the sounds in here, and it has a great feel overall, kinda cavernous.
the synthgeek pages - plugins, samples, etc.

Not to worry.

Cheers pdx! Haven't seen you around for a bit... the lead sounds were all from MOTU's Ethno - 2 saxophones and a flute.

Thank you ouroboros! I do love that combination of organic and electronic - glad this one worked for you!

Thanks synthgeek! Yes, guess I could have said it's got more of an abstract ambient feel... brain was so fried at the point I posted that all I could say was down tempo! :lol:

Thanks Jazzy! Hey come on up - you're already used to the snow! And if runagate comes up as well... could be a party!

a somewhat odd combination of brass and glitch, but like cpt I love weird and abstract stuff. It might even make an appearance on NTNS.

What an awsome atmosphere! I feel all sticky from the humidty regardless of the fact that I'm in a dry, air-conditioned room. The rhythmic droplets are sick. I love how they get dropped and sucked back up and then stuttered.

What reverb do you usually use? They always sound so dense and amazing.

another gourmet polyslax stew ... :-) the dubby reverb acts like a sauce holding everything together. alive, like a musical organism. love the bass note, but does it (almost) clip/distort? hard to tell. your songs almost make me think of a jazz trio/quartet performing live. i think you should abandon all your worldly goods, put together an electro-jazz band, and tour europe. (i hear the groupies are hot.)

I'm definitely ready to abandon my life and tour with poly as soon as I get my new gear. Can Canadians get visas to visit other countries??

why about delay, did delay touch you?

yea this is kinda sexy, nice use of sounds and subtleties. it is a really soothing and sexy soundscape.

Thanks Justin! That's Altiverb on the reverb.

Hmmm, maybe I could sell my kids to the Gypsies... :wink: Thanks Rick! The bass - it's just a rather hot sample, but not clipping in the track - I love it too.

I'd have to clear it with the Mounties first! :lol:
