Made this simple little instrumental synth piece today when playing around with Hybrid 3 :) I have not made public any of my stuff on this sub-forum so far, hope you like this little sketch :)

hi fluff.

great to hear something from you!
it sounds like a nice beginning to a pleasant tune.

i wonder why more kvr members that i see over in the instruments
area boasting so much knowledge of virtual instruments never
post any music here.

Hehe, that's why I am here now, I lack the knowledge and interst to TALK about virtual instruments beyond a certain level :hihi: For other people it is probably easier to talk about every detail of them than to actually make music with them.

I downsized my setup dramatically during the past week, which has already helped me stop wasting time on programming countless patches I never use anyway. I guess that theoretical side of it was just an excuse for me to not sit down and work on melodies etc., which is much more difficult for me as I lack any musical background, I play strictly by ear :)

Yes, I think I will try and make more of that piece :) Just have to figure out which genre, it sounds rather modern for an old guy like me :hihi: But, modesty apart, I think there is something to it...

Nice melody and nice sounds

Btw, I thought that you hate trance in all forms, but this sounds very trancey to me ;)
I hate incomplete sentences because they ...

Yes, as I said, I know it sounds way too modern for me, I don't really know what more to do with that melody, frankly 8)
I think it is the pluck kind of sound that makes it sound like EDM. Maybe I should replace it by a piano :wink:
I confused the Air synths by the way, it was two instances of Xpand, not Hybrid :hihi:

Very nice... so far. Rather a teaser in fact :hihi:
It wasn't me! (well, actually, it probably was)

Yeah, I didn't even bother fading it out, just exported the loop :hihi:
I have come to doubt it will ever be more than a teaser because it is just not my type of music, I am into old-skool "Black Music" with lyrics. Like every Saturday I was just listening to SOS Band and Imagination stuff from the 80s, now that's my world :)

I like this. Doesn't sound very EDM to me but then again i don't really listen to that genre much. Have you considered covering this? I'd be interested to hear that. =) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=khj9jyNvhpQ

Was just working on my synth patch for emulating an electric bass on an "analog" synth (it's all Sylenth1), and found this little sketch funny, in a weird way 8) Like with the first sketch I don't really know what to do with it, frankly :hihi:

I know that song well, love the bass :)
No idea how and why anyone would cover that, it's great as it is, I would not want to butcher it :hihi:

The problem with that is that after hearing my stuff a certain number of times, I don't want to hear it no more. So I really have to force myself to work on it.
I am not overly into certain aspects of making music, especially dynamics such as compression and gain staging, which makes me postpone or even avoid those tasks, i.e. I never really finish anything :?
