Really like the bassline Tim ;-)

(( D ))


Thanks very much for listening and commenting, Daniel. Glad you enjoyed it :)

At the time I made this (just over 3 years ago), I was making a conscious effort to use less instruments to make these tracks. I was looking at ways to make more productive use of my time. Cutting down on the number of instrument tracks enabled my to complete these pieces an much less time.

Glad you liked the bassline :hug:

pleasantly listenable


Thanks for the listen and comments, wavephonic. Glad you liked it :)

The drums are EnergyXT XR-10 samples. They have a light, clean sound that seems to suit this style of music.

'90s video games - before my time :wink:

Finally getting to listen to this!

Digging the vibe my friend. Floaty, minimal for you, and yes...it's definitely groovy.

Nice work. :D

Cheers,

Very different vibe for you here Tim, lighter and more introspective. Nicely integrated groove! The organ is perfect here and the synth work is tasty as always. Good stuff!


Cheers, Matt. Thanks very much for listening and for the comments. Glad you liked it :)

This is certainly more minimal than my usual pieces. I'm Hoping to hear some more polyslax in the Cafe soon.

Thanks very much for the ears and the comments, DHM. Glad you enjoyed it :)

I really like the sounds coming from those GTG synths.

doesn't sound minimal to me, more tight and no padding, lots of movement.
cool stuff.

Thanks for taking the time to listen and comment, S1gns. Glad you liked it :)

Only 8 instrument tracks on here plus the drums. That's a minimal instrument set in my world.

Thanks for the listen and comments, fatc. Glad you liked it :)

I really meant minimal in terms of the number of instrument tracks used. I think there were 8 synth instances and a drum sampler on here. In late 2010 and early 2011 when these tracks were originally written, I seemed to be moving towards this way of working. I don't think it was intentional, but fortuitous. This way of working seems to have persisted in my 2013 and 2014 tracks, and one benefit of this is a faster, more efficient workflow.
