Hi folks

here's a new track I made which is much different from my usual techno stuff. Made in FLstudio with mostly free stuff

I hope someone enjoys it :)

thanks very much! I wasn't trying to recreate a particular era, just stick to melodies and interesting chord changes rather than the usual noodling and sound mangling, which automatically makes it sound retro :lol:

Love it! Great motifs, good sound! The arps in particular works really well with me. :)

Do you mind sharing your sound sources?

thanks. The arp at the beginning is z3ta+ and the one at the end is the native 3osc synth in FLstudio - nothing very exotic :)

the other synth sounds are all from multiple sources. There are lots of layers, and I used a lot of samples of sounds I've created and processed many times in the past, so can't really specify any particular synth, though I tend to only use simple and/or free ones and use lots of effects to make something more interesting. There is synth1 mixed in with most of the melodies, but not the chords.

Fantastic. I'd enjoy playing a Hammeresque lead line or three with this.

thanks! I like the idea of making an album like this but whether it happens or not really depends on the muse :D

Thanks for the info! Sounds really great.

...nice one, highly enjoyed! cool sounds, nice melody lines and interesting chord changes. this song makes me aware that I'm more shaped by the 80's than I'm aware of.
now listening a second time.


cheers

Great track!

To me this is just (good) music, not specifically 80's music.
Does that mean I'm an 80's child as well? 8)
How can I get that mp3-player out of my brain?!

thanks guys, yeah it just kind of took on an 80s feel so I decided to just go with it. Clearly I'm shaped by the 80s too :D

Awesome! This is really good!
I'm an 80's child as well so... :)
You're right about throwing some melodies over chords almost instantly sounds 80's
The same thing happened to me on some tracks. I loved it but I'm trying not to get limited by it.
Will check out your other stuff.
Thanks
