Hi all,

Here is my latest track.

A couple of weeks ago, I bought a Yamaha DX7IIFD, and this the first track I have used it on. In fact, it dominates the track; there are six DX parts.

I actually enjoy programming FM synths, so all of the sounds are my own:

Good sounds. You seem to be a natural with FM synthesis. You have the raw material here for what sounds like an 80s synthpop classic. Unfortunately, the structure doesn't make much sense to me. It sounds like a collection of good ideas waiting be organized.

Thanks everyone...

It makes perfect sense to me :) Anyway, I do tend to treat all my tracks as works in progress, so I might go back and work on it some more.

The funny thing is, that someone on a different forum said that its too predictable :)

Great sounds and I liked the track too. I listened to it 3 times. Great '80s sounds.

Good work :)

I'm hearing more bass. Yes, I think it's an improvement.

Nice work all round, sound-wise and musically. While maintaining a steady beat (apart from the early drop) there is plenty of variation to hold interest.
Also, I always appreciate a download link - thanks :)
It wasn't me! (well, actually, it probably was)
