first off, im not a fan of UHE CPU hog synths.
that said, something like this is what i constantly get laughed at
over in the instrument forum when i say, it doesn't matter how much
money you spent on your stuff or how great everyone says it is.
the mixing and mastering is going to make the most important impression.

4 instances of Repro here sounds like 4 instances of
pretty dull sounding mediocre freeware synths.

sorry man, just calling it like i hear it. :shrug:

No problem, im open for opinion or suggestion
Yes, the CPU hit for repro is a bit high, although not as bad as diva on my system
I don't do mastering, it bores me :) (maybe i should)
I tried many freeware synths, many sound great, but the workflow in repro is an important reason i bought it
Thanks for having a listen!

well, you know.... its like going out and buying some killer high end home stereo amplifier
and connecting some cheap 3 dollar computer speakers to it.

oh, but i did like the ableton stock drums on your track. :tu:

i think repro sounds pretty glorious generaly speaking, even on 3 dollar speakers
my tracks are dark, muddy, with little to no melody, maybe not the best showcase for repro :)
It reflects my personality im afraid. I mainly use my tracks as background muzac for my animated videos
and true, i use second hand Alesis m1active monitors because well... im a cheapscate lol

It's got a few interesting ideas buried in there, but (for me) it's a bit 'nothingy' at the moment...needs more variation + a hooky lead part of some sort.

Not particularly Weird.

Definitely Ambient.

Definitely Something.
