Folks, I think you really need to appreciate train-composing for what it is.
Oh, certainly! There are some great songs/pieces of music that use a train-like cadence:

- Queen - Breakthru
- AC/DC - Whole Lotta Rosie
- Grieg - Holberg Suite (pt.1)
- Guus Meeuwis - Per Spoor (Kedeng Kedeng) :hihi: (this reference is for the Dutchies here, but you could always try and Google it. :hihi:)
- and who could forget the immortal evergreen: I'm a Train by Albert Hammond

Jer, instead of trying to cancel the train cadence you could always use as the base for a track/song! ;)

However, more lists! What are you top 5??

1. Omnisphere 2.5
2. Omnisphere 2.4
3. Omnisphere 2.3
4. Omnisphere 2.2
5. Omnisphere 2.1

There's just something about Omnisphere's STEAM Engine that tends to work well for me on trains.

I also play around with the TrainYourEars EQ Edition sometimes.

No Trains in Hawaii really, at least none that will take you anywhere. For a while
we had hydrofoils, but they kept running over the whales so were shut down.

We can travel by canoe though... So my top 5 canoe synths would probably
be (not in any particular order) Zebra, Repro, Aalto, Kaivo, Tal MOD...

On iPad:
Seaboard 5D, Phonem, Springsound, Animoog, Quanta

but also on Macbook Air 11":
Equator, Bitwigs internal synths, Reaktor, Kaivo

Its funny if I unpack either my Linnstrument or the Seaboard Block. After a while I have to put off the headphones and play for a miniature audience,. If kids are there, they want to play also...; - )
But mostly I program just a bit in Max/MSP...
