"Hey, put on your retro sports jacket and get in my spaceship for a bit of action before we watch another episode of "30something"!"

Okay, here goes nothing - time to wrap it up and start a new Surge project: My entry this month :D

I call it Floating in Space (Cocktails) - I strongly considered adding a '90 at the end, but I really gotta stop naming all my songs after the period they sound like! Anyways, some jazzy stuff this time.

I don't know why, but the last two months have been the most fun I've had making music in a long time. Love the synths and I really feel like I'm getting somewhere with my mixes. Oh, well - enough with the self-congratulatory praise - here's the tune!

Oh, and Surge is a wonderful synth - thanks for keeping it alive and well, guys!

https://soundcloud.com/terjefjelde/floa ... -cocktails

DAW: PreSonus Studio One Professional
Instances of Surge: 34, all from scratch - no waveforms for drums or perc.

Efx:
ProEQ (25)
BootEQmkII (17)
Slax (7)
IVGI (3)
DD Delay (1)
DD Autopan (4)
DD Reverb (1)

Master chain: BootEQmkII -> DD Reverb -> TDRVos SlickEQ -> ProEQ -> TDR Nova -> ProEQ -> Unlimited

Got it! I'll see you sooner than Ken Olin can put on some Steely Dan! (too obscure for a reference in 2019? Never!)

I'll be able to tell my grandkids that I knew Terje before he was famous

Sweet, I wanted to see a one synth challenge with this synth. Also, a one synth challenge with some old rob papen plugins (Albino?) would be amazing

I think Guenon's street rave spilled over into my middle school orchestra concert.

Awful, Michael, simply awful! Try again! Heh, the only thing missing is the conductor frantically hitting the music stand with his baton at the end :-D

Man, cut em some slack! They haven't even hit puberty yet!... well, except for the bass drum player (held back a few times) and completely missed his cue!
