Gotta wip, it's a weird one, but Surge rules in my book.

Some unusual sound design there ...interesting. Still i prefer that 90-s thing you made earlier it rocks.

Current progress. Not 100% happy with this but might push it over the finish line. Some parts still feel empty or clunky, also needs polish & proper mixing.

Really cool sounds there! Arrangement could do some work, feels like a sound design playground in places :D

Ha, thanks. Surge is easy to get a little carried away with!

Still WIP but... oh boy my track got a new life by transposing it one semitone up and increasing tempo from 110 to 116. Sounds so much fresher! Also extended the "C part" in the middle of the song, feels like I'm much closer to the goal now.

@ilmai the tempo change definitely made an improvement. That happens to me a lot, too. Write something, come back later and it's draaaaggiiiiiing.

This is my entry for the OSC #122. Tried to create a track in psy-trance genre and I probably bit off more than I could chew, because I felt that my current sound design and mixing skills aren't sufficient enough for this genre, but well... at least I tried my best. Had to do a ton of sound design and funny thing - I wasn't sure whether I can use waves from wavetable, so I sticked to sine and saw waves (I probably used triangle once) :lol:
