Here is a synthwave style track I made for my album "Dreamcatcher." The guitar parts were from Virtual Guitarist Iron. The main synths were a combination of Omnisphere and sounds from the Deepmind 12 (I love this synthesizer). Enjoy!

Would have liked a little more melodic development. Much of the track sounds like a backing track. Mix wise, the upper end could use a little EQ taming. Overall, the volume could come down a db or 2. Not bad. Needs some minor work.

I'm hearing some tuning issues with the main motif ... the track reminds me of some Stock, Aitkin & Waterman stuff from the 80s (kylie, Jason, etc). Mix is ok.

If it was my track, I would make it more lo-fi. Its too bright and shiny for me.
