Nice , a little quirky, but I like it.
Some good vibe changes interspersed. Mixed well.
You get some good sounding songs out of non-expensive plugins like Obxd.
:tu:
thanks for the listen, Bansaw.
yeah, this was an odd one for the "it almost happened" album.
i had been neglecting obxd, it really can sound interesting.
the entire song was a sound design smorgasbord.
each instrument sound got lotsa TLC.

Very surreal approach. The sound design is quite engaging, not everyday stuff. Also the driving feel comes in nice. Good work.
Greetings

Great track. I like the energy, the sounds, the mix, the composition, everything. My only complaint would be raised against this ugly picture.

Sounds like an edgy spy/sci-fi series theme tune to me : 1970's meets 1980's - very evocative. Netflix commissions beckon? :)

Very cool sounds including some textures that I haven't heard from you before. Perfect mix. :phones:


Just think how much easier maintaining your wavetable directories would be with Powershell on Windows 10. Just kidding. :hihi:

Man I would of killed for that book when I was a kid. I got other books out of the library and actually wrote some pretty good games, if I do say so myself.

Frantz, ATS... i spent many hours in radio shack in front of their display TRS-80 Model4 with that book... till i was
told to leave. then i would go next door to the Mongomery Ward Dept store to write pograms on the display
vic-20 they had there... programs like:

5 cls
10 input"what is your name?";n$
20 CLS
30 Print "you are an idiot, ";n$
40 for a=1 to 3000:next a
50 goto 5

My Dad had a "laptop" that was more like a huge suitcase. The front opened up and a little black and white (well green and black) screen was there and a floppy drive next to it. I spent a lot of hours on that thing.

i even wrote this batch file that moves the created wavetables

that process up! :lol:
