Now your first track really sounds more complete and interesting. But, given that Hardstyle is only a sketch, I think it would become more promising if you add a few more melodic lines, details... at your creative discretion :roll: I definitely think that Hardstyle is a more powerful track! :phones: :tu:
Thanks IV! You're right the first one is far more elaborate...
A minute ago I have uploaded a extended version of the new track. I've added a little bit more melodic elements. Check it out here: https://soundcloud.com/p-e-t-e-r-h/tone ... le/s-UdpMc

If you might wonder where the Samples saying "Execute Tone Z" is coming from ... https://blog.wavosaur.com/text-to-speech-vst-vst-speek/
Ohh, now it's one of my favorite tracks again! Definitely something catches me in your tracks! Hah, I know about VST Speak, I also have it) But it turns out that this is an additional VST, which means that you made a track with it not as a competitive work, but just for the sake of interest? In any case, it turned out great! :clap:

Thanks IV! And you're right for the OSC Version I have to do a version without the VST Speech elements. I think will do an official track release and an OSC Version. Btw there's still some improvements to come ... ;-)

Hey guys, this is my first OSC ever! The synth is very powerful and easy to use, but it’s a bit buggy sometimes. Here is my submission: https://soundcloud.com/tensorman/stratosphere
Welcome Tensorman and forgive me my bad nerd joke: Finaly the Marvel Superhero with AI superpowers has arrived ... (thinking of googles TensorFlow) ;-)

Regarding your track. It's a nice track. If you ask me for one thing I would do - okay two things... 1.) The pumping is rather exaggerated and may be a Glue Compressor in the Master might help. And 2.) it's overall rather "dry" meaning no reverb at least for my ears.

If you want you could try out the newly released MCharmVerb from Meldaproductions: https://www.meldaproduction.com/MCharmVerb

Thanks for the feedback Peter:H! I was in fact thinking of TensorFlow (in fact, having trouble with it) when I made the name. The pumping, now that you mention, does feel exaggerated (in my previous mix, it was almost nonexistant and I overcompensated). I do have a reverb send but it's barely noticeable so I might try turning it up a bit more. I'm pretty new to mixing so the elements don't always sound right together and feedback is really helpful for me to improve. Thanks!

@Peter:H
Talking about pumping, your piece does give that term a completely new meaning: I don’t need a heart massage... :hihi:
(Or is it called hard massage, as its a hard style???)

Here comes my submission for toneZ:

Amazing synth which runs stable on my system (Win 7, 64-bit). No crashes in Cubase. Ok, when I loaded all instances the DAW began to stutter and I had to increase my buffer size (oh no :-o , the buffer size of my audio interface, of course :D ) .

But now to the track:
To introduce new sounds in the track, I used some well-known riffs. So it became a kind of "Stars on 45" (if you remember) . :band2:

But do you think I went too far? :eek:
Do you think there are any issues with copyrights? :-x

https://soundcloud.com/rockingricky/roc ... d-the-hits

Info:
20 instances in Cubase Elements
DAW-FX:
Reverb
Compressor

other free FX:
MAutopan
MCompressor
MEqualizer
MLoudnessanalyzer
Raum
Pink

Now enjoy and listen for the hits ...

Good luck to all :party:

Raum
I'd say you just stumbled upon some good riffs :phones: :party: :party: :tu: :clap:

Although, Raum was a limited offer, no?

Any who, all :hug:

I updated my track. Not much has changed and the link should stay the same. In case the first link is broken, the track can be found here: https://soundcloud.com/tensorman/stratosphere

Here is my submission for this month's OSC.

https://soundcloud.com/baalisoda/reminiscence

Track Details:
DAW - FL Studio
ToneZ = 7 Instances
Presets = Modified the existing patches and INIT patch to suit my needs

FX used (No DAW native effects, only freeware third party VST plugins were used)
Delay = Classic Delay by Kjaerhus x 4
Reverb = DragonFly Reverb x 5
Compressor = TDR Kotelnikov x1
EQ = BaxterEQ by Variety of Sound x1
Exciter= Reviber by 1208 Audio Plugins x1
Saturation: FerricTDS by Variety of Sound x1
Brickwall Limiter/Maximizer = LoudMax x1
Loudness measurement = Youlean Loudness Meter (Free) & Voxengo SPAN

Had few issues with the VST as it was not remembering the presets when the project file was reloaded, and the CPU usage was atrocious for most parts. Didn't use the built in FX of the VST as it wasn't matching to my taste. Otherwise, everything was fine.

Cheers!

Ouch! :shock: ... you are right :!:

"Raum" isn't free anymore, :dog: but I used it slightly and so it will be no big deal to replace it with another reverb.
I will upload my track again.

Thanks for the hint, Eauson :tu:

Now I updated my track on SC without the RAUM-plugIn (otherwise Brian would disqualify me instantly :o )

Hi folks … I have updated my Polka track - 4 more Tonez (and 4 ReaEQ and 3 Midi Note Filter). Added some more percussion payers - got a much better ride cymbal for the second sections!! Also re-imagined the piano sound with different patches (and EQ) for the upper and lower registers. Also brought the piano up in the mix.

Please re-enjoy :party: :party: :party:
