Okay, based on what you are saying here... and listening to a couple of your compositions...killmaster wrote: ↑Thu Jun 17, 2021 8:43 amI'm never sure how to answer that question I experiment with sounds mostly, then try to make a "song". I don't have a style per se. I am always looking for new sounds with a lot of movement and change in them. My favorite synth lately has been Plasmonic. I use MPE keyboards almost exclusively and I'm always looking for sounds I haven't heard before. I steer away from conventional lead or bass or typical sounds associated with popular music synth sounds. Here are some of my songs but lately I've been branching into more improvisation and atmospheric carnival like music and less studio sequencer tracking approach. I want to be able to perform them live one day. Hope to post some soon. They'll be mostly live performances touched up in a DAW.
Bazille plus a sampler. I also use hardware for the type of stuff you are talking about. I turn on audio recording and have at it with my Elektron machines and/or eurorack and then cut up stuff from that to play in a sampler (Bitwig's Sampler is what I use) or just use in the timeline. I do the same thing with Bazille as well as play my presets via MPE. The Bazille sound quality is wonderful. It can sound so organic!
I don't find Icarus to have the sound quality that satisfies me for this sorts of stuff. Mostly it always sounds like a synth.
Vital is also fun for sonic exploration. May not be pertinent to you, but Brian confirmed he will release a native Apple Silicon version of Plasmonic.
