Here is my submission, Poly-Ana's Pact.

https://soundcloud.com/apzx/poly-anas-pact
Synth of choice: Admiral Quality's Poly-Ana
DAW of choice: FL Studio 10
FX and the likes: 3x BootEQmkII, 8x Classic Delay, 5x DensitymkIII, 1x RescueAE, 2x SlickHDR, 2x TesslaSE, 11x Fruity ParametricEQ 2, 1x BaxterEQ, 2x PoorPlate, 4x EpicVerb, and 1x LimiterNo6.

All in all a simple piece this one is. Nothing complicated or crazy going on. But it did give me a chance to pull out one of my absolute favorite VAs.

Nice, I like the pounding bass that starts raising in the beginning.

Here's my submission, An Adolescent Wideness...
https://soundcloud.com/cytosonic/cytoso ... adolescent
I used 8 instances of Native Instruments' FM8. All the sounds were made by me specifically for this piece. I used Reaper. All effects, mixing, automation, etc. was done with the synth's parameters (ie. I rendered this "faders up"). I did throw an instance of eaReckon's FR-Comp 87 on the master bus to even up the dynamics a little so I could compete with some of the "dancy-er" entries :wink:

In case anyone's interested, this is a serial composition using the row: 0-1-5-8-4-3-11-6-10-2-7-9. Everything except the bass drum follows your standard matrix execution.

Enjoy!

-Brad

EDIT: Patches are up on the FM8 Download Page.

Ok - finally - my entry for this OSC: "Mechanos" ;)

https://soundcloud.com/telurica/idfpowe ... nos-hydi-2

Given the opportunity, I wanted to support a really dedicated freebie developer (instead of jumping in the cool commercial plugins boat), and Andrew sure fits the profile - what he managed to do with this synth is very impressive. On the other hand HYDi is a darling of mine since it was the spark that ignited my "audio demos for freebie plugins" campaing so a dedicated song for the new version was on my to do list anyway :) Speaking of perfect timing, heh :) I only hope my "creation" will rise to the challenge of showing what HYDi is capable of :)


Ok, now on with the boring stuff:

DAW: FL Studio 9 (song components creation) + Adobe Audition 3 (editing).
21 instances; everything you hear (including the drums) is HYDi.

Effects:
MAGNUS JONSSON - "Ambience" (magnus.smartelectronix.com/)
VOXENGO - "OldSchoolVerb" (www.voxengo.com/group/free-vst-plugins/)
VARIETY OF SOUND - "Baxter EQ" (varietyofsound.wordpress.com/)
VARIETY OF SOUND - "SlickHDR" (varietyofsound.wordpress.com/)
MILDON STUDIOS - "SLVR Exciter" (mildonstudios.com/static/blog.php)
TERRY WEST - "Safe Limit" (www.terrywest.nl)
TERRY WEST - "MHorse P3" (www.terrywest.nl)

...and that's about it :) I hope you like this one (the song) :)

Thanks to: Andrew for creating HYDi, Halma for creating the extra cool presets, Terry West and H.L. Holdberg for the awesome plugins ;)

My entry: https://soundcloud.com/dwsel/dwsel-guit ... labs-mux-1

6 x MUX inside MuLab.
3 x Smart Electronix Ambience reverb
4 x reajs for midi randomization
some internal panning, delays, exciter, saturation
[edit]
forgot to mention 1 x Xoxos Talent for drums

Audacity:
- Dyson Compressor
- Glame Highpass

DR 11

[edit2]
I needed to reupload the track due to noticing some stray drum sample in the previous version. Redid that instance using pure synthesis. In addition I mapped velocity to dampening dynamics in the guitar patch.

In all honesty the 1st one was put together in a hurry to start the ball rolling for that DC, but since then I've wanted to make a proper audio demo track for your synth 'cause IMO is well worth ;) I'm glad you like this one - it's a little "thank you" note for creating and sharing HYDi with us :)
