Never heard of your used plugins, but sounds nice. The sound effects remind me of late 80s tv sequels, also the harmonies could stem from that time. Nice work.

they are older 32bit plugs from 10 years ago,
i have this theory about lighter CPU, good sounding older synths
vs the modern CPU hogs. And the EnergyXT2 Daw i use is just over 1mb portable installer-less exe.
but i use good effects and a special mastering technique
to get my signature overall sound :wink:

i recently picked up Luxonix Purity from 2007 second hand. People are literally throwing away 32bit only vsts. Great rompler sounds on it. It is right at home with KLC M1 8)

im not a big fan of modern electronic music
so much of my work will sound 80's and 90's
influenced. thanks for taking a moment to check it :phones:

This was really cool, definitely enjoyed the progression of the song and the elements that you add as you go. The melodies have an interesting vibe, setting the mood for something not so pleasant around the corner, feeling of danger so to speak.

Thanks for sharing!

While I don't need heating up in Australia I still enjoyed the energy of this and the nice elements that flow in and out...
Thanks for sharing your synth setup. Interesting...
Well done!

It's got a bright, almost happy atmosphere, with its upbeat style, but, as JKillz mentioned, there is a darker, more ominous undercurrent, due to the presence of the bass and choir pads. Quite cinematic.

Good work :)
