Recently, I started work on creating analog sounds for my Virus TI. As part of the process, I also worked with a cover on Jean Michel's Oxygene 2.
Here is the result of my version of the song.
All sounds are made on my Virus. And, I hope you like it.

not bad, 16th hats could be a little louder. one thing i would change even in the original
is all the pew pew pew phazer sound effects that sound off throughout the
entire song. or at least cut back on them as IMHO, they get annoying and just
clutter things.

Thank you for listening and your response 8)
Well, I could have generally had a higher level of drums overall. And you have a point, I think that finding the right level on drums is among the most difficult that is

Yeah, the Virus, my favourite synth evah :party: :love:

Enjoyed the track, really well done, though I would slighlty quantize some of the solo parts, some of the notes sound way too off the grid (I guess it was played by hand? This is always good but some slight midi edits woldn't hurt imo)
I hate incomplete sentences because they ...

Yes, that's correct. Everything was recorded by hand. It's only basically the drums and the base (and the arpeggi line) that are quantized.
There's some stuff that is not corrected after I recorded and I let it be. Most to create a sense of loose and live feel to the character of the song.

Thank you for your listening 8)

Nice recreation just using the Virus, such a versatile synth. You recreated those annoying EMS VCS blips and squeaks well.

Yes, all sounds are made on my Virus TI.
The funny thing was that flute sounds were the most difficult sounds to create
