crap sounding synths drowned in FX used in this song:

yes, i choose to use a few older, lighter synths routed to quality
effects instead of the big expensive whizbang terabyte sample library synths. but let us not forget the wisdom and insight provided by ANX,the house expert on synths.

the bass is indeed the crap sounding OXEfm, but
drenched in some FX as explained by the house expert ANX.

2019 doesnt look good for it. 1993 was probably the best scenario for it to happen again. sadly, it did not :cry: :cry: :cry:

Nice retro 80/90's flavour (Geeze I am getting old if the 90's are retro). Loved listening to crappy synths drowned in FX, sounds good this end :)

Mystical skill, this drowning in FX, but apparently very well executed. I liked the music. Vocals were a bit strange, kind of Kraftwerk-like, which is a bit risky move nowadays. But good vibes overall.
