I don't really do modern synthwave. I prefer to do things closer to how they did them in the 80s. At least I try to.

This is my latest track. There's lots of PG-8x in this.

Hope you enjoy and thanks for listening.

You nailed the style pretty well. Nice mix and production.

Thanks! I listened to 80s music pretty much exclusively for the past 2 years.

Hmm... I think this is one of the best SW pieces I've heard in a looong time.

You nailed the vibe and sound. Production quality is excellent too imo. As much as I love heavy and fast stuff I have a real soft spot for this type of retro music too.

I'm just waiting for Van Damme to appear with his mullet and muscles.

Great work!!

Nice clean mix, you avoided making it too busy. And when the guitars came in, that made my evening.
I enjoyed it a lot. I'm searching for a criticism... hmmm, maybe the bells weren't as good as they could be.
Apart from that, loved it. :tu:

Those bells are all PG-8x. Didn't really do much to them honestly. They sounded ok to me! Thanks for the listen and glad you liked it.
