Some old (like 10 years) Reaktor ensembles.
BFD for drums.
Arturia Vocoder.
Mild bitcrushing on the vocals.
Absynth (so it doesn't die) for bass synth.

If any wants the lyrics, I can post them.
edit: added alternate mix.

Thank you Rene. Unfortunately, my brother isn't going to make it. I was really close to him (we talked everyday), and we both loved music. He was a programmer and developed a few plugins. This is his KVR page: https://www.kvraudio.com/developer/austen. Reading his responses on the discussion page for VOSIM synth reminded how generous he was. It will be difficult to move on without him.

Thank you again for your kind words.

having to listen to this in extremely cheap headphones but sounds good (as far as I can tell). Song was totally cool. Enjoyed it a lot. Had trouble understanding a lot of the lyrics but that doesn't bother me at all really. I rarely pay attention to the actual vocals, they just seem like another instrument to me really.

Man it has been ages since I even opened Reaktor. I am not sure why. I'll have to get back on that one. It was so fun to explore different people's ensembles and all.

Thanks for commenting ATS. Glad you enjoyed.

I sort of feel the same way about vocals most of the time. But I find it fun to write lyrics. I've enjoyed using the old ensembles, and the Reaktor Blocks sound great.

Genetic_Junk,
Thank you for the review. Now your song: this song is really bizarre! I have the Arturia Vocoder (part of the Arturia V-Collection 8 that I have): curious how you used it in your song. Did you run your own vocals through it? I like the synths. The melodies grew on me more after the second listen. Audio quality is good. It's certainly not boring! Rather creative.

This is super fun! So weird, it a very good way. I really like the rock opera quality.

Thanks aaron. Yeah it is pretty strange. I ran my own vocals through the Vocoder. In this track I used it as a kind of a bass instrument.

This is a snippet of the vocoder soloed: https://archive.org/download/IA16V/Irra ... ple%20.mp3

This is snippet of the vocals with vocoder: https://archive.org/download/IA16VS/Irr ... xample.mp3

The way to set up the Arturia vocoder: The vocoder VSTi is placed on a track with the vocal melody as MIDI. The recorded vocals are on a second track and routed to the track containing the vocoder VSTi.

Thank you for commenting. :)

Your song gives me a lot of feelings. The intro takes me back to the 90s when I used to pause my snes to listen to the music.
The effects you got going on makes me think of Owlcity - Fireflies which is the only thing else I can relate to as I haven't heard many things similar to this. It feels like it has a lot of personality in it, I like that.

So much fun! Zany even. Great sounds. Your vocal delivery reminds me a bit of the new Panda Bear/Sonic Boom album.
I'll have at least another listen when I'm home from work.
Thanks for sharing!
