Like everybody else in the western hemisphere, I finally got along to binge-watching "Stranger Things," and was mostly blown away by the opening credits sequence. One of my pieces a few weeks ago got a John Carpenter comparison, but this week I set out with creating a conscious homage.
Well, they say that innovation in music comes when artists attempt to ape their influences and fail...
Fun fact: I didn't realize the default algorithm on Operator was for FM synthesis until this week. No wonder all my sounds turned out much stranger [things] than intended
Pads on Operator with my new favorite trick: auto filter + quantize beat. Also chorus, autopan, sidechain compression and reverb
Bass also on Operator, plus "warm up lows" saturator and sidechain compression
Other synth sound also also on Operator, plus phaser and sidechain compression
Ostinato synth on analog plus some reverb. All the other sounds were sidechained to this... first time I've used sidechain compression that it actually gave a nice pumping sound to the whole thing.
Everything sent through a Warm Analog Master
Piece named after the 31st moon of Saturn, also an ice giant who birthed the Norse Godking
