This week I've been trying to manage lots of small things that were posponed or forgotten in life, while struggling to find some inspiration. Pretty busy, it was really hard to come with at least a half-baked idea.

I made the decision of letting go some gear I've got and stick with the software route. It's not a philosophycal decision to me -  no "warm of hardware vs coldness of the screen" - simply a lot of space and time constrains. I'd prefer to have less equipment and concentrate on mastering certain techniques.

And that's how I arrived to the excellent tracker/modular SunVox, an amazing small yet incredibly powerful software that you all should try if you have a moment. I built this one just to grab the basic concepts and, though the structure is quite poor, i was happy with it as a proof of concept, more less.

Made all my final mastering in Ableton Live 9, where I added some ambience and a few filter sweeps here and there. There are certanly mistakes but I took it as a proof of what the program could do. I will continue working with it, for sure

Any other SunVox users out there? Please share the love and have a great week !!!

Thank you Matthias. I'm sure you'd love SunVox because of its modular nature. It's also extremely portable and multiplatform... Even runs on Palm devices!

Yeah, this works!
I've been meaning to go through the SunVox tutorials so I can work on my phone during my commute.

Nice.

Autechre moment of the week!
Again: perfect balance in this track, great percussion. It also has an epic feel to it. Been watching Game of Thrones? wink

Whoah, glad you found some Autechre vibes here. Their sound always seemed to "unachievable" for me. Also very surprised about the epic appreciation... Not really a fan of the show, but the score is quite nice indeed, and I'm quite flattered.

Thanks for listening and commenting, mate smile

Thank you, Mysterioso. I truly recommend the app. It's totally selfcontained and quite powerful. Also when rendering to master with your DAW of choice, it gives you a whole set of choices so you could split the tracks from a mixdown stereo to a complete "disection" per module.

Have a look at the tutorials on the site. They're quite fine to get started smile

I'm leaving a comment here so I can maybe remember to tell a colleague of mine about this since she uses SunVox.

I listened to this with headphones and with my eyes closed and I think it may have reprogrammed my brain.

Oh, that would be much appreciated. I'd love to share some tips because I'm very new to the platform. Thanks for the heads up!

Love the crunch of the beats, I do hear a bit of Autechre in there but it also reminded me of NIN's Year Zero album at times (particularly the sounds from Great Destroyer)  Nice job!

Nice work!  Clean sounds :-)  Great combination of tonal qualities. I'm always impressed with what I hear out of Sunvox

Thanks Eric! Never been much aware of NIN's music apart from some of their major hits, although I've followed some other Trent Reznor endeavours. I guess I should check them out properly.

I'm sure that you could do wonders with it, as the incredible tracker you are! Thanks for listening, cTrix smile

The beginning repeating synth sound reminds me of an electrical power plant juicing up the city, which I love! From what I've been hearing, sounds like you've also been getting into more bit-crushy kind of sounds.
