The melodies and 505/626 drums make me feel happy. Looking forward to more of this throughout the year!

I Love the hardware selection you have going on here!
I've got a Minibrute, not a Micro, barely explored it yet... you inspire me to..

Great arrangement !

This reminds me of the song from exactly 4 years ago, I guess it's an anthem for a reason.

I like your leads and pads. You have a penchant for nice patches on older synths. Some chip synths? Are the sounds I'm hearing mostly hardware or soft?

All Hardware... I'm too old school to use software and am more of a tweaker. I hand play everything from physical gear.

Nice. I thought I was the opposite, preferring software over hardware, but I recently bought my 1st modular synth (Novation Circuit) and I'm really taking to it. I'm from the old skool too and I forgot how much I appreciated just plugging stuff in and working it.  Any good references for basic synthesis? I just need a primer on Osc, LFOs, Mixers, Amp, and waves. Most of the ones I've found online are for specific synths. Useful, but not what I'm looking for.
