haha weird coincidence, I was just in the process of commenting your track.

The VST is ok, TBH I only used "presets" and didn't mess around with deeper editing yet. I really like I got it for 50% and it has all these instant 80-90s sounds available! This was my first song with it tho.

You should check some tunes by Matt Nida from back in WB'2014. He takes the M1 and somehow got some modular-esque atmosphere when we all just see the "00-Universe" string patch.

Would it be great to play Sam & Twitch along with this joint smile

Not bad! I dig the piano lead with the bluesy feel and the sinister vibe is cool too... felt a bit short to me though... would love to see you develop this into something longer and see where you can take it! Keep it up!

haha the worst part is, not really! I know depeche mode but not that much, and never heard of Fad Gadget yikes I guess it's just the M1 speaking wink

I thought the whole vibe was in that vein, hehe!

How can a jazz scale not make you smile? It's fun to invent stories to go with this track smile

^_^ I love how you know about all the scales and time signature theory... to me it's all still very unknown as I play it all by ear. For instance, I notice you write down transposition numbers for your tracks but I have not idea what it means hehe

It's not hard! Transposition numbers tell you how many semitones to count to reach the next note.

Here are a couple examples:
The major scale C D E F G A B C becomes  2 - 2 - 1 - 2 - 2 - 2 - 1.
The minor blues scale C Eb F F# G Bb C becomes 3 - 2 - 1 - 1 - 3 - 2.

aaaaaah, yes I should've known that! I need to learn more scales... what scale is mysterious, minor, a bit nostalgic maybe?

Russia's Shostakovich scale: 1 - 2 - 1 - 3 - 1 - 2 - 2.
