It’s a trance song in a major key. What is there to say about it?

===

Mon, Aug 29, 21:00 - 22:20. It’s a short week today, I won’t have the full time to make a song.

Tue, Aug 30, 20:45 - 22:05. Finish up the cheese.

Things that I ended up doing slightly differently in this song:

1. Nord Lead sounds for the block chords. Using two slightly different chord sounds for contrast.

2. Using chords with 9ths and 13ths.

3. An 8-bar chord progression. I didn’t record the progression exactly, but it’s a variation of I V vi IV, everyone’s favorite.

4. I used a drum synth for some of the drum sounds.

5. Some Massive sounds from scratch, despite the fact that they’re not really groundbreaking in any way.

Total time: 2h 40m
