Variometer

A bit more vague track, than lately, I think. Not any great melodic ideas, more like textures and moods... some progression though. The gear is TR808, Korg ES-1, Yamaha CS-15, Multimoog, Doepfer A100, Korg O1Wfd and Roland Juno 60.

Definitely some interesting moods.  The beginning sounded tense and sinister almost like it could soundtrack a suspense or horror film, but then it kind of went in a more abstract direction and I found myself feeling almost soothed and mellow by the end.

And what a progression it is, even if it's only around the end. The vocal pad is really selling it.

Thanks guys!! For me too this sounds now much better than on the day I got it finished. Nice that it works like that some days and not vice versa as usual. smile.  I forgot to mention in the description that I also fired up my old sampler Akai S2800i for this... there´s a short sample used there from one of my favourite krautrock albums. it comes on after about two minutes...

It is quite the lush synth salad.  Which one did you use for the filtered bass? And what is the CS-15 doing, might be hard to describe. I hear a simple high two and three note monophonic waw waw accent in the second half that sound like it's using Yamaha's high pass filter, but that's just a stab in the dark smile Nice comp!
