Remember when I wrote that I'm going to produce more ambient tracks? Well, I lied! I was jamming on the train this week and came upon that motif and I stuck to it until I got this result. It's definitely a bit more melodic than the previous 2 tracks but I think it still has enough ambiance.
I recently made some new patches with the Deluge, especially using single-cycle waveforms (which made my instruments sound a bit less electronic and hopefully a bit more organic) and decided to finally save them as patches for future use. I realise this was a good idea because when I'm crafting a new sound, I can still re-use those patches as a basis and it allows for more personal sound design.
Thanks for your feedback and have a nice week!

I'm not sure if I can trust you anymore, but with sounds like these, you can get away with a lot worse.

Love the percussion. It's a bit subtle but it really keeps the track moving. So awesome that you're making patches on the Deluge. It's something I'd like to work my way towards, too.

Well I made synth patches on the Deluge from the start but what's new now is that I get a bit more professional by saving them as reference for future patches. Also, I used mostly basic waveforms for the oscillator until now and now using single-cycle waveforms allows me to create sounds with more texture.
