turn of the millenium (KORG Gadget WIP)

By bryface on February 21, 2016 11:59 pm

KORG Gadget had a major update (per-track EQ, user interface improvements) so i thought this would be a good time to dive back into that app!  i don't know why but this started off real demostyley so i went full early 2000's PC demo advent-of-softsynth a e s t h e t i c

i went pretty heavy on the number of machine modules this time, like around 11 or so.  4 of them are for rhythm! (one of them used the semi-modular synth module for a lot of the rhythmic textures).  i probably halved my iPad's shelf life with this one - using all these modules ate up battery like a beast.  without charging, this tune would have depleted all of the charge in about 2 hours!!

i have some more stuff in mind for this tune arrangement-wise, but alas i just don't have enough time this week between work and other projects.  i'll probably end up fleshing it out a bit more to soundcloud or something.

Pretty impressive!

On a peripheral note: when did "say it with GIFs" replace written comments?

DOPE  I love this demoscene stuff.  I can't exactly put my finger on what makes it demostyley, but it really is.  What is the secret sauce?????
