Sports with my Love

By djippy on August 25, 2020 6:28 pm

Early upload this week. I had a pretty good session yesterday evening, maybe 3 hrs to get this done. Then did tweak some fx and edits today at the same time as I am working. I don't want to do much more on this one... It is my synth pop song of the year. It is not serious, but I did really try to make is sound ok. I would have to do a lot to be at Gab Manette level but the song makes me smile. Hope it will make you smile too.

All is done with dexed (FM synths) except for the drums that are Linn Drums samples that I was able to find online.

Some reverb and chorus on top.

Lyrics (not too proud of those, but this is what came to me):

My love
I am naked
Alone
On my bed

I just showered
My big muscles are ready to do sports

I want do sports with you my love
I want do sports with you cause I am alive

POP!?

Yes this is me but I am fatter now... smile

Fun synth pop song and pretty impressive for being outside your usual style.  I like the vocal effect that comes in towards the end.  Also a great joyous picture to accompany the track.

Linn Drums are so iconic in the whole synth pop spectrum and sound super nice here. I stumbled across a big file of drum samples online that has all the classic machines if you ever need extras smile

Thanks, I wanted to do a "stupid transposition" in the song and I am lazy so I just copy pasted then pitch shifted my vocals at the end with the stock "tuner" plugin of Cockos Reaper. It is very cheezy and I think it is fun.

Hé, thanks a lot for the offer. I really don't think I'll go there often so not sure if I'll take the offer, but if the sample pack is not too big, sure, why not. I hope I was able to kind of create the aesthetic of the 80's.

The drums are huge. You've got the voice for this style for sure.

Love the retro sounds you pulled together for this

Nice, this is classic! Gives me some Boy Harsher vibes.

Ha, yes sports are fun. This is fun smooth track. Nice FM sounds. Cheers to doing sports!

Synth pop! 80s vibe there though the voice has a different vibe of course. I like the drum sound, just perfect for this!

Huge 80s vibe especially with the toms in the drum section.  Nice work!

Enjoying the feel. The snare and clacks were spot on.

ha ha, awesome picture of you!

LinnDrums sound great, I kinda want them a little louder.

Also, Gab Manette is SOOOOO overrated wink smile heart jk!

The transposition vocals at the end are hilariously cute
