猫騎士物語 (Cat Knight Story)

I had the little arpeggio-like bit in an Ableton file for a good long while now, I'm happy I picked it back up and turned it into a full song!

Man, sounds great! Stylistically very different. Manages to be both chill and super upbeat at the same time.  Great punchy arps and bass but it's the strings that sound different and give the song melodic heft.

Oh wow the voicing on the arp is so luuuush, you really did it justice with the rest of the song! Great work!

January 13, 2020 1:47 am

Yeah the arps sound great and the whole thing brings a fantastic happy relaxed vibe.  Good times.

Beautiful arp! Nice chill vibe!

So this week it's cats, huh? ฅ(≈>ܫ<≈)

January 13, 2020 12:17 pm

Aah this is so sweet! Love the playfulness between the arp and the bassline. And as always your mixing of the whole is topnotch

January 13, 2020 12:43 pm

Woa this is great, some of these harmonies are very interesting. Nice work on the drum reverbs, I love the details like that. Great stuff all round heart

Vraiment réussis! les especes d'arpeges tout le long de la toune ca marche vraiment bien. Bravo.

January 13, 2020 4:56 pm

Ça feel vraiment rpg. C'est vrai que le jeu de la bass et du arp est vraiment cool! heart

January 13, 2020 4:58 pm

En fait c comme quand tu rentres dans un shop random dans un jeu et pour aucune raison particulière la toune qui joue juste à cette place là dans le jeu est vraiment nice, pi tu te dis hein c cool ça, pi tu chill dans le shop juste pour la track.

A fitting song for the noble cat knight! Cat knights really are the best. Very nice arpy flow.

This is like ear dessert ... a beautiful mix.

I like especially the mysterious scales you use with those arpeggios. Fantastic work, the b-part works fine too. I think it is also a good idea that you bring in the polyphonic pads only in the last third of the song. Gives it nice suspense. I love this...

Love those pleasing arps right from the start!  The chord progression is nice and dreamy and the beat ties it altogether so nicely.  Well done!

January 17, 2020 9:18 am

That's just the most adorable story.

This is synth-tastic! Nice, flowing arps and really dig your production!

Thank you! Yeah I wanted to mix things up a bit, it felt good to try a different style!

Thanks, I had the polyphony going in earlier at some point and 'calmed it down' while adjusting, I'm happy it seems it was the right decision!
