Salto Alto

By Gab Manette on April 12, 2020 9:12 pm

Back to synthpop this week, with a hint of italo disco influences. Energetic synth and drums on top of a Pro-One style mono bass. Mixed drumkits again, Linn and Korg M1. I used a lot of reverse reverb in there, I'm starting to get more comfortable with it. It's a wonderful little trick and I really enjoy the punch it adds.

Hope everyone had a good one! See you in the comments!

Oh yes, the good waves.

There's a lot of sick as hell interplay between the different parts in this one. Pretty much impossible to keep your body still while listening to it.

Fun fun fun. smile . Large, synth super marrant, excellent! Joyeuses Paques.

Nice and uplifting and big big synth sounds.  Very nice.

Sweet sounds and a nice, clean mix. Great job!

Makes me want to pick up my cat and dance. I will probably leave the cat alone though, just to be kind.

Fuck, this is such a jam dude.  Really like everything going on in this track, especially the bass.  So fat and so punchy at the same time.  The reverse reverb sounds awesome on the drums too man.  I usually only use it for transitions but it sounds great within the beat.  Need to steal that technique.

Oh that smooth heavy bass and the synth lines. Funky!

Beverly Hills Disco COP! *Eddie Murphy laugh..... Awesome track

Love the Linn Drums / Pro One combo.  A great pairing like the perfect wine and cheese.  Korg M1 sounding like a good bit like a Prophet 5.  The melodic leads are awesome, super tight. Just what my morning needed!

April 18, 2020 4:54 pm

Ooo very large drums indeed. The synth solo midway is probably my favourite part. Very nice job on the rhythm and bassline especially!

April 19, 2020 1:18 pm

Love the reverse reverb. Actually scratch that, I like it all.

April 20, 2020 7:37 pm

Gab, where are you week 16? Missing my synthwave fix. Hope all is well!

April 21, 2020 12:37 am

Good times for sure, I'm in, I'm on this trip. tastay. That gif from IPA above, yeah, yeah, that!

April 23, 2020 1:09 pm

Had me on that reverse snare intro thang.  Super tight drums.  The synth lead in the middle reminds me a bit Jan Hammer's jams. 

April 24, 2020 4:10 pm

That bassline. MMM. And the panned leads working together. Such good. Much amaze.
