Put this together over a couple of days in the countryside of Tochigi prefecture, to a background of chirping frogs hidden in nearby rice fields. The mix is far from perfect, but I captured the main melodies that were stuck in my head and had a lot of fun with percussion and idea building. I'm really enjoying the op-z as a travel-size synth idea generator; it weighs practically nothing and is easy to pack, but there's so much I can do with it now that I'm more comfortable with the general workflow.

This has a nice spring morning vibe and yes, you should have recorded the frogs as ambient percussion!!!

Were you enjoying the onsen there? If so, I'm very jealous!

This is a great track, it would feel right at home in an indie videogame.

Such a sweet track. The instruments are gain staged nicely. I really like the kick and how you brought in the drum elements. Great work. I found once I got used to my recording software, things moved more quickly. I'm glad that's happening with you and the op-z.

I wish I was, but I was just enjoying the quiet of the countryside.

It feels good to have a better grasp on how the basic components work together, because it allows me more space to tinker and explore. smile

Very lovely song. Can't wait to hear what else you can come up with.

Really calming peaceful track.  I enjoyed the marimba/bellish melody especially.  Well done!

I guess I'll have to get some frog samples next time I'm in the countryside.

Thanks! I'm thinking I might try playing with more samples at some point.

I have a real serious soft spot for the bell-like sounds on the op-z. I think they probably feature in almost everything...

Totally should sample the surrounds and add to the track if the OP-Z can do that?  I know the OP-1 definitely can.  Lovely chill vibes.
