More tinkering and tripping out on the sounds of the Deluge. Wasn't really trying to create a song with a start and a finish, was more trying to just follow the flow and enjoy making sounds. That's why it sounds like there are two songs in here. There were almost three, but I cut that off before it got too ugly. Maybe next week?

Nice textures, i like the large wine glass like layer and the melodies under it for the first half. The vibrato effect mid point around 2:20 is interesting, it gives another feel that I don't remember hearing in your previous tracks. The rising synths under from 2:50 are a nice touch, some of these synths have a synthwave like quality. Me likey. smile and that ebbs away in a delicate ending. Nice work!

Some interesting sound explorations going on and definitely changes its vibe considerably as it goes, but it felt like a journey that hit some different scenery along the way.  Nice groove at the beginning and cool ambience by the end.

It is calm lovely ambient again this week. smile On 1st half it sounds you walk inside a colorful peaceful town. And on 2nd half is in the air and I see floating over this town watching everything above. So nice!

Brinstar... Have you been playing some Metroid lately? This is the perfect track to help me unwind on a Sunday night, really enjoy the way it gently unfolds.

Thank you! It is nice when the experimentation results in a few sounds that are pleasant on the ears.

Thanks! Last week I tried to get away a little from writing "a song" and focus more on just playing.

I haven't recently, but I have lots and lots of fond memories. For some reason the name just came to me when I was uploading the track, and I figured it had a small bit of sci-fi vibes to it.

I was getting a Metroid feel from this along with Sodabelly. What you're making with the Deluge is really neat. Last week and this week it seems you are working with the Deluge. Is that a new instrument of yours?

The clicks at the start of the bell sound worked for me. Usually I'm increasing the Attack and decay to reduce it, but you found a nice point where the pop sound isn't extreme and where it adds character to the sound.

Thanks so much! A lot of my synth stuff is just a search for sounds that play nice together.

I got the Deluge at the start of the year just before Tokyo announced its state of emergency, but it was (and is) very overwhelming for a novice like myself, so I found myself sometimes avoiding it. The last couple of weeks I've been approaching it with more of a focus on experimentation and learning, and I want to think it's helping. Also, thanks for noticing the bell sounds; like you I tend to increase the attack to get rid of it, but this happy accident felt good so I kept it.

Soothing selection of sounds in this.  It took me back to Moby's 'Ambient' album a bit with it's laid back chords.  Well done!

Very chill. Not quite the Brinstar I remember, but definitely one to aspire to.

Admittedly, it's getting harder and harder for me to come up with titles that start with the letter b and also match the track.

Definitely some really cool sounds on here.  I'm really into that bouncy, higher bass part in the first half.
