That is a very fine sandwich! Top shelf! This would be right at home in a colorful ps2/dreamcast era japan quirky game smile I would play it just for the music!

Very squishy.  (I don't know how gifs work, but imagine I found one of Dory playing with that jellyfish in Finding Nemo ("I shall call him Squishy and he shall be mine, and he shall be my Squishy") and you get the idea.)  Nice work!

Damn dude, lots of cool stuff going on here. Your use of silence is really awesome in this track, all the quick abrupt breaks give this a super cool feel.  The sweeping arps throughout this are really nice too.

The empty section of this song make all the different parts stand out and get their own credit. Well done dude.

Yeah! I could see it in something like chuchu rocket!

Posting gifs isn't that hard! This site just uses BBCode, which means just putting an img tag around the image link. It's easier if you have a browser extension to copy the link and tag directly from the context menu, I recommend either Easy Image Embed or this one I made for Firefox BBCode Helper. Giphy is my go-to gif site (it also has a youtube-gif converter), but google image search does have a gif filter as well. Hope this helps!

I was a little worried that this track was going to be too herky-jerky, but it got to the point that there was not enough time to go back! Hearing this with fresh ears, I guess it's not that bad; it definitely helps that I added some non-jerky parts to balance it out.

Much like in a jellyfish!

Intricate and nice in a watery way. There were a few pretty interesting harmonic moments, and you have a great ratio of new material / time. Big sin wave energy!

Light and fluffy, like a jelly fish! Really sweet arrangement.

I totally dig the drumming in here. It fits to the synths very well. It is pure fun to listen to it.

It's nice and fast, but is it superfast?

March 20, 2020 2:59 pm

That's a spicy sangwich! As errrbody said, the drums are super toight! (like a toiger).  May I ask how you normally go about your drum tracks?  Is it a painstaking process of drawing in the beats?  Playing some of it?  I don't think I have the patience to even attempt such a feat!  Love the arps throughout and that 8bit sound towards the end.  Yais!

Usually it's playing drums on the keyboard, quantizing if needed, then additional programming in the piano roll. This track features a CR-78 clone I made using Sytrus and Patcher, and an FPC sampled kit that comes with fl studio (HQ Jazz Kit) doubled in Patcher with a random pitch offset for stereo doubling. Usually I record the general beat, then program the rolls in, same with fills, mostly because I have a hard time playing those on a keyboard. I also do some humanizing where it makes sense, I don't always use the grid. I might offset snares and claps a few ms early, kick drum a few ms late, to keep the side-chaining and compression from squishing the snare transients and instrument attacks. I feel like I've done this particular beat so many times, it wouldn't be hard one program out by hand.

In case you missed it, "Superfast jellyfish" is a song by Gorillaz from their Plastic Beach album.

Also, that's one floppy dick.

All the sounds are so springy. Contrast well with the super tight drums. The breaks are funky!
