Man, love those pads at 00:28. So smooth, and they're a real nice support through the rest of the track.

There's something to be said for taking an idea and seeing how far you can take it! Nice work

June 1, 2020 3:07 am

That lead at 1:50.  Yeah...

June 1, 2020 6:39 am

I really need to get deeper into sytrus advanced functions. Downloading your package! Cool piece!

Those pads took me to the spectral plane

Legend, I love how far you've gone with this idea. Very much enjoying the sweeping leads from 1:50, it kinda makes the moment feel harmonically loose, like you're modulating. Cooooooooool heart

Definitely returning to this one when Halloween rolls around. smile

This is some steely dan level chord play! Everything's so tight. Love the those tom rolls and that bass!!

YIKES, I haven't listened to most of your tracks this year!  I am excited to catch up.

The brightness and light touch on the chords, and of course the beautiful arpeggios give me the best Mario Kart Rainbow Road vibe.  Bass is actually really really really good in a perfectly subtle and tight way.

Your gif is perfect for visually describing the arps.

Awww mans, the drank stole my comment!  JK!  But I def was feeling those mariokart cruising track vibes.  The lead synth with those plucky arps are super pleasing to my ears especially on the chorus.  The bendy parts ooooh yais!  Once again your drums always blow mind with their intricacy.  Nice work as always!

everything is where itneeds to be and the sounds go together so well

Hey everyone... sorry I'm super late on all these comments! The last week has brought back a lot of painful emotions for me, and I've just been in a funk. Anywho, I'd like to ask for some support for the Black Trans community. Please donate to some of these charities if you can!

I was pleasantly surprised that I could get a decent sounding brassy instrument by self modulating a single operator! Normally I would have tried to do this with a bunch of operators and filters.

There is also something to be said for just being to lazy to flush out a whole new arrangement!
The first time was tricky; trying to figure out if what I wanted to do could be done, without really knowing until the last minute! Now I find it refreshing not to have a bazillion paralyzing instrument options!

Wobbly sustain; classic crowd pleaser!

I wouldn't say this is as spooky as my Halloween Spooktacular Songs™. Don't worry, October will be full of some proper songs to spook too!

Unfortunately I only have a superficial knowledge of Steely Dan songs, I don't think I've heard their deep cuts. Is there a specific track that this reminds you of? Curious since one of my clients compared a track I did for them recently to Steely Dan, although that one seemed to be more obvious... I might be subconsciously channeling them! Also, glad you liked the bass, I had the bass turned down on my monitors accidentally, so I think I might have over compensated in the mix.

Rainbow Road; the pinnacle of excellence to which all musicians aspire.

Everyone loves my bendy parts apparently!

Glad it sounds that way! It usually sounds all over the place until the last Second!

In general, Donald Fagen liked to combine off color, jazzier chords that compliment and contrast the root, rather than straight on major and minor chords that stick with the root bass notes. It's more clever and a departure from traditional rock or pop. That's what I hear at times in your music. Sorry I can't point to a specific track.  I am only aware of their radio air play hits still widely played on classic rock radio. I also studied audio engineering back in the mid 80s and Steely Dan was one of the bands we studied since their production techniques were extreme and radically different than what was going on at the time of there recordings in the 70s. That's probably why it popped into my head... I'm sure many more current comparisons could be made by younger musicians smile
