WB 05 - Keys

By Jamatar on February 2, 2020 6:19 am

Well, ran out of time again this week haha. But I got my Volca Keys back off my mate so I thought I'd see how big I could make it sound!

This track is just 2 tracks of Volca Keys and one kick track, lots of effects and a bit of time spent on the melody. I'm pretty surprised at how big it sounds, considering the Volca is pretty damn entry level.

Some heavy EQing on the main arp and lots of verb and shiz on the rest. Heavy low pass on the kick too big_smile

ENORMOUS! Love how you're pushing these synths. Fantastic ARP work and such a buttery smooth sound!

Just goes to show you that even entry-level instruments can sound massive in the right hands! Fantastic.

Yes indeed! Epic trance riser from such a small box

I'm sure Tiësto and Van Buuren would approve.

Impressive production work, considering the source material.

I definitely believe the best dance synths are simple! A good filter and some squares or saws and you're set. This has me dancing in my seat!
