Oh, I made this one from little snippets of my barely used Yamaha RMX1. I don't know what's with those grooveboxes, but I never get to create anything beyond a few boring bars.

Time was short and I had to complete everything Sunday evening, so I basically bounced some isolated patterns and remix them in Ableton, adding some brief delay and filter sidechained to the amplitude of the main bass synth chord.

It's nothing fancy. Maybe somewhat silly, even. Would call this ambient but I think it has some incomplete groove waiting to happen.

I hope someday I'd be capable of a complete track in my RMX1...

Raymond Scott would be proud.

Whoah Jim! I'm quite a fan of Scott's word. That's a huge compliment for me smile

Thanks a lot, again.

I like this piece--it's definitely got a suggestion of groove, but it also stands well on its own--the sequenced part is propulsive, and the melodic movement is open--it's giving enough pitch variety to be interesting, but it's not overbearing.  Nice track to hang out to.

Thanks a lot, Maurice! I got quite fond of it after listening to it the day after. I tossed it quite quickly using just my own "abandoned" Yamaha loops which, on their own, didn't frankly made me feel anything (this is me and my old same sad story with "grooveboxes").

I think it will make a suitable ingame music for something puzzle based, for example.

Wow, that box looks like a lot of fun!  Great sounds you have here.  I never heard of Raymond Scott before, will have to look up his work.  Any recommended starting points?
