Follow the fireflies

A quick upload after a crazy week. I grabbed some VCV Rack renders from back in 2018 and pasted them by ear. No specific tempo, and no time to search for the original VCV project (which I normally keep next to the render).

I drenched everything in interacting reverb and delay, plus pitchshifters making the echoes one octave bellow and a fifth above. Instant ambient I guess...

I've been given a new destination and looking for a flat during the pandemic is tricky. I was planning to share with the other person in the shift but things got tricky, because this guy rented a flat but didn't actually checked the state of the premises (no, don't trust a fancy iPhone video where all the failing appliances and broken locks are carefully hidden).

I'll now try to upload last week (49) which got lost in all the chaos. Just 5 more days and I will be back at home. Looking forward to it

Love you all around the world, WB family. Stay magical as usual, and be safe wink

Good luck finding a flat! I had to move during the pandemic and it's a little crazy that they don't let you see the place first sad

Super chill and relaxing. Nice work!

Thanks a lot, Mission Crossing smile

Yes, indeed it's quite stressful. Here in Spain every "comunidad autónoma" (our sort of states) have their own rules. We can check the places, but since we do 12 hour shifts / 15 days straight, it's difficult to fit that with the Realstate schedules (and they wan't to do quick deals with tourists instead of long term tennants).

This place turned to be somewhat mixed. The flat had a lot of hidden defects, but it's fine considering the really limited time we had to look around.

I guess moving right now sucks globally wink Where are you based IRL, by the way ?

The reverb and delay really elevates this track, nice ambient tune to drift off too.  Hopefully the search for a new place goes well, not sure how it is in Spain, but crazy thing here in Canada homes are selling so fast and prices are still rising during the pandemic.

Excellent reverb and delay effects.  Those synth stabs are sharp!  Sounds really cool over the riverbed of ambient synths.  very cool!

Yeeeessss! Laguna is back! Sorry I have missed out on some of your later tracks, I'm gonna listen through them. This one is fantastically dreamy and yet so crisp. I wanna fall down into the imaginative abyss this track embeds! Well done!
