Phase misfit

By laguna on July 31, 2016 11:41 pm

Sleepy music from this very sleepy composer... zzZZzzZZ!!!

I'm rediscovering some excellent free and open source synths, like SynAddSubFX and in this case, Dexed. It's a fully working 6-Operators FM DX7 clone which could even be used as an editor for the real thing, supporting all the original patches. I was really tempted to go all the "Take my breath away's Electric Bass preset" way, but instead used some dreamy FM presets to build this one.

I know it's really simple, and maybe it could use some more elements, but I'm really really tired and maybe I guess it has some nursery rhyme charm to it.

Just four tracks, and three sends. I hope to have the time to post a few pictures of the arrangement. Do yourselves a favour and please try Dexed smile

And if helps you relax and close your eyes, I could only wish you good dreams smile

Have a nice week!!!

Oh, thanks mein Freund! The actual chops belong to "The Vibrettes - Humpty Dump". I chopped the break and tried not to steal the flow, but build my own groove.

Taken from vinyl, then uploaded to Youtube by a kindred spirit, and then turned back to mono 16 bit and resampled by me smile

Indeed! Of course your project is quite more elaborated as usual and mine sounds like "4 bars and a beat" smile

I'll try to load your patch in Dexed, so I also can enjoy the "toy keyboard" vibe...

I love how clean that synth sounds. I gotta try it at some point. I could probably use this track to lull me to slumber. Great stuff.

Great ambiance; the drums really anchor things.

Loving the drums and beat, the FM ostinato, and those ghostly pads drifting in and out like so much cosmic dust.  It's like wandering around an unfamiliar, nearly empty city at 3:30 in the morning.

Love the feel of the grimy beat with the sparkly fm sounds.  Excellent mellow out track. smile
