You're Not Special

By NWSPR on October 14, 2018 11:51 pm

This week, more New Wave mostly from Logic, the Arturia BeatStep and a little from the Korg.  I was going to do vocal arrangement so I left spots where vocals should go, and I left in the beginning of a chorus. But I take more than a week to figure out vocals, so did not try to over do it. Overall, very pleased with myself smile

Hope you're all well and look forward to hearing some new tracks and saying hello in the comments.

Nice fun energy.  I like the synths sound kind of like sprinklers run through a phaser.  And the vocals are a great addition.  I feel properly not special now.

Heheh: "sprinklers through a phaser." Excellent (perhaps special?) work here! Great vocals.

This is such a hit. Got lost in writing an email and tabbed over to Spotify to favorite this song. Completely forgot I was listening to weekly beats ... well done!  The vocoder is perfect. Super catchy.

Ah, you are special! and I do do enjoy running through sprinklers but not with my phaser. Thanks for listening!

Thanks! I can confirm no phasers were sprinkled in this track, but that sounds more like a technique that CosmicCairns would use smile

Ooooh, this is lovely! It's got that great upbeat quality reminiscent of Depeche Mode but all your own, the excellent bass delay and phased noise passes go hand in hand big_smile Favorited!
