For some reason, I struggled a lot with this one. Don’t even know if it can be considered a finished product.  Nonetheless, here it is for the world’s appraisal and judgment : D

Have fun and please comment.  I learn a lot from the comments.

Definitely a good deal of funk.

I get the feeling some parts have a bit of an awkward panning going on. Try filling the void in the other ear.

I noticed that too but ran out of time and didn't do the proper stereo analysis.  Thanks for noting.

Very mid nineties experimental funk. Cool breaks. The "brassy" bass is a little bit too loud to my taste, but it's a fun tune, anyway. Funky

I have a question: does the Korg Prophecy stands the test of time? I remember it seemed a little limited back then, being monophonic in the late nineties? is it some sort of "bass station" made by Korg?

I am glad you found it fun!

About the Korg Prohecy, I don’t think it was made to be a “bass station” but it ended up becoming something like that.  My music is very 90’s, 2000’s sounding so I don’t mind it not standing the test of time. However, truth be told, I hardly use its synthesizing power nowadays.  Most of my stuff is done with free VSTs.
