Ideation

First bit of music on the PC I put together this week! Been a real battle getting everything up and running, and I'm honestly missing OSX a whole lot, but daaamn I can just pile on the CPU hungry plugins now, and I guess this slightly odd track is the result of that, and some fairly sizable sleep debt. big_smile

Got some Daft Punk/Tron vibes from that initial synth intro and how it opens up.  The cool beat takes it in a different direction.  It has a nice shuffling groove to it.  Nice breakdown of the main synth for the outro too.  Well done!

Thanks so much for listening, and for your encouraging words!

Awesome man, this is cool as hell.  Absolutely love the drum groove on this and those triplet arps.  The outro is wild too.

Just upgraded to a new macbook so I can definitely relate to how nice it is to have the CPU power to run huge projects now.  I couldnt make the leap to windows, but I'm sure you were able to build a much more powerful machine for a lot less $$ than what I got.  Looking forward to hearing what else you're able to make on that thing.

Wow, this is beautiful how it develops and opens up.
