No prophecy.. .

By theGuen on July 29, 2018 5:55 pm

I started this while playing around with some FL Synths.
This is one of those tracks which developed some own life while not watching wink
The voices are made with the google text to speech wavenet thing.
There also are snippets from some old news about the first time a computer was used to make a forecast about the outcome  of the election. Thats where the title comes from

Hope you enjoy...

Have a great week!

The spoken word samples work really well with the music.  It does sound like some kind of radio transmission complete with the high pitched beeps.  Very nice.

Vocals work very well in counterpoint to the backing. One of this week's highlights; this goes on my playlist.

Thanks man! There is also some station search sample from an oldtime radio layered under the track. I guess nowadays less people know this sound...  wink

Ha cool... my wife said that the drums are to hard for that softer synth... Yeah try that TTS its fun... There is a demo on the Site where you can insert text... you have to sample that from your audio out.

Love the TTS vocals... great lyrics. Sounds like the computer apocalypse set to a chill euro lounge track. The variety of warning messages vocalized by the dispassionate robot is awesome. Really fun!

I feel like I'm being warned about something big that is coming ... and it's a big heady beat! Nice one. Great work all around, love the vocals and samples. It's the best when tracks take on a life of their own!

Oh yais!  The bassline had me headnoddin immediately.  But the second time the bass comes back with the synth pad and bleeps it takes on a sinister feel.  Wish I had your beat instincts.  Those drums keep me moving!  Nice!

Now I NEED to check that Google site... I loved the radio feel to it smile
