Ember & Ash

By Tone Matrix on April 22, 2018 11:56 pm

I think this might be my first track using all three of my synths and iPad.  I dusted off the Access Virus C for the main soft pad and used the Bass Station for duh, bass...  Strings, Piano & EP from the RD-700GX.  The main beat was exported from Elastic Drums on the iPad then mangled a bit in Ableton.  I wish I was a bit better versed in using Elastic Drums so I could use all the fx chops.  It at least helped inspire the mellow sorta off beat.  Another track for the insomniacs and headache-laced bouts.  Thanks for listening smile

This has a nice relaxing vibe to it and I like the little fire sound effects that run throughout.

Superb chillwave. Like those occasional cracks.

Also, the first image I've seen of impastoed burning charcoal ::)

This is lovely. I'm really into this song, and kinda got mad when I'd switched back to my work and after a couple minutes the song ended. Had to come back and start it over and leave this comment. Well done!

Very relaxing/soothing pads, I forgot about elastic drums, have to go back and revisit that one ( I remember it would never auto save, like most other apps and then you lose whatever you were working on)

Yep, that's one relaxing song.

The chord progression is very nice in particular.

Great subtle progression to this.

Nicely subdued piece and good use of the various platforms.  I'll have to fire up my Virus for a track this year!

Very peaceful and introspective tune. Sounds quite melancholic yet very very soothing

Another week, another stellar tune.

ugh, so great this one!
Love the sound of those drums!

So nice! Simple elements, everything is sounding great and working well together. I especially love the sound of that soft pad. I can never get my pads sounding right so I'm very jelly.

You blend all of the musical elements so masterfully, very impressive.
