Stuck In The Past

By Tone Matrix on May 13, 2018 7:58 pm

While working on this track in the final hours I learned what a 'text-door neighbor' is (Texting the next digit off from your phone number). Unfortunately that same number that decided to randomly message me actually used to be my ex's number.   I think you can hear me slumping over the keyboard as I really wanted nothing to do with this track or today.  The good news is WeeklyBeats has given me new ways to remember these 'moments'.    Also the Access Virus synth decided it didn't want to power on this week.  So that is absent this week.  Yay! Maybe next week it will be in the mood!  Thanks for listening to me moan and groan.  tongue

Quite soft stuff here... really melow. No moan and groan here, to my ears. Just beautiful music

Just remember you can always ride the sound waves to the future, merely keeping them as an echo to the past.

This is really beautiful and liked when the beat kicked in along with the melody line.  Definitely no signs of frustration to me.

These Pads are very beautyfull. Your drums are are quite different this time more dry and with this little reverses  Really great Job on the mix!!!
That melody synth is awesome first when it sounds more guitare like... what is it?

Nice chillout, thanks! The pads sound really great, and the solo part as well.

Thanks smile  the drums were a simple chill loop I found and since I'm usually very lazy with my drum beats, I decided to reverse a few of the hits to try and break up the monotony. The more guitar-like synth might just be the Electric Piano in the higher register?  The pads were from the Virus C and the EP from the Roland RD700GX.

Thanks, i'm no photoshop expert unfortunately smile  I basically google search based on the subject/title or take a random scenic pic I've taken and throw it into various iPhone apps like Fragment, Shift, Glaze, Circular or Prisma.  If it's not my own image I try to destroy it enough that you can't tell tongue This particular one was just simple pic of outside my house and thrown into Circular (great at making tiny planet pics) and then Glaze (good for giving it that painted look) smile  Thanks again for listening!
