I'm back, until things get horribly busy again. Maybe that won't happen. We'll see.

This is certainly intriguing, especially the irregular stop-starts and the overall ambiance. Details, please?

Thanks. It's an FM synth built in Max, with the train~ object providing variable pulses that switch the sound on/off and have their own linear ramps.

I'm glad I've inspired something. Now I really should stop neglecting WeeklyBeats...
