I'm especially impressed by the drums sounds everyone coaxed out of their synths. I think the imposed limitations of the comp brought out some creative approaches to the tracks. We have 4 more days of voting!

I would have liked to enter this contest, but my newest analog is an MG-1. Hopefully that will change soon.

But I'm seriously impressed with everything on here. Picking the best came down to which appealed to my particular taste, but in terms of timbres, everyone did an amazing job with the limitations imposed. Kudos to everyone who participated.
