Cool arrangements! Nice sounds and good quality too! I want more :D

What gear did you use?

your wish is my command, hehe,glad you like it! A little bit of italo&techno: ... xtract.mp3
This is an extract from a live set i did with a friend of mine(excuse some weird transitions, it was our first time :lol: )

regarding the gear-although i have some outboard synths(and of course i want some more of that analog goodness :mrgreen: ), these songs were made entirely on software(except for the first track in this mp3, where i used a juno)-mainly arturia synths(minimoog, cs and jupiter)...

Cheers :wave:

I think you (and your friend) have a nice grasp of how to make "it" sound polished. Nice, tight, compositions. The only thing I would say is you sound a little reserved, sort of always staying in musically and aesthetically safe zones. You clearly have some skills, why not try and take it a little farther out?

Interesting observation :) I must say I agree with you-one reason for this i think is the fact, that I love these "safe" melodies and polished sound :lol: (though i would sometimes like to achieve sound similar to yours, that has a little more bite). Other strong reason is probably my lazyness and bad keyboard skills, hehe...when i work with softsynths, i rarely assign parameters to my midi controller to bring a little more life and movement to the sounds, though i have recently started assigning multiple parameters to one knob-instant madness!
I guess i should use my ms2000 more often, its hands-on modulation matrix and step sequencer invite me into the wild&unknown territories...the incoming evolver will also help i think :) i was just about to ask if you also use it yourself, because your tracks have such an "evolving" tone, when i saw the track PEK_thing :wink:

I rarely program in controller data or patch changes. Usually if a sound evolves it's due to some effects, live parameter/controller manipulation during performance (and I mean parameter knobs plus controllers like AT, mod wheels, etc), or it's just the way the patch is programmed. But the real thing is composition and the way notes interact. I, too, am too lazy to pre-plan a lot of movement and stuff and rely on playing and composition for whatever I achieve.
