winter warmer, esq-1 euphoric pad work!!!

Post by jeeroj » Tue Oct 05, 2010 5:34 pm

just popped a new tune up on my soundcloud.

it's my first attempt at using the esq-1 and its sequencer. jomox mbase01 on the kick, 606 on beats and I was feeling a bit saucy so put a drum loop in there too.

as ever, a liberal splash of x0xb0x:D

so turn on your lasers and reach for the sky!

cheers, i think it's a preset on the ESQ-1, one of the few good ones. :)

I've just started trying to make my own patches too. I'm still pretty lost when it comes to knowing what I'm changing and how it will affect the sound but by actually getting involved i'm slowly learning.

nice atmosphere for sure :) maybe the pads could drop out just when the beat starts and then come back in later for that full-on euphoria feel :)

love the bass

I love this track. Nice one!
It's the best use of the 303/x0xb0x sound i've heard on this forum.
The ESQ-1 sounds amazing too.
