  1. Yeah I get that, if you want to do the classic "acid" sound than you gotta have a 303 (or clone). But I'm not looking to do that, and I think for psy/goa there are so many other possibilities that a 303 isn't crucial unless, like antic said, you really want that specific style of sequencing with the accents and slides (which is indeed cool, but hardly essential). I guess I'm just on the fence as to whether I NEED that. Also, the future retro seems really big in comparison to the usual 303 clones, only a point because I don't have a lot of free surface area in the studio at the moment
  2. Any good melodic forest style tracks out there? I like forest but it gets boring for me when its like a 2hr set with no melodies.
  3. Hey guys, got an opportunity to get a future-retro revolution but wonder if it's worth it? I've been looking at getting some kind of 303 clone for a while but I'm worried about it being too limited overall - as in, it can do "that 303 sound" and nothing else. Like, to be honest it feels like I barely even hear people using the typical 303 sound in goa/psy anymore and I've got plenty of other synths with a lot more features. Just wondering what you guys think about 303 clones and if they're still relevant.

    Next Cellestial Intelligence Album?

    Cannot wait for a new album!! I think they are my favorite Goa producers right now. And yeah, they've thankfully had a bunch of tracks on comps from 2015 until now, check out the Global Sect compilations for some excellent Celestial Intelligence songs (and many others)

    Va - Terraformer

    I feel the same about his Crystal Worlds track! (that's another absolute banger of a comp from Global Sect)

    Va - Terraformer

    This comp is so goddamn good; Global Sect always deliver in terms of track selection and presentation (love their artwork...I also got one of the UV banners which is fucking beautiful). My favorite tracks here are Celestial Intelligence, Alienapia (Night Train), Psy-H (all of them), Mindsphere, Artifact303 (Contact), Median Project (Mad Space), Omnivox, and the downtempo Liquid Flow and Slow Reflections tracks are amaaaazing. It took me a while to get into it because of the sheer size, but once I did I had it on repeat for weeks. There is seriously only like 1 bad track, a few mediocre ones, and the vast majority are really good.

    What's some good Full On

    Lol there are too many subgenres. I thought that Dacru stuff was prog? Tropical Bleyage is cool though, I have 2 of their albums.

    What's some good Full On

    Hey guys, looking for some good Full On tracks/producers, I don't know much of that stuff. Looking for good production, good melodies if possible, and most importantly interesting/psychedelic sound design. For example, I really like Psilocybian.
  10. Have you heard Airi - "Conscious Species" on Zenon, it came out last year? It's really good; dark and atmospheric but still has a lot of "psy" elements. The new Kromagon is pretty cool as well, but it gets a little too techno-ish for me.

    New MWNN album?

    Goddamn, been waiting for a new MWNN for so long!!!! It will probably be mostly generic bullshit, but hopefully some of his classic style in there.

    Logic Bomb

    I love Bitter Hitter. The production on that album (The Grid) is absolutely phenomenal, soooo spacious. Some of the old stuff like Shadow of the Beast is really good too. I have the Sonic Algebra album as well but nothing on there really stood out to me.

    What exactly is a "goa" bassline

    Hehe this is part of the problem, you can't really hear/make out the bass in a lot of goa songs! But here are a couple that I really like: Alienapia does some great hard basslines And I like Psy-H for basslines too, you can actually hear it clearly in the beginning. This one seems fairly close to the typical psy bass but mainly the low end only without the emphasis on mid/high tones, leaving room for the synths.
  15. So first of all, I totally under the "psy" bass which is used in every single prog/Dacru/etc track ever made. I can make that with no problems, but it doesn't really fit with "goa" type songs. This type of bassline is pretty easy to grasp because it's almost always one of the main focuses of the song so it's easy to hear the tone/notes. However, the thing I am struggling with is that in Goa the focus is on the layers of synths/melodies and the bassline is usually kind of buried and hard to make out. So what exactly makes something a "Goa" bassline and how do you create it? Also feel free to post any examples of particularly "goa" style basslines.
