  1. Hmm.. very interesting.. maybe I should consider releasing some singles on vinyl. I'm a small upcoming artist but it might be a nice way to break the ice.
  2. Thanks for listening and sharing
  3. EDIT; fixed linked Looking for some feedback on my new project, you can listens here: Thank you very much for all comments and support
  4. Oh sweet, will do What I noticed about the virus over time was it does have a bit of a ''dark'' sound as some people say. Not sure about the TI because I never owned one. I still have my Virus A, the only hardware I have left now. Was thinking of selling it for a ti but not sure really. I think the Virus C was one of my favourites, it also just looks really cool haha... I also had an Indigo B for a while but it was too big and clunky (although beautiful) and I sold it too. The snow looks cool, but I want a synth with more knobs I guess as I probably wouln't even use the TI software.
  5. But there are some sounds the virus makes that I didn't see other synths ever do the same way I sold my virus C on the weekend and kind of regret it now haha
  6. Actually I'm not a huge Abelton user and just been learning a bit more over the last 2 years or so. Think I prefer Cubase, especially for arrangements. Virus are very cool synths but I am starting to realize that probably most of the things I can do in my DAW.
  7. Hey loops! Had some time off and just back to things today I guess it is a bit darker I actually did use the virus for the kind of stabby fm plucks the main FM riff was made using a tweaked FM patch from Trip Machines, the Ableton rack from Futurephonic. Essentially I would believe you can get the same things from native Ableton stuff. Some great little things in those patches regardless , I can recommend them. Btw mate do you use any hardware synths?
  8. Do Alex Jones vocals count as politics? If you can check out this project I'm working on Truth be told, I did wonder if someone would somehow interpret the vocals in the wrong way, you never know these days. Message is NOT intended to be political, in case I need to mention that.. Are we only talking psytrance? I have a great album in mind but it's hip hop.
  9. Haha thanks man! My previous work was always influenced by the 2000-2008 era, more or less. Lately, with my new tracks, such as Arranged Brains [WIP] I am going for a guess what would be called a more 'modern' style? At least that is my aim. Getting more into the FM synth stuff. Mechanical Human is dope btw
  10. Hahaha small world, already following you Awesome music mate
  11. Thanks Loop! The bass is still running from the VST Sylenth. Although I think the main thing I use on all my bass, whether its Serum, Sylenth or whatever, is Waves Tans X. I swear by this plugin and I put it on 100% of bass tracks and it always, always sounds better. Of course the usual, get your filter envelopes sounding kinda snappy but I think you got that. Also I really like Fabfilter Saturn, add like 3-4 bands and play around with it. Qaudrafuzz is also pretty cool. I do intend to bounce the bass to a wave file for when I make the final mix. Also think it could have a few more touches etc and make it a bit longer. When I'm done I'll post it. Oh PRO TIP I saw recently: a lot of the groove and feel of the bass has to do with the first bass note. Make a separate track just for that first bass note so you can easily control it whenever you want.
  12. Hey buddy - see you are from Cape Town. I'm from Plettenberg Bay and lived in CT many years ago. Awesome psytrance scene <3 PS smart machines is cool - reminds me of something like Juvenile - A Machine's Dream album.
  13. I just called Dimitri to help me with my acid lines.
  14. Nice track, didn't hear this one before but was listening to Silicon sound back in the day Not my virus in that picture, but I have the same one so sort of haha.
  15. Hey Padmapani thanks man! Yeah I need to also get more tracks to the complete status, finishing tracks is such a b**ch haha. I would like to have also 5-6 solid complete tracks. I had a talk with a friend a couple weeks back, basically I was saying many of the tracks I like actually could be a bit shorter. Some of the full-on morning tracks build up, bring the kind of cheesy part in, do some kind of drop and bring it in again and again. Many tracks I just listen to certain parts, and the other parts seem drawn out a little at times. Of course some artists keep an entire 7-8 mins interesting but often with drawn out breaks and intro's. If you can make 5-6 minute tracks, cram all the power in that time and don't let it draw out, that's kind of my plan. I saw infected mushroom saying it on youtube video also a while back, some newer genre's and producers have shorter tracks and so what lol. BTW see you are from Austria. I was in Vienna not too long ago for a trance party. Really loved it.
  16. Haha just keep making what you like I guess and eventually the style will come back to what you're doing? When I listen to that atomic pulse track I guess some people might think after the first min or two like oh this is soo slow and not much is going on. Nowadays the full on has to sound powerful and grab your attention really quickly, almost sounding full on from the start of the track. Maybe it's a good thing, can't get mad at evolution I guess lol
  17. Awesome - when they had the sale I did the upgrade from Elements to Artist Maybe one day I'll go pro. I really like the idea of dual monitoring of audio channels in Pro...
  18. Hello guys, I finished a track recently, posted here already. However, my environment is far from ideal for mixing. I use my monitors and headphones to reach some kind of agreement but I'm pretty sure it's impossible to get it nailed in this setup. Anyhow, when I uploaded my track to soundcloud I decided to give a go at their ''mastering'' on the track. The first thing I noted was that the volume was quite reduced on the track after applying this mastering. I tried to compare A/B with my mix from Cubase and sorta thought the soundcloud mastering seems to have added more control on the mix, but I'm not sure. Now listening to my mix at lower volumes it seems better -maybe because it's louder than the soundcloud master and thus better. But I'm not sure. The issues with my mix seem to come when I crank a bit more - just seems a bit more volatile than the soundcloud mix. But then I thought to myself well I'm mixing in my living room / kitchen and have no idea what's really going on'. If anyone with a studio that's been treated studio can compare the two mixes and tell me which they think sounds better? Of course bear in mind the difference in volume and try adjust it. I'm curios what you think sounds better. This soundcloud mastering is a gimmick? My mix: https://soundcloud.com/kick-flip-official/kick-flip-fliping-out_mix2 Soundcloud mastered mix: Cheers fellas
