Absolutely love it. Beautiful chords and melody. Great drums. And mix.

Do you perform out? Kind of shit I'd love watching/hearing in a pub around 9pm Fri evening, on around the 3rd drink!

Keep em coming

Thanks guys!

I actually never play out, I know... Kinda lame, but I guess I prefer the composition side, although, funny enough, I bought these synths for playing live. I haven't really found a low key place to play love at. I used to play guitar live, was in bands, but never ended up finding people I connected musically with. I remember trying to get together with one person through Craigslist, to start a electronic duo. I didn't think he was very good, but I remember after our first synth meeting that he posted a new Craigslist ad asking for a REAL musician to play with...

I should probably just do stuff solo, but most of what you're seeing is fairly polished, multiple takes... I doubt my live show would be awesome. :/

Very good. Echoes of BOC, but not derivative. All done with the EMX? Any post-production?

Thanks rob_lee and clubbedtodeath :)

This was all done using the EMX (as you can see), but there was post-production. Mostly I'm just trying to get the volume up without causing it to peak/distort (The main outputs always distort though, you can hear it through most of my songs using the EMX, not sure how to fix that, too many sounds going through the outputs, I think). I used an EQ to remove some of the lowest frequencies and some limiting and compression. I typically don't post what post-production I do, but mainly because I think people laugh at my inept skills at mastering/mixing, or whatever it would be called (I'd be sure to get: why the hell did you do that? type of comments).

Thanks again!
