"Into the Breach is my favorite game of 2018, with a killer soundtrack by Ben Prunty. While playing it I kept thinking... what would this music sound like on synths and drum machines?

I wanted these covers to have a distinct feel that is different from the original music. So where the game's soundtrack mostly uses string instruments and minimal percussion, I hooked up 6 synthesizers, 2 drum machines, and a sampler. For the arrangement, I went more aggressive with prominent drums and a healthy amount of distortion.

Each song was recorded in two parts: one using the instruments on the desk and one using the instruments on the stool. These were recorded multitracked and then combined in REAPER. Here's the specific gear I used:
Roland D-05
Roland TR-8
Korg Monologue
Korg Minilogue
Korg Volca Drum
Korg Volca Modular
Korg Volca Keys
Korg Volca Bass
Korg Volca Sample
Korg Volca Mix
Zoom MS70-CDR
Soundcraft Signature 12MTK"
