4am: themes for synthesized strings

Published on Jan 18, 2020 NONsynth

"I've uploaded this as a demo to the album I'm working on (see video title).

Waking up at 4am has been super productive, and since early January I've been using the time to explore and develop a piano patch in Continua (new softsynth from Audio Damage). It has morphed from a kind of electric piano to more of a guitar tone, and I realize now that it's starting to approximate the 8-string tone I had a few years back.

I've been playing Continua with the Novation Launchpad X, and it's been a really nice way to get back to somewhat familiar ground, given the guitar-like layout of the default notes mode. It's as familiar as it is foreign, and I've been mirroring that middle ground in the mood of these songs.

Hope those listening enjoy, and please leave a comment if you have any suggestions or criticism! Keep in mind this is an early draft and I've yet to finalize either the notes or the sound design."
