Synthstrom Deluge - Panic - A synth darkwave jam inspired by Crystal Castles

Payton Carter

"Here's a synthpop/darkwave track on the Deluge, inspired by Crystal Castles. There are a couple of string presets toward the end of the factory patches that totally evoke Gary Numan and The Cure. I started messing around with one of those patches, and that's where this track came from.

I'm starting to warm up to the Deluge! After about a week, I'm definitely more comfortable performing in the song view. Keeping track of clips is still a little confusing, but it's easier with practice. I decided to perform this track live, instead of writing everything out in the arranger view. That definitely feels like a more organic way of writing, which I think is good for me. I'm the kind of guy that can spend an hour trying to get the automation on a filter sweep just write, so I like how performing live forces you to make decisions in real time, which can reduce the "choice paralysis" I can get when arranging a composition."
