On Hold: Roland JUNO-6, JX-3P, Sequential OB-6, Dr. A Delay and Reverb

"Your call is important to us. Please stay on the line and someone will be with you shortly.

What happens when you press the hold button on a JUNO-6 and play a chord, then do the same on a JX-3P, then play some wiry, stringy pad thingy on an OB-6, with a wash of delay and reverb from an Audiothingies Dr. A? Perhaps you'll get a piece of ambient music that's long enough to not loop even once before your call is answered by a real person. But probably not.

Next time you're on hold, imagine that you're listening to beautiful synths instead of a 10-second monotonous loop.

Jokes and sarcasm aside, I just realized this track is somewhat similar to another ambient pad track I did a long time ago. Only that was done on an iPad with a $5 synth app, recorded with a $5 multi-tracking app, and probably "mastered" in Audacity (free open-source). I remember using a total cheap POS MIDI controller to play it, but it worked and the result was a decent piece of recorded music. That was before I knew squat about synths, other than the cutoff knob did interesting things. Anyway, here's that if you're interested:"
