check out those sweet fundamentals, mad respect bruh
jk, they aren't really pure sines because those are boring as shit and really difficult to make stand out in a mix (it's like 1/16 square and also has some tube and crush distortion for sum a da fuzzinezz (probably some other stuff too, idr))
if you've listened to some of my other music, you might know that I love arpeggiating vibraphone-ish isntruments, and using a sine pluck is pretty close to that smooth low-pass-ish goodness that I like (I like it even more than suffixing words with -ish)
trying to add appropriate complementary sounds is where it gets somewhat difficult, though
I layered a bunch of nexus saws to use in the upper frequency range (and yes, of course they have porta, why would I ever NOT use porta?), but the resulting concoction still clashes somewhat with all the smoother stuff going on
maybe there is too much Glitch involved
still, it makes a melodic lead, so what do you want, an apology? back off, son
I've entertained the idea of using a sine bass, as well, but sine is just so flat, I ended up using one of the nexus trance basses, which I like
overall, I'm still pretty happy with the way everything layers, the sines are always clearly audible, which was the intention
oh yeah, I always have trouble gauging how much melodic repetitiveness is acceptable, so I've been abusing techniques such as looping a 4 bar phrase an octave higher and other such vile things, feedback regarding this compositional degradation is very welcome
the ending includes a totally random modulation that makes you think there's more development coming, but leaves you with bitter disappointment as the song fades out, don't you just love it?
writing these descriptions makes me feel really ADHD, so I'll just wrap up here
good luck on your quiz!~
