This is another all hardware jam, LIVE. I used a Korg Electribe EMX-1, which was then connected to the Analog Filter of my Alesis Andromeda A6, The Roland JP8000 was then played live over the track as well. Enjoy

Dem JP8000 Supersaw sounds. They sound so beautiful, I really want a hardware version now!
The track sounds pretty damn awesome, I love the Psytrance feeling that this track gives off, it's incredible and I can really hear the hardware generated sounds sounding so damn awesome!

Only thing is that the track does sound like it has alot of static with it which is a shame, otherwise I would bump it up to 5 stars.

Very nice track overall, I hope you can do a remaster of this one day and reduce the static noise, probably one of my Favorite trance tracks on Newgrounds right now!

You did this with REAL hardware!? Color me astonished!

As much as I love to watch hardware jams and have contemplated getting an Electribe MX/SX. I just don't have the time or the space to put all that hardware. Anyways, this definitely sounds something that Goa Gil/The Nommos, Braincell, and Blue Forest/Galactic Mantra would make.

Sound Design: It isn't easy programming all those instruments to get something that's salient, especially with actual hardware. Your lead, bass, and pad have that otherworldly-but-not-Psytrance feel to it, which is good. I have to say that you have done well in this department although I heard static in the background. Of course, I'm willing to bet that you have gotten a better microphone over the years, so I won't be harsh. You have definitely got the Goa Trance sound down perfectly.
Composition: As said before, this definitely feels like something that was made by either Goa Gil/The Nommos, Braincell, or Blue Forest/Galactic Mantra. For a live jam, you did well given your limited, but powerful hardware. As much as I like LMMS and whatnot, there's just something about a hardware jam that is just exhilarating.
Other: Aside from the static, the only things that I have to complain about are the "dead zones" in the first three and last twelve seconds of this song. Those should have been edited out when you had the opportunity.

What I like:
-Real Hardware used
-Great sound
-Excellent composition
-Reasonable filesize

What I didn't like:
-Static in the recording
-There were silence in the first three and last twelve seconds of the song.

Overall: Here's a ten from me and I may have to look forward to future releases from you.
