Synth Revolution (80s style)

Author Comments

Back into 80s-style music production. Here's another of my synthpop/italo disco. Of course it has to have some synths and loud drum beats in it. This one has specifically brass, moog, and other instruments/presets/sound fx. The kick and the 80s snare sound is not from FL Studio, neither are the toms or the claps.

It's not a great synthpop/italo disco song, but I tried to make it sound as 80s as possible and sound big with its synths. This is inspired by the artists like Dyva, Mike Mareen and Clay Pedrini. Don't ask me how I know them, lol...

Mission accomplished!

This oozes italo disco, mission accomplished! It has that early 80s vibe to it (when big poly synthesizer and drum machines were at their most popular). Some synths are a little unauthentic (I spy some Yamaha FM Synthesizers in there) and the mastering could use a little touch up (some sounds over power the song, never a good thing). Some sounds are also clearly presets, try and program your own sounds because the presets sound very cliché and cheesy.

It's a great attempt at italo disco with a dark twist and I enjoyed it :)

If you ever want some tips in creating italo/space synth music just give me a bell. I'll point you in the direction of some authentic instruments to sink your teeth into.

Wow, thanks for the review, Ben Anderson =D. I actually like making italo disco/synthpop music as well as listening to it. You're right- the presets sound kinda cheesy, and some sounds overpower the song. I use the presets, mostly Sytrus and 3xOsc, a lot, and I'm not that good at programing my own sounds.

Thanks once again.
