Trivial Touch primarily uses Vanguard the dance and EDM virtual synth, I also used Serum (which is my new VST) and an older Virtual synth call Poizone. The drums were sequenced using battery using samples which were rerecorded back into my computer from my Akai S4000, The sequences and arpeggios like always were programmed by hand. The bass was recorded to my computer from my Yamaha A3000, which is an amazing bit of kit (mainly use it for heavy processing)

The mains arpeggio sound was sampled from Synclavier V, by Arturia.

The mixdown was then passed through Ozone to give it more punch, a multi band compressor and a light touch of waves IR-1 to give it a bit more depth.

I sequenced this track in about half an hour and took me about an hour to process and record all the samples, I mainly used the A3000 and played in some synth sounds using my Tyros keyboard. The SFX came from serum and was processed using a Behringer virtualizer and recorded back to the A3000. I will be mastering this at a later date with wavelab, but in the meantime please enjoy this sample of my EDM/Trance work.

Back to the drums, the drums were sampled from a college drum kit and my Yamaha electronic drum kit.

You sir, have my respect. I too enjoy drum pads and the like, though I have never produced a song through anything but FL. I completely love it dude. I'm younger than you man, but I love the older times. This is real trance too. Respect.
