Everything about this track is experimental in nature. I'll briefly try to touch on everything and explain why I chose to make it the way I did. Also, the only external plugins I used are Serum and some free vst effects.

For the drums, I offset the high-hat by one 16th note so that they would hit just barely after the offbeat, creating an uneven rhythm that sounded like the drums were limping.

For the main lead, I didn't want to make the melody too complicated, otherwise I think it would overshadow everything else going on and take away from the serene mood of the intro. The synth itself is made from Serum's built-in whitenoise channel with a couple saturation effects on it to get the tonality.

For the main "call" bass, I made a growl in serum using the Modern Talking wavetable from NI Massive, then put a bitcrusher on it and I kinda like it.

For the main "response" bass, I don't remember what wavetables I used, but I just wanted some kind of LFO-modulated sound so that I could control how fast the drop is.

Also the gnome just for good measure.

Anyway, hope you guys like this, and maybe I'll find the inspiration to finish this someday.

really cool, really unique. Just wish there were more midbass tones in there cause im getting alot of highs and sub, but not much midlows. It would really fill out the sound.
