Which is nice... :mrgreen:

I would love to join in, but this really isn't the time for me. :cry:

That said, I will be doing a one 'synth' (hint - it only has six knobs!) live performance later this year, so I may come back with a recording of that performance at some point.

I'd encourage anyone to give it a go - these things are very good for the creativity!

Having lots of fun trying this and pleased with results so far - but its a very slow process :)

Hopefully I'll be finished by the end of the month :blush:

Couldn't agree more!
It's really forced me out of my comfort zone and I've no idea what I'm actually creating, where it's going or whether it will turn into anything, but I've found it really good fun so far :thumbup:

Ok, I'm in on this. It sounds like a bag of old nails, well, actually that might sound better, but it should give you all a nice low bar to walk over. :)

Ignore the post count, I have no idea what I'm doing...

Don't do yourself down Drew. I'm in a strange sort of purgatory at the moment - I've nicked a particular synth to use and, whilst it's brilliant at certain things, it's limitations are driving me crackers! So mine may not be too spectacular either...

I'd like to do this, specially as ai recently got a new synth and it's a good way of getting into the depths or at least starting to. Can I check the deadline - I think I saw end of this month?

More than happy to help with laying beats down as I don't have a synth here that can do a whole song. My friends keep stealing my synths and pretending ownership of them.

(bump)

Just a nudge to anyone who is still working on a track that tomorrow is the nominal deadline for this. If you're close but can't make tomorrow then let me know and we can extend out a little if that helps.

Nearly done...

Just done a quick rough mix - Will have to re-record my Kick as it has a the most evil sub bass rumble.

Not sure, if I'm cruel enought to attempt a vocal - will see how brave i'm feeling later !

Really sorry I'm not gonna make this, was hoping to put something together but I mis-planned, kids have holiday these two days (I'm a Brit in Prague). I'll try and sneak something in wednesday:) Flagrant disregard for the rules but hey I've got to try.
