I've not even started, but I'm confident I can rustle up something for Sunday.

I didn't think I was going to make the deadline either. Last time work got in the way a bit but I probably had the time realistically - it was probably more just my usual lack of inspiration.

I really find it difficult to develop and finish any musical ideas I have. Constantly writing what effectively turns out to be four bar loops :headbang:

This time I've made it! Entry sent! :D :D :D

I'm excited to hear what everyone comes up with :bouncy: :bouncy: :bouncy:

I've been fighting a USB floppy emulator all evening and it's beaten me :(

I'll send a track in tomorrow evening (Sunday) :)

I had a weird time in Surrey once, but that was a drummer's fault.

Muhahaha... I just got it working. Well, that only took about 4 hours!

I now have access to some special data I can use to complete my preferred submission by tomorrow.

Hurrah!

I'm glad I got mine in early! I've had no time since.

My synth may be a little obscure, but by no means unknown. really only reverb, a little compression on the main bits. Maybe a little overboard on the delays for rhythm. Not sure anyone will guess it. Is there wagering allowed?

Friendly wagering only I think.

If you want to go for cash, then I can't really object. But it's worth noting that I am easily bribable ... it could get costly.... ;)

Well yes, not a “bribe” :shh: ...that envelope of fivers stuffed under your mousepad is for the “poor orphans” fund. No due consideration is “expected”.

Nice one! :-)

Working on the final automation here now - part of my challenge is that this is the first time I've ever used Mixbus! :tongue:

And ... it's in. A bit last minute, despite a very early start weeks ago but ended up doing everything today, because of reasons.

And if anyone wants to buy the synth I did it on, it's not for sale :tongue:

Just send Dave a link to my file - had a lot of fun tracking today ! :)

Mixing was tricky - I may have made some very unwise decisions :blush:

I'm gradually learning to accept that a mix is never 'finished' or 'right' - just 'good' and 'on time'...

:D

Unless we have any more later tonight, I think we have the entries. Wow! Fourteen this time. And a nice mix of technologies as well. In the morning, I'll compile and publish the playlist for this and you can all sit back and enjoy some excellent choonage! But for now, drink tea / wine / whatever, hug you loved ones and relax knowing that it's a case of 'job well done'.
