Here’s a couple I’ve done over the weekend. Both songs are recorded line into an iMac line in from the synth outputs Into Renoise. Masters are polished a bit in Studio One.

Saturday tune is the DSI MEK. I used the Elektron Digitone to sequence notes over midi for some parts, others are just individual samples.

Today I used the Novation UltraNova to make this. Same line in set up again using Renoise and S1 but no need for the Digitone today.

I like this. Novation version especially, but I'm wondering if you'd have been better off either posting in 'Self-Promotion" as this challenge is over.

Funnily enough

Made me smile : as a fan of Sparks, Yello this is triffic take on summer of 69.

More please.

For all the electronic bands from blighty note how serious they all are.
Where's the famed "british sense of humour" in their music ?

It took a Swiss duo and American duo to inject much humour into electronic music.
Although Art Of Noise had their humourous moments.

We sure could do with more mirth in electronic music.

So yes more please RG much more.

:::::

(Cause every native knows day to day interactions in blighty are generally miserable:
hardly any sense of humour from people hardly any light heartedness
just a put on mateyness.

That's why need all these brill sitcoms brill comics just to uplift people make people laugh .
Also light hearted music much needed).

You are a very kind person.

I had thought of it as being a one off effort from a random whimsical thought, but another possible mock-teutonic reworking occurred to me this afternoon. ;)

I've never liked a solo violin, you need at least five for a proper fire.
