I personally think that Martin had these names on file for years and was just waiting for the right time to use them ....

:D

So, any initial thoughts as to who may have written what? Anything jump out?

Would a list of who submitted help?

Without knowing who'd entered I'd guess that Ben Asaro is likely to have done track No. 2 as it sounds very Chiptune like. It's something Martin Walker could also have done, but he is normally far more sophisticated in his output these days.

Why thank you kind sir - always happy to oblige! :thumbup:

To be honest, I was amazed just how many references popped into my head as I listened to these tracks, yet just how varied they were :clap:

Just listened through - what variety - I set myself the challenge to see if I could easily determine the softsynths from the analogues - (they say you can do that easily on GS) - well I couldn't! :headbang:

The variation is great - I love some of the distorted sounds next to the more jarre- like pads and strings - I'm going to listen again and see if I can nail the synths... :bouncy:

Well done Dave - big slap on the back is well in order!

Just finishing listening at work, couldn't wait fit this evening! Some good stuff, a couple that I really wanted to go on for longer. I guess I'll have to attempt some sort of review later.

How does the voting work?

Ooh, that's got me guessing now Rich ;)

However, I could just say that whatever inspired your track came through loudly and clearly :clap:

I can at least guess what track is mine without listening, based on Martin's descriptive titles.

Will have a listen to these when I can.

Hooray - I've obviously discovered a latent talent! :thumbup:

(I'd have preferred a latent superpower, but hey, who's complaining? ;) )

Oh bravo!

I certainly have a couple of favourites, and look forward to finding out what the synths are.
