The first three demonstrate the evolution of the three core sounds as described in the text; an arpeggiated lead, evolving pad and rhythmic bass. The final example provides a short cue demonstrating the three sounds in a musical context.

This audio example provides a short cue demonstrating the three sounds above in a musical con-text. The three core sounds dominate the cue. The only additional sounds added are some riser and impact/downer style sound design elements. These were all generated using further instances of Retrologue; no other sound sources were used within the cue.
