previously when I said "winter" I of course meant "sequencer". Thats on the list ;)

No12 : The imagery I got from that was ninja burglers creeping around doing their crime caper at night. Well done Mark :thumbup:

If it helps to narrow things down, the first and the last both use the same synth, also both of mine use the same synth.

I rather expected folks would pick up on number 4 - it does rather stand out :lol:
However I'm very pleased nobody got me for 13.

Seeing the names for the rest just demonstrates I don't have a clue about other peoples preferred style - either that or lots of you were flying false flags!

Yes. I am that Linux nut {apparently now an 'elderly'}
Onwards and... err... sideways!

Its certainly one of the more "danceable" tracks in the collection.

Sadly, I'm so at the edge of the grid I can barely get a text out, back Sat. Sorry to miss the fun!

"The Best" piece of gear is subjective.

I’ve really enjoyed listening to this, and my wife has too. There’s actually a real flow to the variety and some beautiful work. It shows that in a mix and with great ideas the analog vs digital/ hardware vs software is completely academic. If it works it works. Anyway here’s my guesses I take my hat off to whomever knew the spoken words in the vocal oscillator on the microfreak!

1 sub 37,
2 rocket
3sc55, piano sound and stabs
4jdx8
5minilogue, lovely build this.
6eimagine, lovely percussive elements
7minilogue, that’s a nice bass!
8 microfreak - correct!
9jdx8i, it’s the E piano made me go for this
10 yoshimi previously owned up!
11pigments that’s a wide palette of sounds! Nice work
12yoshimi. Mmm nice
13 106, there’s some lovely shimmers in this. V relaxing had this on after having blood taken at GPS and found it just the ticket!
14 sub 37 having a paraphonic moment ….possibly. I think I heard a lovely resonance filter drop, so hmm, Moog!

I know I’m miles off so just smile indulgently Rich!

And once again thanks for providing the Impetus for us! :clap:

You've got roughly half right I think (I haven't got the list in front of me right now).

My thanks to everyone that contributed, and to Rich especially for his work.

The three tracks I liked best for sounds turn out to be the same synth, one which I bought fairly recently. Arturia had a $49 offer for Pigments. I loved the demos, bought it, but haven't even had time to launch it yet. That time will now be soon! Thanks again everybody.

No need to thank me for the sequencing, that was the exact order in which they were submitted, so you did it yourselves :D
