Hi,

I just finished my first proper Synthwave Track. I would love to get some feedback from you guys!



There isn't too much going on in the 'verses' because I would like to have some vocals there, but sadly I can't really sing. Maybe I'll give it a try with the BV512 some time.

Sounds nice though I do feel you this track could really do with a heavier snare...

Thanks!

Yeah, the drums are the hardest part in Synthwave in my opinion. I tried to find a snare that has not that much attack but a lot of noise in the decay. For my taste it could use even a little bit more gated reverb, but with the built-in one in Umpf Retro it get's a bit to messy. Maybe I could try to send the dry snare through a RV7000 with some 80s Lexicon IRs instead.
