thanks to everyone, especially to PinkNoise Studio and ReasonTalk staff.

I would like to briefly tell you how the piece was born, without boring you and with my bad english ...
Covid19 has entered my life: I work in a large hospital in Italy, precisely in Milan, one of the cities that has suffered the most for this pandemic disease.
The song is a journey, in the middle of a breath, difficult, forced by a mask with the sound of a monitor in the background. But it's a journey with eyes closed, a journey that takes you far, high in the sky (as someone suggested me) or in a fantastic abyss (as my daughter imagined when she designed the artwork). We don't realize our breathing until it becomes a tiring, almost painful act.
I have used Maia everywhere (obviously) including drums and using Reason's players and native effects.

thank you!

Happy winner here! Maia Orange is great, really like how the 18dB filter interacts with the waveforms and the filter drive. Great and CPU friendly stuff right there.

Congrats to winners and thanks for organizing.

You always come up with new things when restricted to just one synth.

Congratulations to the winners and a big thanks to all who contributed. There were some really good entries and if you put them all together, it really says a lot about how truly versatile MAIA Orange is. I want to point out, just because you didn't win doesn't mean your songs weren't good. There were many great entries. This was a really difficult contest to judge and the judges' votes were spread out across the board, so this was by no means a landslide. It was a very close contest. You are all winners! Hope to see you in the next contest.
Players are to MIDI what synthesizers are to waveforms.

This is a very pleasant surprise. I would like to thank PinkNoise Studios and ReasonTalk for this competition. At least I didn't have to think about the work problems associated with covid for a while.

Maia Orange is great synth, it's very CPU friendly, and easy to use. {there wasn't manual when this contest started, and I found a way to work in it :mrgreen: }

Thank you

Congratulations! Thank you for the competition.
I loved all the entries but I especially liked Turbopage's entry.
It made me think of tough times (including covid19) and how music helps us put things into different perspectives.

I hope all who are working right now putting their lives at risk are safe and that this virus is contained soon.

Oiiiii S/o to everyone!! Special thanks to Pinknoise and Reasontalk ofcourse. Very happy to be amongst the winners! These contests are nice, I really love 80's sounds which maia orange is obviously packed with and then mixing it with a new age sound. Was pretty easy to figure out and tweak, very cool you can run external signals in it too (which I didnt ended up doing in this track but I did play around with it). It has proven to be a one stop shop having listened to all entries hehe!! Also really love this one maia mallet preset. I rented it once because I felt I needed the preset again haha. I havent even tried the newest version so Im excited to try that out too.
