This is for my friends short film, specifically for the credits, where he has the credits running against an animated Outrun-like video game, only the car transforms into a fighter jet and flies off into the sky, kind of like the way the jet flies in the Afterburner video game. Who knows if it will ever be released, but here's my track for it:

Oh - all synth parts are Subtractor. No other synths used. :puf_smile:

I really enjoyed this, sounds simultaneously like both an 80's TV show intro (think Streethawk) and a hifi remake of a classic Sega arcade game soundtrack. Sorry I cant offer much in form of constructive criticism.

This is fantastic. Great development, very clear mixing, and you make the Sub sound like a million bucks. Top, top track, man,

Hahah - oh man - this is awesome! It literally drips the 80's. Nice work, man! If I close my eyes, I can hear this over the end credits of a dozen movies from the 80's, as well as a dozen different cartoons aimed at teens in the 80's. Spot on, man.

LOL!

I was listening to this in my car Saturday night, and I noticed the cowbell was a bit too prominent. And I giggled furiously as I pictured this:

Thanks! - I was unfortunately too young to appreciate the music in the 80s. I do remember watching Thundercats, Transformers, Voltron, Silverhawks, Spectreman, Tranzor-Z and every single 80s Ninja movie though. Good times...
