Hello again.

I've recorded a few notes of a nice poly pad sound coming from the Deepmind 12 to EMTEC Sound 1 cassette tape.
I recorded it using a PHILIPS N2235.
Then I played back the sounds on my home stereo and sent them to my trusty Tascam DR-05.
A few cuts and fades and they were ready for the NNXT, where I carefully adjusted some parameters to my liking.

The result is a beautiful lo-fi yet complex and nuanced instrument, very well suited for any slow genre that requires an organic sound.
Play some chords. Across the octaves. Note by note. Enjoy.

It's my first creation for you guys so PLEASE check it out and give me a little feedback, I'd like to know what you think and what I can do better!
I'm already sorry that the wav files are rather large, something I want to improve in future endeavors.

I forgot the audio demo!
Only a little bit of reverb added, increased polyphony and a slight filter variation applied. Big chords.

..and woodwinds and electric piano and antialiasing which is just tape hiss.. it's like a peaceful one-patch-lofi-pocketorchestra!
Thank you so much! I'm glad you enjoy it! :)
