I kind of feel this site has lost its way generally. Views and activity seems to be at an all time low. Techno is massive again but people aren't tying themslves to the 'mmnl' tag any more. As a fashionable term associated with all that click clack, m-nus stuff, it's dead. Although the name of a sit...

Essentially it's an Arp Quartet.
100% analog , old and cheap (<300E)
For strings and pads it should be a good tool.

You seem to have added some extra percussive sounds, added the mangled, low pitched vocals, and made the breakdown a bit more epic and atmospheric - is that right?

I was only blunt because you clearly have all the technical skills in place. If you didn't, I wouldn't even be honest with you because I don't wish to discourage you from building up your skills.

Your sound design, programming, arrangement and engineering skills are solid. I liked your creative use of automation in particular. But this track...
