Hi! I’m Valentín from Chile living on México. Love Arturia and all types of music (especially electronic music).
This is my very first Synthwave/Retrowave song from my project “Darkornix” (Dark + Unicorn).
I use only the OP-Xa synth for the synths. For the drums I use Polyplex from Reaktor NI and all effects I use are from Arturia. Tape Mello-Fi on the Master for the Lo-fi touch jeje.
I do the Mix and Master too.
Happy Thursday to all!
Great tune, Valentin!
I’m not an expert on synthwave but Secret for Xandara (kind, polite girl) seems typical of the genre reminiscent of the eighties (arp and drum, Linndrum, DMX?) A very productive era I witnessed.
I love the Op-X3. Besides Arturia presets, I bought lots of Op-X3 presets from Reverb Machine.
Do you use compression on individual tracks, on master?
Yes! That’s right , I try to to some music with big influence on 80s music
I emulate some drums in Polyplex (a NI reaktor instrument), trying to match the sound of Liindrum, DMX.
But the most important is the rich and wonderfull sound of the OP-Xa jeje
And yes, for the individual tracks I use (in this order in the chain): Tube-Culture Dist from Artuira (But with a preset I created that gives a little of Harmonics not to add to much gain), a Fabfilter EQ to clean some frecuencies and then FET-COMP from Arturia. Then in the master I add a Tape Mello-Fi from Arturia too and a L2 for add some volume and glue all together.
If you want some preset of the OP-Xa or from a FX just let me know
Thank you for listen to my music
I searched on the Polyplex (it’s really a VST drum machine). Your drum sounds like the 80s. I mentionned Linndrum and DMX since I have Addictive 2 Reel Machine pack. Yes Op-Xa does most of the job.
It’s always a pleasure to listen to good music well mixed and masterized. I’m lazy and don’t often mix and I use Fet76 and Tube-VCA. I’m a bit shameful .
The son of a good friend (Mathieu Cerf) composes and produces techno; I know what’s involved in mixing and mastering. Too much work.
