Always impressed by your productions man. The sound design is fantastic. You manage to keep things evolving but in very subtle ways. And creating percussion with that much rhythm and feeling is super impressive.
And I have to add that I really like how you managed to add such a variety of dynamics and modulation to your song. I am always struggling in Renoise to make songs sound dynamical (not because it is not possible, but its a bit complicated to do and midi recording sucks in my opinion + I am too lazy to manually edit this all). So extra kudos for that. IMO the dynamics (besides a lot of other details) make your song sound so nice and persistent.
true. that’s been a focus with this one, as it is with most of my “songs”.
there is not much melodic / harmonic content, so at the end of the day, the whole thing lives and breathes from modulation and subtle changes in timbre that induce a more organic / less static impression.
it can get a bit tedious at times, i have to agree. but there are lot of little helpers inside renoise and synths like odin, that feature a random source for modulation. using that in the right spot and with a subtle amount can have an already huge impact on the perceived expression of synthetic instruments. and the best thing about it is, once it is set up in the mod-matrix, the machine will do all the work for ya
