Wow man, you just keep rolling these out!
I like how the drums are simple but then there's a lot of rhythmic stuff on top, like the plan muted guitar arpeggios, and what sounds like really short decay synth stuff.

Thanks man!

My partner has lended me his Juno106 and man... its an inspiring synth. Doing a lot of HW based composition these days, not trying to re-invent the wheel and reaching for some nostalgia to draw people in.

Much appreciate you listening and the feedback!

I was in Toulouse last week (?) for a Tycho show. I've been working with/for Tycho for a few years off and on.

Sounds great Chase. Excellent mix. Lots of air with every instrument having lots of room in it's space. Can't say I really noticed the guitar until the end. Listening again and there it is. Very tastefully layered.

Everything sounds clear, good sound selection and good track structure and progression.
Could be part of the soundtrack of Stranger Things

Within two seconds I was into this track. I think its the combo of the retro synth and the snare. What synth did you use if I may ask?

Killer man!

Thanks!

I used a Nord Lead 2 for the patch, and processed it with SoundToys Microshifter, Phasemistress and Echoboy. The low pass filtering is post those processes, its Ableton's Autofilter.

Re: [Synthwave/Chillwave] Neon Cities - Toulouse

Saw this forever ago, been meaning to listen, need a break from grading : )

Live bass guitar on this? That lead sound is so 90's trance-y, I like it. Really like how the bass was handled in this track. Everything really just sits nicely, is present but soft. Really smooth sheen on this mix.

At this point I'm anxious for a Neon Cities EP or LP.

Good fun! Cool slow groover

The breaks are somewhat indecisive.. in the way "not sure what to do - let's mute the groove section for some bars".. The remaining instruments continue as if they are not aware of the breaks.
