PsychNerD – Aeon

SOS Vol.2Æon is a simply structured electro-house track, using complex synthesis sounds coming mainly from two custom G2X modular patches. A nice blend of chill in the back and punch in the front sharing sound elements with Voyager 1. This track was first released for the Sound of SceneSat Vol. 2 compilation. Thanks to Ziphoid of SceneSat Radio for inviting me again !

Oh and… you may here soon a new remix of this track soon… and not from me !

Most of the sound sources are hardware, the G2X providing the background noise and ambiance, the Virus for the CS80’ish sound, pads from the Wavestation, arpeggios from the DX11 (still can get usefull stuff out of this one too), even a little guitar in the break. Sometimes everything just fall right into place, making a perfect blend out of simplicity.

Trying to identify the exact original sample and do it exactly like the old one without loosing all the 8 bit and clipping character is the key… Go check the original for a little comparison!

Hope you’ll enjoy this classic remake.
