    Aw I just heard one of your locked songs on Calum’s podcast, great stuff!

  • @audrey  6 weeks

    Thank you for the kind words on "No Hurry". Appreciate it.

  • @iwilleatyou 7 weeks

    Thanks for the listens!

  • @beat  7 weeks

    Haha! This is so funny that you mention this, how would Mars taste...
    here they asked the same Q

    and by the way, they’re all so good as you might as well know yourself.

    I see the protein point... but, Wallace & Gromit for whom I’ve created this would not agree, I’m afraid. And the Moon is such an attractive obscurity object, I couldn’t resist the strong believe that it might just as well be made of cheese. Swiss cheese in my case but a well aged cheddar would do it too.
    Thx for taking your time.

    Best trick an old studio sound engineer taught me for making VSTs sound more organic was guitar pedals! Even virtual ones. I've been known to stick Guitar Rig over some pretty basic synth sounds!

  • @frozenlonesome  Feb 20

    Cheers for checking out Flood Tide Of Filth Redux. I’ve been doubling up my bass tracks for that extra juicy bass goodness. Glad you liked it.

  • @looprication  Feb 20

    ...and I've been meaning to tell you, you have excellent taste in influences

    Cheers for the comment

  • @saxylizbeth Feb 12

    Drunk Bunnies 🐰🐰🐰🍻🍻🍻 Thank you for your comment! It’s a soprano sax solo - pretty close. Any excuse for a Tom Baker impression!

  • @medievil Feb 12

    Thank you so much for your kind comments. 😀

  • @js6 Feb 11

    Hey and thanks for the comment. It was me humming a melody which I then layered on multiple tracks with loads of effects on them.

  • @aflinner  Feb 9

    A few things, have one recorded that I should get uploaded soon. Got a late start this year ‘cause I’m sick. Hoping to get a good amount done still, but I don’t think I’m gonna push myself too hard this year.

  • @beat  Feb 8

    It is there, believe you me. It is moving ah, not to
    Thx for filling in the story...

  • @themighty  Feb 8

    Many thanks for your kind feedback on The Infinite and the Polar 😀

    Came here because of your puns, they're all great! 😀

  • @fonte  Feb 8

    A degree in ancient philosophy eh?? I'll have to start revising in that section of the library.... 😉

  • @beat  Feb 8

    Thx. Ja, rockhands in the air for HatCore. ˋ].

  • @cts  Feb 8

    Thank you for stopping by for a listen - very much appreciated!

  • @frozenlonesome  Feb 8

    Appreciate the kind feedback on Check and Let Me Know. Cheers 😎

  • @frozenlonesome  Feb 8

    Thanks for the listen and your thoughts on FrozenOneSynth. Only had the Opsix for a few weeks but really liking it. Fits a lot of my sound design ideas. It’s a deep approach to FM synthesis / subtractive synth with a accessible design and smart menus. Found my way around very quickly. As my friend said, “I hope this is the droid I’ve been looking for”

  • @cts  Feb 8

    Thank you for stopping by the Jelly Factory for a listen. Much appreciated.

  • @nahlej381  Feb 7

    Thanks or listening to my silly song and saying nice stuff about it! Happy FAWM!

  • @arthurrossi Feb 7

    I would like to thank you very much for your kind words on "Country-song"!

  • @wacha  Feb 7

    Thank you for your kind words on "Ones in Instinct".

  • @beat  Feb 7

    Thx again for listening. I have made a mess of my track idea though... the hiss/sigh should be the a backbone but if no one can understand the building how should they understand the backbone. I forgot to check what a Narzisse is called in English... it’s a Daffodil. So, my flower power game with the word narcissist don’t work! I’m so stupid sometimes...
    at least you liked the music.

  • @radioovermoscow Feb 7

    Chur! I don't quite have the pitch-perfect deep voice Philip Oakey has, but the weird accent I hit on in this tune suggests maybe I should go looking for it 😀

  • @chroes  Feb 7

    Thank you for your comment on Chasing Audrey! ☺️

  • @beat  Feb 5

    Kind words my friend. Thank you. I’ll hear ya...

  • @sci Feb 4

    oh dang! now that you've mentioned it, "pool area in Sonic Adventure on the Dreamcast" is very much The Vibe that was going on in my song.
    it's funny because I felt like there was *some sort of* oldschool sound in there but I couldn't place it exactly, lol
    thanks for commenting!

  • @dancrook Feb 4

    Thanks for the kind words bro

  • @colgoo Feb 3

    Just thought I’d let you know that my collaboration with @jorh for “Throwing Bombs Behind Enemy Lines” is up, if you’d like a listen.

  • @gm7  Feb 3 was a fun song to do.

  • @sbs2018  Feb 2

    Thanks for your "subversive" comment on "What It Is" - love it! So fun!

  • @emkaydeebee  Feb 2

    Hey, thanks for your comment. You’re on 3 already?! Nice one!

  • @shortdan  Feb 2

    Aha! I've got the latest version of Logic installed but I'm not sure I've actually fired it up yet. I've gone so deep down the Ableton rabbit hole it's daunting to even open another DAW now. Back in the day I used to bounce happily between Logic, Ableton & Maschine too!

  • @robynmackenzie  Feb 2

    Thanks for the kind words and the suggestions on Graveyard! The article is helpful. 😀

  • @frozenlonesome  Feb 2

    Thanks for checking out Out Of This World. Glad you liked it.

    We'll see! Hope the inspiration flows for you as well. 😀

  • @w1n  Jan 28

    Hi there, nice set of influences you have there. Checked out some of the tunes on the EP on Spotify, the title track was really cool. Looking forward to hearing your output this FAWM

  • @ryako  Jan 26

    I'm here! Nice to see you back, too!

  • @thelowestbitter  Jan 26

    Hello! I have restrung my guitar so probably expect to see it a little bit, but guitars are probably still mostly dead. Hope you have a good FAWM!

  • @spiderhound1  Jan 26

    @kissinginpublic Happy FAWM! 2021 let's GO! 😀

    I know what you mean about this FAWM. I'm certainly expecting it to be the bright spot of a covid restricted February. Good luck this year - hope you get some good tunes out of this year's FAWM.

  • @vomvorton  Jan 17

    Yo YO yo yo yO!

  • @guatecoop  Jan 17
