It's been a while since I posted any music as life has been nuts. Anyhow, here is a "short" tour de force, the germ of which was inspired by a Wavestate patch called Voyage. I tweaked it and called it Voyager as it sounded a bit cosmic to me, and that was the start. As you know, sometimes songs write themselves, and then some take a lot of blood, sweat and tears to get right. This was in the latter camp, but I think it was worth it.
This is a very laid back, ambient noodling track. The underlying rhythms in both sections are the new Korg Wavestate doing its work, and I built on top of that.
There are many synths on this
- Prophet X
- Dune (VST)
- Omnipshere (VST)
- Avenger (VST)
- Biosphere (Kontakt VST)
With both the Montage and Prophet turning in very good CS80 emulations in different places. The Prophet is the more strident "Vangelis type" brass sound. The Montage is used in the second part of the song, and sounds gorgeous, especially (I think) around 9:34, which is mainly Montage (sounding very analog and lush) underpinned by bass notes from the Prophet.
A big shout out as well to the reverb used on the song to create really dense reverb. It is UVI Plate (in "Insane Mode" during mixdown). This has quickly become my favourite reverb for ambient music. It is so rich and lush.
