Any Questions? - Settlers

New Year, new tunes!  Here's a song idea titled Settlers done "inside the box" using all soft synths.  It seems that no matter how hard I try to use soft synths to work on ideas, they just end up sounding too sterile and cold.  Don't get be wrong, I've composed a lot of sterile and cold sounding music but soft synths just don't have the same warmth that "real" synths have.  Next...

I used Native Instruments Battery 4 to create the drum groove and Arturia V Collection X for the synth sounds.  CMI V for the synth bass, OP-Xa V for the arpeggio, and Synthi V for the weird sound during the bridge.

P.S. For those that don't know, “inside the box” is a term that refers to the process of using only a computer and software (the box) rather than external hardware (synthesizers, mixers, etc). In the past, using external hardware was the only option, but today, it is now possible to create professional music completely “inside the box”.
