The December 2014 KVR One Synth Challenge was about our (Full Bucket Music and myself) Ragnarök synthesizer. Here's my own track I submitted (just for the honor of participating), inspiration came from an obvious German synthesizer group from yesteryear.

All sounds are of course from Ragnarök. I used only sounds from the default preset bank that comes with the synthesizer, more or less like a sound demo, and I made all those sounds of course. Sounds where tweaked slightly for this track, but are still very much recognizable from the default presets :D

Hmmmmm... so nobody here likes TD-style synthesizer stuff then :(

TBH: Me, not really no... But I do think it is cool that you managed to do all that with just your own Ragnarök. :)

Tried to edit the thread title but no cigar.

Wanted to add: inspired by TD/Hyperborea album.

Fine work, very TDish (they're a regular part of my gym soundtrack).

I imagine it's very satisfying to make music you enjoy with a software instrument you've made yourself - getting ALL those 1's and 0's lined up just the way you like them. I've made a couple of meatspace instruments and find it adds something to the playing experience.

While I'm here, thanks for all your work on the Going Freeware thread. It's a great resource.

I love TD. Saw them on the Phaedra tour at the Guildford Civic back in the mists of time (late 70's if memory serves me) and was blown away!

Thanks for the compliments. It is indeed great to make music with an instrument I designed myself (of course Björn, of Full Bucket fame, did the excellent coding). However, it is even more satisfying when a whole bunch of musicians/composers are going at it for a month and submit tracks that where made solely with 'my' synthesizer, pushing it into sonic territory beyond my own imagination. Total mood boost :D

Nice track and the TD influence is there (of course). I saw then on the Ricochet tour in 1975 - awesome in York Minster!

Super synth - and it's really quite surprising what amazing tracks people managed to compose using it.

BTW- it was fun doing it.

Yes, some incredible sound work in those tracks. I was blown away with what most of you came up with. Promises a lot for Ragnarök Mark-2, as that one will be even more 'performance oriented' and have some nice new goodies under the hood ;)
