In early 2016, I had an epiphany/lost my mind. I decided to stop trying to acquire expensive analog gear to do my bidding, and instead surrender myself to only using the computer instead. Coupled with inspiration from the discovery of the newish Future Retro Wave genre, the result was these three tracks. All done in Logic X, featuring its own factory plugins + the vintage synth plugins collection from Arturia. It took a few weeks of massaging 1’s and 0’s, but I’m still impressed and super satisfied with the result.
The only thing I wished happened differently? Writing MORE of this material. Inspiration was absolutely F-L-O-W-I-N-G but I eventually just ran out of steam. I will definitely have to get back into this mindset!
Since I was feeling so badass, I attached the title 'Finalizer' to this selection of tunes. It comes from the name a star destroyer in the Star Wars universe. Total. Badass.
