Life is Good

The idea to this track was to try out pads a little more. I wanted to have some bright clear pads to fill the room and I hope that I did OK. I got the inspiration for the pads (especially at 0.46 - 1.12) from the Tour de France track from 2009.

Anyway, as usual I used a lot of great presets from you guys here at the SCS community.
I have tweaked them all but I think that the ones who did them will recognize their sounds. Thank you very much all of you!

I also used not only one but two compressors (with side chaining) for the first time in this track. Thanks to Jason and Rej who wrote this post, http://www.singlecellsoftware.com/node/1337, about using the compressor and side chaining.

Presets used:
- Chip Lead
- Bells
PCM Synth:
- PB SoundTrax
- Bass Suspense
- Bass TX81Z Log
- Electronomist Psy


Hope you enjoy it and that life is good!

Really nice work.... dreamy and unique... good range of sounds used too. Nice mixed stereo panning, it's balanced very well :D

@Mike: Thanks a lot for your thoughts, and you are correct I like basslines and beats. Perhaps a little to much sometimes, that's why I have to practice pads :)

@jblann1: Hej Jason, I bow and say thank you very much for these warming words from a master of sounds!

@mniip: Thanks a bunch for the nice feedback. Glad that you liked it and its sounds. Good luck with your exams!
