Very interesting!
It's like an exploration of morphing. I like it!

Fat sounds
galore on this thing. I look forward to using it more in future. Thanks for listening.

To the dump
I like the sounds a lot, and the structure of the music. Good one! What exactly is Zebralite? (When I searched for it I got a bicycle headlamp - if you made this with a bike headlight you are a true genius!)

I am a twit
It's actually called "Zebralette". I'll correct the blurb after I've watered what's left of the garden. Thanks for your comment, Philip.

To the Dump
There are some very nice mood changes happening here, Graham. The rhythm section is real solid and the sounds you explore are interesting and engaging. The motif weaves it way nicely through the transitions. Enjoyed, Peter.

Cheers
It gets out of sync just before the drums go daft. I'll fix it one day. Thanks for giving it a listen, Peter.

I may invest
in the full version - which was the whole point of the free version. Well done, Zebralette people. Thanks for listening, Mr S.

Great!
The beat has a rubber ball style which meshes well with the music; I liked it lot!

Boing!
Yes, that beat does sound like a ball bouncing - very 80's, as tempie points out. Thanks for listening, Mr K.

very cool
has a great 80's new wave sound. i love flange and used to use it all the time playing live but i can never get it to sound right in a song. it sounds perfect here.

The good 80's
like New Order and The Cure, not the dreadful crap that infested the charts at that time. The flange is just a GB setting, and the whole thing is just a way for me to explore this free synth. I'm happy it amused a few others too, thanks.

It's OK
I was pleased with the speed with which I was able to throw it together. I've picked up some mixing skills over the last two years. Thanks for the kind remarks.

treasure at the dump
cool sounding synth. the guitars work really well with this. liked the acoustic break as well ( a true ovation sound)... a nice diversion to bring the synth work back in

Any excuse
to put the Ovation into a tune (and its little brother, the Applause uke.)Good to see you, Vic.

Zebralette
Yeah, I have one of those. Good fun. I also recommend the Zebra 2. I mean, if you were looking to go in that direction. This doesn't actually remind me of the 80s. This is far more interesting. But then I tuned most of that stuff out anyway, so what do I know?

I was thinking
of New Order's "Corruption and Lies" album as I was noodling. Sadly the price of the full - blown Zebra put me off - I'd rather get a mike or a bass. Plus I generally prefer real instruments and tend to use synths for a little colour or wash in the background. See you around, Les.

Interesting
Really liked the way it introduced the string parts etc. layers upon layers. I'll have to play this next time Im driving "to the dump" with some rubbish!! cheers Mark

Working title
of course, but there's the old joke about the Lone Ranger going "to the dump, to the dump, to the dump, dump, dump," which has little to do with the music here, but what the heck. Thanks for listening, Mark.

To the Dump
interesting synth sound ... I like what you do with it and the bits of added guitar and bass give it a nice change in the middle ... yeah, the inane drummer stopped in for a bar or two. Cool stuff

Inane and insane
That's me banging away at the keyboard. I really fancy an electronic kit. I can do guitars and other strung instruments, and I can fake keyboards, but percussion has eluded me. Christmas is coming - I hope the budget can extend to some tubs. Thank you for listening, Mr G.

Very nice
Well, you seem to have this nice, undeniable pop-rock sensibility that resonate with me very well. Hope to hear more from you soon.

Just noticed this
Pressures of pesky work have kept me from contributing much of late, but I have a few things on the back burner. I'm glad you enjoyed it.
