Grumpysnorlax - SURF full length synthpop boombap album made entirely on OP-1

Hey everyone I just released a boombap/lofi album made with all OP-1 synth. A few tracks feature synths I made from organic sounds and the built in microphone, including my voice, blowing in a beer bottle, smacking a wine glass, etc. This album was inspired by a beach “vibe” and would love to know what everyone thinks! It’s available digitally everywhere music is sold and on cassette through INNEROCEAN RECORDS! https://open.spotify.com/album/2zEAYXBxnnXuRTxUzBuBA4?si=7GKFU6CnQ4KVkEUHhF7Iqw

    One of your tunes "surf" just came up on my release radar (Spotify). Lovin it. Love that initial synth sound, and how it blends with the Highgate... Is that string?

  • @ludicrouSpeed yeah that’s the string synth and then the pulse and ofcourse the main lead is dr wave because it’s such a beautiful lead!

    Thanks man! I'ma listen again with this new insight <3

  • Damn, I just listened through all your stuff on Spotify twice today and it's really, really awesome! I'm trying to get myself to finish my first full tape at the moment and your stuff is very inspiring. Might just push me over that edge :smiley:

  • @Grumpysnorlax your tune came on during one of my bus routes today ( I drive a bus ), after an iron and wine tune, and three passengers commented on how good the music was as they disembarked while your tune was playing. Any chance you can hook us up with the string preset?

  • @Operator666 thankyou! I really appreciate the kind words. My best advice to finishing it up is don’t get frustrated and nothing is perfect. I get caught up so much trying to make something perfect and losing the idea I was after. Just have fun!

  • @ludicrouSpeed yo that’s awesome, I’ve had plans on releasing all my patches and drums just hard to name them all especially when they come out of the op1 as a bunch of numbers I get lost trying to think of which one sounds like what! Will announce it in the future here and on instagram! Also thought it could be grouped into my patreon when I launch it (plan on doing how to videos and workflow videos) but I don’t want to make people pay for them just as a added bonus I’d give out some of my tape files and patches.
