As the One Synth Challenge rules dictate, all the instruments, sounds and noises are generated by ZynAddSubFX. Well, almost, because as Linux users we have some more choice than on other platforms. So I used 11 ZynAddSubFX-DSSI plug-ins in Qtractor together with 3 separate Yoshimi instances for the voice patches that use the PADsynth engine (apparently the DSSI plug-in can't handle those patches). I used seq24 to trigger everything and Qtractor for mixing and a bit of mastering. Some external effects were allowed, given they are freely available and don't alter the original sound (so no phasers, choruses etc.) so I used some EQ, some gates and some compressors.
Voice patches I used: - SuperSaw 2 (Paul Nasca) - Extreme (Will J. Godfrey) - Bass 2 (Paul Nasca) - Eeooww (Will J. Godfrey) - Drumkit (Paul Nasca, tweaked and layered, the snare sound consists of 4 or 5 different snare sounds) - Snare 1 (M?sterious) - Soft Kick (AutoStatic) - 8 Bit Car (M?sterious) - Soft Ahh (Will J. Godfrey) - Wind and Surf (Will J. Godfrey) - Binary Piano 2 (Paul Nasca)
The track was composed and sequenced on the train while commuting to and from my work. Hence the title. And sorry about the xrun, that's because of the 11 ZynAddSubFX-DSSI plugins getting loaded.
