What I Like About It

  1. I’m using the full keyboard here, instead of a drum pad controller as usual (my Korg padKontrol’s settings knob that lets me choose note values broke off). The harmony is simply on the D minor scale, wavering between the natural and melodic minor.
  2. I’ve used the patch before. It’s unobtrusive and just floats.
  3. Many of the transitions are smooth, even when multiple notes change simultaneously.

What I Don’t Like About It

  1. The equalization is terrible, with lots of phase distortion that makes this whole piece sound muddy.
  2. Some of the chords are just too clustery.
  3. Due to my clunky fingers, sometimes the wrong notes stick out dramatically.

Note: These are rough drafts. Constructive criticism is welcomed, of course.
