Was intended for SounDevotion Competition Round 95, but we needed to catch up with the bills and let the cable/internet shut off for a little while, so I couldn’t enter. The THX pitch bend is what happens when you have a synth set for polyphonic and glide at the same time.
The point of the contest was to make a chillwave (80s synth retro) track with some sort of inspiration from Sega’s mid-80s arcade racing classic. There were many good and surprising results throughout.
It is my experience and understanding that sounds many people attribute to synthesizers in that period weren’t really synthesizers at all, so I tried to use as few as possible.
Vocal by Momone Momo, with additional vocals by Sekka Yufu, voicebanks for the UTAU singing speech synthesizer.
