Unfinished Hopes

This was originally just a spontaneous “jamming around” on one of the preset patches on my new synth back in 1999. (Yamaha AN1x owners might recognize the arpeggiator loop.) About 6 years later (synth was already sold) I found the recording on an old tape (yes, tape!) and tried to manually re-create the nice arp-loop in GarageBand. When this went well, I sort of finished the rest of the song. This version ISN’T the Yamaha AN1x, it’s 100% Apple GarageBand soft-synths.

The original version of the song, made in 1999, was made using a Yamaha AN1x. The remake is made with Apple Garageband and only stock soft-synth in there. The original version is recorded from cassette, so there’s a little whitenoise in it.
