This tutorial is based upon a few VSTis that are available for free, just to show that it is possible to make spacesynth music without buying expensive synths.

The Text-to-speech tool that is mentioned in this tutorial was changed yesterday so now all numbers are randomized while using the webbased demo version.

I get the impression that Ben claims that he is the original composer of the song eventhough you wrote it.

It is possible, but I don't think that it matters.

In the sentence "A song I made in Cyber-Tracker" he used the word "made" and not "composed" nor "wrote". My english is not good but I assume that it is ok to use the word "made" when he has made an arrangement of someone else song.
At least he didn't gave the song a new name Smile

Actually it is quite fun to hear other peoples interpretation of these tutorial songs. It would be cool if someone could make a new version of the 1st tutorial song A Step Into the Void. Actually I have been working on a couple of remixes of that song the latest months, but I haven't come up with some sounds that I like. The search for patches is quite time consuming. The trumpet-, Junobass- and the bell patches from the 4th tutorial works really good in the 1st tutorial song.

It's a nice SID conversion and I think Ben should mention who originally composed the song. There are a lot of Youtube comments people asking for an mp3 for instance but no links are given. I know Ben is a member of this board so I think it would be fair towards Staffan to give credit where its due.

A thing I think ive mentioned before: If you listen to Tom Lacy's song Sonicwaves (Alien Remix) wich you find either on Synthesizer Dance Vol.9 or his own cd Welcome to the Future and then listen to this YouTube vid from Ben Anderson http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YpAVSP1xeVs there is a striking resemblance and note that Ben's song in the video has a totally different title (Galactic Race). Now i wont judge before i know about this but to me it seems like a Tom Lacy song (since it was on his record).

Here he also uses the word "made" and i quote: "A song I made after having a spastic fit of inspiration one evening! Hope you enjoy it! ~BenA. "

Doesnt this seem a bit odd? And Ben, if you read this, feel free to explain! Very Happy

You're free to interpret word "made" while you know the original composition is yours. But notice, that YT visitors have no idea about it - in this case it's clear for them the tune's original composer is Ben, there's no doubt about it. I don't suppose that's ok with you.

Here is another version of the tutorial song, now with sync lead and trumpet sounds:
https://soundcloud.com/retrosynthers-album-prom/04-fly-trough-space-starmix

Maybe it is time to make some new tutorials. I would like to learn how to get good variation in the hi-hat sequence (it often gets quite static), improve the stereo perspective and get a nice atmosphere, learn how to place the instruments in the stereo perspective to separate them and make it easier to hear them, learn how to get a good mix, etc. Personally I would like to read an Area51 tutorial, but probably that's only me.
