I downloaded another Arturia synth
demo last night, specifically the DX7, a classic '80s synth released by Yamaha. It became incredibly popular, and many of the presets became iconic sounds of the decade, used in all kinds of hit songs. While scrolling through it, I immediately recognized quite a few, and definitely will be using this in the future when I need that retro synth vibe. I started with Track 5, and initially went with a progression in E minor, though I abandoned that, and the little progression just became an intro essentially. The rest of the song is in D major, although I wasn't actually sure where it would go; I moved to Track 1, and outlined a progression that vamps on a little 3 note line, D to A, and then back and forth between E and that A, only returning to D at a few points. I still was sort of in the E minor mindset here, but after dropping in some other tracks, clearly playing in D major, I went that direction, which I think turned out pretty cool, at least thus far. I didn't add any drums, but overall, I like the idea, and I think some kind of percussion could be cool, though maybe not just a typical, straight-forward beat... I'll have to try some things and see what happens.
