This is a melody that I originally recorded as one of my very first tracks in Garageband back in July 2011. I was playing with a synth called the "Voodoo Grove A Stepper" and made a techno like song with it. And then I started playing around adding more instruments, choir. Maybe not with the biggest thought process. And it was before I started reading music theory books. But the result ended up as an upbeat song with a mix of electronica and pop.
At first I did not want to upload it but I was encouraged by ihussain because he wanted to hear what I had done with this stepper sound. The steppers are simply synth sounds with a mix of filters that change in 1/16 or 1/8 pattern giving an arpeggiated effect. Some of the filters produce very odd harmonics making the sound dissonant. It is a cool effect.
I gave it a brief mixing in Logic to improve balance of instruments and master compression before uploading it but all the notes and sounds are like I made them in originally.
