Hello Twoism. I wanted to challenge myself by trying to make a recreation of one of my favorite tracks, Echus. Also to have a version without a noisy crowd. I would say the chords were the hardest part of the challenge because of all the small variations Boards put in there, presumably because it was played by hands. Anyway, I hope you will enjoy it.

Are you sure BOC didn't just give you the studio version of Echus and you're being modest? This is great! :D

I made the patch with serum. I just tried to mimic the first note from the source and then play the chords with that. It sounded quite like it, but the chords also needed something so I layered a quiet simple square with it to get the missing harmonics.

Serum really is a dark horse, so capable.

Echus just hits you right in the heart every time. You did an excellent job transcribing the chord progression & recreating the timbres/ textures. There are chords that feel open and neutral until an additional note enters the picture and somehow shifts the entire piece harmonically into that intensely heartfelt zone..
