    Decided to mess with some synthy stuff, and loving the show and the intro song I figured I'd kind of re-create it.
    Believe it or not, the drums in this are actually GGD! But of course, blended with some more electronic sounding kick and snare samples.

    Hope you like it!

    Btw: Am I missing something, or do we not have a synth, or atleast, an "other instruments" section? We really should...

    Nice job on the cover! Did you use Diva? Saw the tags and taking a wild guess.

    What are your thoughts on Diva? Any experience with other synths to compare? I've got the electronic bug, too. It's disturbing how long I can sit and mess with sound design or even mangling samples. Such a fun world that gets a bad rap.

    Thanks dude! Yeah it's basically all Diva except the bass. Really love that synth, especially considering a real one which will produce similar sounds is really expensive. I do have some other synths, like Synth1, which is free, and Basslines for the bass of course. But Diva still kills it. Found some Stranger Things presets after I did the cover too, which would have saved me some time, but hey, since when are presets any fun? Do you know of any other synth vst's i should be trying?
    And the synth world is definitely fun, and for me a world unknown in a way too., I mean i don't even have a MIDI keyboard yet! Any recommendations btw?
    Slightly dissapointed we don't have a dedicated section on ss.org for synths, or even any other instrument then guitar/bass/drums though!
