JWM - "The Shrine" Ambient created in Korg Gadget 2

This is "The Shrine". I crafted this Ambient piece to show how versatile Gadget 2 is. I used nothing but the gadgets that already come with the basic purchase, no IAPs, no external compatible apps (although I did master the piece in Cubasis 3 with AUv3 plugins, but more on that in a bit). To further break this down...
-The main evolving drone is Kiev, which is basically an amazing soundscape synth with a nice selection of sounds. It utilises vector synthesis to evolve slowly over time.
-The deep bass drone is Dublin, a wicked semi-modular synth. While I didn't use any modulation this time around, I did use two triangle waves slightly detuned so the bass would flow out and in.
-The ostinato synth bass is Wolfsburg, a fantastic all-rounder subtractive synth. I used the "ensemble" effect to get that crunchy "supersaw" feel.
-Finally, I used Marseille for the Shamisen. Marseille is a decent rompler with a nice selection of sounds to choose from.
So I couldn't resist giving this piece some "sauce" in Cubasis 3. (Didn't feel like running it through AUM to be honest, lol.) I mastered it with RX950, MagicDeathEyeStereo, Pitch Drift for a bit of wobble, Lo-Fi-AF for vinyl crackle and a bit of flux and press, and Barricade set to around -14LuFS to bring it all together. Of course I used Youlean's Loudness Meter in order to ensure I got the levels exactly right (it's the only loudness meter I trust, lol).
Cheers and enjoy!
