"O Come All Ye Faithful" has the most traditional opening of any song on the album. It’s a bit of a synth fanfare. Then it hits the dancey section. In many songs on the album I experimented with synths that had formant filters–elements in the synth that cause it to sound a bit like a human singer. On this song, I spent a lot of time twisting knobs on the singing synth to get it to sound more human, but still synthesized. It took a while to get the arpeggiated melody just right in the second half of the song, but at the end of the day, it sounds pretty cool. The bass on this song is quite playful. This is one of the earlier songs, and definitely conforms to my original goal of “synth and variations”.
