The main point of this exercise was to independently configure Bitwig's Polysynth after watching a tutorial video and reading some advice about how to beef up the sound on a synthesizer. I liked the results and hope to use this synth configuration in a more sophisticated composition.

While I'd count this as a sound design victory, not much went into the musicality—the synth drives a bland chord progression (only fifths). The chords I sequenced were little more than a means of testing the synth sound, but I did end up adding more. I sequenced some drums from an 808 kit and toyed with an arpeggiated melody.
