    @Swatosj it's debatable if Daft Punk can be considered Synthwave in style. It's more of a hybrid if you will.

    I get your point but that particular solo synth in this track is associated with the synthwave genre in my head ahah

    I guess I'll go for some ARP, much reverb and some beers, will post it here asap

    It's important to do it your way, how you feel like it because most will try copying others.

    So, before I really get into this - can someone tell me if my attached mp3 below fits within Synthwave? I'm not too familiar.

    I'm no expert but I think it fits a 80s electronic genre.

    You should work more on the rhythm, some hit hats and vocal parts are out of place.

    Guys, please don't forget to screenshot your file in the digital audio workstation (music making program/software).

    I worked up a little somethin' for this. Haven't made a synthwave song before, so it's new territory for me.

    The song is a good ways in, but I still don't feel fully satisfied with several elements of it. So this will be my WIP.

    Here my tune + the screenshot. It came out a little bit to clean for my taste. Still had fun making it :)

    You could show us the project info with the started date and your name since you're using FL Studio like most or everyone here.

    Take this as my final entry if i don't make any updates.
    And now the proof :
    upload_2019-7-15_12-32-46.png

    Synthtide, the music where it transitions slightly into more and more present sounds and styles. A very fast paced track inspired from new wave & electro. Complex as usual you may noticed already. Thehehehe
