I like challenges, and love synthesis, so , this contest was perfect for me :)

I have been having some rough times these months, and didn't had my computer with me this month, so I borrowed my dad's laptop to enter, I couldn't use ubuntu on it, and had lot's of problems. So I ended up using Ableton Live Trial (fully functional for a month) in windows, and relying on the build-in Effects (which are pretty good).

The only FOSS software used would be the synths (JuceOPL, Dexed & OxeFM)... which maybe isn't completely in the spirit of the contest, but I tried my best :) Enjoy!.
