I say virtual self but really im more trying to emulate the music he was inspired by. Songs like Lapis and Sepia are more what I am trying to go for. I may not even have the right genre because I wasn't actively listening to this type of music in its peak.

I got into making this music around 2 weeks ago and it seemed fairly simple in the beginning but at this point I can't seem to make anything that has the same sound or vibe as stuff like Shiki. I can't seem to find any tutorials (besides the 2 virtual self tutorials out there) and every time I try to use trance presets it never comes out right. I know this post is suuuper vague but if anyone has experience in this genre I'd appreciate the help.

edit: guess nobody knows
