The Future Starts With You

I was listening to the Portal 2 OST when I decided to see if I could recreate some of the synths from "The Future Starts With You". Yeah, I was bored.
Anyway I got carried away and ended up reconstructing the entire track completely from scratch.
Here's the original for reference:

And here's my remake:


I pretty much nailed the arrangement, and if you listen apart from the obvious differences in sound design (the seemingly simple synths used are actually insanely detailed, so it was pretty much impossible to get them to sound 100% alike), the only real way you can tell the two apart is in the mixing. Because I couldn't be arsed mixing it, I'm tired.

But yeah, I thought that was pretty interesting.

It's good, the original had the extra reverb, which, in game made it very atmospheric, as where this one feels more like a song.

You'd be surprised at how difficult it is to get reverb sounding that precise, and plus the majority of it is just a long release time as opposed to reverb.

I think the original has some overtone trickery that yours is lacking. It's actually some kind of harmonic sequence thing.

Also the middle note in the "triads" of yours are hella sharp.
