Kicking off my new year with something "normal" (i.e. not microtonal). It's a tribute to a classical composer that influenced my musical taste back when I was (much!) younger: Dmitry Kabalevsky.

The following is the result of some improvisation on his op39 no22 "Novelette", played live on a rev2:

Wonderful.

One of my all time favorite films is Richard Stanley's Hardware. A punk rock, visually stunning, industrial nightmare. The score was done by none other than Simon Boswell who, in line with the cybernetic feel of the film, sequenced the entire score on an Apple 2E with a Greengate Sampler software. I attempted to recreate the same feel with the Sequential Prophet X sampler.

Dark synth pad driven landscapes with sweeping melancholy strings and some bluesy slide guitar go on for what seems like forever...until you meet the Mark 13 at the end.

And now for something completely different...

Inspired by the Jerry Goldsmith score for The Mephisto Waltz, I wanted to use the Prophet-X in a more classical oriented score using only the amazing piano and string samples from 8Dio. I synced all the sequences from my DAW (Studio One) and used the onboard effects, sequencer and features of the PX.

Greetings fellow DSI/Sequential enthusiasts.  I've spent a lot of time this week listening to many of the great songs here and have decided to add a couple of tracks to this massive online mix tape.  Both feature original Prophet 12 and Prophet X sounds with an Analog Rytm and Analog Four playing supporting roles.  I hope you enjoy them.

The whole track is done in one take on the Sequential Prophet X.

"When you have spent your life like a fortune that never seemed to end.
A second chance will come like a long lost friend.
Great joy will fill you and flush you hot.
No more will you ever be cool
for she is the Devil's honey pot.
And you'll drown in her you fool."

It's been ages since I posted here, and honestly, I've lost a bit of track which of my older tunes I've shared, but pretty sure this ain't one of 'em. This was me at age 19, in the basement, with a P5 (rev2, I found out long after the synth had died) and PolySix, amongst. TR-707 drums. Recorded on a 4-track cassette, every inch of tape crammed with sound. Unlike some of the other teenage Ant tracks that were released on Antronica 2, this one features my original angsty vocals. Only way to sound like a teenager is to be one, I guess! Hope you enjoy!

Wow. How many times did you bounce tracks to fit all that onto that machine!?!

Very enjoyable.

Glad you liked it. I just checked the transferred tracks in Pro Tools, and sounds like track 1 is main keyboard (P5), plus TR-707, PolySix strings and... maybe that's it. Bit murky in there! Track 2 says "piano/bass," so that's acoustic piano and some synth (P5? Pro One? MS-10?) doing long note bass. There's also PolySix choir on that track. I assume I must've played either the bass or choir part while bouncing. There are two vocal tracks, but they also have all sorts of stuff going on in the spaces where I'm not singing - there's a "guitar solo" played on a Casio SK-1, another PolySix doing a sort of Ultravox thingy, a snare drum track and sound fx. It's a shame the tapes themselves didn't hold up so well - in Pro Tools I can hear how much they've degraded, but back in the day these tracks were pretty clean, considering the format.

One of my all time favorite synth composers is the highly underrated Carlo Maria Cordio. While this isn't directly a cover of his score for the film Body Puzzle (aka Misteria) it is heavily influenced by it.

There's no sequencing or arpeggiating whatsoever here. The acoustic guitar and reversed piano strikes are simply looped and playing back at different speeds.

No overdubs at all. Everything is played in real time in a split patch on the Sequential Prophet X. On the upper half the melody is played by a Prophet VS wave layered with a choir. The choir is having it's sample size stretched and shrunk by an LFO creating a "glitch" type effect.

This is an original piece I recorded last week and I'm really proud of it. It's something completely different. I've always been a big fan of combining dark synth music with slow jazz. Here I brought out my trusty Prophet 6 and the ever versatile Prophet X. The PX is doing the drums as well as the Wurlitzer for the main them as well as the saxophone solo. The Prophet 6 is doing some vintage sounding brass/pads. I think it fits very well. Hope you enjoy.

An original piece as a tribute to one of my all time favorite films. Seriously, The Manster is downright creepy! Absolutely love it. There's no overdubs or sequencing at all here. The low brass and Taiko drums (since the film is set in Japan) are simply looped with the loop speed being modulated by an LFO. On the upper half of the synth is an organ as well as a faux theremin (Which is a MUST for 50's monster flicks) and there's also some menacing trumpet effects as well.
Hope you enjoy!

Unleashing my inner church organist (who'd have thought?!).

I'm taking some medieval chant (which normally consists of only monophonic human voice)
and serve it with creamy REV2 sauce:

This is a great example of what a difference a rearrangement makes and a nice juxtaposition of different historical approaches to harmonics.
