Arpeggiator/Sequencer party! I was at the studio this weekend and decided to record a few tunes. John Carpenter and Alan Howarth's score for Big Trouble In Little China is easily one of the best synth scores out there and it features probably the greatest synth setup in history. I decided to do a small tribute using the synths I have. Not a direct cover but there's certainly some motifs and riffs from the amazing score.

Sequential Prophet X Sampler-Slap bass, Middle Eastern percussion, Mandolin and Glass Marimba samples as well as some string, choir, Prophet VS and ethnic instrument overdubs.

Prophet 6-Some filtered pad sounds at the beginning, the iconic "rising brass" stab and some low arpeggiation.

Tempest-Lots of frantic percussion using the built in arpeggiator with both the LM-1 and Linn Drum Samples

It's all in the reflexes. :)

Big shout out to Chris Alexander who's been posting about the surrealist 1986 horror flick "Nomads" and inspired me to do this track. The score for that film was done by Bill Conti and features nonother than Ted Nugent on guitar!

This is not a cover of that score but it certainly is heavily influenced by it.

Sequential Prophet X is doing some atmospheric droning ambiences (Done with a looping sample of an Electric Guitar as well as some Sunn O))) style feedback drones as well as some piccolo flute effects and Prophet VS wavetables blending in and out of each other)

My American Fender Strat is being run through the Roger Linn Adrenelinn iii Guitar Effects Pedal and has a heavy Mesa Boogie amp simulation as well as some chorus on it.

The Tempest has a "TomCart Kit" which has the samples from the expander cartridge from Sequential's old drum machine "TOM". Incredibly heavy sounds run through a gated reverb effect.

Vinyl, that'd be cool.  I wanted to do something like that just for the novelty, but it's still pretty pricy which discouraged me.   Besides, even my own turn-table doesn't work anymore, so then I'd need to buy a new one :-\

If you want to go even more underground, Remember those LP-sized laser discs?  They were very short lived, preceded CD's, but had the art work printed on them.

Laser Discs were actually for movies not music I believe I have a bunch of Abbott And Costello and Gamera movies on them.

I'd intended to post this on the P6 page in response to a question about the 6's sequencer, thinking I'd built up this whole track with a layering of sequences. When I opened up the PT file, I was surprised to see that much of the track appears to have been played by hand. The song is 4 chords, repeated, with no variation, so the sequencer would've made sense. This was a quick and early take, intended for a singer in Oxford, hence it being a bit out of my vocal range at points. Nothing came of this track, but it's a really lovely presentation of the P6, at least. There's a hint of Evolver in as well, looks like.

EDIT: Turns out that indeed much of this recording is based on P6 sequences - two different versions of the chord loop, one quite hazy, the other quite pretty and bell-ish. The bits that don't repeat, or are a bit finger-flubbed were recorded "live" after the fact.

All week I've been listening to some really obscure soundtracks from cult films like Hide And Go Shriek, The Lamp, and others and decided to try my hand at doing my take on the score for Hell High (aka Raging Fury). Although made in 1984, it wasn't released until 1989.  Not sure what gear Rich Macar  and Chris Hyams-Hart used by I decided to work with a fairly simple setup and have a much more electric guitar oriented score than the original (which sort of fits in with the "high school punk" type vibe).

Anyway the gear breakdown is.

American Fender Stratocaster running through the Roger Linn Adrenalinn III Guitar Effects Box. I wanted to use one of Roger's own amp creations so I went with the RLD Sizzle Preset.

Prophet-6 is doing everything from strings, sequenced bass, synth choir and synth clavinet. I used some of the original Prophet-5 patches on here.

Prophet-X is only used for the upright piano at the beginning and end (I used the "Bar Piano" preset)

Tempest Drum Computer is doing a heavy metal type beat with frantic kick drums on a "Tom Cart Kit".

Enjoy and remember...stay in school kids. :)
