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. :)

My music is going through something of a change lately. I’m trying to draw in my wilder wandering. This track is a wild one though. Largely made in iOS, with Sampler, Auria etc. Prophet 6 in the background of course. Hoping to do better/more soon. https://man-oeuvre.bandcamp.com/album/the-kismet-circuitry

Further exploring the user sampling feature of my Sequential Prophet X. Had a bit of a rough week and I've been on a big Mindhunter binge on Netflix.

The samples are taken from the excellent documentary "The Killing Of America" with an interview with serial killer Ed Kemper. You can hear me mangling the samples with LFOs, pan spread, arpeggiators, loop size manipulation, as well as some bit reduction through the entire piece.

The Prophet 6 is doing a heavy drone with an LFO modulating the low pass filter. .

The Tempest is doing an 808 beat with some analog distortion on it to give a nice gritty sound.

Enjoy! Please check out Severin Film's release for The Killing Of America https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dsa7F...

Very quick track I did tonight on the Prophet-X. I've been listening to a lot of scores recently from Christopher Young (Hellraiser, Species, Dorm That Dripped Blood, Def-Con 4, The Power) and I decided to do a quick track in his style. I noticed that, despite not using any synths Young focuses a lot of ambience and atmosphere conveyed. His score for Def-Con 4 showcases this and I wanted to try my hand at something a bit more "Freestyle" with not a whole lot of traditional structure. I used a lot of "Ambience" and "Cinematic" samples from the Sequential Prophet X for this piece as well as some Brass, Flute and String effects. Ironically the PX even has a category in the Cinematic section called "Def-Con"...I couldn't resist using a sample of it at the end. ENJOY!

Hi there!

So after a couple years off, I am back to releasing my own original music again. I quit DJing and nightlife after 20 years of doing it all professionally, from playing to throwing parties and everything in between. So this is me just having fun, no pressure to please promoters, bookers, managers, agents, random people half my age at the party  ::)

Deep house, broken beat kinda thing on the first EP, but there’s a whole lot of other stuff coming up from ambient to weird drummy techno, synth patches, sample packs, art prints… Just gonna have me some good ol’ fashioned fun.

https://allandbyallo.bandcamp.com/album/rule-of-thirds

And it’s my first time using gear on a release. I only got into hardware rather recently, so this is also me validating the investments! ;D This stuff features the Rev2 and the Moog Sirin.

I decided to create a SoundCloud playlist to contain anything I do that includes my Rev2:

So far it's only got three short pieces done for the Disquiet Junto, but there will be more coming very soon.

This is an odd one for me in that no Sequential products here harmed in the making of this track.  :-)

My friend wrote the song and came with bassline, vocals, and chord progressions. I added drum programming (Elektron Rytm mkII), guitar (custom Jazzmaster and Kemper), and synth (Peak) And did the recording:

I really like the feel of the chorus that starts around 1:30. Proud of my synth addition.

In contrast, this one is nearly all Sequential. All the synth is Pro 2, the darker distorted drums are Tempest. The 808 groove is actually the Avid Venom!

I took an audio sample from YouTube where a user had fed the text from a Bladerunner 2049 book into to a text to speech program. The text is an expanded version written by Gosling of the baseline test - which I find fascinating.

I think it would be good for a set opener.

I couldn't resist calling my "ambient" generative new album "Music for Dentists", as the idea came to me while sitting in the waiting room of my dentist a few months ago.

http://gezz1.bandcamp.com/album/music-for-dentists

Featuring on track 1 the Prophet Rev2 with a twinkle of Digitone and Deepmind 12. On track 2 Prophet Rev2 plus Digitone. Sequencing from the Schrittmacher, running several loops with different speeds, rarely repeating themselves.

This is also my first attempt using Bandcamp ...... Enjoy ;-)
Prophet X, Prophet Rev2 and Evolver desktop, Waldorf Blofeld, Roland System-1, Nord Rack 2, Akai S5000, Dato DUO, Elektron Digitone, Deepmind12D, Schrittmacher, Bitwig v3. Daw-less...

I'm looking at selling my Moog Sub 37. It's just not getting as much love as it should and I decided to do at least three tracks over the next few weeks with it as a primary instrument.  First up we have a Ivor Slaney's awesome synthesizer score for the Canadian cult flick DEATHSHIP.

Ivor Slaney was actually a classically trained composer and recorded many classical and jazz pieces through his prolific career with his later years dabbling in experimental funk jazz and synthscapes. Highly recommend checking out his score for "Terror" and "Prey" as well.     

The Moog Sub 37 is doing everything here except the drums. The brassy lead, Theremin lead, low drones as well as some unnerving sound effects. Everything is run through loads of reverb with some slap back delay in some eras.     

The Tempest is doing a steady military beat on a Boss DR55 Sample Kit.     

ENJOY!!!!

Hey all - here's a fresh video, a slice of my Berlin, for a song due next year on an album called Manbird. Unusually for me, this features no Sequential/DSI action, and despite the DX7 featured on film, this was tracked entirely with a Korg Prologue. (There's a touch of M-Tron on here - maybe it's real Mellotron, I honestly can't remember!!) Anyway, one thing I love about the Prologue is that is can get those yowling Korg MS sounds. This song, inspired by and filmed in my beloved Neukolln, is scratchy and messy to suit. Hope you enjoy!

Finally a piece from a series of movies I know, because horror movies are not my favorite genre ;-) I've been waiting for you to do a tribute on the halloween soundtrack since I'm following this thread ;-)

I am in the process of writing my first song.  I am using this opportunity as a means of reinforcing what I am learning about my instrument, music theory, as well as Cubase.  I am finding this intimidating as I am struggling to put what is in my head into music.

But it is a great way to learn.

Ha! I figured it was the right day to do it. Lol truth be told I think the score for Halloween iii is the best....I actually think it’s the best film of the series as well...I’m not a huge fan of the Michael Myers story or character.
