The Perseverance Rover recoded wind noise on the surface a few days after touching down on the red planet. I took those wave forms (mostly irregular sine waves) and imported them to the Summit synthesizer. This song uses ONLY those wave forms generated 155 million miles away using two unique patches. The intent is to capture both the wispy and rumble character of the Martian wind.
The original sound may be found on Soundcloud via NASA- "first audio recording of sounds on mars".

Mars has a lovely hollow flutey tone.  Very nice music, Soundquest.

The 1954 film "THEM" is one of my all time favorite films. I decided to do an ambient tribute to it with the Prophet X. Everything you hear is done 100% in real time and with user samples. I wanted to give the feeling of what the world would sound like if THEY won the battle. Windy desolate landscapes and seemingly endless hoards of chirping atomic monstrosities. One of the PX's oscillators drones to add to the brooding atmosphere.

Enjoy!

Something that has always puzzled me is why Sequential has never created a sample pack for the Prophet X using the original factory samples from the Prophet 2000 sampler from the 80s. Well a wonderful Prophet 2000 user group has graciously shared some of these samples and I've imported them into my PX and decided to create a piece with them (maybe even a few pieces).

Inspired by Severin film's release of awesome 80s action flicks Strike Commando, Strike Commando 2 and Invaders Of The Lost Gold I wanted to do piece influenced by the pumping synth soundtracks of these type of films. Deadly Prey, The Last Hunter, White Ghost etc.

Prophet X is using samples that are all from the Prophet 2000 factory discs. Strings, Sax, Choir, orchestral loops and hits, and Rock guitar.

The Prophet 6 is doing some sinister filter brass swells at the beginning "prologue" as well as the frantic, high resonant arpeggio with loads of pan spread. All with the "Vintage" mode engaged at about 70%.

The Tempest is doing a pumping beat on a Linn Drum kit with the snare being run through one of the voice outs through a large reverb.

Enjoy!!!

Hello fellow synth fiends. Here's a song of mine I wrote and first recorded in 1986. Yow! For no clear reason, I've done a remake, keeping as close to the original 4-track version as possible, using much the same gear. The Prophet 5 for bass and main chords. Korg PolySix is the murky "choir." My TR-707 lives in Berlin, so I made do here with 707 samples for the drum track. There's a riff on the 2nd and 3rd choruses played on Moog Grandmother that's new to the song, but really, it sounds and feels not much unlike my original teen track, only cleaner and slightly more in tune! Hope you enjoy it.

This week I wanted to again try to do a track with the Tempest as my main driving force. All of the drums and synth sounds you hear are completely done in real time with the Tempest. The only overdubs are the Strat run through a Roger Linn Andrenelinn iii Guitar Effects Box.

I absolutely love the film The Soultangler. It's almost like a cheap, very cheap, version of Re-Animator. I couldn't help but give this track a rocking cheezy feel.

Anton Lupesky hopes you enjoy!!!

Much like my old Impetigo-Maggots tribute, I wanted to try and pay a synth tribute to another of my favorite Death Metal bands: Lord Gore. Instead of doing a cover of their music I decided to create a "Soundtrack" type piece for one of their songs. I was heavily inspired by the soundtracks one might find in one of those Straight To Video 80s gory monster flicks like The Abomination or The Suckling. I always loved Lord Gore's lyrics so I couldn't resist doing a spoken word variation on this track.

INSTRUMENTS USED

Sequential Prophet X-Sewer gurgling, heartbeat, grunts and roars (taken from the Green Gargantua from War Of The Gargantuas), and upright piano.

Prophet 6-slurping filter sweeps and main heavy brass line with the "vintage mode" on everything.

Enjoy!

With Unearthed Films announcement for their future Blu Ray release of the awesome Evil Dead Trap (1987). I decided to pay a little tribute to the really catchy synth score by Tomohiko Kira. I have no idea what he used on the original but it certainly sounds digital so I wanted to recreate that here.

The Prophet X is only doing the low fi Fairlight Sararr sample (user import). The rest of the track is all Tempest including the main sequenced melody done using the onboard Prophet VS wavetable in the Tempest. An on board Linn Drum "kit" provides the steady beat.

Enjoy!

This is something I've wanted to do for a while. An original soundtrack to an imaginary film...the entire soundtrack with multiple cues and stingers. There are some pieces that are repeated with different variations to give a sense of themes for each characters/settings/moods.

Heavily inspired by a late 80s/early 90s direct to video slasher flicks like Edge Of The Axe, Deadly Manor and others. I wanted everything to be very digital sounding. A group of teens visit an isolated house in the woods and are stalked by an axe wielding killer.

Prophet X-I used the onboard Prophet VS samples and patches (Wavetable E.P., Wavestrummer, Poly VS etc) as well as my newly imported Prophet 2000 samples
-Slap bass
-Rock Guitar
-Choir
-Strings
-Orchestral Hit
-"Junk Beats" Hip Hop Beat Loop

Alesis Multipads-Heavy percussion/Phil Collins-esq tom rolls, and even some Blade Runner style synth pads.

Tempest-909 Kit beats with a voice out on the snare or clap going through a large reverb.

The title is inspired by the Blood Freak track of the same name. The lyrics reference imaginary characters so I wanted to use them here as well.

I know this is a long one but I hope you enjoy it and close your eyes while listening and watch the wonderful story unfold in your imagination.

Lobo Loves,   With this genera you could probably do a soundtrack to a real movie versus just an "imaginary movie".    Not sure how one goes about getting into that field.  I only spot listened, but the parts I heard were good for the format.

Really excited to finally be able to share this. It's the new video we've made for a song from my Manbird album, and besides the Prophet 6 used on the track (bass, lead and a bit of brass), the video itself is a synth-geek dream/nightmare. You'll see me as new wave teenage boy playing PolySix in my first band, the Fabian Society. And my prize for "Best Keyboardist" in the battle of the bands we'd entered was a Korg MS-10, also featured in the vid. I still have both Korgs and use them frequently.

(One more synth geek note... in the VHS footage of me onstage, I've got a pic of Billy Currie from Ultravox duct-taped to my teen trench coat!)

Thank you. I've actually scored a few films already. i plan on doing more of these Soundtrack Albums soon in different genres.

As you know, my all time favorite composer is Les Baxter. The versatility the man had with his musical output was incredible. His score for FROGS is no exception. Ditching his traditional jazz scores and orchestral pieces, Baxter decides to go "FULL BRAIN ENO" and run real sounds of frogs and swamp sounds through his synthesizer.

For this tribute I took a user sample of swamp sounds I imported into my Prophet X and ran them into the ring modulator and massive Spring reverb effects with LFOs controlling the mix amount of both. I also incorporated some unnerving sample and hold style noises as well.

Very simple but very effective.

Hope you enjoy

"Ring-moding frogs"  well,  that's different.   In that same vein of using nature sounds...I 'm deciding just how I will be making use of the 17 year cicadas that are due to erupt into their song in Ohio within a few weeks.

I've been on the East Coast twice during the cicada's reign of audio terror. Brian Eno's "cricket menace" ain't got nothing on that sound you've got coming up! That said, from all reports, sounds like you might want to order a Strega and quick!

Bloodeaters aka Toxic Zombies aka Bloodeaters: Butchers of the Damned aka The Dromax Derangement aka Forest of Fear is finally getting a proper blu ray release from the good folks at Massacre Video. I wanted to do a quick tribute to the film and it's soundtrack by Ted Shapiro. Given the year, Shapiro likely used a Minimoog or ARP Odyssey for his synth parts. Nothing fancy here, just the PX doing a repetitive upright piano motif while the Prophet 6 does some monophonic synth lines.

Enjoy!
