Hey all - I've come up with a small tribute to Dave Smith. Musically, it's a modest thing, but the sound of his epic synths is what I hoped to put on display.

Prophet 5 for the main theme. Prophet 6, Pro One and Drumtraks come in next, followed by Evolver with P6. It concludes where it started. Again, as a piece of music, it's small, but I hope I've conveyed my appreciation for the impact Dave Smith has had on my life. All best thoughts to his family and friends and his colleagues at Sequential.

I like this short piece very much. It gives some "everything said" vibes to me.

Thanks, jok3r. I never met Dave, but there was something so warm about his presence, and so bright about his energy. Even only knowing him through interviews etc, he seemed like he was always very "in the room," if that makes sense. I'm surrounded by gear he created, gear I use every day, so I guess he's still in the room, in a way!

Didn't get a chance to do a Night Owl Review this week (It's blistering hot so I have the Air Conditioner cranked to make sure the dogs are okay inside the apartment...which means the sound isn't optimal) so I went back into some tracks I recorded a while ago and decided to do a video on them.

One of my favorite directors is Don Dohler. There's something really genuine about someone making monster movies in their backyard for no money, on weekends with friends. Especially at a time when shooting on actual film was standard and any kind of distribution was a pipe dream for such project. Dohler found a way to get such awesome flicks out there such as Galaxy Invader, Fiend and of course...Night Beast.

Dohler also was willing to take a chance on younger talent to help him with his films and one of those younger talents was none other than J.J. Abrams. Yes. THAT J.J. Abrams! Believe it or not Abrams is a synth enthusiast (He's actually on Sequential's artist roster) and, with the help of Rob Walsh (Revenge Of The Ninja) he ended up doing a fantastic synth score for the film.

I have no idea what Abrams used but for this track I limited myself to only the Tempest and Prophet 6.

The Prophet 6 is doing the low bass/pad line as well as some faux string machine sounds and windy special FX sounds.

The Tempest is not only doing a repetitive hi-hat rhythm (done on an 808 Kit) but also the main sequenced melody, done using the onboard analog oscillators.

I hope you enjoy!!

P.S. I really wish Abrams would score more films....especially synth scores...the score for the film is a lot of fun and really adds to the picture.

I'm posting something that's meant as a sales-pitch, I admit, but I think that for the folks of the forum, it'll read mostly as a mess of "Huh???" This is a cut'n'paste take on my forthcoming album, presented in sound collage mode. My wife thought it worked well as a piece unto itself, hence my posting it here. I've zero idea if this will lead to millions and billions of record sales, but it's hopefully an amusing sonic joyride for a few Heads!

Just a quick cover of the main theme for one of my favorite films: David Durston's "I Drink Your Blood".

The Prophet X is doing just the timpani drums.
The Prophet 6 is doing the distorted mono synth
Fender Stratocaster running into the Roger Linn Adrenelinn iii effects box with an auto wah and delay effect on it.

All the implements necessary to make this incredibly simple theme, incredibly effective.

Hope you enjoy!

Here's something from my next record. I must confess, I barely played keyboards on this one - the Mellotron, Farfisa, piano and Moog are all courtesy of my mate Sir Thomas Hughes. He's a monstrous, magical player. He used to play with Nektar for a bit of a while. Anyway, I did add some white noise from my Juno 6's chorus and I probably played a note or two of synth. Otherwise, I'm on bass and guitars this time. Still, it might be an amusing diversion for a few of ye peeps.
I hope you enjoy the song.

Manbird , this sounds right to what I consider your retro roots.  Really liked when the ultra distortion guitar comes in.

I used the Behringer 2600 and Vermona MK2 synthesizers to make this. DSI P12 used as a controller with an arpeggiator for main track. Most of the song is just two tracks simultaneous. The 2600 was set in Duo mode (paraphonic)and provides much of the main theme, portamento "pads" and deep bass parts. The Vermona was set to 4 alternating voices so that each osc is set slightly different and thus occasionally fm each other- as heard in the "voicey" parts.

Nice - and weird! I'm always a fan of weird. Your piece sits on the edge of "something I can't quite put my finger on" and the slight dissonance is appealing.

I just recorded a very sloppy moment/minute of "Summertime" that I kinda like.
The electric Piano is a Kurzweil, the lead is the Pro3.

(2.3 meg mp3)

Cheers
(Yea, I'm looking into signing up for Bandcamp. - Anybody have any feedback on them, or a better idea?)

Yes.  A Bandcamp account is easy to set up, it works as it's supposed to, and you can actually earn money from home if you can somehow get the word out about your music.  As always, the key is advertising.

Bandcamp has been really good for me. I release at least one album per year, and Bandcamp makes for a reliable outlet. I've also been uploading older items from my back catalog, offering bundled deals etc. I'm not the finest businessman in the candy store, but Bandcamp is something I've been able to manage with relative ease.

Here are two songs I helped out with, but they're not mine. The act is called Mystery Fix. Most of the music is done with Soma Pulsar, if I'm not mistaken. I was hired to write lyrics and sing. I really enjoyed this collaboration and imagine a few of the peeps here will like the songs...
