Thanks, Paul.  I did it last night under the worst of conditions - rather irritated with a mother-in-law in the house whom I thought would never go away.  The musical juices were not happy, but I managed to sneak a quick little piece in.

Hence the melancholy?  ;D

Is that all it was?  Huh, I thought it was despair.  It's a good thing my little music room is down in the basement, where I can hide!

Yes, towards the latter third, there was also lots of despair despite nicely interwoven pads.  ;)

That must have been the instant it occurred to me that she might be spending the night.  It made me immediately reach for the modulation wheel and open up the filter.

Here's my latest synth composition, called 'The Storm'. It's 100% synth!
I finished putting this together not too long before I left for my trip on Japan-- so I've been too busy to post too much about it. Details are in the video description :)

I always struggle with that, actually! I really love creating sounds with my modular for various projects-- a lot of which aren't 'music' in the traditional sense. Likewise, within this type of music, I'm always trying to add various special effects that are distinctly not musical, but somehow fit in. While all of the parameters are available on a modular, it is easy to create set-it-and-forget-it style patches, whether played on a keyboard or sequenced. In future projects, I really want to start making use of foot pedals and pitch bend/mod wheels in all of my sounds to help add more of a human feel to my patches.

Anyways, here's more new music:

While I (mostly) recorded one track at a time, all of the stuff besides the pads that create the chord patterns was improvised. I actually used the Tempest as a synth on a lot of these tracks. It's quite a departure from what I normally do.

This is actually an odd one for me to post, in that it's a track that sounds nothing like anything I've otherwise done. It's a bit of a piss-take on life as an ex-pat in Berlin. And for what it's worth, I've never been clubbing in my life! The video features Pro One and MS-20m, but honestly, I think at least half the tracks here are VST. There's probably a fair bit of Doepfer DE and the second solo is Novation X-Station (the first solo is M-Tron). This came out as a 7" on Beehive Sound and then on my Antronica CD. However unlike me it sounds, I suppose it sounds as much like me as anything, and I hope you enjoy!

Steven,  The bass guitar sounds ~ 5:00 are very convincing.

I assume you're talking about Swells-- in which case I did play a fretless jazz bass on my of the tracks, including the one that is playing at 5:00 ;).

If I had to make that sound with a synthesizer, it would require some digital oscillators with linear FM (like the DX7) but with more randomization like that available in Eurorack via noise etc. I suspect something close could be done with an Akemi's Castle!

Got it.   Some things- like cymbals, are just hard to mimic.  So,  in my particular case I just usually add the real thing.   If you ever do get the fretless sound down via synth I'd be interested in the details.  I 've always liked that sound.

Hey all - I posted on the P6 page that I just received my Prophet 6 today. This song I'm offering up is rather ridiculous, but I've been saving a space inside it for a P6 solo - nudge to 2:30 if the track isn't your bag of tea. I'd only had the Prophet maybe 30 minutes, and I'm sure I coulda toned down the solo tone a hair or three, but I'm hoping my enthusiasm for my new creature comes across... Cheers!

P.S. Micromoog bass, as well as skinny chorus riff. Juno 6 chords. Basic beat Roland R-8, fills TR707. There's a Pro One around 2:40 adding a second bass track. Can't remember what else is on or in!

Hope I'm not too piggy here, but I came up with this track last night using only P6, apart from the vocals. It was interesting using only one synth for everything. It's a quick mix here, no effects other than those inside the synth. Cheers!

Moinmoin,

not very Prophet-heavy, not even keyboard features, and I am even hard to see... But nevertheless I do like it ;-)

New song with DSI OB-6 and Nord Lead 4.

The main melody parts (i.e. last third of song) "warbly/bending keys" is a patch that  made on the Nord.  It sounded sorta oriental to me- so hence the inspiration.  The rest is OB6.  Except Gong, and drum which is Korg EMX.

Nice band, have you played together long?
