I was thrilled to hear that 1961's "The Dead One" (aka Blood Of The Zombie) was getting a proper Blu Ray release from Severin films. It's an awesome flick that showcases both the jazz scene in New Orleans as well as well as it's underground voodoo folklore....it's also the first zombie film in color!

This isn't a cover at all but it's a tribute to the voodoo style music from the film. Both the S2400 and Prophet X are synced and handling all the various percussion elements in the music. As the music progresses, more and more elements come in and I also increase the onboard distortion of the Prophet X to build up the intensity of the ritual.

For when the drums start.....he walks and kills.

Hope you enjoy!

Here is my latest song. I debated about posting it on this forum because the only Sequential parts on it are the Trigon-6 which covers the bass and the white noise (wind) at the end. The bulk of the sound is the Minimoog, Nord Stage 3, and Yamaha DX7. I do have a piano section in the middle. But it turns out I cannot figure out how to mic a grand piano, so the actual audio is from Keyscape. So that part of the video is a lie, but it shows the intent. I just canít figure out how to use microphones.

markwilkins,

I wouldn't shy away posting a song if not mostly Sequential stuff.  There's not a lot of traffic anyway and its interesting to see other instruments in action like this.

Mic'ing up a piano can be a tricky business, but here is a very quick article to get started

https://mxlmics.com/micing-a-piano/

There are loads of youtube videos etc about this. Generally speaking, using 2 microphones (or even 3) is the best way. There is no absolute way to do it, a fair bit of experimentation is required - mainly due to the room and position of the piano.

From my (fairly limited) experience of this, if you can get 2 mics on the go you will almost certainly be able to achieve a nice recording, once you figure out the best placings and distance from the piano - but the guide above is a good starting point.

Regarding using microphones generally, it can seems  bit daunting at first, but actually the general rules still apply - it's about finding the right position really for whichever room you're in and what it is you are recording. Distance makes a big difference, even a few inches - again like I say, my advice is to follow the basic principles, but experiment with it too - there's no real right or wrong as long as it sounds good in the end.

Nice tune by the way! :)

I have another new single out taken from the new album Bloody Saturnalia, it's called "A Tear In The Fold". The single is released to mark two sold out performances at the Barbican in London, taking place this Sunday, where I'll be performing my score for the 1922 film Hšxan on Prophet 5, Minimoog & Mellotron. I wrote this song in the wake of my Dad's passing. Lyrically it takes comfort from the idea that time isnít linear, and that those precious moments with loved ones are forever as present as they once were. That's my beloved Pro-One sat atop Keith Emerson's piano in the video...although it doesn't get played haha. It *is* on the recording though, along with ARP Pro Soloist, Prophets REV2 and 5, Roland Rhodes MK-80, and a lovely piano borrowed off Emma Gatrill.

This is predominately OB6, with a tad of 3rd Wave for the flutes and Arturia Drumbrute to wrap it up.

Early recording of this.  It is the video recording:
https://www.bitchute.com/video/S3FpeFLxfiUa/
I may go back in and put some bass.  I play the prohet with the drums and with the LaunchKey arp.  The Beatstep pro plays the System 1m the ARP 2600 from Aruturia is very prominent during the most part especially when I am playing the deep groove drums from Roland.  The Reface DX is playing the iPhone 5S Moog Model D and the AKAI Adv 25 is playing the Vacuum Pro and perhaps some Remastered Cassette 808 VST.  I think that's it.  The System 1m is via modular cables only and those cables coming from the Beatstep pro Sequence 1 & 2.
At this time I am planning to the bass.  I made the recording in Studio One.  If I get that done, it means I wl actually make a mp3 and probably put it on my Soundcloud.

Every so often I fire up the Modor NF1m,  and when I do I'm always impressed with the vastly different sounds one can pull out of this synth.  The formant filter parallels with the other filters to allow some nice vocal type sounds.

This is 3rd Wave, but the stringy most pad is Hydrasynth.  Towards the end you can hear the little clicky squeeky quirks to be gotten with shifting thru the wave table using programed envelopes.  The 3td Wave does a decent traditional analogue sound in addition to its digital forte.

Very nice! That is a lovely piece. Iíve been looking forward to hearing 3rd Wave examples.

My first track with the Prophet X fully repaired and back in action. I decided to pay tribute to one of my favorite Shaw Brothers films, Ghost Eyes. While Shaw Brothers are more known for their martial arts films (Five Fingers Of Death, 36th Chamber Of Shaolin etc) they did manage to dabble in some science fiction and horror (Inframan, Mighty Peeking Man etc) and Ghost Eyes is a primary example of early Asian horror that really has transcended generations of horror filmmaking in the East. Lots of the scares and even the story seem commonplace now but Ghost Eyes was from 1974.

The music for Ghost Eyes was done by Yung Yu Chen. This is not a direct cover at all but it's certainly influenced. Lots of ethnic instruments, violent string plucks and scrapes, eerie vocals, cymbal rolls and organ are all coming from the Prophet X.

Hope you enjoy!

Usually recordings I make are multitracked, but while experimenting the other day with the Moog Matriarch driven by a sequencer, I was able to roll the Hydrasynth into it too and do the tune in one take.   I've enjoyed the Moog last few weeks.  Its refreshingly back to basics.

One of my favorite horror monsters of all time is The Mummy. I absolutely loved the Universal series with Lon Chaney Jr as Kharis slowly stalking and terrorizing the defilers of his princess' tomb.

But it was Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's 1892 short story "Lot 249" which the first piece of literature to portray a re-animated mummy as dangerous. The story inspired the subgenre heavily and there were countless adaptations.

One such adaptation was a segment from Tales From The Darkside: The Movie (1990). The adaptation actually was more humorous and featured a lot of slasher-esq elements. Almost a parody of the sub genre.

The music for Tales From The Darkside: The Movie was actually composed by no less than 5 composers. One of which was Jim Manzie doing the music for the Lot 249 segment. I've spoken about Manzie in the past on my Pumpkinhead 2 and Leatherface videos.

This was approached much more as a suite rather than a specific cue. Lots of ethnic type sounds, acoustic bass from the Prophet X's library as well as some EMU samples of strings and modified PX's samples mimicking some of the sounds Manzie was using constantly on his scores (the string plucks and scrapes with chorus and delay, filtered choir sounds etc).

I think it turned out pretty good.

Hope you enjoy

Well I officially have switched my DAW to Digital Performer and I decided to do a quick track covering one of my favorite flicks, the iconic R.O.T.O.R.! ("Robotic Officer Tactical Operations Research/Reserve" )

I have absolutely no idea what David Adam Newman used but for this everything is done in a single take with the ISLA S2400 and Prophet X.

The S2400 is actually doing most of the work here. All the sounds you hear from it are from the factory sample kits and sounds. The synth sounds and kalimba samples are from @Fluxwithit and the drums are from @AlexBallMusic . The S2400 is also sequencing the Prophet X which is doing an emulation of the choir patch from the Prophet VS (using the onboard VS waves).

Now with the Prophet X being officially discontinued, I'm more determined than ever to keep pumping out videos showing just how incredible this synth is. My favorite synth of all time.

Anyway I hope you enjoy!

VC340 strings and Prophet 5 doing the descending melody.

Pro One is the Bass.

Doepfer Dark Energy, the synth that brought me back to analogue back when, plays the ascending line. Love that synth!

TR-8S for drums.

The vocals are me trying out Melodyne as instant-harmony generator.

Samples include Laratron, Donneye and Himself.

It's been a trying week. Lost my job and had to say goodbye to my family dog. I've been in a lot of mental pain recently and I wanted to do a track that really expresses that. Something far different than what I'm used to doing on this channel.

The Prophet X is doing the guitar, bass and unnerving sound effects as well as atmospheric choir.

The S2400 is handling all the drums and percussion as well as sequencing the Prophet X while in song mode.

Hope you enjoy.
