O.K. (synthpop)

Started working on it this sunday and I'm really happy with it! It's a synthpop tune with some dark lyrics and 80s influenced sounds. Hope you like it! Feel free to comment :)

Moving to Sydney soon!

G'day fellow synth explorers! Right now I hold my Working Holiday visa application form in my hand as I'm moving to Sydney in a few months (if everything goes as planned)! I've never been there to be honest, but I'm really sick and tired of cold, dull and grey Sweden. Now I want to know everything a...

I'm wondering how that works sending the output back in... I have to get some sort of splitter? Thats the only way? That's ONE way of doing it, but the best way is to just connect the synth to a mixer and route one of the effect sends to the external input of the CS-10. This way, changing the EQ se...

I put my Ibanez Stereo Chorus pedal in the feedback chain once - pretty cool effect, but not that useful. However, putting a distortion pedal in the feedback chain is REALLY cool. I used this setup several times when recording using my Tube Screamer TS-9 pedal. Delay effects are also cool, especiall...

Those who've heard my rant about my CS-10's before know that I'm probably the biggest fan of the CS-10. I've had two, sold the first one and regretted it 2 hours later - bought a new one and had to get rid of it later on to afford building an ASM2-Wizard. Now, I'd love to own one again, but consider...

Yamaha CS-10/15 for sure! They're snappy, yet bass heavy.
The Pro One might be up your alley too, it depends on which type of bass sound you're after

There's the classic noise generating patch setup: patch the Signal out/Phones --> ESP signal in. Now patch the different outputs of the ESP to the VCOs' and the VCFs' FM inputs. The Freq-to-Volt converter is my favourite. Plug its output to the VCO's FM input and let the synth's output control the o...

Wavestation/JD-800 movie soundtrack improvisation

I recorded an improvisation the other day and thought I'd share it with you. It's sort of like a sci-fi movie soundtrack (Blade Runner-ish I guess :wink:). What I used recording this track: Korg Legacy Collection Wavestation and Roland JD-800 (both controlled from the JD-800's keyboard) recorded ont...

Had a Bit One a while back and I hated it. The filters broke one after another, programming was tedious and it didn't sound as good as a Juno. And the MIDI implementation is a joke, it would've been better if they leaved it out so people didn't have to suffer trying to get it to work properly. Got a...

I have access to some of the Waves plugins through my school, so I used an RVox and a DeEsser on the vocals. Other than that it's mostly just some EQ and Korg MDE-X

No Juno-60 in this one..
Synths used: only software (in your face! :D) - Synth1, homemade softsynths and some drum samples I tweaked

Wow, thanks for all your nice words! :) I used a cheap-ass JJLabs C010B condenser mic and preamp'ed the signal through a JJLabs mixer and cut some bass and treble. In the DAW I did some further EQing (cut some bass and added a little crisp at the top), added a compressor and a de-esser. Then some au...

I seem to remember Nik Kershaw using it live for "Wouldn't it be good". He was giving the modulation button a good going! :) I love the LFO trig button on the 60! When I sold mine and started playing my JD-800 again I was trying to introduce modulation by pressing the buttons on the left side of th...
