Re: Encounter (80s inspired, spacey)

Tangerine Dream: The Lost Miami Vice Recordings.

Just kidding, but it does remind me of Jan Hammer's drums and late-80s TD. Nice work :!:

Re: Synth examples, post them here.

https://soundcloud.com/matti-juhana/alesis-andromeda-moogie So, after selling my Jupiter-6 a while back, I spent the money on an Alesis Andromeda that I received yesterday. So far, I've barely even scratched the surface, just been doing basic programming to get acquainted with the interface and sou...

First recording of Chroma Polaris. Needs a recap and some loving care. Though it sounds pretty good as it is.. Also the first time I used the iPad to interface my hardware stuff, lovin' it.

Re: Synth examples, post them here.

All sounds except drums were made with my Korg EX-800. The EX-800 is unmodified. All factory patches. Wow wow echo is from a Sony DPS-V55 effects processor.

Re: POST ANY INTERESTING EBAY / CRAIGSLIST LISTINGS HERE!!!

Yamaha TX816, full I have a TX802, and it's pretty full sounding, but I've heard that you can get super lush with a full 816. Unfortunately, I don't have a spare grand to find out. $1K is about twice I usually what I see them sell for. There's one in Dallas for $700 that I can broker for you if tha...

Re: POST ANY INTERESTING EBAY / CRAIGSLIST LISTINGS HERE!!!

Complete Roland System 100 Not mine, and I don't know the seller, but I was shocked to see it as Colorado Springs isn't what you'd call an electronic music town. And $3400 may seem like a lot (probably haggle down to $3000) but the 101 keyboard synth, expander, and sequencer are each getting a $100...

Re: My bands first 3 recordings

Sounds good Rob. Believe it or not, those are some of the best demos I've heard in ages. Your keyboards mix well with your vocalist - never one getting in the way of the other. You have a good chance of advancing the Sheffield musical legacy.

Re: Name That Synth - Stop Making Sense AND Genius of Love

I think that the short, high synth in Genius of Love was an ARP Odyssey. I don't remember where, but I think I read that somewhere recently.

Omotesando Free Spirit - Motorik Beat

I got hooked on Motorik beats after watching the BBC documentary on Krautrock. Mine is less flow and more pop, but the motorik beat is there:

Moog Modular V2 and Virtual String Machine

For my birthday, I got two softsynths: the Arturia Moog Modular V2 and the GForce Virtual String Machine. They are as different as night and day in both function and sound. The Modular is a CPU hog like no other. However, I love it's sound. The VSM can be anything from beautifully lush and epic to t...

Re: syndae - podcast on fine electronic music

Man, I love what I just heard on Episode 39. That's some of coolest and mellowest electronic music I've heard for a long time.

BTW, loved your Special Star Trek show too.

Re: 1st electronic track in a long time

Wow - cool. Did you have someone do the vocals or are those loops? It reminds me of Go! Team except the language is certainly rougher then anything they ever did. The song is great, however, you might want to consider G rating the lyrics and going for a wider audience. Still it's cool the way it is.

Re: 80s synth music addiction!

The DX7 got around quite a bit in the 80s. Phil Collins, Miami Sound Machine, Madonna, etc. Probably the epiano patch got used more than anything, but also tines, bells, and that non-harmonic bass sound it does so well. I have a TX802 (rack version of the DX7 II) and use it all the time. As far as b...
