Re: Psyche - Tangerine Dream inspired ambient

Very nice track !!
Indeed it's fitting in the old TD style, but with more peaceful sounds if I may call those that way (not as "raw" as the mid-70ies TD). But as fine; well done !

Re: "Old Creek On The Witch Mountain" Part 1 & 2

Thanks JMP for the nice comments ! It's my purpose to bring a CD album out soon. I'm currently working on an EMS Synthi track for The Synthi Group Vol. 2 (deadline for that track is early December), and then I'll do the finishing touch for "The Heidelberg Mystery" title track. Thanks again & see you...

Re: "Old Creek On The Witch Mountain" Part 1 & 2

My computer hates myspace :shock: :lol: But now seriously: I agree that this is hateful that tracks have been splitted up and that you can't download it yet, but my purpose is to bring out a few of these current tracks as a CD album; I'll look out for a label soon, and I'm afraid that no label will...

Re: Guess the synths...

I'd add the Roland VP-330 (or RS-202) strings in track 1.

I'll have a better listen tomorrow (for now I was just hearing this on poor laptop speakers).

Re: Memorymoog Plus - who else here uses one?

Heath, what would you think about my MM vs. set of other vintage synths ?
Would it be a dumb trade ?

Re: Billy Jean

The "Billy Jean" strings coming in just after the bass in the opoening part of the song are 4x overdubbed strings from a Yamaha CS-80 (I also mentioned this already in an other thread about this song).

Re: Memorymoog Plus - who else here uses one?

I own one too. With Lintronics L.A.M.M. added. It's a super synth, only the making of e.g. nice pads seems hard to do (to me), unless using FX signal processors adding chorus or phasers. But I guess that's pretty typcial for MOOG synths (except with modular systems or a Polymoog). But the lead sound...

Re: What was the ultimate drum machine of the '80's?

First drum sounds of the 80ies I'd think off are - like mentioned - the TR-808, TR-909, LinnDrum, and Simmons drums. I fully agree with those.

Re: Go West 1st album synths

Roland Jupiter 8 (the main "Call Me" pad) Yamaha DX7 (they basically stepped through a bunch of presets through "We Close Our Eyes"). Exactly. Also for some other sounds (not only that pad) they used the JP-8 as far as I know. Maybe our absolute specialist on this matter will have more exact facts....

You should check out the new book by Nick Awde called MELLOTRON available at http://www.deserthearts.com The definitive Mellotron book. Hadn't seen this book; thanks for the link !! I'm very fond of the Mellotron as I'm a huge fan of the late 60ies and 70ies Prog Rock bands (Pink Floyd, King Crimso...

Same here... It's on top of my wanted list, but after the amount of $$ I have been spending for my CS-80, I'll have to save for a long time and I'm afraid it would cost me a divorce. #-o

Re: SYNTHGEEK

I know a Dutch guy with hundreds and hundreds of vintage synths (to name some of those: 4x Roland JP-8, the entire Roland JP-, Juno-, and SH-series (!), 2x Elka Synthex, Korg PS-3100, 3200 ánd 3300, everything (!) from MOOG, everything (!) from Sequential Circuits, etc...etc...), but like he wished ...
