Tragic Kingdon

I know that No Doubt co-founder Eric Stefani used a Prophet 5 during the making of the third No Doubt record, Tragic Kingdom . Does anyone know if he used the Prophet for the organ sound on "Sunday Morning," or did he use a real combo organ? (I know that record includes wall-to-wall vintage keyboard...

Here's some previously unreleased instrumental music from the expanded The Warriors soundtrack, starting with the excellent movie version of the "Theme from The Warriors": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DW3vrBZVnBk http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F-KzUZoX2lU http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8XD5k_OhwJ...

Re: ARP 2600 Performance on Chicago VII

Now, I'd just need the big bucks to get one - or to get a damaged one and have it restored. (It wouldn't need to have the 3620 keyboard, as long as it was a 2600.)
But, I'd probably just settle for an original Odyssey (preferably one of the MkII models with PPC).

Re: ARP 2600 Performance on Chicago VII

Oh wow, so one could actually re-create these effects with an Odyssey? That's a wake-up call.

What about the CreamWare Prodyssey?

ARP 2600 Performance on Chicago VII

Okay people, this is something which has long boggled my mind. This is a composition from Chicago VII titled "Italian from New York" (I imagine composer Robert Lamm is referring to himself in the title). I know that Lamm played an ARP 2600 on this track (as well as his more customary Rhodes piano pa...

Re: The great thread of electronic/synthesizer soundtracks

Hey man, cool, I'll listen for it if I end up watching it. FYI apparently no one on this forum cares about music that happened after 1989. Seems weird, but I've posted stuff in this thread, all contemporary synthesized soundtracks, and no one gave a s**t. Take heart, friend, it's not just you. :rol...

Re: The great thread of electronic/synthesizer soundtracks

I can guess that at least a couple of you have watched The Avengers. While Alan Silvestri depended on traditional film orchestration during this film, there were two instances in particular where he made diversions. One was during the fourth scene when Natasha Romanov (Scarlet Johansen) recruits Bru...

Especially during the dance scene. That clap sound is almost unmistakable.

Re: The great thread of electronic/synthesizer soundtracks

One filmscore which (I think) hasn't been brought up here yet is the score from Romancing the Stone . It's one of those classic 80s hybrid traditional/electronic scores. I know Alan Silvestri used a Synclavier for his Flight of the Navigator score. But, do any of you happen to know what he used for ...

Re: The great thread of electronic/synthesizer soundtracks

A classic 80s arsenal. How many people DIDN'T use a DX7 and either a Prophet or an OB?

What part of the LinnDrum was modified to your knowledge, Micke? Was it the tuning function?

Re: The great thread of electronic/synthesizer soundtracks

Wicked cool stuff, Micke. I sometimes consider the DX-5, even though it's probably not as versatile as the DX-1.

To your knowledge, did Harold Foltermeyer use either of those synths for his Beverly Hills Cop score?
