Please elaborate--about the tuning, that is.

P.S. No they ain't.
Then is it "3C" or "IIIc"?

Re: Broken Yamaha DX7II-D Video

If you're still having problems, there's a good thread going on the Yahoo DX7 Group with a guy who seems to have very similar issues. He has a DX7II as well. The thread is labeled:

DX7II with E! card. Help on reloading / reset synth after battery replacement

Good Luck

Re: The great thread of electronic/synthesizer soundtracks

Just watched Alone In The Dark (1982), and really liked Renato Serio's score. It sound like a combination of electronic/orchestral, but I'm not sure. Very little info on the Web about Serio. Micke, do you have any info on him?

Re: The great thread of electronic/synthesizer soundtracks

Micke, you are truly amazing!

I went to YT, and found another Mansfield piece I used to use--very much in a Kraftwerk/Passport vein:



Enjoy!

Re: The great thread of electronic/synthesizer soundtracks

Another bit from Space: 1999 , sort of. After Star Wars came out ATV/ITC assembled a pair of movies from episodes of Space: 1999 in 1978. They ended up on TV and as home video releases, but there's no evidence they ever saw any theatrical release. Keith Mansfield's "Disco Dynamite," from Bruton's m...

Re: The Tomita "Whistle" patch

as I recall he started with white noise and demoed that, then filtered it until he got the whistle. That's what I recall, anyway. That makes sense. In the video, you can hear him keying what sounds like white or pink noise, and adjusting the filter. Too bad there wasn't a video camera in the room! :)

The Tomita "Whistle" patch

Tomita's "whistle" patch has always been one of my favorites:



Looks like he's driving the filter into oscillation, and maybe getting some LFO vibrato from the 921 oscillator.

Does anyone know if this patch is online somewhere?

Right on your heels, Micke ;)

Here's the amazing David Sancious with his first solo album. He's playing everything except bass & drums. The Mini solo starts @ 1:58.

Re: The great thread of electronic/synthesizer soundtracks

Hey, has anyone mentioned Hitchcock's The Birds ? My apologies if it has... :oops: It's a very unique score, more sound design than "music", but it is electronic. Here are the opening titles: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7djfwZRgJVs According to Wiki, a lot of the bird sounds were realized with th...

Re: The great thread of electronic/synthesizer soundtracks

Anybody know what was used to get the various sound effects for the computers, machines and general ambience in Star Trek (original series)? I've been watching this again lately, and some of them sound mechanical and others electronic. I wouldn't like to guess what kit they had. I used to have the ...
