Vocode it then, or do something similar; voice parts don't translate easily to instruments, precisely because of the extra layers of texture you lose.

Re: Switched On Rutter: Blow, blow thou winter wind

It sure is a lot harder than you'd think I wouldn't have picked that, that's for sure! Vocal textures to synth? Complicated. J.S. Bach works far better . You could also try adding aftertouch to your patches, to give them more expression. Orchestration is a demanding task at the best of times, but w...

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

Oh, this is good! Reminds me of Tim Blake's best stuff. If I may, to echo other comments - you need to add a bit of depth to the mix. ie. panning parts left, right to position them, perhaps with some of the non-musical parts further away (quieter, reverb with long reverb times). On the delayed arp (...

Ha! You guys are hilarious. It's not that good; indeed, this is first on my list of tidy-ups when I get some free time. (Korg MS20, here I come)

Re: Drunken studio fumble

I keep typing stuff, but the stuff I type doesn't do it justice. It's just extremely cool. Perhaps Marc, you feel the power of the Rhodes from afar? PS. Tekken - it's the FxFlanger from Sonar. I've brightened up the signal with a bit of EQ before feeding it in, which made a helluva difference, and ...

Re: Drunken studio fumble

You know Rhino, Nathan and Tekken, I reckon I'm better drunk than sober. Playing live was just as well, I don't think I could've worked the sequencer.

Re: Drunken studio fumble

Thank you gentlemen, always nice to be appreciated! Now to answer your questions skweeegor, the stuff was all multi-track recorded within Cakewalk Sonar. - Drum effects : that's just a (slightly) chopped up drum loop fed through a Boss SP303, for pitch-shifting/bit-crushing/tape-delay, then some com...

Drunken studio fumble

Evening all Everyone should have a fumble in the studio when inebriated. Unfortunately, mine only involved a Rhodes Electric piano, a Novation KS 4 and a sampler on drums - no pretty ladies. After several bottles of wine this was recorded - probably all live, but I can't honestly remember. I hope yo...

Re: Novachord #346 Inspection & Initial Wakeup

I've just caught up to this thread. And the demos!

What can I say, Herr Wilson? Gorgeous, fantastically lush pads, and just simply fantastic.

Impasse

Evening ladies and gents,

I present to you a short noodling a Rhodes Mk I, "Impasse" - so called, because I couldn't get out of a simple three-chord progression for most of the track. I hope it tickles your tines.

Impasse (mp3)

Cheers
Angus

Re: Which I/O expander to go with? Opinions wanted.

I believe CTDs tracks were mixed ITB in Sonar, although I could be wrong. Shame he's not around to ask but I'm sure at least one of his tracks was either mixed or tracked through a Behringer desk. However if I'd recorded it through a better mixer it would sound better, you see how it works? Of cour...
