Nice to hear those guys making a few mistakes. Even with his stunning sequencer like accuracy, Mr. Rimbert doesn't quite nail the bass line :) I feel better about my technique now...

Great photos but I'd love to get my hands on the complete score for oxygene instead of those piss poor versions in the songbooks that miss about 8 tracks from each song.

I presume I list my synths;

NORDLEAD 2 keyboard, KORG DW6000, ROLAND JD800, ROLAND JP8000,WALDORF Q keyboard (beautiful limited edition with wood ends and stunning livery), WALDORF XTK, YAMAHA CS1X. All sequenced by a mint AKAI ASQ10.

Which ones do you have? The piano arrangement versions are very good, and would guide you towards figuring out what the other parts are. The name of the guy who did those escapes me, but he used to play piano for Jarre and do the choir arrangements. Anyway, they're the most recently published books of Jarre's sheet music.

PS, just between you and me, I draw the line at listing my gear in my sig. I think doing that is a bit sad. And anyway, my list wouldn't fit :twisted:

Another good way is to try a good MIDI file and view it as a staff/score in your host sequencer.

Hey I personally don't do it just to show off, :? it's for others to see the kind of gear I'm into or to ask about the stuff I have. I've had a few personal messages in the past regarding the stuff I've listed in my sig that isn't necessarily on a current thread.

I have all the songbooks and the most comprehensive one would be Waiting For Cousteau - though even that is limited. The midi files available are basic and often incorrect.

The rest ( mostly put together by Sylvain Durand )just tend to give a max of about 4 parts and in the case of the sequences are terribly simplified. Most of the earlier ones where produced by the Matrisequencer playing in irregular time signatures over the songs main 4/4 structure,starting and looping at random to never sound static or repetative. But then again, I imagine that a full production score would be enormous and of use only to nerds like me.

I have painstakingly unpicked the majority and have them safely stored in my ASQ10. A printed score however would be fascinating.

Question; are there programs available that would allow me to print off my sequnce data as score?

I think Sebelius does that but it ain't cheap.


If only there was a notation to that little percussive synth solo on the latter half of the original Equinoxe 7. :(

Finale Notepad. It's free.

I'm not quite sure what part you mean when you say 'percussive solo' at the end of the Original album version of Equinoxe 7. Your don't mean the white noise sequence??

If you can be more descriptive, I may be able to help.

I'm pretty sure if you record those sequences as midi data on any software sequencer (cubase, logic, etc), you can open the scores editor and then print that midi data.
No one cares, no one sympathizes,
so you just stay home and play synthesizers.

My mistake it comes in around 1.21 and is a kinda percussive portamento sequence that also drifts in at 4.35 pans right 5.10 and has a delay on the left side. Its not a consistent sequence which is why I said it was more an arpeggio solo type melody which hangs subtly in the background.
You never hear this on any live versions and its on no MIDI file I have but if anyone has an accurate version? \:D/

I've asked this in other places (so don't mind if you have already heard this question elsewhere), and just to collect more opinion, I'm going to ask here.

What do you think, which synth was used for Equinoxe 4 sequence.
Most people think It's ARP2600, and so do I, but something tells me it could be Oberheim two-voice.
So what do you think and why

thanks
