Asian Synth Pop Cover

Postby NCChao1268 » Mon Aug 28, 2017 6:16 pm

Recorded another cover, this one is of a 90's Asian synth song. I played it on a Kurzweil K2000, Roland JX-8P, and Alesis SR-16, all sounding nearly exact to the original. It is a recreation of the first song in this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bruFdkTSrKw&t=3s It took me a while to figure out the correct notes by ear.
This song is heavy on reverb as well. Originally by Le Duc Cuong, Truc Ho, Nhat Ngan, and Le Hang. Sung by Huong Lan, Elvis Phuong, Anh Son, and Ngoc Bich.

Feel free to listen and let me know what you think.

Cool. Those synth sounds are interesting. I guess you used the JX-8P for the brass sound, it is the same synth used for the horns in Never Gonna Give You Up and Together Forever (Stab Brass), and the Final Countdown. Is that Vietnamese synth music?

Thanks for taking a look and commenting, it is a rather interesting sound set used for this song, partially analog from the JX-8P bells and brass, and samples such as the Asian flute and zither, bass and chords from the K2000. Interesting to know what the producers of these "obscure" songs had in mind. Yes this is Vietnamese synth music. Did it seem like the version I recorded could use any additional mastering such as compression, eq, limiting, etc?

I think the bells were layered by MIDI with a K2000 piano/zithery sound. I don't hear anything additional in the actual song which is related to mastering, maybe some EQ (I think they EQ'd the low end out of the zither).
