Oberheim DMX / Juno 106 tracks on Youtube

Post by Harlem Nights » Fri Jun 05, 2009 11:34 pm

Some of you may remember me from the LinnDrum and TR-808 films I posted earlier, thx for all kind responses

Now the Oberheim DMX, the third major drummachine of the 80s.... This time I started with some of my fav classic synth disco, and tried to recreate more synth parts using ONLY my JUno 106, to retain that 80s sound. This was interesting to do, learned me new depths of the good old 106 as the originals were all made with different synths of course

Drums again from Electribe ESX, this time filled with DMX samples, only using internal fx. No original tracks sampled, all recreated by ear again. This time tracks like New Order / Blue Monday - Fun fun / Happy Station - Chaka Khan / I feel for you.... Now in retrospect Trans-X / Living on Video may have been a different story, almost sure a TR-808 after all, instead of a modded DMX I read about. This version was done with DMX samples so it's in this video



Hope you enjoy!

Very nice. Excellent spound quality, editing and production. The added synth parts were a nice touch.

Keep it up! Look forward to more (I just subscribed).

Those patches are spot-on with the originals. Might not have known the difference! Really making me miss my 106. Love the light ball.

Not that I means much from me (as I am no one, really) but I am *HIGHLY* impressed with this. You obviously know your gear very well, and you should be playing your own stuff live! What did you use for the visuals in the video? The trippy stuff?

Keep it up.

Man, that was completely astonishing! The Blue Monday kick was identical!

Thx again :-)

on the ESX you can pitch up samples and then bend them way down - so you get a faster attack combined with a deeper body than the original sample, if you balance this the overall pitch stays the same to the ear... I used a bit of this 'zap' feature on many kicks here :D
