Nae bad Jimmy, nae bad. The voice is good, despite the lack of German.

And not an autotuner in sight!

The JX-10 is indeed mine, although it used to belong to VSE member replicalex.
I got a JX-10 w/PG800 recently, and have to say it's a great piece of kit. Sounds amazing.
Good to hear. To be honest I'm sort of on the fence about the JX-10 really. There's plenty of tasty pads, strings and brass patches on offer, but at the same time I can see why it's not too popular - the filter isn't the best and the resonance can be quite harsh. The MIDI implementation and patch structure are both rather loopy too.

However the keyboard feels lovely and some patches sound incredible. Having 6 notes of polyphony at your disposal when layer is also handy.

SK-50? that's a Yamaha YC-45D by the looks of it.
You have a keen eye, good sir! :clap:

It is indeed a Yamaha YC-45D combo organ, complete with the original stand, bass pedals and a rotary speaker that the previous owner kindly chucked in for free.

Thanks. It's not really a style I can nail too well but I gave it a shot.

And you'd be right. But there were six or so vocal takes. ;)

I actually liked this better than the original. I'm straining to hear that YC come in, is it around the 1 minute mark?

As promised I finally gotten around to replacing the parts on this. The newer track I am presenting includes pretty much all my analogue gear. I think it's an improvement, but I may be wrong of course. Again some feedback, hopefully to help confirm this as a step in the right direction, would be much appreciated!

Here's the link:

Bear in mind that it's "version 2" you are after, although I've left the original up for reference. Also listening through headphones I realised I'd really went to town with that reverb. I've decided to tone it back a bit for the more recent mix.

The YC is at my new place, but alas it is not used in this track. Sorry I didn't make this clear - no wonder you were straining! ;)

Just given them both a quick listen - nice job, again... I think there are a couple of things I like better about the new version, and a couple I prefer about the older one - the 5th pulses are tighter, perhaps, in the older one - but the chorus and middle in the new version are particularly good.

So... need I ask for a kit list?

I'd probably blame the Kenton Pro-2 for potential sloppy MIDI timing, although the new sound itself is definitely more percussive. Glad it's more good than bad though. :)

Aye, there's been quite a few changes:

Main lead - DX7 layered with Polysix and Logan String Melody (only in the middle)
Bass line - Moog LP and Mono/Poly (mixed low at the intro and outro)
Pulse wave in 5ths - Polivoks layered with Juno-G
Strings - JX-10 and Logan String Melody (during the chorus)
Soft lead - CAT
Drums - ER-1

You sure are! It's providing the soft sawtooth lead during the choruses.

Thanks man. I think the sound I've programmed on the LP comes pretty close to nailing the sound in the original, although the decay isn't quite the same.

Very good James, the second version particularly. The analogues shine through in the instrumental parts and the vocal ain't bad either. Good job.
