Music of my Best Ambient Synth Shootout series

Post by CSonicSpaces » Sun Oct 14, 2018 9:23 am

Hi all,

I would like to share with you the YouTube playlist with the music I've composed for my Best Ambient Synth Shootout series

So far the series contain the following synths:
Access Virus A
Akai Miniak
Bastl Instruments Kastle
Bastl Instruments XOR
E-MU Morpheus
Ensoniq Fizmo
Evolution Synthesis EVS-1
Kawai K4r
Kawai K5000R
Korg Prophecy
Yamaha FS1R
M-Audio Venom
Modal Craft Synth
Olegtron 4060 MK2
Quasimidi TechnoX
Red Sound Darkstar XP2
Roland M-VS1
SM Pro Audio V-Machine
Technics WSA1
Waldorf Blofeld
Yamaha FS1R
Yamaha TG33
Yamaha VL7

For the recording I usually not used the dry signal of the synths but added a variety of effects using different fx units and pedals. The FX chains are mentioned in the video description. The signal went then through a small Behringer mixer directly into the pc for recording. The final song was then mastered with a bit EQ and compression on some tracks and some limiting on the master track.

To create the complete songs I recorded consecutively several stereo tracks with the synths. It's an exiting way to compose music, because unless the last track isn't recorded one can't hear the complete, finalized song. This generates a certain level of randomness during the song creation, because having a song idea in mind at the beginning the outcome could be completely different to that.

Enjoy ;)
