Roland CR78 classic tracks on Youtube

Post by Harlem Nights » Fri Feb 19, 2010 9:00 pm

Made another nostalgic exercise like the Linndrum, TR808 and Oberheim DMX films on my youtube channel

This time the Roland CR78 drummachine, which was used in many of my all time favourite New Wave tracks. Drum sounds were sampled and patterns rebuilt in the Korg Electribe ESX, with additional Linndrum sounds where in the original tracks acoustic drumkits were added. All synth and bass sounds are from my Roland Juno 106 (1984) and Juno 60 (1982) synths, trying to emulate the Prophets and other synths used in the original tracks. Additional fx by Boss SE50. All recreated by ear. None of the original tracks were sampled.

- Daryl Hall & John Oates - I can't go for that
- Gary Numan - Remind me to Smile
- Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark (OMD) - Enola Gay
- Soft Cell - Tainted Love
- Phil Collins - In the Air Tonight
- Roxy Music - Jealous Guy
- Blondie - Atomic

Enjoy :)
