Right out of the 80s.  Slide a fretless bass in there?

Nope that’s all P6, Tempest And Guitar. I was thinking of adding a sax but a fretless bass wouldn’t be too bad on the next track.

Greets, all - here's a fresh track, conjured on a dark Sunday afternoon in Berlin. I've been so fixated on my Prophet 6 lately that I wanted an excuse to use all the other synths surrounding me. Here's who's doing what...

Pro One - MIDI'd bass

MS-20 - atmospheric drone, with reverb from both RE-20 and PT plug-in.

Evolver - hard sync arpeggio

Juno 6 - chorused filter sweep chords, w "spring reverb" from Boss RE-20

Micromoog - s/h mosquito freak out. (This is the first time I've ever used the pitch ribbon on this thing!)

Prophet 6 - two tracks playing identical minimal melody. One with vague Vangelis' type brass-ish patch, the other a sync tone that sounds a bit cat-yowly.

TR-707 - drums. I run the 707 through the Evolver, sometimes for precessing, but always cos I don't have enough channels on my mixer!! In this case, the processing on the drums comes from a Pro Tools plug, not the Evolver. More spring reverb from a plug.

You can see the gear in the pic on the SC link and the name of the track will make sense then...

Cheers!

Nice one Anton, great track. I regularly get complaints from my other half about cleaning my room (of equipment with flashy lights). Deja vu all over: doesn't seem to make any difference if I am 18 or 58 years of age. Ha ha.

Thanks for the tip of running stuff through the Evolver, I haven't tried that yet and forgot about that capability.

Glad you enjoyed it, Gerry. My studio at home is small enough that on one hand, there's not much room for cleaning, if that makes sense! Things are only where there's space for them to be! But I'm not a tidy person, it has to be said, and my Novation X-Station, which I use as master controller, is also a table - pens, a lighter, a drum machine, the Evolver, David Bowie guitar pick all resting "neatly" on top at the moment.

I think it's something like Bank 3, patches 30-39, where you'll find the main Evolver "blank" patches for processing. Maybe the ten patches prior are the ones meant for guitar processing. It's all in the manual, so don't take my guess as final word! But yes - the Evolver does a gorgeous job processing external sounds. My first synth was a Prop One and I ran everything in the world through the Audio In. I've got a Korg MS-10 which does a particularly sweet job of fuzzing up electric guitars. The Evolver is set up properly to do external processing in a way that's very appealing. But like I said, it also serves a practical need for me, as I don't quite have enough input channels on my mixer! Thus, the Roland TR-707 lives permanently plugged into the Evolver. I'm due to upgrade my mixer, but I think I might just keep the 707/Evolver combo as-is. They like each other!

Seasonal greets, all. Here's a remake of a song I wrote three years ago during Christmas break in Berlin. It's not a Christmas song, but I do think there's a touch of sleigh bells to the secret vibe. Anyway, this version, apart from drum machine and vocals, is all Prophet 6 and Prophet 5. I tracked it in Berlin with my P6, then augmented or replaced a few tracks via the MIDI'd-up P5. Hope you enjoy!

P.S. - the song I posted last week, Clean Your Room, has been re-jigged a good bit, also with Prophet 5 added and the arrangement/mix in stronger shape. https://soundcloud.com/anton-barbeau/clean-your-room2

Is this the fatal flaw in the ointment? I found this clip last night of me rocking out in the teenage basement, doing what would now be called "DAW-less jamming" or such. Musically, it's pretty wretched (And Sacred Tim, this is an MS-10 in nothing-but-harsh mode), but for you youngsters, all Stranger Thing'd and such, wondering what it was REALLY like back in the day, I give you the purest display on earth. 1984, with PolySix, Korg MS-10, Pro One, dreadful Korg DDM-110 and a Yamaha Porta Sound. Throw in a Casio digital watch, my high school gym shorts and my Split Enz-inspired haircut and you're almost there. I think the main thing is the dancing. Yep, kids, this is EXACTLY how we looked on the dance floor, I swear! Uh, I promise next time I post something here, it'll be anything but this. But I bet at least 2 or 4 of you might get an "authentic" kick out of this frightening time slice! Enjoy!

"Sacred Tim"?  My, that makes me feel special!

Thank you for that amusing plunge into 1980's culture.  I, too, passed those years playing in bands.

I'm still in shock for having discovered this footage, have to say. My father and I moved into a smaller house when I was a teen and some of the money he made on that went towards kitting out my wee basement studio. Meanwhile, by the time of this vid, I'd started working weekends at a trendy dance club, making handfuls of cash each night. The Korg MS-10 I won in a battle of the bands sponsored by the big music store in town. My "best keyboardist" performance was directly inspired by Ron Mael from Sparks, and included a hands-off one-note synth solo, a moment I'm still a bit smug about! The MS-10 is sat directly behind my laptop at the moment. The PolySix is at my dad's and the Pro One is in Berlin.

Well, how could you play a keyboard while you've got those jumping jitters?
