Beatles Moog vs. Synthesizers.com by RossT

Track details:
Beatles ‘Here Come the Sun’ Moog and Synthesizers.com experiment
“This is an attempt at emulating the Moog parts from The Beatles song Here Comes the Sun using a Synthesizers.com modular system. The Left channel is the original Moog track ( with some strings bleeding in). The Right channel is the Dotcom modular. The emulation turned out pretty good considering that I’m not using the same recording equipment Abbey Road had to offer at the time. One particular challenge was to emulate a certain vibrato effect heard at certain places. My guess is that the vibrato was not from the Moog itself, but I suspect from the Artificial Double Tracking tape effect which The Beatles employed often and George Harrison was a particular fan of.”

Beatles ‘Because’ Moog vs Synthesizers.com experiment
“Here I take a stab the the Moog sound from ‘Because’. First, the original is heard, followed by the original on the Left channel and the emulation on the Right channel, finally the emulation is played on it’s own.”

Beatles ‘Maxwell’s Silver Hammer’ Moog vs Synthesizer.com experiment
“My attempt at emulating Moog sounds from The Beatles song ‘Maxwell’s Silver Hammer’. First the original Moog sound is heard followed by the Synthesizer.com emulation. I’m relatively satisfied with the brass ensemble but the rest could have been better. There were just some tricky thing going on I could figure out about some sounds. My suspicion is that some of these sounds were played through guitar amplifiers, giving them certain resonant characteristics I couldn’t emulate on a modular synth alone.”
