Case Study # 1 Aphex Twin – Heliosphan
Here is an attempt to recreate Heliosphan by Aphex Twin.
All of the sequencing was done one the Yamaha RS-7000 and all sounds came from the Waldorf Micro Q Keyboard in multimode. The purpose of this recreation was to better understand complete compositions, mixing, and layering synthesizer sounds. It was also done for the sake of pushing programming skills and pushing the limits of the Micro Q.
Most often synthesizers are used to about 10 percent of their potential because they are not programmed correctly or used multitibrally.
