1970’s Polymoog 280A and Dynacord DRS-78 reverb

April 14, 2015 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Random doodling on a 280a connected to a Dynacord digital reverb system and connected to camera audio input (hence grainy audio quality).
Just going through the presets and controls and playing random stuff to demo the sounds.
Dynacord Reverb is a bit noisy/hissy.
I have created a free library of Dynacord DRS 78 Impulse Responses (in wav format) for use with any convolution reverb that accepts IR’s in wav format. So if you like the sound of the Dynacord reverb unit you can have that sound in your own productions.

Stephen Hawking Sings Monty Python… Galaxy Song (Music Video)

April 14, 2015 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Monty Python – Galaxy Song
Available to buy now from iTunes – http://po.st/Ed0IKJ

Enjoy our latest video for our new single, “Stephen Hawking Sings Monty Python… Galaxy Song” which is available as a digital download from 13 April, and on limited edition 7” vinyl on Record Store Day 2015.

The song, which is the title track to “Monty Python – The Meaning of Live”, was originally written for the 1983 film, “Monty Python’s The Meaning of Life”. It has been re-recorded with the lyrics sung by Professor Stephen Hawking.

Written by Eric Idle and John Du Prez, the song is an intricate and informative lecture on the enormity of the Universe fashioned into a bewitching and, above all, highly amusing pop song.

“Galaxy Song” was previously included on the 1989 album “Monty Python Sings”, and included in the 2014 reissue of the album, “Monty Python Sings (again)”, in its original form – sung by Eric Idle – to coincide with Monty Python’s record breaking “Monty Python Live (mostly) – One Down Five to Go” run of 10 live shows at The O2, London. On film during the live shows, Professor Brian Cox berated the scientific inaccuracy of the “Galaxy Song » lyrics before Professor Stephen Hawking knocked him to the ground. Hawking then began reciting the “Galaxy Song” lyrics as he lifted off to journey through outer space. It is this unique rendition of “Galaxy Song” which is now available as a single.

DSI Tetra – ‘Solfeggio’

April 13, 2015 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Dave Smith Instruments ‘Tetra’, details below:

This is a version of a composition by Arvo Pärt, which I’ve recorded a couple of times over the past few years. I only acquired this synth yesterday, so I thought I’d figure it out a little by making my own patch in ‘program mode’, then recording it in ‘combo mode’ (4 independently sequenced voices) using the ‘quad’ output option, so that I could record the 4 voices separately and give them their own panning positions in Reaper (DAW). Pantheon reverb was also added.
I did an earlier version with a Doepfer Dark Energy multi-tracked 8 times, which I think I still prefer, but it’s really nice being able to do something like this on one instrument and in one take.
