“Firecracker” (by YMO) – played on an ARP Axxe

September 15, 2011 · Posted in Uncategorized 

Always an YMO fan :-)

I recorded this two years ago using only analogue equipment. The audio is entirely digital-free, except for the transfer to PC and YouTube’s compression. No sequencing here!

I reluctantly sold the Axxe earlier this year (but she’s gone to a good home!), so I dug out this old recording and added some very silly images for a quick video to put on YouTube as a tribute to this great beast of a machine.

All parts played on an ARP Axxe monoophonic analogue synthesizer
All effects from an Electro-Harmonix Memory Man delay pedal
Recorded and mixed on a TASCAM Portastudio 414 mkII 4-track cassette deck

“Firecracker” performed by James Cronin, written by Martin Denny, based on the cover by Yellow Magic Orchestra.
