Jupiter-8, Juno-60, TR-707 – 1980s style

July 29, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized 

Background information:

An ’80s synth / dark improvisation in my style utilizing mostly early ’80s Roland synths. I’m using a few “live” performance techniques like acting on the synth volumes and filters in real time. The verses are a bit “straight” but the choruses have a good chord progression and sound nice (if a bit melancholic) with the huge, magic, silky string sound of the JP-8, and the electric bass following on the high notes, wait for them ;-)

Equipment:

Roland Jupiter-8 = octave arpeggio synth bass, strings, pad, lead
Roland Juno-60 = pad
Roland TR-707 = drums, arpeggio sync
Fender Jazz = electric bass
Fender Stratocaster = electric guitar
Roland M-10DX = submixing, reverbs, echoes
Cakewalk Sonar X1 PE = recording, effects, compression
