A single track, impromtu performance on my Rhodes Chroma. I call the resulting song ‘Memories of Dune.’ I used a particular patch configuration which sounds as if many things are going on.
I love my Rhodes Chroma!

Feel free to “Like” this video if you found it useful. That is the only tangible recompense I look forward to for my efforts.

Analog Monsters Roland Juno-106 does ARP SOLINA String Synthesizer!

June 18, 2015 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Analog Monsters: Roland Juno-106 does
ARP SOLINA or ARP OMNI String Synthesizer!

Analog Monsters Roland Juno-106 Jupiter-8 style
Blue LEDs, Bender & Polymeter!
100% No Talking! Just pure Analog Bliss!

The Polymeter is synced to the voice board, just like a DSI synthesizer,
when a key is struck each voice lights up on the Polymeter panel!
VERY Trippy in a dark studio!!
Perfect for collectors and acid trippers!! LOL!

The Roland JUNO-106 does (In my opinion)
I tried to do my best making a ARP SOLINA,
ARP OMNI or ARP QUADRA string patch.
The chorus is no phaser , but I like it better on the
Roland Juno-106 dry with no chorus.

The video starts off dry with no chorus then I add chorus I & then II.
After that I show off some drone atmospheres & space EFX.
With & without the internal chorus.

This synthesizer has been modified by Allen at The Synth Spa
Full restoration, Voice Chips, Blue LED’s, Bender & Polymeter!
Custom Roland Jupiter-8 Color Style Buttons! Wood Sides!
100% Bad Ass!!!! Just priceless. No offers excepted.
This one stays in the studio forever!

Now you can hear a full range of the sound capabilities of the new ARP Odyssey (by Korg), brought to you by an accomplished keyboardist and synthesizer programmer, Moot Booxlé. No EQ has been applied to the direct signal, just a bit of compression via LA-2A, and a light reverb.
If you were on the fence about buying one of these because you hadn’t heard any actual musical sounds being created on it, maybe this will help!
Thank you for watching!

Monday morning gear time – KORG/ARP ODYSSEY/MS-20 MINI/ SQ-1 STEP SEQUENCER

April 27, 2015 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Background video description:

Finally an opportunity to tweak my new ARP ODYSSEY a bit as the MS-20 chugs out a simple bass step sequence on the SQ-1. LOVING this new ARP! My 79′ ODDY was never this easy to play. I got used to the MS-20 Mini’s keys this past year, so it was no problem adjusting to the SlimKeys of the Oddy. They actually have great playability and make the package for more useable than the heavier and clunky ARP keys. My original ARP crackled on the sliders and protested under heavy use by drifting in tune religiously. I love the three filter revisions. This demo utilizes the #3 revision and is very nasaly. There is a lot going on with the drum machines as the Volca and TR-707 hiss their cymbals, the CR-78 is DYN sync’d to the TR-707 tapping out latin bongo’s to the SP-1200 bass and snare. The SP-404SX is adding more cymbals and handclaps. Everything is synced to the MTC being directed by the SQ-1.
