BEWARE: Scott Weiland Performs “But Not Tonight” on Jimmy Kimmel Live :-)

Stone Temple Pilots, often abbreviated to STP, is an American rock band from San Diego, California that consists of Scott Weiland (lead vocals), brothers Robert DeLeo (bass guitar, vocals) and Dean DeLeo (guitar), and Eric Kretz (drums, percussion). The band’s early hard rock, grunge-reminiscent style of music found them immediate success in 1992 with the release of their debut album “Core”. Further releases from the band have shown a variety of influences, and as such the band is considered to transcend the genre barrier.

Yamaha CS01II plays BIG MUFF by Depeche Mode

In this video:

The Yamaha CS01II is the first real synthesizer I ever owned. I got it when I was about 14 years old, back in 1985 or so. I noticed that I could get reasonable approximations of most of the sounds from Depeche Mode’s “Speak & Spell” album with it, but at the time I didn’t have the means to make decent multi-track cover versions, even after I got a 4-track.

Recently I was studying the Depeche Mode 5.1 surround mixes, and realized that I could clearly hear all the distinct parts of alot of the songs, so I decided to throw together some renditions using just my trusty old Yamaha CS01II as the sole sound source (including the drums), just to see how close I could get to the originals using very limited means.

The actual musical arrangement is about 100% accurate. The sounds themselves are of course only approximations, and most of them don’t have the same level of timbral detail as the ARP originals. I sequenced the whole thing in Cubase via a Kenton Pro Solo going into the custom CV/Gate inputs on my CS01II, recording each monophonic line in one at a time. Cubase provided the reverb and EQ, otherwise it’s all CS01II. I’ve deliberately been quite pure about this process- other than the reverb/delay/EQ, there’s no manipulation of the sounds going on here. This is, for me, mostly a technical exercise, so it wouldn’t make much sense to process the sounds very much, as that would only take it further away from the native sound of the CS01II.

I don’t really consider these to be “covers” as such- if I were covering these tunes, I’d do something creative with them as opposed to just mimicing them as closely as possible. I don’t have any desire to “cover” these songs in that sense. At any rate, this project has been a good exercise in close listening and mixing for me, so I see that as the main reward for my efforts.

A small cover of Daft Punk on the tb-303. I decided to just try and program the pattern on the 303, not spot on, but close enough hopefully.

Daft Punk Tron End Titles Synth Cover with Alesis Ion & Micron

April 25, 2011 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Synths changed once again, I re-acquired a Micron along with the Ion. Both have obviously the same type of sound (using the same engine), but the Micron has drums, which is very useful. All the sounds come fom the synths: pad and beat from Micron, lead and sequence from the Ion. The sequence and the pads are sequenced externally. Enjoy.
