“The Unknown” by TSF

September 4, 2011 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

“This new composition is about the unknown, and having no idea where things are going but knowing that you’ll get there somehow and enjoying the journey along the way.
The piano lead (Yamaha Motif-6/A-90) played by Danielle is improvised over the accompaniment of the Jupiter-8 res/bass patch and the D-50 synth strings patch played by Crystal.
TR-808 drum machine is also used for an analog percussion track.

Please enjoy the randomness.
and thanks for joining us on the journey. :)”

Eventide Space + DSI Prophet 08 = Sunday Improvisation

August 24, 2011 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Just a little improv on the prophet 08 going through the space.

The Prophet ’08 truly signals the return of the classic Sequential Circuits Prophet synthesizers, in a beautiful, modern and ultra-stable programmable analog synthesizer! Building on the Poly Evolver keyboard, the Prophet ’08 offers eight voices of polyphony with a 100% analog signal path. The look is spot-on! Brand new, the Prophet ’08 already looks like it’s a classic vintage piece of history. And its sound really does blow you away!

Dave Smith is considered a legendary figure in the synthesizer world, he founded Sequential Circuits and designed such classics as the Prophet 5 and Prophet VS, and he was a pioneer in bringing MIDI to synthesizers. The new for 2007 Prophet ’08 brings back much of the original technology from those old Prophets (like Curtis filters and analog oscillators), updated of course, to meet today’s musicians needs.

While it doesn’t sound exactly like an original P5, it does sound and behave more like one than any other pretender. It’s cleaner, purer and a little more predictable than its 25 year old predecessors. Actually, it sounds just like the Poly Evolver, minus the digital oscillators.

Regardless, the Prophet ’08 is truly a modern day Prophet series synth. Unlike many (Roland) synths that are attaching vintage model names to their current synths even though they are almost nothing alike (Juno, SH, etc.), the Prophet ’08 is the real-deal next generation version of its predecessors. As DSI says, the Prophet ’08 is the product of evolution, not nostalgia. Of course, it includes features we now take for granted, like velocity and aftertouch. Add to that performance features like an arpeggiator, gated step sequencer, and the ability to split and layer sounds. The modulation possibilities are much deeper than anything Sequential ever produced, making it capable of producing sounds the “classics” simply could not.

Live improvization on the Fenix synth

August 16, 2011 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Synton was a manufacturer and distributor of high-end electronic music equipment in the Netherlands. They were one of the principal importers of music equipment from E-Mu, Ensoniq, and Fairlight in Europe. Felix Visser, the founder of Synton began the company in 1973 after purchasing an EMS Synthi AKS and setting out to produce similar equipment with more of the functionality that he was looking for in an analog synth. Eventually, the company developed Synton Syntovox vocoders as well as the System 2000 and System 3000 modular synthesizers that were sold to Karlheinz Stockhausen and distributed in the United States by Bob Moog’s Big Briar Inc. In 1983, Felix Visser, product specialist Marc Paping, and designer Bert Vermeulen created the Synton Syrinx, a monophonic analog synthesizer that contained unique features such as a metal touchplate for manipulating sound as well as a formant filter.

Because none of the commercial analog synthesizers on the market had the same features as the synthesizer he wanted, Marc Paping and Bert Vermeulen reunited in 1997 to create the Synton Fenix, an analog modular synthesizer featuring 31 differing modules. The Synton Fenix featured an esoteric range of features and was the culmination of the designs that Paping and Vermeulen had liked in the vintage analog synthesizers that they had owned, played, and developed in the past. After creating an initial 25 handbuilt units and distributing these to close friends and fans of the Synton company, the team decided to handbuild another 50 units due to high demand from word of mouth. In total, only 75 units were created and the team stopped production of the Fenix in 2000. Musicians have cited the Synton Fenix as their favorite piece of musical equipment due to the combination of unique modules and distinctive sounds the synthesizer was able to create.

Live Minimoog Improvisation

March 23, 2011 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Hi guys.
We’ve been messing around with our Moog Minimoog Voyager in a semi-modular way and with the little Trax Rota-Synth sequencer to create some pulsing new sounds for our upcoming album. So here’s a little snippet of an experiment.
No computers involved!

Oh and the sound was captured with the camera microphone, so it isn’t pristine, but still cool ;)
