Voyage Into the Unknown – Andy Barrow – Minimoog Voyager XL – Korg Radias – Kawai K4

Background information on this video from Andy:

Hi All,

Better late than never. Having issues making anything stick, Fell upon this idea and just went with it…..Suggest a Decent pair of Headphones or Monitors – Turned up!!!

A piece of music that started out in Reason 5 using Dr Rex Loop player, I exported a couple of loops to use in my Cubase Project and worked up from there. This piece was recorded live into Cubase using a total of 8 Tracks of audio. I hope to add more tracks and make it last longer for better effect and pad this piece out with some extra sounds to add to the ambient effect (located somewhere in this track)

Some big Pad sounds from both Kawai and Radias – earning them their right to stay in the studio. The Minimoog giving me that nice deep growling bass I wanted for this music and taking full advantage of the Pitch and Mod Wheels. The Radias and the XL set the theme to start the Music off into the Voyage into the unknown

The main part of this video is of me (apparently struggling) unpacking the Voyager XL – Yes this is a heavy unit and one I did not want to drop, not that it would hurt the Moog, just probably crack the floor :-) Probably the sexiest looking synth ever – if you like the retro look and love analogue (digital is nice …But……)

The very last part of this video with the Drums and Moog – The stereo effect is direct from the Voyager XL by using the Touch Panel to effect change in EG and its Position in the Stereo image – This will form part of the continuation for this piece of Music – Not sure on what direction I am heading in yet with this, needless to say the Moog’s will be out to play

Hope you enjoy this as much as I did putting this together.

Many thanks for dropping by and watching

Andy
