Eric Whitacre - Lux Aurumque (RAC Analog Synthesizer Version)

Super nice piece featuring only a Minimoog Model D. This one spotted & sent in via Soviet Space Child.

"Companion piece to the Clair de Lune version I posted earlier.
Rac – Claude-debussy-clair-de-lune [embed below]

It's by far one of my favorite choral compositions and it's a little bit difficult to re-create certain vocal expressions on a synthesizer, but I tried.

This one is all minimoog model D. Listen with headphones for extra detail."

This is one of the finest pieces of music ever written. It's very cinematic and I was kinda bored on a friday night, so I decided to just make my own version of it.
It's featuring the Minimoog model D, which has some trouble staying in tune, especially on the high notes. The Juno-60 on the chords. I ran the last half of it through this old tape deck, so you kinda get this rough tape hiss and distortion.

I was kinda inspired by this arrangement of another song.
Datashat – Arr-datassette-promenade
I've always been a big fan of David Holmes version as well. (Which turns out to be Tomita's version. I had no idea)
Hope you like it."

Electrix Filter Factory Drone Demo

Published on Jul 29, 2015 Alfonso Alba

Listen in stereo and watch your volume levels.

"Besides filtering, the Electrix Filter Factory can be used as a sound generator. In this demo, I use the FF in 12 db/oct stereo mode to process two channels independently. The output of the left channel is used to modulate the cutoff frequency of the right channel (with an attenuator in-between), while the output of the right channel feeds back into the left input. This configuration alone is able to produce a wide range of tones, drones, space sounds, noises, etc.

The stereo output of the FF is run through the Electrix MoFX and then through a Lexicon MPX-500 doing a basement reverb. After a few minutes, I turn up the mix levels on the MoFX (flanger first, then delay, then rotary speaker), and after another few minutes, I turn up the reverb mix on the MPX-500, turning everything into a full-on drone.

After a while, I slowly take out the effects from the MoFX and MPX-500, leaving only the sound from the Filter Factory at the very end.

Sound was recorded into a Tascam DP-24 digital multitrack recorder."

Roland Juno-106 thru BOSS CE-20 Chorus Ensemble Analog Synthesizer

Published on Jul 29, 2015 SynthgodXXX

"Roland Juno-106 'The Holy Synth'
thru BOSS CE-20 Dimensional Processor
Chorus Ensemble by Rik Marston
100% No Talking!!
***Watch In HD***

Roland Juno-106 "The Holy Synth"
thru the BOSS CE-20 Chorus Ensemble!
If your Juno-106's Chorus Effects are noisy, swishy
or down right broken, the CE-20 may be your answer!
This is a very basic demo of the Juno-106 thru the Guitar
input of the CE-20. The CE-20 can be sensitive & you can
hit the PEAK meter quickly so watch your gain!
I must have hit PEAK 75% of this video so please
@3:25 it gets REALLY LOUD!!! LOOK OUT!!!
Nothing too much to mention, I used Dimensional D,
Rich, Acoustic, Bass & Standard on the CE-20.
The Juno-106 is amazing without effects, but if you want
a better option for Chorus then the one on the Juno-106,
then the CE-20 is awesome!"
