DreamsOfWires - AJH Synth Mini Mod system
Published on Sep 21, 2016 DreamsOfWires
"Comprising 1x glide/noise, 3x VCO, 1x ladder filter, 1x dual contour generator, and 1x VCA. I'm currently borrowing this beautiful sounding (and looking) instrument, so expect more videos of it to follow. For more information about it visit here: http://www.ajhsynth.com/Minimod.html
I've have a soft spot for the sound of the Minimoog for a long time, but I couldn't afford or justify the cost of an original, bearing in mind also the lack of flexibility, connectivity and risk of expensive repairs. So, understandably, I re-wrote my letter to Santa when I heard about the Mini Mod. It has the sound of the original Minimoog with the flexibility of a modular. Perfect.
All sounds are from the Mini Mod with a little delay and reverb. After I'd recorded the sequences (as seen in the video) I overdubbed a bass drone on another audio track and some additional sounds at the end. Beyond that I don't want to explain it in anymore detail, it just is what it is - I hope my videos are enjoyable or just provide some inspiration, but they're not intended as tutorial videos. I'm not knowledgeable enough for that.
Video locations are Amble and Warkworth Castle, Northumberland, UK."
