Halloween Drone : Red Sound Dark Star
Published on Oct 29, 2016 100 Things I Do
"An amazingly cheap and fun desktop synth. Fantastic drone machine that can play up to 8 notes or 5 dual oscillator tones at the same time.
The Dark Star has had a hard time in the synth world, with a mix of RCA jacks for outputs, an almost obtuse 'go your own way' interface for sound design and some rather basic presets it emerged and faded from the EDM / DJ scene in the early 2000's.
I hope to do a series of videos using this synth in the coming weeks. It really has some awesome sound potential and you can spend hours just tweaking away into very interesting sonic adventures. I tend to use it very much like the VCS3 and you can get some very similar / modular textures from it without too much effort. For the Average price of around $200usd at the moment your synth world might just need one
A stereo delay and some slight saturation effects and the Free TAL Chorus-LX were used in this clip.
I hope you enjoy the drone!"
