"Vanguards" - RS7000 + DW-8000 + ESQ1 + MS2000 + Radius


Published on Oct 13, 2016 Patrick Manderson

"'Vanguards' - RS7000 + DW-8000 + ESQ1 + MS2000 + Radius

This music was recorded live Friday afternoon on October 7 2016 using a Yamaha RS7000 sequencer and a room full of MIDI synthesizers.

All performances and automation were painstakingly programmed into the sequencer and played back through 2 mixers into 2 channels in Ableton.

This music was inspired by a rescued-from-the-dead Korg DW-6000. 5 patches are featured during the performance. The Korg MS-2000 contributed 3 patches that were tweaked to closely approximate the DW-6000 and was used in concert when the DW was busy. The Ensoniq ESQ1 emphasizes the chord changes in the first section a plays along with a soft filtered pad throughout the rest of the music. The Korg Radius took care of all hi-hat and splashing percussions using filtered noise. Kicks, snares and toms came from the Roland Super JV-1080 was also used for bass. The Yamaha RX-5 layer its toms on top of the JV-1080. The Roland Super JD-990 provided hi-fidelity portamentos and a reverberated pad of pulse waves. The Dave Smith Instruments Prophet '08 droned piano chords throughout most of the piece.
