Emerson Lake & Palmer - 'Pirates' practice

Published on Feb 1, 2016 noddyspuncture

Replicating the GX1 with various synths.

"I ran through my 'Pirates' set-up for Kev yesterday. I've been working on the piece for a few weeks - going through it, learning it and also making patches and mapping them out on the synths. It's not an easy one... I want to make it similar to the band-only performances when ELP had to drop the orchestra. It really is my favourite version where the GX-1 shines and you can hear Emo really getting to grips with the sounds. He used sounds that were very similar but with subtle differences which makes the piece for me. It should be much more satisfying that sticking with "orchestral" sounds as most people seem to do...! Anyway, I don't know it all yet so I didn't want to play it for a video... but it looks like Kev had other ideas...;)"
