Jon Zaremba - Salt Wells - Baldwin Discover DS-50 Demo

Published on May 23, 2015 jonzaremba

"Put together this video for my song "Salt Wells" from the album ROZEL...mainly to demonstrate the great Baldwin Discoverer (DS-50) organ. The entire song was made with this organ (all the drums, chords, melody, etc...) with the exception of a Korg M500 for a couple of the synth parts. Everything was sampled and arranged with a Yamaha A3000, then recorded live. No multitracking or VST stuff."

"It came out in mid/late 70s (pre-MIDI) and features some control over the synth sounds plus a built in drum machine. The auto-accompany can be turned on or off and split at the keyboard (rhythm vs melody). There's a built in speaker but it can be bypassed using the audio outs. This makes it easy to implement in your home studio. They really built instruments to last in the 70s. The DS-50 is made of metal and really well constructed. Original power cord is included.

If you want to hear how it sounds, here's a song i made from my last album using the DS-50 almost exclusively. It's sampled and processed with some outboard equipment, but you'll get an idea of the cool tones possible here."
