EMS Synthi AKS demo

Published on May 2, 2017 kovalmoog

"This demo was recorded on 8-23-2015, after repairing and restoring the unit, which not belongs to me.

Being a pretty rebel synthesiser and with its own philosophy, we try to generate sound resources reasonably controlled, and not to fall in a purely random use.

First, we try to synthesize those descending sweeps heard in the first part of "Oxygéne 2" (Jean-Michel Jarre, 1976), before the main lead part.
After that, we visited the typical sequence of "On The Run" (Pink Floyd, 1973), although from a very free approach, we didn't intend an exact recreation. Nevertheless, the 8 notes entered in the sequencer are exactly those used in the original theme (exhaustively verified).

The AKS's line output was processed thru a Strymon Timeline, using various delays with modulations applied on its feedback.

Siendo un sintetizador tan rebelde y con una filosofía propia, intentamos generar recursos sonoros razonablemente controlados, y no recurrir a un uso puramente azaroso.

En primer término intentamos generar las clásicas ráfagas descendentes que se escuchan en la primera parte de "Oxygéne 2" (Jean-Michel Jarre, 1976), antes de la aparición del lead principal.

Luego visitamos la típica secuencia de "On The Run" (Pink Floyd, 1973), aunque desde un enfoque muy libre, no es una recreación exacta. No obstante, las 8 notas ingresadas en el sequencer son las que se usaron en el tema original (dato exhaustivamente comprobado).

La salida de audio del AKS fué procesada por un Strymon Timeline, usando diversos delays con modulaciones aplicadas sobre la realimentación.
