The Game Needs You

"Thank you Rickey West/Kool & the Gang for The Funk. I hope yous don't mind the bite, brawl, and sprawl.

SE-02 does everything, with the exception of (probably not a proper use of a colon, or list construction):

EMU Xtreme Lead Piano—apart from the fairly feral SE-02 External Input processed piano layers in the Cuban-flavored breaks—makes 1st appearance after the opening bass salvo;
95% of the hi hats;
non 90's kick;
ambient Golden Gate Park tunnel/stargate (Sunshine Jones knows the one), and "All the Things" Lyle Link's transcendent alto sax was on that eternal day spent with son #1 son Carlo (who maddeningly despises the saxophone). Good thing I never made Lyle any the wiser when we chatted warmly after the tune concluded; his entire performance is on my personal Facebook page. And yes brother Greg St. Regis and I are shedding the solo; the sax-like break in this piece is blessed by what I "met" in those SF reverberation revelations. Pay homage to the maestro, beautiful music people:

Moving on from the things I must be forgetting, to bits I remember:

Synth chords/stabs/pads/moods—demanding polyphonics arranged and split apart in DP9, and then fed to the SE-02 one life at a time. Not as time consuming as one might imagine, and sounds so nice...

Kool's chords were tuned in the 3 OSC '02, and multi-tracked for the juicy result I hoped would follow, which did.

The ethereal flutey floating... lead (really needed another f word) = iPhone and SE-02 SPEAKER! Don't even think I touched it after that. And folks assigned that little guy to the trash heap upon 1st blush—another knee-jerk reaction proven wrong. We only know what we know, so knowing otherwise is tricky.

Crunch chords courtesy of DP9's brutally virtual Custom '59—you can hear the raw sound hard right.

Free now to pursue the next sound obsession, and not sure if that's wise... thanks for listening and reading, if you got this far,

Oh yeah the ending verse, one can almost discern:

The game, always lies beneath the truth;
why you surprised when it's uncouth?
The game, strips and preys with nail and tooth:
you can't decry your sacrificed youth.
