SLEDGE - Rush "Subdivisions" Cover

Published on Nov 6, 2017 Adam Borseti

"A while back, I recorded a drum track of Subdivisions by hand (key drumming) and put some faux guitar over it. My intention was to develop it into a full-blown cover, but other things got in the way. I LOVE me some Rush, and "Signals" is my album of theirs, so when people started asking me to program a Subdivisions patch on the Minilogue, I knew there was some interest.

Problem is, while the Minilogue is wonderful, you CANNOT play Subdivisions with 4-voice polyphony; not properly anyway! Now that I've got this Sledge, I decided to finish the cover and upload myself laying on the final track (the main synth comp/pad).

There were some mistakes here and there, but I only did this to show off the awesome patches for it that will be included in the set! So, aside from the drums and guitar, everything else was Sledge. That's the intro 7/8 bit, which I doubled up a few times for a Unison type effect, the choir in the bridges, the Minimoog lead (which you see me quickly trying to switch to while playing) and the comp/pad sound that plays throughout the whole song.

Finally, you may have noticed that I am playing the song in standard F,"

Nailed it.
