LIVE Miami Vice style old school 80s + Tutorial

Published on Feb 26, 2018 Espen Kraft

"I wanted to make something in the ballpark of Jan Hammers more slow , dark, beautiful and melancholic themes from the show.

I came up with this track called "Sheeba", and I rely heavily on digital synths and samplers from the mid 80s. Some analogs too!

The chords and sections that make up the track is explained in detail after the performance of the track so don't turn it off too soon!

The performance is held together by Roland MC50 sequencer that plays the Emax II Liquid Stack guitars while I play other parts. Half of the track is me playing the Emax live.

Bass is off the Roland S-10 sampler played live as is the Korg DW-8000s fairlight pad/strings.

The Yamaha TX802 is also played live over MIDI on the MiniNova.

Additional pads/strings and Fairlight flute is from the Roland Juno 2 and the Yamaha DX7, sequenced.

The simple but effective drums comes off the Akai S1000.

Strymon BlueSky and TC flashback handles reverb and delays.

Everything is going into a couple of Yamaha 01W digital mixers (a Behringer analog mixer does some of the synths) and piped optically into the Audient ID14 soundcard and into the DAW for recording.

Listen to more of my music on:"
