Yamaha DX7 – Legendary electronic music, Jean Michael Jarre Oxygene and Vangelis Blade Runner Blues

Published on Feb 9, 2018 Power DX7

"This is a Yamaha DX7 music video of re-creating those legendary electronic music by two legendary musicians and composers, Jean Michael Jarre and Vangelis.

Jean Michael Jarre - Oxygene Part 2 (short version) – I created a short demo of the famous electronic music with a lot of analog synthesizers used in the original score. I used the DX7 MK1 to re-create analog bells, percussive sound, metallic sound and pitch bending sound. The original score also features a beautiful analog strings/pad sound, and I created the DX7 version that is equally beautiful. There is also another beautiful pad that used for a release sound for the saw percussive sound. What I love the most is the amazingly beautiful analog pad (I’m a sucker for beautiful pads/ strings). That is the reason why I love Oxygene Part 2, as it features this beautiful pad/ strings.

Vangelis - Blade Runner Blues (Full Length) – This project of re-creating this beautiful music/ sound track from the original (and the best) Blade Runner started by great friends of mine asking me about Yamaha CS-80 type lead sounds. Once I remembered that beautiful sound track in Blade Runner (watched many years ago), I decided to challenge myself to re-create the whole music using only the DX7 MK1. It took me many months of tweaking DX7 patches, listening to the sound track, transcribing music to Logic Pro X, recording many takes and mastering for the final version.

It features the famous Yamaha CS-80 lead, another great Yamaha CS-80 harmonic rich and gritty saw type pad (I just love pads and strings!), Yamaha GS-1 vibe, and a window rattler bass.
For viewing enjoyment, I put photos of city night scenes taken in the city of Melbourne in Australia (what a beautiful city with full of interesting features).

By re-creating those legendary electronic music, the DX7 proves itself that it’s an amazingly capable and versatile synthesizer (and really great at producing beautiful pads!!!).

So relax and enjoy the legendary electronic/ synthesizer music re-created by Yamaha DX7 MK1.

Note: All the DX7 sounds are Power DX7 original patches created using the DX7 MK1 only (no editor). Effects including reverb, chorus, flanger and delay are used for some patches. No equalizers are used for all of the DX7 patche."
