OB6 Vangelis/Guitar-Style Jam (Mono/Unison mode)

Published on Sep 16, 2018 Kris Lennox

"Short demo of the Obi in unison mode. Being unison/monophonic, this take could have been performed on the MB. But it is nice to show the Obi in mono. Very strong sound. And a good demonstration of the Obi's onboard distortion.

The initial arpeggio sequence is a nod to Vangelis' 'Spiral'. I haven't listened to it in a while, but if I remember correctly the Spiral sequence is 9-note, whereas the sequence I'm playing is 7-note. I'm nodding more to the sense of the ascending arpeggios/overall harmony.

The Db section rhythmically is a 14:8 sequence, and the 'slowing down the arpeggiator' style of playing is built on a 10:8 (i.e. 5:4) sequence.

The high Oldfield/Tubular Bells-style sequence in the second half after the guitar-style solo is standard semiquavers in 4/4.

PS all sounds onboard. No post-pro.

All best
