OB6 + Piano (Mellow/Pensive)

Published on Jul 3, 2018 Kris Lennox

"England through to the quarters!! Nice one. Go on. As a quarter Englishman, this is a good night.

The music should appropriately be upbeat. Alas, disappointment if you are looking for excitement!

Not very interesting to watch; more of a piece to be listened to.

I spent quite a while working on the OB6 sound. Very soft & organ-like at points.

Piano added after OB6 part recorded.

The Star Shepherd Synthesizer

Published on Jul 3, 2018 Nightwind Records

"Enter the STAR SHEPHERD a synth I Build/bent/hacked/modified from old guitar pedals FX and EQ boxes, a small AM radio and a 1981 Casio 403 keyboard. The oscillator section is made out of Pitchshifter/Harmonizers/Sub Octavers and a graphic EQ pedal to create complex harmonic tones – transmorphed from the simple keyboard sounds fed by the Casio. The sound then goes through a bunch of circuitbend Analog delays, reverbs, Tremolos & Vibratos (figuring as makeshift LFO sources) and Wahwah pedals as filters. The AM radio is figuring as a random noise source. There is also a very simple keyboard style ‘sequencer’ made from a looper pedal.

The case is made out of cheap plywood and everything is held together with screws, glue and tape. There are also some LED strips pulsating from the inside for some extra intense magic.

It is very noisey, crackley and sometimes starts doing its own thing like some sentient synthesizer being that is alive. This makes it quite an adventerous experience.

Synth Stuff Ep. 45 - Korg DS-8

Published on Jul 2, 2018 tritonrecordings

"Yamaha wasn't the only company meddling with FM synthesis. The DS-8 is a four operator FM synth from Korg that makes for a nice alternative to the DX7. Some major advantages include built-in FX and a few controls that allow you to quickly edit some parameters. While the DX7 is the classic and is in my top 3 favorite synths, the DS-8 is definitely worth checking out if want FM hardware that isn't another Yamaha. It also seems to have a more noisy and lo-fi quality to it."
