Best Ambient Synth Shootout #70: JVC KB-500 - Song 1

Published on Jun 12, 2019 Christian's Sonic Spaces

"This is the first song with the KB-500. You might ask now, what the heck is a JVC KB-500? Well, it's a stereo keyboard from the early 80s. But the sound section seems to be fully analog. And it sounds surprisingly beautiful. Just that it's not possible make any changes to the preset sounds. But that hasn't stoped me to do some ambient with it ;-)

I used for the recording the following FX chain:
KB-500 - Zoom MS-70CDR - Alesis Ampliton - Alesis Philtre - Pigtronix Echolution 2 Deluxe - GFI System Specular Reverb 2. Depending on the recorded track some FX are deactivated.

The signal went through a Presonus StudioLive 16.0.2 into the PC via USB for recording. To create the complete song I recorded consecutively several stereo tracks. The final song was then mastered with a bit EQ and compression on some tracks and some limiting on the master track."
