OB-6: Improv in Ab

Published on Jun 29, 2019 Kris Lennox

"Listen to that. Beautiful. Every time I turn on the Obi, music emanates from it. The thing plays itself. The sound from the OB-6 is instant beauty; it is almost impossible to make a bad sound on it. The included patch is one I use quite often: not a stock patch, but one I spent a good while creating (the same patch was used two videos ago on the DFAM/guitar jam).

What a mellow sound. Liszt was of the opinion that Ab was 'the key of love', and he frequently used the key when writing love songs/ballads (i.e his famous Liebestraume #3, among others). It certainly is mellow.

Whilst the video was processing, I was thinking RE 'synth therapy'. Listening to this kind of music certainly chills the mood. Playing this kind of music even more so. Perhaps what we need for world peace is for leaders to jam on an instrument. Or what may be easier would be modular. I propose the UN have a modular wall, and each day, two countries get together and design a patch.

Musicians can have their quirks. For sure. However: I don't know about you, but I've never wanted to blow up fellow musicians.
Especially so ones who I've worked with on patches.

Imagine if Trump and the Ayatollah worked on a patch together. "How can we fight? Listen to the patch we made!". Both the patch design process and finished patch could be televised. I haven't watched TV in a decade or so, but I'd certainly get a TV/tune in to the Political Patch channel.

Modular walls for world peace :)

Back to reality: yes, great sound. Nothing added to the sound post-pro, aside from a fade at the end.

All best
