Mike Olfield's Tubular Bells (Theme from The Exorcist) performed on the Roland System 8 synthesizer

Published on Oct 26, 2019 Sean Christopher Evoking Emotion with Synthesizers

"Mike Oldfield's brilliant Tubular Bells album, released in 1973 was pure music genius in mine and many others opinions. The intro to part 1 was especially a favorite of mine and others.

Tubular Bells is the debut studio album by English multi-instrumentalist, composer and songwriter Mike Oldfield, released on 25 May 1973 as the first album on Virgin Records. Oldfield, then 19 years old, played almost all the instruments on the mostly instrumental album. The album initially sold slowly, but gained worldwide attention in December 1973 when its opening theme was used for the soundtrack to the horror film The Exorcist (1973). This led to a surge in sales which increased Oldfield's profile and played an important part in the growth of the Virgin Group. It stayed in the top ten of the UK Albums Chart for one year from March 1974, during which it reached number one for one week. It peaked at number three on the US Billboard 200, and reached the top position in Canada and Australia. The album has sold over 2.7 million copies in the UK and an estimated 15 million worldwide.

I did this arrangement on the Roland System 8 and multitracked to Cubase 10 Pro. I tried my best to stay true to the original 1973 version and the System 8 was the perfect choice for the task."

Phase 2019.1 Novation Summit Polysynth with Oto Bam Reverb

Published on Oct 26, 2019 -CALC-

"I improvised this piece a couple of years ago whilst jamming with the Preen FM2 through the Schulte Compact A Phaser clone I built (hence the name Phase) I've always wanted to make a video of it with Summit so I relearned arrangement last night and here it is.

I tried to get this Summit patch as close as I could to the original Preen sound. This is not too far off at all, especially with the Dual filter in parallel LP modes this is remarkably not too far off the Schulte phaser sound on the original too.

I also took the plunge and got an OTO Bam.... WOW!
The reverb on Summit is wonderful, so clean and precise, its one of my favourite aspects of the synth but with the OTO Bam it is totally different, completely lush and a ton of character. Just beautiful

I may even do another video playing the Preen patch for comparison. If you want to see that leave a comment below.

First prize to those that spot the visual easter egg as well ;o)"

Rossum Panharmonium Explained by Learning Modular

Rossum Panharmonium 1/2: explained Published on Oct 26, 2019 Learning Modular

Don't miss Part 2 below.

"The Rossum Electro-Music Panharmonium Mutating Spectral Resynthesizer is a very unusual signal processing module: It studies the incoming signal, breaks it down into its most dominate frequency components, and assigns those to a bank of up to 33 oscillators to re-create (re-synthesize). You can choose which band(s) of frequencies to analyze and how often that analysis happens, and on the output side transpose it, blur it, decide what core waveform us used for the resynthesis, and perform other “mutating” functions including feedback looping.

This first movie gives an overview of how Panharmonium works. It does not dive into every individual feature (there’s a great manual that already does that); this is intended to give you an understanding of how it works, and to quickly get you up to speed using it:

Roland JD-XA - Sounds, Presets & Ambient Soundscapes | Synth Demo

Published on Oct 26, 2019 synth4ever

"Roland JD-XA synthesizer demo featuring sounds, presets and ambient soundscapes. This Roland JDXA synth demo showcases various sounds & patches including ambient pads, sequencer, leads and atmospheric textures. This Roland JD-XA demo was filmed at the Roland Inspiration Centre in Toronto, Canada.

The Roland JD-XA is a unique crossover hybrid synth that combines analog and digital engines into a single instrument. The analog engine features four parts and true analog filters and a direct dry output. The digital engine features four parts and is powered by Roland’s SuperNATURAL synth technology with 64-voice polyphony, plus effects.

The Roland JD-XA’s dual engines can be used independently or together to unlock versatile sound design capabilities. The JDXA features discrete analog with 2 x OSC, Filter, Amp, 4 x Env (2 x Pitch, Filter, Amp), and 2 x LFO per voice plus Analog Dry Out for raw signal output.

The Roland JD-XA's analog filter section is selectable 4-Pole, transistor-ladder, and multi-mode (LPF/HPF/BPF). The analog OSC section includes Cross Mod, Ring Mod, and OSC Sync, all of which can be used simultaneously and the LFO rate covers a wide range from ultra-slow to ultra-fast

The Roland JDXA's digital engine is compatible with INTEGRA-7 sound libraries from Roland’s online Axial sound portal, and digital parts can be routed through the analog filter. A comprehensive effects section with MFX (67 different effect types) for all parts, plus five system effects (Reverb, TFX1, TFX2, Delay, and Master EQ), provides additional sound shaping options.

Furthermore, the Roland JD-XA has a 16-track real-time or step sequencer (64 steps) with 8 tracks for internal parts, and 8 tracks for external parts. It also features onboard USB, MIDI, and CV/GATE interfaces plus flexible MIDI control functionality. In addition, there is a mic input and vocoder capability as well.

The Roland JD-XA is a versatile and deep synth which allows for extensive creative control and sound design. The ability to work with both digital and analog engines and route them in different configurations allows for new types of sounds to be explored from a variety of angles."

Terminator Theme Synthesizer Cover

Published on Oct 26, 2019 RemixSample

"Minilogue Patches:

This is my attempt at the classic Terminator Theme on KORG Minilogue. I recorded everything 'live' so no sequencing and that's why it sounds sloppy (^≗ω≗^) The track is made up of a pad section, two leads and a percussive sound. You can download the three Minilogue patches on My Patreon.

I used a lot of effects to make the leads sound like I wanted them too. Soundtoys Decapitator & Crystallizer. I also used Valhalla Shimmer & Valhalla Room. Also applied Multiband compression eq."

Patch of the Week 29: minilogue xd + external Eurorack Sample+Hold
