Martin Hannett choral sound research May 10, 2020

Published on May 10, 2020 SynthMania

"Like many other people, I've been fascinated by the haunting 'synth chorus' in Joy Division songs like 'Decades' and "The Eternal" since I first heard the Closer album in the mid '80s. I started a research on how to attempt at replicating it. Unfortunately, the TEQ eq I used - even if period-correct - doesn't give me the resonance needed to reproduce the sound. I will try to get different EQs / filter banks of the era and experiment with those later. The Marshall Time Modulator settings should be in the ballpark a bit. I used the Quadraverb for convenience, although in the next videos I'd like to mic a real reverberant space."
