Saturday night session: Rhodes Mark 1 Stage piano and Sequential Prophet 10

video by MIDERA

"First - let me apologize, the video is pretty bad/bright. Maybe just don't watch the video. Tab over and do something else while you listen...

Anyway, I rearranged my studio (you probably wouldn't notice) and installed the Avion Studios Retro Flyer preamp into the Rhodes (with - I must admit, a lot of headaches, most likely due to my own incompetence). Needless to say - it's all hooked up and the tremolo you're hearing is coming straight from the Retro Flyer preamp.

I thought I might enjoy the Prophet 10 on top, but I'm not so sure about it. I've actually still had a lot of trouble fitting this into my studio. I think I just do way better with FX riddled synths. I'm not sure what it is. The Prophet hasn't made its way into any of my music really.

In the first piece (made up) - I use both of them. Maybe some sort of slow funk? I'm just not much of a pianist to really claim how to make this sort of music, but hey, it was kinda fun and that was the point.

The second track is something I made back in 2011, on a rainy day in April. I recall I wrote it when I was feeling very sad about my Dad having passed the year before. I really enjoy playing this, but I do really like the original, which you can listen to here: [embed below]

The third track is The Great Pumpkin Waltz by Vince Guaraldi.

The final track was just me messing around, I didn't have any idea what I was playing when I sat down, and that becomes obvious pretty immediately...
