The Perfect Pad | Twin Peaks Breakdown w/Roland JX-8P, Juno-106 & Jupiter-8

video by Espen Kraft

"The best music to any TV-series in my opinion. Only rivalled by the Miami Vice soundtrack. The synthesizers used in this video are Roland JX-8P, Juno-106 and Jupiter-8. And a touch of Alpha Juno 2 that does the signature bass line in the climax, it's mixed pretty low though.

I've made a version that is not a note for note copy of the beautiful Angelo Badalamenti original, but a free interpretation of how I remember it.
It's also a Roland fest, where I use no other synths than the JX-8P, which is also used for the pad/strings in the original (MKS-70 though), the Roland Juno-106 for the muted bells in the build up and the Jupiter-8 for the bass/piano and solo, but I use the arpeggio and play the arpeggio in a slightly off-beat way, which I show.
All played and recorded by hand, no MIDI involved except for sending a clock pulse to trigger the arp of the Jupiter-8. This comes from the DAW as MIDI and is converted in a Doepfer MSY2 that converts it to a clock/trigger pulse feeding the Jupiter-8.

The first 3 minutes are filmed with a Panasonic M7 VHS camera from 1987 and ripped over to the computer. The edit is done in Premiere Pro. All my demo songs with videos will be shot on VHS from now on. Mostly. Tutorials and breakdowns will still be in HD or half HD. I don't own any 4K cameras nor do I feel I need it. My videos will not be optimized for mobile phones in the near future either. I recommend watching my VHS videos on a CRT monitor. ;-)"
