Using MakeNoise Modular Synths to Cover Radiohead

video by Koboto Music

"I used my MakeNoise Shared System (along with some other modules) to re-create my favorite Radiohead song. For the video aspect, I tried my best to demonstrate the various modular techniques that I used for this production. The main synth line was originally performed on the Prophet 5 so some tracking was needed on the MakeNoise to achieve a similar polyphony.

On an interesting note...

considering polyphony...

it took me 10 tracks of the MakeNoise to cover all of the overlapping notes in the synth line. So, it's essentially acting as a Prophet 10 as opposed to the Prophet 5 that was originally used. I found that the added polyphony adds a lot of "mud" to the mix and that the original sounds a lot cleaner to me. I guess there's an argument that "less is more" at times when it comes to polyphony in Synthesizers."
