Korg M3R - The M1's super little brother

video upload by Espen Kraft

"The Korg M3R. The little brother module of M1, both from the late 80s and classic synthesizers from the era with some iconic sounds like THE house piano, bass and organ.

The demo song was a challenge as the drums inside the M3R are very crisp and not very dense low end. I had to layer, process, eq and compress to make the kick beefy enough and a combination of that kick and some snares makes out the final snare in the track. Again, layered, eq'ed and compressed.
The pads in the verses are made by multi tracking several pads and detuning them track by track. Just good old fashioned mixing.
The vocals are from a vocal sample download I bought many years ago and after all these years they finally came to life. The vocals are heavily pitched, stretched and manipulated to sound they way they do.
The demo song has loads of Valhalla VintageVerb on it, but the patch examples in the last part of the video uses only effects from the M3R, no external effects at all on these."
