Ambient Set - Take 5, Wavestate, Microcosm, Big Sky - Tefty & Meems

video upload by Tefty & Meems

"The @Hologram Electronics Microcosm looping has been great for ambient music. Did this set basically improvised utilizing the Microcosm's looper. The @strymon Big Sky tied the sounds together post looper. The instrumental and Meems voice were multi tracked to Ableton Live for a mix a few weeks later. Both the @Korg Wavestate and @Sequential Take 5 were patched into a mixer that was patching the audio to the Microcosm. This allowed for capturing loops from both the Take 5 and Wavestate as desired.

Also, during the mix phase, we sent Meems vox back into the Microcosm for another layer of dreamy dimension into the mix. You hear it more on the second and third track as extra 'phantom voices'."

Roland JP-8000 - trancy signature sound of the 90ies

video upload by synthlegends

"The Roland JP-8000 came out 1997 as the first VA-Synth of Roland. It had the very famous super saw waveform on board, a saw consisting of 8 saw waves slightly detuned, which is adjustable with a fader in live performance. It also had a very distinctive digital delay and chorus plus equalizer, which gave the synth its typical signature sound. The JP-8000 was the style maker für trance music. Still today it is very sought after and Behringer just made a small clone named JT-4000 for only EUR 49,--.

The JP-8000 doesn't sound like an analog synth at all. The resonance of the filter sounds very cold, there is a lot of aliasing, the tone can sound quite harsh and industrial, nevertheless with the super saw and a lot of internal delay you get very powerful pads and dreamy textures out of it. This synth is difficult to compare with others. Maybe a bit with the VA engine of the V-Synth, although I find the V-Synth in this respect inferiour.

In this video I start with some own created split sounds I used in my last band, it is followed by some solo sounds and arpeggiated lines. It ends with some trancy pad sounds.

The effects are great on the JP-8000, nevertheless I used only very little of reverb of the GFI Sepcualar reverb. Beside this, there is no additional processing.

Enjoy the video and have fun!"

Patch of The Week: Blade Runner / Vangelis CS-80 Sounds - Gemini Trilogy Part 3

video upload by AJH Synth Official

AJH Synth Official Patch of The Week series

"3 Variations of a patch based on the sounds from the original 1982 Blade Runner movie, which were originally created on a Yamaha CS-80 by the composer Vangelis. This version uses a monophonic setup with the AJH Synth Gemini 2412 dual VCF.

This is Part 3, see Part 1 & 2 of this series featuring the Gemini - Part 2 features brass sounds, partly derived from this patch, but loosely inspired by Jean-Michel Jarre (Oxygene) and other 1970's-80's sounds. Part 1 features a simple performance bringing versions of the sounds from both parts 2 & 3 together.

The CS-80 was fully polyphonic, and has remained hugely expensive to this day. It used two 'channels' per voice, each being a complete 2-VCO synth voice in itself, with both a high pass and low pass filter in series (HP into LP). It's known for having an exceptionally bright sound, which is difficult to match.

The Gemini 2412 is a dual multi-mode filter, each having low pass, band pass, high pass, and variable LP/HP, along with Dual (both filters mixed in parallel) and Cascade modes (first filter into second filter). Both filters are connected to a voltage-controlled cross-fader, or can be used as 2 entirely separate VCF's. It's based on the VCF from the original Oberheim SEM module, but also has a high-resonance option selectable by jumpers of the rear of the module, which is capable self-oscillation.
