"Delights of Kyoto" - Akai MPC + Roland SH4d + Roland OpSix + Arturia MiniFreak +

video upload by Patrick Manderson

"'Delights of Kyoto' was recorded live late Saturday afternoon on 3/2/2024 using a MIDI sequencer and a room full of synthesizers and audio gear. All automation was programmed into the Akai MPC X. Some manual tweaks on the Midas console was made during recording.

Inspired by YouTube videos of Japanese restaurants and diners - 'Kyoto' was developed using the Roland SH4d as a drum synthesizer, paired with my usual synthesized drum kit on the Korg Radias and some excellent Hydrasynth patches developed by @Jexus. Voice synthesis on the Arturia MINIFREAK and various pads, plucks, stabs and noises provided by the Sequential REV2, Roland JP-8080, Korg OpSix among others.

The most significant addition to this music is a careful degree of live mixing using the Midas Venice F24 running a stereo mix through the Warm Audio Bus Compressor.
