Walkabout at the Synthesized event, Cambridge


video upload by MIDI IN

"I wasn't able to do the usual musical Sunday video this week, I was at the Synthesized event at the Centre for Computing History in Cambridge.
Tony the organiser had caught everyone for interviews which will be on the museum's own channel here: (link when available)
So I just picked a quiet moment for a walkabout to show the variety of musical technology on display."

Alesis HR-16 drum machine: From studio staple to forgotten classic

video upload by Justin Joe

"Check out why I think this is a sleeper of a classic drum machine!"



Linn Drum modded HR-16 pics and list of sounds via this listing:
[EPROMs only further below]

"Modded with sounds from The Linn Drum, LM-1 & Linn9000

This drum machine is so underrated with its 12-bit sounding crunch.

Its was advertised as a 16bit drum machine in the 80's and the DAC are 16 bit but the sample roms are not which is nice because it has that crunch we all appreciate and love these days.

Thankfully though the Eproms were replaceable and with a bit of programming this one has had all the stock sounds replaced with sounds from all the legendary Linn Drum Series of drum machines.

Now it can really shine with the 4 individual outs, powerful sequencer (swing, microtiming) and 16 voice polyphony this is now a classic sleeper of a drum machine"

Running a LinnDrum Through Pedals and a Neve Console | Funky Vintage Found on Reverb


video upload by Reverb

"Created by Roger Linn and employed by artists from Prince to New Order and beyond, the LinnDrum has become one of the most expensive vintage drum machines on the used market. Luckily, our friends at Synth City at Rock n Roll Vintage in Chicago had a mint condition LinnDrum they were willing to let us borrow. So, we took it over to Narwhal Studios, threw some pedals on it and recorded it into a Neve console. How do you think it sounds?"

Download the FREE Sample Pack.

Special thanks to Synth City/Rock n Roll Vintage.

Filmed and Recorded at Narwhal Studios.

Genesis Tonight, Tonight, Tonight ~ Vintage Synthesizer Recreation ~ RetroSound


video upload by RetroSound

"(c)2007-24 by RetroSound
supported by UVI: http://bit.ly/retrosound-uvi

❤️ Support #RetroSound​ channel: https://retrosound.creator-spring.com

One of my favorite tracks from the 80s.
Tonight, Tonight, Tonight by Genesis (1986)
Written by Tony Banks, Phil Collins and Mike Rutherford
Invisible Touch album

featured the Yamaha DX7 II FD, the Moog Taurus bass pedal, Linndrum and Simmons Drums

This cover song series contains my own recreations of my favourite songs from the last 50 years. The original music from which I take inspiration belong to their respective owners. I recreate tracks only for personal passion and to pay homage to these tracks.
My intention is not to create covers that sound exactly like the original (if you want to hear identical sounds, please listen the original). It's more of an inspiration with my sounds from the old synthesizers from the past and of course the great appreciation for the original performers and producers.
Check out the original songs with the original artists here on YouTube.
Thank you."

Linn LM1 80s beats on iPad part 1: Prince, Sharon Redd, Human League, Michael Jackson and others


video upload by harlemnightsmusic

"Tracklist:

* Prince - Kiss
* Morris Day - Dance Electric
* Vanity 6 - Nasty Girl
* Colonel Abrams - Not Gonna Let
* Sharon Redd - Love How You Feel
* Human League - Don't You Want Me
* Sharon Redd - Beat The Street
* Prince - 1999
* Flash & the Pan - Midnight Man
* Michael Jackson - Thriller
* Michael Jackson - Wanna Be Startin' Somethin'
* Gary's gang - Runaway
* Morris Day - Jungle Love
* Vanity 6 - Sex Shooter
* Gary Low - You Are A Danger
* Human League - Do Or Die
* Prince - 777 9311
* Prince - When Doves Cry
* Prince - I Would Die 4U
* Human League - Open Your Heart

In 2009 I recreated many favorite 80s drumbeats on the then new Korg Electribe samplers, sampling the Linndrum, Oberheim DMX, Roland CR78, TR808 and more. I copied the patterns by ear and also tried to catch the vibe of each original track as much as possible, using only the internal EQ and sampler fx. Later I expanded the series to synthesizer medleys and full tracks. It led me to a lot of contacts, collaborations and releases.

Now I wanted to reboot this in portable music production. Jim Audo's GR16 iPad app felt very much like the Electribe SX in use. So I started transferring my old beats to the newer medium, improved and expanded them to do another series of classic drumbeats, to inspire new music.

The Novation Launchpad Pro Mk3 integrates well with it and gives more tactile feel to it, as with the Electribes. It's however not necessary to use it.

The result is a great sounding retro beat machine that now even fits on an iPhone.

And yes, that's an LM2 at the back, not LM1.

Enjoy
