Suiko ST-20 & Strymon BigSky // Dreamy Japanese Sound (short sound demo + jam)


video upload by Dexba

"I am always been fascinated by Asian instruments, and in fact, I even own and play an original koto.
So, when I found out these Suiko things existed, I immediately felt the need of owning one.
It came from Japan, it's vintage (seems like they where produced in small number during the 80s) and it sounds kinda awful without reverb, to be honest.
The koto sound is quite harsh, and it doesn't really sound like a real koto, since it has no polyphony, no way to 'prepare' the pitch bend, no velocity sensitivity, and the overall sound is quite poor.
Then there is the flute, quite a nice one, and a very screaming organ that gets annoying pretty soon.
But, as soon as you add a reverb, possibly a good one, you get back some sort of polyphony, you iron out the roughness, and even the limitations can become useful tools!
Enjoy! ✨"

Return Trip Effect - Introducing Suiko ST10video upload by



via this auction

"The rare ST-10 is the big brother to famous Suiko ST-50 and was designed to accompany poetry. It has only 3 traditional Japanese instrument sounds, shakuhachi, koto and pipe organ. The samples are clean and sound fantastic with some reverb or other effects. But while it lacks the many instrumental sounds of its younger siblings, it makes up for it with its retro wood-panel styling, integrated speaker and onboard cassette tape sequencer. The data cassette player is used to record and playback note data in sequence, and the instruments can be changed during playback. Tested and 100% functional, this ST-10 comes in the original tolex hard travel case with manual. Power is 100V, and while a stepdown converter is not needed, it is recommended."

More obscure Japanese gear.

"All Hail the Eye tone

"See your pitch!"

Manufactured by Fuji Chemical Industry Co., Ltd., the Eye tone is an aide to vocal training - plug in a microphone to get visual feedback via it's 2 lamp system. One shows you are within range, the other lights up when you are 'spot on'.

This function, however, lends itself well to monitoring drones. Here, I use it to track pitch coming from a variable speed tape player as I attempt to glide between tones and 'enhance my multi-tasking abilities' beyond their infancy.

Sounds:
O2 Minipops
Hougaku Conductor with step sequencer
2 cassette tape players modified for variable speed:
- one playing a drone, the other birdsong
Suiko ST20 - Shakuhachi/Koto/Pipe Organ 'synth'

Effects:
Aria spring reverb on O2 Minipops
Lots of Korg SDD-3300 on the cassette players
The Hougaku Conductor runs through a Roland VX-66 Echo Mixer and the Suiko ST20 through an ELK EM-13 Analog Echo, before the main mixer"

Visitors - KOTO cover by Asteroid Killer


Published on Feb 13, 2020 AsteroidKillerMusic

"Tribute Thursday!

This video is a tribute to the legendary italo disco group - KOTO

In this short version of their great hit Visitors, I'm using the Carbon sequencer to sequence the bass. The different melodies was played live except the small counter part after the second main riff witch was sequenced on the Matrix Brute and started manually by trigger a key and stopped with a foot pedal. Everything was recorded live in one go to Ableton. The reverb was added in post.

Bass - Moog Grandmother
Main riff - Roland SH101
Second and third melody - Moog Sub37
Counterpart to the third melody - Arturia Matrix Brute
Bridge to the break - ARP Odyssey
Drums - Roland TR707
Sequencer - Kilpatrick Audio Carbon
Reverb - OTO BAM

Original song was recorded and released by KOTO in 1985."
