MJ’s “Beat It” - Hidden Machine Gun Sound

video upload by Anthony Marinelli Music

"In this Video I’ll show you how I made the 'Machine Gun Sound' in MJ’s 'Beat It'. It’s kind of a hidden sound, but it serves an important purpose in the orchestration of the song to create tension and energy just before Eddie Van Halen’s iconic guitar solo. This is one of many examples of the nuances that can be found in the arrangements of the songs on the album.

We’ll also shine the spotlight on Thriller engineer Bruce Swedien’s ability to know when and how to use a sound like this and when to get it out of the picture to create space for other sounds. This concepts can be applied to any style of music you are creating.

I made the original sound using an ARP 2600 & Dr. Click but you can re-create this sound on your VST with less effort.

More than an 8-trick pony
Lush 2's multilayer architecture gives you access to virtually limitless sound design possibilities and a wide spectrum of applications.

Powerful, yet practical. An easy-to-tweak instrument that helps you find hit sounds in seconds, unleashing its and your maximum potential

Lush 2 isn’t based on just a single machine; it’s built from modules that can be found in many modern virtual synths, combined into one compact, logical layout. Don’t let its looks fool you: though it may look benign at first, its modular, multi-layer architecture takes it beyond simplistic poly-synths to the top shelf of extremely powerful, deeply programmable and devilishly versatile instruments in your arsenal. Suspiciously accurate sound is achieved only through experience: countless hours were spent analyzing classic analogue synthesizers, and then designing and implementing DSP algorithms with close attention to every component in the signal path - not just approximating its overall output. We deliver to you a synth built on oscillators of uncompromising quality, filters with an incredibly natural warmth and character, and best-in-class effects. On top of that, with all of the layers, multi-layer options, and routing capabilities the plugin offers - there’s no end to what you can do with just a single instance of Lush 2

Lush 2 lets you reach “unheard of” levels of creativity - each layer works as an independent synthesizer with its own polyphony, parameters, enhanced arp, and a choice between 8 of the finest insert effects.

Modulation matrix
An entire page dedicated to assigning your modulation to nearly any parameter - pick a source, pick a destination, set an amount: creative modulation!

Lush 2 also comes complete with a powerful built-in mixer, complete with layer-independent parametric equalizers and compressors that can be rearranged. Volume, pan and superb send effects allow you to put the finishing touches on the final output.

Synth Stuff Ep. 57 - E-mu Emax SE

Published on Jun 15, 2019 tritonrecordings

"There were many versions of the original gray Emax sampler. The SE added onboard synthesis. The originals are the more sought after model due to the analog filters as the Emax II had digital ones. Personally I like both can't say I really have a preference. Is it worth getting one of these? That's up to you - but this makes a great alternative to the great but costly Emulator and Emulator II. it would be interesting of someone came out with a new keyboard sampler. I'd love to sample my vintage synths or VST's so I can use the sounds live without the use of a laptop..."

Live Synthesizer Jam 55 : Teenage Engineering PO-12, Microkorg, Nexus 2, Sylenth1, GarageBand.

Published on Nov 29, 2016 Todd Smith

"Band Camp Link -

This is a early version of a work in progress. I plan to play with muting and add variations in the piano sound. I'm thinking of using hardware synths with the same midi sequence as the piano for the 2nd 1/2 of the song.

I'm using a build up I've used many times in previous hardware jams but using Ableton to expand the idea. Again, this is a very early version. The idea will be expanded and worked on a lot more in the future.

The current version is all VST synthesizer sounds. The VST's used are Nexus 2, Sylenth1 and Garage Band. Teenage Engineering PO-12 is layered for the drums. I plan on adding more hardware sounds into the next version.

All sequencing and effects comes from Ableton Live. Effects are all Waves VST and include the SuperTap6 9 (Delay) IR1 (Reverb) and Infected Mushroom Pusher.

Aenemon (original mix)

Aenemon (original mix) by alienrobotdance

Bass sound: Juno 60. I've sent a very low sinus osc through it's filter and that is what's modulating the filter.
Higher sharper sound: Korg Poly 800.
Other sounds: JX3P

Drums are various samples. Snare is a layered 707. Kick is 808 + 707. Hihats and perc are 707 and 727, other sounds are sampled from various loops (mostly from vinyl)."

"This track was made last week: 'Go!'

Everyhting I make is with analog synths. No vst's are used at all.

I also put up some old tracks collected in the album 'Give Me Your Analog' for download here:

My blog is still updated regularly. You can find it here:"
