Upper Voice has tuning issues on the lower register of the keyboard while on the upper register, the tuning is stable.

Lower Voice has tuning issues on the upper register of the keyboard while on the lower register, the tuning is stable.

Space Queen - Kitaro 喜多郎 COVER

video upload by ltpstan

"A Kitaro jamming session on 14th December with one of the only Kitaro fan I personally know in Singapore and has been a great buddy of mine since 2016. Here is one of our impromptu performance of 'Space Queen' without rehearsal. Here, we did not rehearse before hand but all was in the moment of performance since a long time. This meet up we brought our vintage 700S and 800DV out to a jamming studio and it was great fun! Thank you WK!"

'Tumba Dance' from 'Ancient' Lead Preset - KITARO

video upload by ltpstan

"'Tumba Dance' is one of my favorite songs from this album.
For a long time, I have been curious about the interesting Lead Sound. I think I have finally come very close to the Original Sound.

It seems to be using the Second Oscillator as Duet Mode, in tune with the Triangle Oscillator with the Travel Vibrato turned on. Expand and Bright is turned on to trigger that filter sound when Travel Vibrato is turned on. The Depth is being played around during the recording to give the wobble filter sound. I believe this process is manually created.

In this 700FS, I am able to program the Joystick to trigger the Vibrato Depth which is much easier to control.

Edit: After playing around more, I think the 'Singing' parameter should be longer to get the brighter resonant tone."

As The Wind Blows 吹く風のままに | Kitaro 喜多郎 COVER

video upload by ltpstan

"A project I have thought of doing for a long time. In the past, I have repeatedly listened to this piece and really liked the second harmony from the 700S.
Finally, I have managed to put together what I think is made up of all the components of this song after referencing the song many times.

Some of the bell resonance in the introduction was created using the organ plugin with a touch of leslie speaker to give a 'ringing' tone. The introduction also features the 700S with increasing Vibrato and Depth.

In the Second Chorus, there is also an Organ with Leslie, in which the original piece, you will hear the increasing speed of the rotary.

This cover will show the many components of the 700S which I really enjoyed reproducing!

Instrument List
- Lead
- Drone with Vibrato
- Introduction/Ending Arppeggio
- Second Lead
- Accompanying Arpeggio

"I always have a bad habit of not finishing projects and have forgotten about it. Here is one of them which I thought was very ambitious to complete it as close to original sounds. Currently, I am still working on 'Strength'."

Demo - Strength KITARO COVER

video upload by ltpstan

"'Strength' is something I have been listening for quite some time. The more I listen, the more I feel the melody and the energy of the piece. It is a very unique piece with very interesting chord progression. My favourite rendition is the Live version from Chicago 1999. The drums beats and the whole piece somehow worked well for my liking.

This is something I have been working on the past few days.

The layout of the track has been completed only. Sounds and editing has a long way to go."

"AQUA, another good piece to demonstrate Kitaro's signature sound from the miniKORG 700S/FS.

Inspiration came from the recent live recording of Kitaro. One of the thoughts and observations is that, AQUA has been in played many times live by Kitaro since the 1980s. Possibly, it is one of the pieces Kitaro likes performing.

One of the feelings I have noticed is that, AQUA has alot of mysterious elements, in a way of the chord progression. It is also one of the Kitaro pieces that allows much more emotional expressiveness through the melodies.

The initial release from 'Oasis' album has a rather straight tone but over the years of re-covers by Kitaro, this song has evolved to become more expressive than the first initial release.

In this cover, I chose the 'Harp' sound and the Squar-ish sound from different variations of AQUA. Keeping some of the familiar melodies of AQUA with variation and improvisation. improvisation is something I try to always work on.

Today's playing had a few dexterity issues."
