This video demonstrates some lovely phased Eminent 310U style strings, improvising on Jean Michel Jarre’s Equinoxe Part 2.
Equinoxe part II. Original music composed by Jean Michel Jarre.
This video is here only to show the Korg Radias doing quite a passable emulation of the phased strings created by passing the sound of the Eminent 310U through an Electro Harmonix Small Stone phaser.
This is the swirling string sound that helped define Jean Michel Jarre’s first two hit albums, Oxygene and Equinoxe.
No external effects were used, only those on the Radias.
I don’t play it note for note, it’s only to give you an idea of how good the emulation is.
It’s not a standard preset I use, you need to download the Radias Heaven presets – by Rune Foshaug. The preset I used was called 1976.
What do you think? Does it capture the classic Eminent 310U sound?
