Choices (Berlin School Synth Jam)

Sunday Synth Jam: This video captures a live Berlin School style synth jam, Choices, by synthesist Martin Peters.

Technical details below.

I was determined to do something different but then this sequence came up and I could not resist.

The music begins with a 6-step sequence on row 1 of the Doepfer MAQ16/3 driving the Ian Fritz Teezer Through-Zero VCO which sawtooth output is modulated by the GCS Steiner filter and drives the Blacet Miniwave. This produces a modulated sound on the MiniWave. Then a 6-step sequence on row 2 of the MAQ16/3 driving the self-built Modular joins in.

The Q960 sequencer is shifted by a 16-step pattern on row 3 of the Doepfer MAQ16/3 where not all steps are active. Then a Mellotron strings bass is played on the Roland XP-80 were after the Waldorf Q Keyboard comes in with a string sound.

The solos are performed on the Clavia Nord Lead 1 which output is lead through a Zoom G1 effect device. I noticed a few minor glitches in the audio after I rendered the video which are also in the original audio. I will try to correct that later on for the mp3 file on my website using the multi-track recording.

You can download/see/hear the video and music from my website.

  1. Another beautiful piece of music form Mr. Peters. It's fun to watch what he's doing and try to figure out which device does what, and read about the gear on his website.

  2. Definitely.

    It's like getting being backstage at a Tangerine Dream show, back when they still did this sort of thing.
