Sunday Synth Jam: It’s not uncommon to see synthesists with massive modular synths take musical inspiration from some of the pioneers of the so-called Berlin School style, like Klaus Schulze and Tangerine Dream.
This video, via Sequentonal, demonstrates that you don’t need the massive modular rig to work in the Berlin School style. He does it using relatively affordable gear, including a Roland JD-Xi, Arturia MicroBrute, Korg Volca Sample and Volca Keys.
Here’s what he has to say about the technical details:
The JDxi is taking care of the Bass Sequence for a change, and imho it seems to be doing it cleaner than the Brute, so I might stick with that for the future.
Another first, No Stereo Delay! 🙂 Instead the MX200 is being used in Dual Channel mode, Mono Delay on one channel and Pitch -12 on the other.
