This video kind of starts where my last video ‘Vernal Season’ left off.

It begins with a 4-step sequence on the Synthesizers.com Q960 with only step 1, 3 and 4 active on the Q963 trigger bus. During the song I alternate between the 3 rows of the Q960 using the Q962 sequential switch. The Q960 drives the Rob Hordijk OSC HRM, one Synthesizers.com Q106 VCO and the Ian Fritz Teezer Through-Zero VCO connected to the Blacet Miniwave.

The Mellotron strings, played on the Roland XP-80, joins and after that a 4-step sequence on row one of the Doepfer MAQ16/3 driving the Creamware MiniMax ASB. An 8-step sequence from the MAQ16/3 driving the self-built Modular joins after that.

The Klaus Schulze like S&H percussion comes from the Waldorf Q Keyboard. The solo’s are performed on the Clavia Nord Lead 1.

Sunday Synth Jam: Here’s a mellow synth jam, via Martin Peters (attorks), Vernal Season.

Here’s what he has to say about it:

The video begins with two 8-step sequences: one sequence on row 2 of the Doepfer MAQ16/3 which is driving the self-built Modular and one sequence on the Synthesizers.com Q960 which is driving the Rob Hordijk OSC HRM and the Ian Fritz Teezer Through-Zero VCO connected to the Blacet Miniwave.

The bass is performed on the Clavia Nord Lead 1, the Mellotron strings sound is played on the Roland XP-80 and the Wurlitzer piano sound on the Waldorf Q Keyboard. Later on a 4 step sequence from row 1 of the MAQ16/3 driving the Creamware MiniMax ASB joins.

Berlin School Synth Jam

Sunday Synth Jam: This video captures a Berlin school style synth jam and improvisaton, via attorks, A Smooth Theme:

Kind of inspired by DoctorVague and Ian Boddy (when in Red Shift), I am experimenting with Ableton Live to see if it can be a help in analog sequencing.

I have 2 MIDI tracks and 1 track with a drum loop. One MIDI track controls the self-built Modular and the 2nd MIDI track the Creamware MiniMax ASB.

Both MIDI tracks have several clips with looping 8 step sequence in different keys. But I have not found out how to change the clip of the 2 MIDI track at the same time and at the right bar so I click the clip on each track which causes the odd discrepancy in clips/keys and changing too soon; sorry for that.

The melody is performed on the Roland XP-80 with a Mellotron voice. The Waldorf is doing what a Waldorf is good at; making these Waldorf sounds. The soloing is done on the Clavia Nord Lead 1 with an organ-type voice.

Berlin School Style Sequenced Synth Jam

Sunday Synth Jam: Here’s a little something for the fans of Berlin School electronic music – a nice sequenced synth jam, via attorks:

This theme is inspired by an arpeggiator from the Waldorf Q keyboard which I programmed as sequence to be performed by the Q. At first you hear a bass-like sound from the Creamware MiniMax ASB. After that the Synthesizers.com Modular and the self built Modular are added. At last the sequence from the Waldorf Q Keyboard is added. By varying the decay on the Q the sound becomes more lively.

The accompaniment is played on the Clavia Nord Lead 1 and the Roland XP-80.

My 25th video upload to YouTube so a little anniversary!

A symphonic theme this time and did it all in 1 take. At first you hear a sequence from the Synthesizers.com Modular driven by row 1 of the Doepfer MAQ16/3. After that the volume is turned up for the sequence from the self built Modular driven by MAQ’s row 2. The 3rd sequence comes from the Creamware MiniMax ASB which is driven by MAQ’s row 3. The bassline and the melodies are performed on the AKAI AX80 and the Clavia Nord Lead 1.
