Solar Orbiter – A Space Music Synth Jam

YouTube Preview Image

Sunday Synth Jam: Here’s a mellow synth jam, via Andy Barrow, that brings to mind the space rock and synth music of the 70s.

Barrow shared these technical details on the piece, Solar Orbiter:

We start off with a brief intro using the Voyager XL and then the music begins with the Radias (Pads and the Lead Synth part way through the video) and the Moog Slim Phatty being used for the rhythm.

I then bring the XL in to play a moody lead synth (2 Osc’s used, the second used primarily for harmonic content). The Radias takes over later on and then we finish with Moog Slim Phatty and the Voyager XL.
