In his latest video, synthesist Espen Kraft shares his take on The Terminator Theme, from Brad Fiedel’s soundtrack to the 1984 film, The Terminator.
And his take on The Terminator Theme is to turn it into a slow jam.
“I’ve always wanted to make an arrangement of the classic Terminator theme in a more romantic or nostalgic way,” he says.
The video starts with his arrangement of the classic theme, and then moves on to demonstrating the set of Korg DSS-1 sounds that he used.
Here’s what he has to say about the technical details:
“The Korg DSS-1 is the Terminator among samplers in terms filter power. I mean seriously, not much comes close to what this machine can do. Highly underrated. It eats the almost all other synthesizers for breakfast when it comes to sheer power.
Gear used in the demo:
Korg DSS-1 – all synths
Korg MS10 – bass (just a little bit)
Korg KR-55 – Kick and hats
All the delays heard is coming from the two internal delay lines in the DSS-1 itself.
Some of the sounds have external reverbs on them, from Valhalla VintageVerb.”
