Re: Thing On a Spring Project Diary.

28.1.16 Got the main bulk of the sequencing done. Here is a short preview of how the track is sounding all sounds are 4-op FM except the drums. It has been recorded from the TQ 5 outputs ( including the Korg symphony drums) into the PC without any EQ or effects; much like you would record from an a...

Re: Thing On a Spring Project Diary.

You are correct in saying that analog x64. The genesis uses the 2612 FM chip and the instrument I'm using has a similar chip-the 2414 FM chip but with 2 more channels. Both chips have some degree of patch compatibility. Week 2 25.1.16 Added an extra mid bass to the track to give it a bit more weight...

Re: Thing On a Spring Project Diary.

Cheers dumper I hope you are going to enjoy the end result. 22.1.16. Work & Fallout 4 are taking up my free time. However have worked out the patterns to be done on the Rm1x and got a test pattern up and running to see if the instruments work together. These are an FM violin patch, an FX spring soun...

Re: Thing On a Spring Project Diary.

Yes I guess the fun part is not knowing what sounds it will throw out. 20.1.16 Having rehearsed the parts a bit and got the general gist of them, it's time to get down to the nitty gritty of sequencing it all. For this I won't use the inbuilt sequencer of the TQ5 but I'll link up my Yamaha Rm1x for ...

Re: Thing On a Spring Project Diary.

Cheers for the suggestions Mordi. :cheers: Will put up some WIP on soundcloud as the project progresses. 19.1.16 Printed out score parts. The track stripped down mostly consists of a bass, main lead (that alternates between instruments for variation) and drums with Fx to liven it up a bit. Currently...

Thing On a Spring Project Diary.

Hi all, I thought it might be a cool idea if I documented my next c64 remix project as a WIP diary. WIP diaries seemed to be all the rage back in the early days of the internet (along with FAQ whatever happened to them?) I guess we call them DEV Diary Blogs now a days... So without further ado provi...

Yes it was heading that way so I will have to take what I've got and change the style a bit.

Re: Post your home studio

For my home studio I use my Rm1x as a sequencer because I like the rock solid timing it gives. This is then midi'd up to several hardware synths. I then sync the Rm1x to my DAW which is Magix music maker that I bought for about £40. I record the parts in to it as wav samples. Then I add additional s...

Re: So Hardware Synths are the best after all....

Really in what way. I know the MS-20 mini for example has really basic midi just note on and off and only on channel 1 which for a modern reissue is poor really.

Re: So Hardware Synths are the best after all....

I see Roland are joining the vintage hardware reboot and releasing some of their classic synths in slightly different guises via their Roland Boutique Series. The prices are quite shocking really when compared to the original releases of the synths. That being - Very Cheap!

Necronom remix

Hi all, Just a quick news update on anyone interested in the R-type inspired Amiga shooter Necronom. I'm currently remixing the intro tune. It's about 70% complete. The style is Tangerine Dream meets Jan Hammer with an added bit of orchestral flavours to the mix. Look out for an upload to Amiga remi...
