As We Were

By mechlo on January 17, 2016 9:38 pm

I have an affinity for classic synthpop and retro synths. I've been writing some form of synthwave on and off since 2012. This is my attempt to get back into the more cinematic vibe of the genre.

Gear used:

JV1010 and JU06 for the chord pads
Bass Station 2 for bass line and lead
Rocket for arps
MPC1000 loaded with R8 samples for drums

Rocket??  The Rocket 8bit synth?  Groovey vibes there!

Another Rocket lover here! I run it from my Beatstep sequencer along with my modular setup. It help keeping track of things when the analog modular side goes out of tune!

Nice synth lines, Mechlo. Stacked lines of JV vocal patches there?

Yeah! Stacked 3 patches on the JV to accompany the Juno.

Thick sounds on those pads!  Nice.  Stack is great
