A real old school synth boogie. The Moog Slim Phatty is the only modern analog in there... the other stuff is Polymoog 280a, Crumar DS-2 and Arp Odyssey MK3. The strings are Moog Opus 3. The midi sequencer for this is the Quasimidi Polymorph. Mixing could be better, but perhaps I redo it one day...those polymoog pads really cut through.

Also musically I went for the 70´s, again smile A simple sequence, transposed here and there, bendy leads and whining strings... just fo the fun of it.

The arps create a nice hypnotic effect while the rest takes you on an epic journey.  Awesome stuff.

There's a strong melody hidden here.

Thanks! Sequencer drive is the most hypnotic drive smile I am glad you like it.

Thanks! Yes, there was an melodic idea there, but it got a bit lost because I was a bit in a hurryh  doing the overdubs. Needs a bit of weeding... perhaps too much going on leadwise. Could be more than a jam, with some developing.

Cool Vangelis-esque synth brass and strings. The Opus was not one of Moog's finer moments in my opinion but the strings sound classic. Like the unexpected modulations to a different key halfway thru. Great synth line flow and noodling!

Opus is actually one of the nicest string machines there was... technically i is not nearly as durable as Moogs normally are. But with a trick or two, one can get quite a lot out of them. This one has everything analog, so probably that results to good flow and unified sound palette. On the other hand, the sound design on this one is very safe indeed smile

Yes, it has that certain Berlin vibe, again... no wonder as I spent a good deal of my youth listening to Schulze and Tangerine Dream on headphones many late evenings smile
