Ogopogo

By Ashen Simian on October 14, 2018 8:14 am

It´s the 70´s show...again! Old skool sequencer stuff with more leads than necessary. The reason for this slab of retroism is that I dusted off my old Korg 700S monosynth (bought it in 1995 and it was an antique instrument already then smile). It worked fine after a little encouragement and sounds excellent! So I gt a bit carried away with that little synth and here it is doing all the monophonic lead stuff... it has unique, cuttingly bright sound and really shines with a bit of reverb/delay.

The sequences are Moog Little Phatty and Roland JV1080, driven by Quasimidi Polymorph. Some subtle beats from Akai Rythmwolf.

Love these synths! Great spaced out jam, really takes you on a journey.

Quasi-monster music (if I'm correct in recalling that the Ogopogo was from Canadian folklore)? Great synth work!

That high pitched lead knows what's up.

Definitely epic and some great vintage synth sounds to tickle the ears.

Thanks guys! Yes, I think Ogopoge was a sort of Loch Ness monster for the Canadian waters...

Thanks! Very old-fashioned soundworld in this, but there´s no denying that they go well together this way. Hopefully I have more time in the next weeks to try out something a bit more new soundwise...
