Tartaros

By Ashen Simian on November 14, 2018 6:48 pm

This is a bit more modern style than last week, but not that much smile I dusted of two old Roland synths I have, Jx8P and JP8000. Especially the latter was one of my favourite synths during the virtual analog days. Actually it still sounds pretty impressive today too. The pads are by JP and the synced leads by Jx8P. The rest is my usual analog hardware set up; Tr 808, Korg MS10, Yamaha CS-15 and 30 and Multimoog.

My idea was to do someting peaceful and not so dark and dense... but the result was rather pensive piece of slow/mid tempo electronica. Personally I am rather pleased with the mood and textures. Anyway, yet another brick in the weeklybeats wall is done!

All in all its just a---nother brick in the weeklybeats wall.... but what a brick! smile Love the theremin-ish sounds... YEAH!

Gotta agree the with Podling... the synths that sound a little like theremins are a fantastic sound.  A nice somber journey.  Love the build towards the end.

Just the sound of those big old bass note synths in the beginning are super tasty.  Lots and lots of great vintage sounds layered beautifully. The subtle percussive notes of the 808 blend perfectly. Great sound track to a lunar landing in an imagined future. The outro speaks to the success of future missions!

Very cyberpunk, would totally listen to while driving in a flying car amidst foggy skyscrapers draped in luminous panels. Love your choice of synths and the nice, cinematic progression, well done!

It's so much better than hell, though it'd fit a dingy club that is, but fancies itself more than that.
Great synths.

Thanks!!!  I frogot to mention, that particular sound is made with Crumar DS-2, the italian minimoog. Very unreliable synth, but mine has so far been OK. Nice, bendy sound with lots of modulation possibilities. Just don´t try to move it around too much smile

Thanks! I agree about that sombreness... perhaps it´s those riffs going downwards on the keyboard?

Thanks!!! the 808 rarely feels out of place. Glad it evoked somewhat positive vibes, though going in decidedly minor key.

Thanks a lot!  It feels like a journey soundtrack for me too...
