Many moons ago , I studied electronic music.
To this day, I feel that the most important
aspect was the interaction between the noodler
and the instrument. At the time , musician skill was first,
noodling was second. Conventional skill
and or training in orchestral instruments were required to
gain access to these Synthesizers,
but the advent of actual sound design and its process was
a rather magical procedure that threw traditional training
out the window at the time.

Sure there was the learning curve of
Oscillators,Filters,Envelope Generators,
Lag Processors, Sample and Hold Functions,
the infamous sum and differences of Ring Modulation,
and the patience of hard wire patching,
however, there was a kind of plug it in, turn this knob,
slide this lever, and see what happens.

Here is a link to Phillip Glass " Koyaanisqatsi"
performed on some of those very moody instruments
of the day.

Needless to say,this film is a difficult analysis of modern
society.

great thread

Sure. I find I try to create a sequence as a rhythm/bass 1st, then work a bit of a melody then I'll layer in a second sequence or some pads.

Currently I'm looking at some videos where they talk about silence - and leaving "rests" for mood.

You might enjoy this

I like kate's stuff on the Music Easel,
rather than the euro rack.
Either way, you know a complex
multi rhythm when you hear it.
Buchla is better. buchla.com...
I am mesmerized by the ambient sounds
between the notes.

If you notice, the Easel IProgram Card is installed.

Thanks for the links in your reply.

Very rich and layered, the finger touch strip makes for a great performance, I like it ( the easel ).

from the youtube description...


Logic using foot controlled sends to route the Easel to different FX aux channels.




I'm trying to offload about 3 keyboards ( reclaim real estate hehe ).

Contemplating going PC for soundscapes, midi keyboards for leads, and probably retain my Radias...and delving deeper into my Matrixbrute. So much to do so little time.

And then I may even start off with a modular rack case - and then really become a hermit. hahahahaha

And then again the Behringer D








or Behringer Neutron Semi-Modular

Sounds good!

I have a couple old Korgs. The original K-1 and K-2 (Mini Korgs)
from 1975 , their first synthesizers.The K-1 belonged to Todd Rungren,
the K-2 belonged to Steppenwolfs Key player.
The Mini Korgs were used all over The Cars first 3 albums.
and a Roland Vk-7 Hammond clone,that I will be parting with.
Also a brand new Korg SV1 73 key Stage Unit.

Too bad ATS does not have a classified Ad Section.

Happy Thanksgiving to You!

Todd Rungren AND Steppenwolf...WOW


I've gotten over my G.A.S. form last week. I'm thinking going more PC and starting off with a couple of synth modules.

Ahhhh Yes! Gear Acquisition Syndrome!

Good for you! When I am finished restoring a
Mellotron, Hammond, and Prophet.
I will be cured as well. I think.

Unless I develop a sweet tooth for more drumsticks.

Good God Almighty! Best regards to you and yours!
