Thanks! I agree about the harmonies. The tracks weren't meant as much more than examples of what a Juno-6 / 60 can sound like. They were sort of made up as I went. This Juno is my first synth, so obviously I can't compare it to VCO synths. But I have to say I was positively surprised when I got it, especially after all I had read online about the differences between VCOs and DCOs.

I decided to educate myself, and cover Depeche Mode's Any Second Now from the album Speak And Spell (1981).

All parts courtesy of the Moog Little Phatty - including the drums. I did run an external white noise source into the audio input for the downward swoop, but otherwise it's purely Phatty.

Reverb is Lexicon MPX1, EQ and mixing on the A&H Zed R16 firewire mixer/interface, panning and volume automation, and a touch of light compression, in Logic.

Enjoy. :beer:



Here's the original for reference:



Needless to say, I covered this for fun, and not for gain. If you like it, buy the original album. It still stands up today I think, though some aspects have dated better than others. 8-)

Wow, that sounds great! Really close to the original. Love the drum sounds, they're really punchy. :)

Thanks! I've been getting some good drums out of the Phatty lately... there's a lot to be said for rolling your own.

Here's a patch I created on a the Fizmo a while ago. Everything comes out of the board itself. No Post-Processing.

Makes excellent use of some of the transwaves, as well as some of the standard waveforms. It sounds very spacey and hypnotic.

I slowly increase the filters (globally for all oscillators) to change the sound over time. A distinct trait of the sound can be heard from one of the transwaves being modulated by a noise LFO.

This sound is actually outdated - as I have since improved on it some more - however, this is the only variation of the patch I have, where any of the transwaves are modulated by a noise LFO, which makes this variation quite interesting.

Hope you like.

Here's link.

If anyone's interested in what a relatively clean demo of the Evolver sounds like. :o
It's funny, I'd never come across the common loon preset until tonight.

PS. Try not to giggle too hard at my keyboard skills.

MINIMOOG MODEL D:

I put a quick demo together of a number of sounds I quickly dialled in on my newly aquired 1976 Minimoog.

This one is fitted with the old 6 pot Oscillator board:

http://www.sendspace.com/file/jsel9h

I started to play with using OSC3 as an HF modulator - I was expecting metallic clangs for sure...

I was NOT expecting this!!.... it breaks all the preconceptions for me... well beyond the range of timbres I was
expecting from a Minimoog. Quite simply the most well controlled analog FM bells I've ever managed to get out of any analog synth... let along one of the very first portable analog voltage controlled synths ever made!!

http://www.sendspace.com/file/a571hj

Equally - would you expect a solo violin from a Minimoog?:

http://www.sendspace.com/file/i1c09n

or timpany drums!?:
http://www.sendspace.com/file/3ff7g0

Here's the Mini being subjected to increasing amounts of tube overdrive. In this case I have deliberately chosen a soft triangle wave based sound to show how it can be mangled in a way tubes do best!

Download here:
http://www.sendspace.com/file/gk7usb

Here is a heavy Xmod sound with OSC-3 tuned down -6 semis and the resulting effect brought in and out with the mod wheel for a sort of sync guitar effect (despite the fact that the mini has no sync mode).

Only basic delay has been added to this:
http://www.sendspace.com/file/7idgip

Here is the same effect on a bass patch triggered via the S-Trig input by a sig gen:
http://www.sendspace.com/file/ij6zz3

As you can hear, modulating the Xmod depth makes for lots of movement.

You can download the whole series of Minimoog demos here:
http://www.sendspace.com/file/imr8j9

The Minimoog feeding the Polymoog resonator can produce some interesting results.

I made an acoustic guitar sound this way:
http://www.sendspace.com/file/fwg0x2

Here is a second guitar patch I came up with - again the Mini into the Polymoog resonator:
