This video used to be in hi-fi stereo, now apparently damn Youtube has gone back an is converting stereo videos to lo-fi mono. For high quality stereo you can listen to the MP3 at this link:
This is one in a series of videos of me demonstrating advanced sound synthesis using analog or virtual analog synthesizers and subtractive synthesis. Each video lists what synthesizer was used. In addition, some standard outboard effects were used such as EQ, reverb, digital delays, and/or chorus.
Be sure to check out other related videos in my series, and check back now and then as I will be posting more in the near future.
Note that the time duration of the video shows twice the length that the video actually runs, so the video will end when the pointer reaches half of its length. This happens as a side effect to getting Youtube to play a higher bandwidth file, in this case, stereo audio.
Since I like the music of Ennio Morricone, I decided to use that as a vehicle to demo some realistic acoustic imitations. I don't have any printed music scores, so I did it by ear, improvised stuff, and threw together elements from different Sergio Leone spaghetti westerns just to create an eclectic mix. It was all played by hand on the cheap little 4 octave Ion keyboard plus expression and sustain pedals, and overdubbed using multi-track recording software.
Synthesized instruments are listed in approximate order of when they make their first appearance.
01) Kettle Drum
02) Bass Drum
03) Tenor Recorder
04) Mellotron Choir (filters modified with envelope to make it say "Wah", and NO, the lame and useless Ion vocal filters were not used)
05) Alto Recorder
06) Acoustic Guitar (nylon string rhythm guitar)
08) Telecaster Electric Guitar
09) Acoustic Guitar (brighter sound, somewhere between a nylon and steel string rythm guitar)
12) French Horn
13) Snare Drum
14) Mellotron Male/Female Choir (sacrificed vocal clarity for density of sound)
****** Addition MP3 Files
I plan to do an Ion synthesized acoustic drum set demo, so I'll refrain from putting that MP3 below. But here are some additional Alesis Ion audio files for those interested.
This one shows various Tomita-style passages using several of my different Ion Mellotron Choir patches.
The following one alternates between a real Tomita recording of his Mellotron doing the "OOH" sounds and my Ion "AH" sounds. Excuse the faster tempo of my parts as I hadn't planned on doing this ahead of time.
Here is a test of some of my Ion brass sounds such as trombones, trumpets, tubas, octave brass, and more going from p to f in loudnesses.
And here is a short test of my Ion recorder playing in the left channel against a real recorder in the right to show how close to the real thing it is.
