Love Of Lexicon


I got some new bits and pieces recently, and here are a few of them that I am exploring: Roland Jupiter 4, Dynacord TAM21 Stereo Flanger and the awesome Lexicon Prime Time ll - can't believe it's taken me so long to own one of these beasts. I'm in love...

Here is the G-O-S for the Um Dada album, a (fairly) complete image gallery of all the important synths, drum machines and stuff used during the recording process. Click on the thumbs for larger pix..

Um Dada




Here is a track from Mal's new album, which we recorded here earlier in the year. It was a really fun album to make - I love the way Mal uses his voice to become an integral part of the SOUND of the tracks. We spent a lot of time sampling his voice and messing around with lo-fi 8 bit samples in the Modcan modular. And used the Akai S612 a lot too to sample drum loops and keyboard loops. Its a damn great album, and even charted on the official US Billboard dance chart top ten! Woohoo!

I recently bought a whole stash of gear from someone (thanks for the tip-off Neil!) and amongst all the user manuals was a collection of Roland brochures from the 70s and 80s. So I have scanned all the synth-related pages from them, and put them into a PDF for the whole world to see. Below the embedded document are some pics of my favourite pages. ENJOY!

Drifterly




All Buchla 200. And self-playing

Patch Notes:
The 259 VCO goes into a Low Pass Gate, which is being controlled by an envelope created on ch2 of the MARF. Ch1 of the MARF controls the pitch and clocks everything. The signal then goes into the 296 Spectral Processor and has separate frequency bands turned on an off by the 281 Function Generator. The 281 is being triggered by various steps of the MARF, providing 4 slow LFOs. There is also a mixer into which the 277 Delay Unit is fed. A few other things are being modulated on the 259 such as the timbre and symmetry
