Original compositions of other artists’ works that I admire.

Oxygene Part I

Trying out my new Waldorf Streichfett, I wanted to see what it sounded like through my Small Stone phaser pedal – this is the result.

A quick funny story: When I purchased this, I walked into the music store and asked the guy at the counter for some Sloppy Fat – he looked at me strangely and responded – do you want fries with that! (Streichfett literally translates to sloppy fat in German)

Gear List:

  • Waldorf Streichfett
  • Arturia Minibrute for the blips and squeaks
  • Small Stone phase pedal (EHX)
  • Roland System-1 (SH-2 Plugout) for Bass
  • Korg M3 for the sequenced strings (wish the Streichfett had some more tools like envelopes etc).
  • Oh and I almost forgot – Novation Bass Station II for that metallic/brass lead sound (so similar to an Arp it isn’t funny)

Air on a G String

So I wanted to re-create the breathy flute sound in War of the Worlds, whilst I was at it, I remembered Air on a G String is a nice fluty song …

Gear List:

  • Novation Bass Station II
  • Korg M3
  • (ITB) Arturia CS-80V

Procession [cover]

I got myself a Streichfett (Waldorf) – these things emulate the 70/80’s strings synths like the Eminence, Solina etc. This track is just a sneak preview of the completed one …
