Default No More Pain - Cinematic Analog Sequence - Dedicated to ISIS Sufferers

This is the latest track for my new album 'Hidden Gems | Instrumental Journeys' and is called 'No More Pain'. It is dedicated to those suffering under the cruel hand of ISIS.

Album downloads HERE (all free)

For this track, I used a combination of software and hardware synthesizers and sequencers and also incorporated some tape flanging (an emulation using a custom process I made up from a bunch of plugins and some REAPER multi channel routing) and a Leslie 147 emulation (GSi VB3). I also made use of this years' KVR developer challenge winner, Acon Digital Multiply (GREAT plugin!).
This track started off as my first experiment just after purchasing Zebra2. I was just messing about improvising with a patch that incorporated a plucked arpeggio and happened to record the MIDI. That then became the MIDI track that I used for all the other arpeggio parts. I also duplicated and edited the same MIDI part and used it for the Diva bass and pad parts.

Each of the layered arpeggio tracks were recorded one at a time with all hardware and software being tweaked in real time as the parts were recorded. The Zebra2 part was recorded first, then the Bazille pads (the first was duplicated and tape flanged), then the System 100 parts, and finally, the three JX-3P parts. Diva bass and pads were added last.

Here's the full list of instruments and FX:

Soft Synths:
Diva - Bass and JP8 Cinematic Pads.
Bazille - Pads (one instance through tape flanging, another through Valhalla Shimmer).
Zebra2 - Plucked arpeggios.

Analog Hardware Synths and MIDI Controllers:
Roland System 100 - Main sequenced arpeggios (panned hard L & R), oscillators deliberately slightly detuned - controlled via System 700 sequencer and Frostwave Quad MIDI - CV.
Roland JX-3P & PG200 (with Inque MIDI mod which allows velocity sensitivity via MIDI and PG200/MIDI inputs to be used at the same time) - additional arpeggios (three layers, one through Leslie 147 emu, one through Acon Digital Multiply and another through Delay and Reverb only).
Yamaha NP31 - Keyboard controller for Zebra2.

Roland System 700 analog sequencer (sync'd to REAPER via audio control from REAPER metronome which was split into bar/beat signals and sent to two RME outputs)
Simp Arp (Wolfgang Krumme).
Zebra2 Arpeggiator.

MIDI Control of analog gear:
Frostwave Quad MIDI - CV Converter.

Valhalla VintageVerb.
Valhalla Shimmer.
Acon Digital Multiply (on one instance of JX-3P arpeggios).
GSi VB3 (for Leslie 147 emu)
Interruptor.ch Wow and Flutter (x2), JS Channelmixer (x2), ReaEQ, JS Stereo Phase Invert - For tape flanging emulation.


RME Fireface UFX.
