While I still need to finish recording and mixing the final song in the Xerian hexology, I've had a bit of a creative block in writing new music. So when this idea came along I was determined to see it through.
Here is an instrumental theme for the robot panther guards that turn up a lot in my comics. It reminds me a lot of some of the earliest music I did when I had just the M-VS1 and JV1010, so there's a nostalgia kick to this that goes beyond the vintage synths from the 80s that I put to use. I was originally going to do the entire thing on synthesizers but ended up adding a little bit of electric bass too at the last minute.
This is the first time I've recorded bass directly to 2" instead of going through the TSR-8 first - since it was just a short section and not the entire song it didn't really need the automatic punch-in which the TASCAM brings to the table.
Yamaha TX7 (desktop DX7) - the main bassline is using one of the classic DX7 patches.
Roland MVS-1, JV1010 and D550 (rackmount D50)
Sequential OB6, Korg M1R, Cheetah MS6, Waldorf Streichfett, Moog Voyager, Alesis DM10, Steinberger XT2d bass, Strymon Deco and Bluesky
Recording was done on an Otari MX80 24-track recorder and mixing was done to a Studer A807.
