Here's a really old one from me, almost 30 years old!
But it has some nice MiniMoog bass in it: https://youtu.be/sLH26SmJeYY
Very nice. Good audio quality also, considering the transfer from a 28 year old cassette. What synth did you use for the solo line near the end?
In order of appearance if memory serves me:
The dog/wolf howls is Roland MKS-50 preset B83 ‘Dog Bark’ I used some pitch bending on it
The ‘wind’ sound I’m pretty sure is Mini Moog Model D
The sort of gong/deep bell sound is a Roland S-10 sampler with a sample I made of part of an old coffee percolator.
The strings . . . the first strings to enter are one of the Roland MKS-50 presets but through out the piece I think there are also Roland S-10 sampler strings and possibly some strings from a Yamaha TX81z also?
The massive bass is Mini Moog Model D of course!
The soft bell line is a Yamaha TX81z preset I think, probably from bank D (or Roland MKS-50?)
The acoustic guitar is from a Roland S-10 sampler.
The noise burst (supposed to be “lightning crack/thunder”!
is sort of interesting. This is from a modified PAiA 4750 LFO/Noise module. I was experimenting with different noise transistors and I happened to try a zener diode that was in a transistor like package. (the noise circuit only used two of the three transistor leads so the diode was try-able) I put a switch on the front panel select the normal transistor or the zener diode. And I found that by switching to the zener would cause a burst sound that would die out in a sort of random way.
The lead solo line at the end is Yamaha TX81z preset C20 ‘Lyrisyn’
The drums are from a Roland TR-505 drum machine, played by hand via MIDI on the Roland S-10 keyboard.
I think the only effect unit I had at the time was a Yamaha SPX90 which was used for reverb and possibly chorus on the guitar sample.
Mixing board was a Studiomaster 8 Into 4
