Konbanwa!, I'm just happy that EM411 is still around after all these years.
I'm an engineer thats been building synthesizers for the past half decade.
Recently I've been experimenting with the synthpop / indy vibe, thanks for listening.
Giorgio Moroder / Donna Summer
Electric Light Orchestra
Yellow Magic Orchestra
The Human League
Synth: Custom Analog modular - Musi Basis System (like a hotrodded / stylish Blacet, would be the closest example).
Rhythm: TR707 with Musi sound ROM expansion and MIDI sample dump transfers.
MIDI controller: Custom electronics KORG RK-100.
Sound card: EMU 1616m
Vocals: Shure SM7B
Monitoring: JBL Professional
Sequencing: FL Studio
Just the essentials.
I have some Moog and Sequential gear I'm fixing up / repairing lent to me from friends but really the only synth I've been using for the past year is my Musi modular. Together with FL I can layer or build pretty much anything. Yes it does take time patching everything in, and I have to decide on a final BPM before I start recording tracks, but I'm happy with the setup.
