having a play on the various instruments
This was a fun one to make. Basically one improvised take on a MIDI keyboard which is hooked up to 3 synths and drum machine, with a pad from a 4rd synth going on in the background. Piano and noise-wave crashes were added afterwards. Using the JX-8P as a bass synth for the first time and gotta say....not too shabby!!!!!! [more inside]
Analog synth rap beat!!
Got an Arturia Keystep which means I can now program sequences on the JX-8P and baby it is a game changer!!!!!! Marimba sounds are from the Roland SC-88 which is MIDI'd up to the JX-8P as well.
2 analogs synth looping together. Experimenting with CV connectivity to create syncopation.
Kind of an LCD Soundsystem vibe
Arps: Roland SC-88 Chords: Roland JX-8P Drums: Korg S3 Bass: Korg Monologue
a demo synth loop with some manual tom fills in stereo
Improvised electric guitar over drum machine
Trying out an exciting new piece of recording gear, the Strymon Iridium!!
Driving music with some synth pad action
Improvising on a synth loop
Improvising with 2 synths and a drum machine (where it's at!!!!)
Enjoying my new drum machine!
Some minimal/deep house vibes. A very simple 4-track recording that was super easy and fun to make.
A little gtr, a little marimba, a little synth.
just kind of feeling good about stuff!!
Another drum-less synth loop featuring the Roland Sound Canvas SC-88 deploying its absolutely classic harp sample once again! All of the sounds on both this and my last post were made using hardware rather than software which is kind of a first for me in terms of synth tunes! Really enjoying it!
a new synth track featuring a new vintage gear acquisition, the Roland SC-88, providing the classic harp sample!
Some FL in FL
Kind of beta testing a new recording template
A mellow, chilled-out hip-hop groove
An eggs-tremely mellow morning improv sesh on the synth rig!!!
a short instrumental featuring all your favourite instruments including the ernie ball stingray 5-string fretless bass, the PRS SE Paul's Guitar, the Takamine G-series acoustic guitar, the Hammond SK-1 organ, and the Roland DP-90 providing the piano as well as the drums!!!!
so I've been using this songwriting trick where I program a simple loop using the sequencer on my synths and sort of riff off of it to come up with the other instrumental parts. Then, when I have the idea properly fleshed out, I remove the synths. A songwriting scaffold, of sorts (though in many cases I have kept the original loop in there!!!) Anyways, for this track I included the synth loop at the very beginning so you can hear what I'm riffing off of for the rest of the track. Hope you like it!!!! -CA
Tried a bunch of new stuff this time round. It's a dance trance but I played almost everything live, including the drums which were "performed" on the keyboard, because I'm not a drummer. The only things that were automated were the drum fills, crash cymbals, and the marimba/piano 2 patterns.
So I play in this cover band back home that is a bit heavier in terms of sound and we have a keyboard player so I keep saying we should do a metal version of Sandstorm. No one believes me that it will work so I decided to make a quick demo to show them what is possible. A super metal lead guitar takes the place of the lead synth, the chords are from my dad's old Roland JX-8P, bass is my Stingray 5, and the drums are factory keyboard drums performed live on the Roland DP-90. sandstorm Great song!!!!
I recently did a fairly significant overhaul to my recording setup - trying out the new rig with a jazz trio type format with an improvised double bass part which I mic'd and DI'd the pickup & blended the two together. Stereo piano is from the Roland DP-90 and the drums are the factory brushes kit from the DP-90 also.
FM softsynth drenched in reverb, chorus and delay
Springtime is back baby!!
Just having a play outside a couple summers ago
another improvised chord sesh on the acoustic guitar where I then overdubbed the other instruments!
Jangly pop instrumental track w/ simple guitar solo doing a few of the classic riffs!
Another song from my early 20s. Going through some old files and finding some stuff that I hope is worth posting on here. I will try
Piano improvisation based on the initial riff that eventually goes into a groove section which I loop and add bass/drums. And then there is an outtro part after the groove with a cheeky solo on the fretless bass.
An old instrumental jam from when I lived on the island. I think this is from around 2013.
Cheeky mandolin feature. Instrumental. Had to call it something.
Part I of The Last Baseball Game is meant to be the song they play before the game, as an intro. This is meant to be the post-game epilogue 'final farewell' kinda number. I meant to do a fadeout at the end, but I forgot, so the track just sort of plays out. I figured I might as well just leave it like that.
An autumnal fingerpickin' instrumental.
Takin a pass at this classic old time fiddle tune by Garry Harrison! Followed by a little acoustic guitar postlude, and then the neighbourhood cat shows up at the very end.
We have a Prophet-6 at work right now and I just found out that the sequencer is polyphonic. Programmed a chordy little loop and messed around with it a bit while grabbing it on my H2. Hope you enjoy the pure, unaccompanied sound of this gorgeous synthesizer!
Just having a play on my day off
Featuring Carlos Najar on guitar and your homeboy carrotadventure on synths and drum machine. In this upbeat improv jam I am playing the Roland GAIA synth for chords and the Korg Monologue for bass. Also operating the Roland TR-8 for beats.
From the new Yabra EP!
A short improvisation for polyphonic synthesizer and 16-step sequencer
Guitar solo. Been listening to some Red House Painters.
