Some minimal/deep house vibes. A very simple 4-track recording that was super easy and fun to make.

Brazilian Brooks

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!

eemz haleemz

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

Special Teams

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.

Sandstorm

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!!!!

Jazz Trio Improv #1

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.

Piano Jam 2020

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.

The Last Baseball Game - Part II

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.

Soothin' Synths, Part 2: a Synthy Lullaby

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!

Aka 21 Nugent St., AKA this deadly house in Thunder Bay where we have righteous disco-ball dance parties and bluegrass jams, and where I've been crashing the last few weeks. It's been a treat.
