golden girls - kinetic - Morley's Apollo mix




^i'd love to know everything about this piece.

soundwise i "have to" know how the minorish synth timbre entering @ 2:20 was made. (@ 4:29 it comes back, even more upfront as the the upper keys are more apparent in the mix)

i've heard a similar timbre once in Biosphere's "cloudwalker II" track but that's it, cant remember hearing it anywhere else, and i love this timbre for almost 20 yrs now..

^here at 1:50 - either very similar, or even the same thing, who knows.

wouldnt mind knowing what the upper strings in "kinetic" were made with too and the leads, well - everything you can "share" will be noted down.


great track (song) and the production is excellent in every way imo.

This is going to be a let down
That is the only sample i used from the original I believe so I don't know!
The strings I used a lot throughout those years were a sample I made of my Jen string machine in my Roland s-750. I layered it, Detuned it and had a bit of the Roland filter going. I love that sound still. Most leads are the Minimoog. A fair bit of Yamaha tx816 in those tracks too.
Cheers
David.

haha i'm dumb, literally :D

the Apollo mix is the only one i ever liked therefore i completely pushed the other mixes out of my memory, and indeed the original takes off with this synth playing solo for a few bars..


i've never had my hands on any s-7xx or 5xx - apparently they can sound great in the right hands.

No problem! Glad you like the mix. I was pleased with it too.
I think the S-750 is a great sampler. I never got on with the Akai S1000 which was he most common one at the time. I thought it sounded harsh and I much preferred the Roland operating system (although I might be the only one!)

Hey now, the Cubic 22 mix is brilliant, a rave classic. I don't think Frank De Wulf added much of significance to his mix though...
