Roland MC-909 & Korg Kaoss Pad 3, meditative ambient india style

YouTube via beckhusen
"This is the 3rd project which i made with my new Roland MC-909 Groovebox. This time i combined it with the Korg Kaoss Pad and routed 2 sample patches from the MC-909 to the Kaoss Pad.
The style may be unusually for a Groovebox, i'm still exploring the possibilities and don't want to join only the bum-bum section."

Last.fm/presents Keyboard Choir performing Legal Boards at Cargo

YouTube via LastfmPresents. Some synth spotting for an all synth band. via Oli

The list for this performance:
* Boss SP303: A great little sampler. Compact, robust, and non-volatile sample memory. Perfect for single shots and non rythmical loops.
* Korg DW8000: A rather unique synth, digital single cycle waveforms running through an analogue filter (actual analogue, not virtual). Capable of some thunderous bass in unison mode, and some ethereal shimmering pads. Ours has lost it's memory and just makes odd noises now. Hopefully a new battery will cure its' dementia.
* Korg Kaoss Pad 2: Kaoss pads are rather good.
* Korg Kaoss Pad 3: The KP3 ups the sampling and beat sync side of things. The LED matrix display on the pad is pleasingly retro-futuristic.
* Korg MS2000R: The ms2k is a surpisingly deep and versatile VA. Especially once you get the mod matrix and modsequencer in on the action. Also scores highly in the flashing lights department.
* Korg Microkorg x 3: Same synth engine as the ms2k less the modsequencer. Cheap and good sounding, hence the popularity with the band.
* Korg Radias R: A seriously underestimated synth - capable of some fantastically dirty, organic and liquid textures. An enigma, bling in appearance, but actually rather cultured and interesting.
* Korg N364: Can I point out we're not sponsored by or connected to Korg in anyway? We just seem to have ended up with a lot of Korg gear. Anyway, the N364 is a pretty bog standard mid-90's ai2 S+S workstation. It weighs a ton, and is gets used for wurly and pad sounds. Often though a cheap distortion pedal.
* Korg Triton: Another Korg, another bog standard workstation. To it's credit, the Triton does have a reasonble resonant filter and some knobs.
* Korg EA-1: Great little squelch box, ours seems to have died completely, but I'm listing it anyway in case it impresses Mr Korg and we get some free stuff.
* Yamaha SHS10: (yes, Yamaha. sorry Mr Korg) There are a few circuit bent SHS10's, but we've only ever used the midi out on ours. Those familiar with this instrument will know why this is especially shameful.
* Yamaha DX21: Vintage 80's 4-op FM synthesis. Goes through many pedals and a noise gate to make it sound a bit less like a vintage 80's 4-op FM synth..
* Yamaha CS2x: A ton of great sounds but very shallow synthesis.
* Yamaha PSS130: Portasound never had the same ring to it as Casiotone.
* Various FX pedals and processors"
