Paraphonic tones created by mixing organ tone into the CSY-2A synth section VCF. You can do this by feeding a raw organ/patch into any analog synth with audio input to the filter... just play the synth and the accompanying organ/patch. The CSY-2A may have a bit more 'flavor' to the sound as it has a very rough organ waveform that better interacts with the filter vs. what you would get with a pure sinusoidal tone.
An old track, in tribute to the likes of Nicholas Winton, a modest man who's acts of kindness over a two week period rescued children from certain destruction, enabling them to survive into the future. The ripple effect of that positive act is immeasurable, whereby thousands of their descendants would not be around except for it.
It is an unmistakable example of why kindness and positive acts are so important, even from just one individual, as the opposite is certainly even more effective but in a much more devastating way. Performing just one act of kindness a day, and likewise being positive can only help to save humanity vs. the opposite - so, why not strive to be a part of that positive ripple effect?
4-track Cassette / Commodore 64 midi recordings done some 20 years ago using a Yamaha 4-operator FM synth or 2 (DX100, Tx81z, Dx11, V50 synth), rx17 drum machine and some korg drv-1000 reverb . A bit of a run-on likely thinking I might layer something else on top... I liked using the built-in midi delay effect with octave shifting to give the extra arpeggio-like echo
The CSY-2A and related SY1 & 2 are missing a vital synth component - Noise! Needed to create many classic patches and used as a source of random voltage. Here it is being fed through the filter in place of the VCO.
4-track Cassette / Commodore 64 midi recordings done late 80's, using a Yamaha 4-operator FM synth or 2 (DX100, Tx81z, Dx11, V50 synth), rx17 drum machine and some korg drv-1000 reverb . Someone told me this sounded like something out of Midnight Express by Georgio Morodor, labelled it accordingly... used a few of my custom 'analog-like' patches to good effect to create some nice layering... The Rx17 was a nice basic drum machine but the crashes were too short/compressed, still have it though...
4-track Cassette / Commodore 64 midi recordings done some 20 years ago using a Yamaha 4-operator FM synth or 2 (DX100, Tx81z, Dx11, V50 synth), rx17 drum machine and some korg drv-1000 reverb . This one used the reverse reverb patch of the DRV-1000, this was consumer level high-tech at the time, not a bad unit overall. Again, lot's of the percussive rhythm playing style...
