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?
Ran the Fatman via my goovbox midi out, just hearing the Fatman on top the Drumbeat and exercising the various Analog controls for the filter, cutoff, filter EG, VCO Glide while keeping the VCO's fixed. Gives an idea how versatile the FATMAN can be once you bring MIDI into the picture, it's great for realtime tweaking. (No Effects - just the pure Fatman Sound)
The original SynthTune1 track was done in late 89, this is a redo where a corresponding MIDI version was recreated vs. the first having the lead and accompaniment being adlib. A bit of effort to recreate the timing and all, 95% accurate or so, minus the drums. Now able to take the original and play it back on alternative synths.... the Yamaha CS6r Dance Synth adds a whole lot via its built in arpeggiator feature - works off the exact same notes heard in the original FM version and really livens things up. (intro and outro are shorten up in post audio editing)

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.
Just got this so came up with a very basic Korg SQ1 Sequenced Track - A & B halves working VCO and VCF respectively - manual tweaking of various synth functions... noise is there for a bit of additional texture. The SQ1 is also sending the MIDI Sync to the accompanying drum beat..
Random voltage generated by heavily filtered Zener diode noise source. Aftertouch was also controlling filter cutoff frequency. Different from the S&H type random voltage as it is continuous vs. clocked.
