Roland do the lushest pads

Postby konaboy » 22:58, 2 February 2017

Quite amazed by the huge sound from this little synth. The supernatural va engine never fails to impress me, i enjoyed the same great sounds on my FA.

Here's my latest track to prove the point...

That's a great track!

Did you do it all in the JD-Xi or did you do post-processing in a DAW?

Did you use presets or did you create your own sounds for this track?

Hey, thanks for checking it out. Did some synthwave stuff as well that you might enjoy, plus a couple of new tracks coming out during the weekend. cheers :)

In answer to baz, I created the pattern myself and then played the performance in one take, whilst jamming over the pattern. No multi-tracking in the DAW or any cheating :)

I cut out of the video to the animation because it gets a bit boring watching the Xi cycle through the pattern, a lot of the time I'm not doing much apart from turning knobs and pressing a few buttons, playing a few lines on the keys, but there are lengthy periods with no action. thought the animation would be more entertaining :)

I agree about the pads being most lush. I haven't had a Roland synth since my Juno 106 back in the 90s. Since then I've had most of the usual suspects. Model D (original), Nord Lead 2, MS2K, Triton Le etc. Recently I've added the Sub37, OB-6 Desktop and the JD-XI. I think the lushness has to do with the envelopes. Roland's just seem tighter for lack of a better word. They remind a little of the NL2 envelopes. Nice track btw.
