Re: UPLIFTING PIANO SOUNDS

Couldn't find it anywhere mate?...I had a look on the Time+Space website & they have one called Total Piano in Akai format which I might try or there is someone on ebay selling sample cd's in Akai format featuring some of the classic synth & sound modules (M1, JV2080, JP8000, JD800 etc...) ;)

Re: UPLIFTING PIANO SOUNDS

Thanks for the tip Squatski, I never thought of trying that method...I usually just paste the notes into key editor in cubase & tweak the eq but your method does sound like a good idea! maybe thats where I was going wrong...?

Thanks again mate, top tip ;)

Hi guys, I'm after an uplifting Piano like the ones used on happy hardcore tunes. can anyone suggest a good synth or sound module that can produce those uplifting piano sounds? what about the piano used on Liquid - Sweet Harmony or Sonz of a loop da loop era - Far out? were those just ordinary piano...

Re: Which sequencers did the oldskool pioneers use?

I was looking through some old music magazines the other day and came across some interviews.... 4 Hero used Atari C-Lab Creator, Roni Size used Notator but switched to Cubase when he worked with DJ Krust who was using Cubase, Blame uses Logic, LTJ Bukem uses Logic Audio, Adam F uses Atari Notator....

Re: Which sequencers did the oldskool pioneers use?

Have any of you guys tried the windows version of Octamed http://www.medsoundstudio.com/ is it anything like the original? or is Renoise better? I'm a Cubase user & haven't really tried any of the other proggies apart from Reason. ;)

Re: Which sequencers did the oldskool pioneers use?

Bizzy B was another famous producer to use the amiga. Pretty sure some early Dance Bass (02 and 03) and Parliament stuff was also made with an amiga. Yeah I had a feeling Bizzy B may have used the Amiga as a lot of his stuff sounded lofi, maybe Swift & Zinc used one too as they released some stuff ...

Re: Which sequencers did the oldskool pioneers use?

They were all samples on the Amiga - if you listen carefully you can hear aliasing in the bass of that tune. Yeah you're right, does sound very lofi now you mention it..!! How much sample time did the Amiga have & how many samples could be loaded into Octamed? ;) Don't hold me to this as it may hav...

Re: Which sequencers did the oldskool pioneers use?

Urban Shakedown used Octamed on an Amiga 500 for the track Some Justice as I recall. I didn't realise the Amagia was used for dance music so its interesting to find that out..!! That Urban Shakedown tune is a classic oldskool anthem!!!! Just been looking at Octamed on Wikipedia, did you know about ...

Which sequencers did the oldskool pioneers use?

Thought it might be an interesting topic to discuss which sequencers the oldskool pioneers used on some of their all time classic tunes..! Here's a couple to start the ball rolling.... Liam Howlett used a Roland W30 workstation to write alot of the early Prodigy stuff (I think he uses cubase these d...
