Im sure this topic has been played out ad nauseum but could somebody please just give me a simple list of effects parameters to get the sound.I have the notation and rhythm just looking for a passable tone for my cover band. Thanks as always.

What if the Hokey Pokey IS what its all about?

I just use the organ model, with a registration like 888880000. No C/V, no percussion. Then I run through a wah pedal. I manually play the part, and slowly open and close the pedal.

On my JUNO-G I used a square wave LFO modulating the volume, and a phaser effect. You can also try a slicer. According to Wikipedia, the organ used on the recording was a Lowrey so you might get closer using a transistor organ model.

The most important part of the sound is the pulsed gating, which the VR09 makes ridiculously easy with the 'tempo slice' MFX.

 

If you apply it to the organ you're 70% of the way there.

 

The more complete way would be to use the iPad editor to select an Organ-ish sample and apply an LFO routed to the filter cutoff. There's no way to do this without the editor IIRC. Then use the tempo slice MFX on that.

Did you have any trouble keeping the rest of the band synchronized? In my experience, it's a skill that needs to be developed and doesn't come naturally, especially to bands that don't use backing tracks.

I only played it by myself at home :( By the way I read that Keith Moon had to concentrate on keeping in tempo too :)

The answer here so far are great for the VR-09. use the "slice"

When I played this, I used my MOX and a great sound from one of the vintage keys libraries. My drummer and I had click track in our ears.

 

Even today, I send a click track for various songs from the FA-08 additional out to my drummer, so that string parts on certain songs are on tempo when I trigger them from the pads.

I've never tried that particular song but I have had problems with my band staying in sync to songs with other pulsed / gated synths. At least in WGFA the organ starts the song and is pretty out front so it sets a bit of a metronome for the others to come in.

I've been able to make arepeggiated parts work without a click using tap tempo, but usually they are short sections, not the entire song.

Agreed. That's why I prefer to just play the part. It gets tiring, but in this case, it is certainly doable.

I use the vintage keys patch for motif for the intro and middle solo and play the rest from the sk1...

Our drummer has great meter,but still wasn't rock solid on this one.Since we almost never practice any more... it was easier to just play it.
