J. Dan Posted October 24, 2016 Share Posted October 24, 2016 This is something I've though about frequently over the years. THIS thread is along those lines and got me thinking about it again. I was going to wait until I had an example, but I just don't have time right now and wanted to get this started on the coat tails of the other thread. My idea is to start a thread of compositions done ENTIRELY on a multi tracked primitive synth or other instrument to see how far you can take it. The difference between my suggestion and the linked example would be that, for this challenge, EVERYTHING including percussion has to come from the same synth (you may have to rethink your idea of percussion. Outboard effects are ok but let's keep it to reverb, delay, chorus, phase, flange, EQ, and dynamics - no outboard distortion, rotary, pitch shift, Harmonizer, or synth type effects. No workstations. So subtractive, additive (including organs), FM and its derivatives (DPM, iPD, etc)....no samples. From my own arsenal, I plan on attempting this with the Casio CZ-101 (and/or maybe VZ-8M) and my trusty Roland Jupiter 6. I have more confidence in the JP6 since it can do percussion with its noise source and filter.
