Re: that synth sound that Im so interested in ( bordering on sonic obsession)
Its track 3 on 'Erpland' ; 'Tidal Convergence'
It sounds like late 70s fusion ala Brand X. Im not that interested in the track as such in itself or this type of music,( except I used to love Brand X at their best, & Gong & Hillage, the originals )
What it is about this track that Im interested in as I have already said twice , is that particular synth sound & treatment , the synth line that opens the track & continues throughout the track.
Its a particular synth sound that I have heard before in other artists tracks of that era ~( early to mid 1990s) & a sound that I have been trying to identify , 'nerd' that I am in this respect.
Again its a digital sounding synth , but a very warm one , slow chords & a slow sweeping filter on this track that almost sounds as if its a dual filter , band pass or high pass filter in series with a low pass.
Now as I said Im not familiar with the intricacies of the Roland D50s filter or advanced features & I thought it may be this synth filtered through a Korg MS20 , then I was thinking that it may be a Microwave ( due to the dual filter sound)as I think Joie & Ed used all these synths at this time.
I could have sworn that it was a JD800 ( & it can come very close indeed to this sound) but I recently found out that the JD800 came out a year after Erpland was released, so that is highly unlikely then.
I guess I really need to ask them, but it may just be a D50 on its own, so I thought maybe someone here with a D50 & who knows this album could enlighten me. ?
If not Ill have to ask the players
