Ken Elhardt short Solaris demos

Post by John Bowen » Tue Nov 29, 2011 8:00 am

Ken Elhardt has been working on some presets for Solaris, and posted this message on the Analog Heaven blog today:


"I had no idea that John Bowen knew who I was, but one day I was contacted by him to program some presets for his mighty Solaris synth (I finally get paid for creating sounds). So I have a Solaris on loan and have been learning my way around it for the past two weeks. Figured I'd just throw down a few tracks to demo a few sounds I've come up with. No Waldorf or VS wavetables were used, it's all subtractive synthesis.

"There are three short snippets of Stairway to Heaven, Baba O'Riley, and some U2 style maneuvers based around chords from Where The Streets Have No Name. All played by hand without a click track. Excuse the Baba O'Riley marimba repeat organ sound as I used echo in there to fill in missing notes in the difficult to play double strike main sound and so it's a little messy. Normally it should be sequenced. I'll do better demos after I create more sounds."

The guitar sound on Stairway to heaven is very impressive if it doesn't use sample. I like it.
