"I would be most inclined to use BRASS -the solo trumpet in particular- in conjunction with sampled instruments, not to their exclusion. If BRASS is viewed as a step on what will undoubtedly be a continuing journey to maximize the possibilities of physical modeling, Arturia deserves a lot of credit."
A demo track based on the Multi “Dark Side 80s”. it originally uses 4 program playing in layering mode: 1 leads sound, a warm and fat bass sequence, an electro drum sequence, a complex dual percussive sequences program and a rich pad!
The mix of this track has been done in real time using the Program’s volume MIDI CC controllers and the mod wheel opening the cutoff frequency of the pad sound’s filter.
A jazz trio standard played by Origin. The jazz guitar and the double bass parts have been played with a Guitar MIDI controller to keep the guitar and bass intact feeling. The drum parts have been played with Drum Session thanks to a MIDI drum.
"I have chosen to create a track from the period in which the Prophet 5 and VS rained supreme synth: the 80's. The bass sounds are deep, the highs very airy and atmospheric. It was easy to achieve the 80's funk disco style of the time using the Prophet V."
Track made with Prophet V only, including drums. 16 instances of the Prophet V have been used in Ableton Live 5.0, one reverb from Live and one or two compressors. The final mix has been made with the Sony-Oxford limiter in Protools 7.0 M Powered.
Datrump uses a trumpet in the jazz style funk. The usage of pitch shows the different variations in the sound of the trumpet; the note, from time to time, slides lightly from a sound with lots of finesse to a more bluesy one. Using the mod-wheel on this demo is equally important for the vibrato.
The following demo uses three instruments: trumpet trombone and tenor sax. I love the possibility of moving the instruments in the audio space; in this demo, the main goal was to simulate a jazz club with 3 brass instruments + piano and acoustic bass. I used the breath on the amplitude of the sax just as an example of the power BRASS holds to recreate the ambiance of a Brass Jazz band.
12 minimoog V tracks in Cubase SX. No additional samples were used. All the sounds used in this piece are available in a preset bank of the minimoog V plug-in. Many thanks to the author, Jean-Michel Blanchet.
Fabrizio Massara (a.k.a. fab) is a keyboardist/composer/producer. He's a member of Baustelle, alternative pop italian band (two albums released, now signed to Warner Music Italy). He makes (real) love with (virtual) synths when the girls fall asleep... Many thanks to the author, Fabrizio Massara.

A quite extensive and various demo piece, showing many ways to play the CS-80V. Pads, strings, some high-register sounds are from the CS-80V. Sequencing and basslines are from the Moog Modular V. Some other percussion and effect plug-ins have been used.
A jazz guitar demo made with the CS-80V.The preset used is: JM-Blanchet _Guitars_The-Club. The setting of the LP cutoff from the first synthesis line has been increased a bit to make the sound more brighter.
Made only with Moog Modular V, drums and an electric guitar. I used compression on some parts. Modulations are played in real time with the pitch bend and modulation wheels. You can hear the extreme versatility and power of the Modular.
This song was made with several instances of the Moog Modular V, drums and a shaker. The only added effect is compression to limit extra dynamics, and sometimes eqs in the high frequencies to add some air to the sound.
A short demo sent by Dale Ong, from the USA, who worked for Bob Moog in the 80's. It was recorded (rendered in Sonar actually) using just 6 tracks, all MMV with no external processing. Courtesy of Dale Ong.
Bach's Invention #8, arranged and recorded by Jay Denonville. Recorded in ProTools using 8 tracks. Some tracks use half-speed recording for different timbral effects. Most patches are very simple, just using 3 oscillators, 2 envelopes, and a low-pass filt.
This file was sent to us with this nice comment: "This is Ryan Richardson from ThinkWare. Just wanted to let you know that your Moog product is excellent. The following link contains an mp3 file of a project I am doing with Moog Modular..."
A fragment of Bach's Brandenburg Concerto No. 3, 1st movement. Only one instance of MMV has been used, rendering track by track of a total of 22 audio tracks. No external EQ, compression or FX were used the sound is right as it comes from the Moog Modular V, which was used as a VST Plug-In on Cubase SX under Mac OS X, in 24-bit@44100 Hz.
