No Words & Robot Revolution

Post by red99 »

Hi all, I used to frequent these boards and learnt and awful lot from them.

As a result of Melbourne's long Covid lockdowns I finally got around to putting some of my music online. Two albums below

No Words
https://soundcloud.com/chris-breen-5119 ... s/no-words

Robot Revolution
https://soundcloud.com/chris-breen-5119 ... revolution

It was all recorded, mixed and mastered in Scope, some of the older songs on Robot Revolution use scope synths, newer music I make on No Words is mostly using outboard analog synths and drum machines.

Any feedback much appreciated.

Nice work on the albums - interested to know what outboards you used. Melbourne Florida or Melbourne Victoria ? I'm guessing the latter cuz I don't hear much about Florida having lengthy lockdowns :)

Oh wow, red99. Really enjoyed listening to those albums! Totally old school electronica, but sounded fresh!

Really love your sounds, the arrangements and mixes are all top notch IMO.

Bit late in the evening for extensive review now, but for now and in short: I'm most impressed :D

Thanks Atom & Dante, I really appreciate you taking the time to listen. Old school electronica is about right, and probably gives away my age. I've been making music a long time as a hobby, mostly just for myself because I feel driven to do it and love getting lost in the creative process...but it is nice to get some positive feedback! Made my day :)

Yes Dante you were right it's Melbourne Victoria, I think we had the world's longest lockdown.

Outboard, I have slowly built up a nice collection of synths over the years, some of my go to gear is Behringer Crave, Moog Subsequent 37 & the Sequential OB-6, I recently got the Behringer RD 8 which I've been using a lot. The OB-6 and the Sub 37, are expensive and lovely ...but I have to say the Crave, which was only $300 Aud, is a match in its own way for both, I really love the sound. Only having one oscillator (which sounds so good) is a really useful creative limitation, which then helps focus on the extensive modulation possibilities. The tracks I put up were written over many years, so some of the earlier ones used different synths, I used to have a Waldorf Pulse which I used a lot for bass but I sold it because I found it a bit too fiddly to use...on some of the earlier tracks there would have been Scope synths also like Pro-12, Minimax & Flexor.
