The idea of this track came from a Minilogue patch I made yesterday (reverb from Eventide H9). Then Iadded a JU-06 custom patch and a System-1 (both sequenced by Beatstep Pro), a strings arp from Radias, some JD-Xi drums and a JP-8000 lead... and this came out!
Hoping you have a great weekend!

A patch I made on Roland JU-06, during the last session yesterday. JU-06 is controlled by Keith McMillen K-Board -a nice controller that allows me to give to the JU-06 an analog drift feeling by K-Board's Tilt & Press functions. Roland Demora plays an important role, contributing with its magnificent (on my taste, sure) stereo delay.

Enjoy and have a great weekend, my friends!

PS: Roland JU-06 patches - soon!

I couldn't wait to arrange the studio and to soundproof it, so I really had to record a track! Otherwise... Yep, it is really hard to keep me away from making music. No jokes on that!
Starting with pads from Roland JU-06 controlled by K-Board Keith McMillen and from Korg Radias. 1st sequence comes from Korg Minilogue, drums from Roland JD-Xi, synth from System-1, sequence 2 from Radias, sequence 3 from Virus Ti2 and drums 2 from Novation Circuit.

How To make a Berlin School track in a few minutes and with minimum gear. Sure, this is a simple track, but starting from here you can add layers of sounds.
I used:
- for sequence: Volca Keys in different modes. Volca Keys is sequenced by the Circuit in Cmin. For reverb I used Clouds.
- for pads: Volca Fm - and I played on it with the Beatstep Pro, because the keys are very small to play nice pads. For delay I used Roland Demora.
- for drums: Novation Circuit.
And this is it! I even not played the internal sounds of the Circuit, so if I'm adding a new (bass) sequence from it, the track can be improved a lot!
All the above gear are directly recorded into the Logic Pro X via my audio interface Echo Audiofire 12. No other FX were added.

You can download the patches and other freebies from: http://www.albaecstasy.ro/roland-system-1/
In this demo I only used the on board reverb and delay of System-1. No external effects.

Attention:
Due to some unkown reasons, the prm files, when I exported them from System-1, have been saved with the osc 2 detuned to maximum - the negative value (to the left) of it. If you are going to use this files to upload into the System-1, please tune the osc 2 to “zero” value (middle) before using it. Hit Save /Write to remain with this value.
The patches from the bin file are correctly exported and they don’t need any tuning.

Have fun and don't forget to like, comment and subscribe!

A small video showing the Roland System-1 in self resonance. All oscillators has been shut off and I only juggled with the cutoff and the resonance.
In addition, I played with the:
- filter and amp envelope and
- different LFO waveforms but only to alter the filter so I can create pitch.
I added the onboard reverb and delay to flavour the sounds!
