FDP Forum / Rock-it 88's - Keyboard Forum / New Keyboard Tunes



Apr 12th, 2011 07:25 AM   Edit   Profile  

We added some new songs the last several weeks and Saturday night at one of our regular gigging places, we rolled them out for the public. They are Pink's "Raise Your Glass" and Lady Gaga "Born This Way". It was nice to dial in a fat 80's synth patch for both...especially Born This Way, as the keyboards really drive this song along with the drums. And both literally packed the dancefloor! Actually, the key parts were pretty easy to learn. Had fun and I love that particular patch! Fat, hairy and full!

I'm not real familiar with those tunes or that keyboard, but I do like fat analog tones :)

Just about anything that David Paich has ever played is pretty amazing too, IMO.

Always loved Toto! "Hold The Line" is a great keys song.

The Alesis 6.2 evolved from the "Quadra-Synths" they put out in the 90's.

In the 80's I had a DX-7 and a Yamah SK-20. SK-20 I still have. Great analog keyboard with a killer organ section AND a great Leslie emulation. In fact, it has the big multi-pin Leslie hookup on the back to plug into a real one.

I like the Alesis. I don't do sequencing in my band- play every lick live, and it has fantastic piano patches including Rhodes, Grand Piano, Piano and String combos (lush lush)...and being 61 keys, fit on the frontline nicely. I used to use 2 boards but now I also play guitar as well so one board is plenty.

Always liked the QS, just never owned one.

Was recently tempted to pick up a pre-owned Roland JP-8000 for its fat analog juiciness, but on second thought realized that most of the sounds I actually need are already contained on my SR-JV80 series “Vintage Synth” and “Keyboards of the ‘60s & ‘70s” expansion boards.
