Stratos 1977

Recommended Posts

Stratos 1977
I spent some time with the new Cherry Elka-X vst synth, trying out the presets and tweaking the knobs. Pretty soon I was getting a Klaus Schulze kind of a sound which I used in this song. It's spacey electronic music featuring filter frequency and resonance tweaking along with the filter ADSR envelope tweaks. It takes a lot of time to hit the right combination of settings to get that Schulze sound.

Not totally happy with this one but here's what I came up with. It's more of a backing track. Gonna add some keys on top if I can think of how to do that.

As always don't listen while driving or operating heavy machinery.


Synths used
Arturia CS-80
Cherry Audio Elka-X
Omnisphere

Thanks for listening/commenting.

Hi Bjorn - really like this - I've always been a big Klaus Schulze fan and irrlicht is one of my favourite albums!

Very cool indeed, love it

Nigel

PS - I like it, like it is - nothing else needed!!!

Clean and crisp. It's almost surround sounding . I really liked the lows coming in around the 2 min. mark and at the outro. Yeah ,  melody line on top of it would be nice. I enjoyed the Great mix ..  mark

I like it - it has a hint of Pink Floyd about it too to me (Shine on You Crazy Diamond) with the drone opening.  It obviously doesn't stay there, but that doesn't matter - it ends up in a really cool place.

Thanks tom.  Appreciate the lesson and comment

Hi Nigel.  I thought I had most of Klaus Schulze's music but he's done so much I've probably missed quite a few.

Thanks Mark   Appreciate it

Bjorn, this hits me on a visceral level, unlike other songs I've heard from you.  It seems dark and sinister, therefor, cinematic, and ready for a movie or documentary.  Though I've been incommunicado for a while, I've heard most of the songs you posted lately, and you've been keeping the beat going for a long time!

Hi Bjorn.  This does have backing track for a cinema or TV video.  I agree with Nigel above -- it sounds good just as it is.  This number definitely sets a mood early on and maintains it throughout.  Really good stuff pal.

Lynn and freddy,  thanks for the comments.   I was going for a dark sinister tone which seems to have come across.

@bjornpdx Nice to hear you have had a chance to play with the Elka-X not really had much of a chance myself for obvious reasons.  It is a real beast though from what I have had a chance to do with it. Do you really need more on this I doubt it, well perhaps another 10 minuets ;) .  Just sit back close ones eyes and float off drift with it.

🙂

great, as usual....the sequencer parts fit perfectly....had to give it a like even at this stage of creation, i don't think it really needs much else as you have a lot of good stuff mixed really, really well at this stage....but of course, carry on!!!! 🎶🎶🎶🎶
