Falling in love with Analord

Recommended Posts

I recently finished buying all the EP's and filling my Analord binder. Took 15 years or so, but I'm glad. Analord was what inspired me to get my first synth after 10+ years of guitar playing and drumming.

Some parts of the series will be in my head almost constantly. Absolutely perfect 10/10. I'm not the hugest fan of analord 9, but it opened me up to some harder acid stuffs

Steppingfilter 101 was an odd choice to kick off the entire series.

(Been a while since I went through the whole thing... not sure I ever did tbh, so... here we go.)

I love that intro, the little tape manipulation and reverbs that come back at the end.

Where's Your Girlfriend would've been fresher, funner, fantasticker and unforgettabler as a series opener imoer.

to me wheres your girlfriend is a depressing beautiful soul wrenching journey into the abyss, not a fun opener. im self employed on the other hanbd..

it was a perfect choice imo because it's low-key, pretty eerie, very nerdy and funky. it's a nice warm-up and a very humble invitation to join the dance of the vampires/witches' rave or something. imo

I enjoy the progression of the series from the sketchy bare bones of 1 and 2, which often sound like tracks of x0x boxes and effects, then starting to get what sounds like some slightly more exotic gear/complex production details by 3 & 4, by 8 to 10 youve got all these breaks, pianos, and stuff like Deadcode or xmd5a which were as cutting edge as Drukqs was a few years prior.

Yeah i can't really think of a better track to begin the Analord collection with.

                                                                                         Fenix Funk 5 & Xmd 5a - Aphex Twin

                                                                    always go first in my journey since they were released first

                                                                                        followed by the rest of Analord by AFX

i could just imagine rdj pulling a roland out from under his bed or whatever, pushing the dust off, pressing a few buttons and making the opening of Fenix Funk 5 in about twenty seconds. just him sliding a knob or two to get those lush sweeps.

Your Soundcloud has some pretty great stuff on it - you got any releases on Bandcamp or the like?

I'll have a look for a MIDI file.

Regarding the stereo pan, the patch was described that way in the Syrobonkers interview:

"that 1.54 is a conventional europatch but dual path , so like 2 mono synths, so 2 filters,2 osc's 2, vcas etc i rek it was mostly doepfer modules, there wasnt many other eurorack modules out then anyhow, you can make the doeper modules sound much smoother/delux like that, 2 of everything and pan it"

Whats your guys philosophy on send and inserts effects ? i see u used arturia and a reverb did u use those on sends or insert.

I feel like my synth patches always come out thin sounding. I am only digital though but i feel like that is a weak excuse plenty of people making phat digital synth patches.
