^^ The MPC contains MIDI events for the nord, and also, a few Nord patches contain note sequences.
I've extracted from the MPC all those MIDI events meant for the Nord, and imported them into Reaper (a newer version of the Echoplex reconstruction), although not entirely sure about their exact location and length. Happy to share it if you want.
i still don't have reaper myself but would appreciate it for future explorations!
this talk about MIDI events in the nord made me delve more into the different sets to figure out why there were very different nord moments in the same track, towards the end (~54 min Ontario/Toronto, ~49 min Echoplex Amni Remaster). Ontario has a much sweeter melody while Echoplex has a more tense atmosphere, and no nord 'sirens' if you will.
At first i thought Rob could be just improvising with the G2 keyboard, but i listened again to both sets and I see the same "tense" melody appearing in Ontario in the preceding track (~52m) and the nord sirens appear, albeit a quite damp, later in the Echoplex (~53m).
So it seems he just anticipated the MIDI changes in Ontario to create a completely different atmosphere in each set. Very interesting
btw I know this is an Echoplex reconstruction but the Ontario 54min moment is pure bliss
