AQUATARKUS

FROM THE ALBUM "TARKUS" by Emerson Lake & Palmer

Keyboard: Anywhere sounds good.
VCOs: Tune these to the chord CFG with narrow pulse. Later, try square wave for a "full"sound.
Mixer: All 3 inputs equal amplitude.
Filter: Low Pass output
Mode: Track, "Q" at 50% ; Init. Freq. High at 75%
ADSR 1: A — 5 to 10%, D — 15%, S — 10%, R — 5 to 10%, Var. Out: 75%
ADSR 2: A — 0%, D — 0%, S — 100%, R — 0%

BLUE GRASS BANJO

(VERY REALISTIC 5 STRING SOUND)
Uses PAIA P4700/J

Adjust D/A to low range, detune VCOs just a pinch to get realistic string sound. Use alternate tapping on keys to get good blue grass sound or hit "C" chord (2nd C) and at same time hit low "C" note (using both hands) Also strum keys like you would if playing with a pick to get a ukulele. VCF is set on a low range with Init. Freq, and "Q" set to Max.

I'm using (standard) settings for software ADSR parameters in MUS-1 at 3F/04/20/01. Also if you change percussive mode from 3F to BF (non-percussive) it sounds like old pump organ with some notes being just a little flat when chording. Sounds corny, but fun.
