Hi there,

I've listened to people's patches and performances and often wondered what their finished tracks sound like. I'm keen to hear the G2 in action in a full mix - how other people mix the (well known) G2 sound in with other sound generators, etc.

I'm aware that many people don't actually get as far as finished mixes and that's all good too, but I propose that anyone who has some music online that has been created using a G2, post a link here and briefly explain which sounds were from the G2.

I'm also aware that this web site has an online music section, but it's not G2 specific. Of course, this might not get off the ground, but I'll start it off anyway.

My new track is called Cascades, is trance and can be found here:
http://www.nitetimeproductions.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/music.html (7 other tracks),
http://www.myspace.com/sheridan1uk (3 other tracks),
or by searching for 'Sheridan' here: http://www.betarecords.com (4 other tracks)

The sounds from the G2 are:
The 'mutant percussion' that morphs from a bongo type sound to... er... well, a broken metallic bongo type sound,
The extra long intro sound in the break that starts as a bass 'oooom' and morphs into a distressed, screaming... er... psychotic lunatic,
The modulating bass sound,
The dancing, stumbling band pass sound with the modulated filter,
The slightly metallic sound that comes in with the band pass sound and has backward sounding notes,
The FM buzz sounds that morph to low, swirly electrical hum surge type sounds that sound on the first beat of every 32 or so bars.

So, anyone else up for posting some links? Very Happy

I posted it a while ago, but seeing as it raises the opportunity for some shameless self promotion, what the hell!

http://electro-music.com/forum/topic-12611.html

Everything is coming from just my G2 engine, i have a boss dd20 delay unit patched between the G2 and the stereo input so that I can change patches without the dreaded reload silence, the setup is being controlled by an evolution UC33 knob box.

Hi Sheridan,

I like Cascades; It ends a little quickly though, it would be great if the section starting at 2:52 built up and lasted longer.

Nice one

Thanks Andy... where did you listen to it? The version on my website is only a sample... the other two websites have full length versions of nearly 9 minutes. Unless you meant that it should be even longer than that. Shocked Got any links for us then Andy?

Aha, I only listened to the short version, I will listen to the myspace one now.

Concerning Links, I never finish anything, I just play around Smile

That is so easily done with a G2... when I first got mine, my music production almost completely ground to a halt for several months! Laughing Then the website took all of my time - it's only the last few months that I've really got back into it and now I've got to go back to uni next week! Sad

As there haven't been many posts yet, I hope Stanley's not going to mind me adding a link to one of his G2 tracks that I thought was very impressive: listen to the .mp3 at http://electro-music.com/forum/topic-12851.html

Come on guys, we can't be the only people that actually produce finished music with our G2's... can we? Shocked

A chance for self-promotion; count me in!

My webpage has two tracks; the track "Seeker" is filled with nord g2. Some of the drums have been re-processed by the G2 and all the synth sounds are nord including the opening tweaky monosynth and shimmery bits.

The other track (Babylon) was mostly finished before replacing my Virus KB with the G2.

Feedback welcome!

Alright, here's some stuff done by myself and a mate, we call ourselves Hyperion:

http://www.myspace.com/hyperionlive

All tracks feature a fair bit of G2, basically most of the synth or bass lines originated in the G2.

I'm liking your tracks too Intoxicat!

Nice tracks Max... I spotted the 'bouncing ball' timing/pitch on one of those sounds. Very Happy

Not so sure about the audio quality on the videos though. Sad Can you overlay the actual music recording on it at all?

Thanks for the tumbs up guys Smile

Some nicely produced stuff here..

Sheridan and Afro88 - your stuff makes me wish I hadn't given up going to grimey London clubs.

BobTheDog - unfortunately I havent had opportunity to do a live show yet.. i guess it would mean getting my act together and get a laptop and stuff hehe

cheers

That's actually a Reaktor pitch shifter with feedback Smile

As for the videos, well, we kinda like the fact that it's distorted - it more accurately represents the time and place (ie, it was bloody loud and you can hear people yelling and stuff). We could overlay a recording of the music, but it would kinda go against the grain of a sweaty room in a club with distorted sounds blaring out the speakers Smile There are a couple of live recordings of tracks in the player that are of a much better audio quality though.

Thanks for the feedback Sheridan and Intoxicat Very Happy

Nice work by all. Here's a tune that's more pop than some of the other things here:

http://megasonics.net/index_pointofnoreturn.html

The prominent bass riff was a bass patch that I developed during the first few months I owned the G2. In fact, all synth parts are from the G2. Some people confuse the heavily processed pedal steel for a synth. Original intention of the tune was to do something more club oriented, but the creative crosswinds resulted in this song.

You will find a radically different piece on my website in the music>ambient section. It is called, Mycoglossalalia. This was entirely improvised on a single G2 patch, and a stock patch at that if I remember correctly.

I wrote lots of things about what I used the G2 for on this release and just noticed it never came out for some reason.. annoying but no doubt my fault Smile

In short.. "Hoody" has loads of G2.. most of the synths. "Where there you been gone find it" had lots of resampling again and again thru nord g2 effects.

Well, I've heard some great music here, that's for sure! There have been more links than I was expecting, allthough I was hoping for a few more details on which sounds were from the G2, so I could see how people were using it. I understand that this might be a bit of a hassle, but without those details, we're just turning this post into a 'shameless self promotion' post (as mentioned above), which wasn't quite the idea... there is another forum for that.

Still, good to hear some 'different' music all the same.

Luca, was the electric guitar sound you used also from the G2? If so, then well done... very good.

Thank you, Sheridan.
Yes, the guitar-like lead is pure G2 without any external effect.
About details... here is a description of sounds i've used on that songs.

Red Dragon Pt.2

  • Distorted Bass: made using a modified NL2 template
  • Evil Lead: this is the first one. Same as above.
  • Hammond: a custom patch made using filter's self oscillation as tonwheels
  • Strings: custom patch using JP8080 schema. A supersaw and a pulse.
  • Killer Wah: one of my "signature" sounds. Pure G2 powah Very Happy


Spring Star

  • Warm Pad: NL2 template preset
  • Noisy drone: another NL2 template
  • Killer Wah: same as Red Dragon. I've used three different version of this sound, mixed together.


Too Warm Today

  • Mutant Lead: coolcat's patch. I love it Smile
  • WhackyLoLSeq: a crazy fm/wavetable like patch you can listen after the first solo.
  • Jens Lead: emulation of Jens Johansson signature lead.
  • A bunch of sequencers used to control a K2500R.


Fourtheen
Pure G2 madness here. The sequence is a Dasz preset while, other sounds, are "real time" generated... those noises are my room noises and speech. An heavy amplification stage creates a lot of feedbacks and bleeps.

Una Goccia di Sudore
This is more a Reaktor driven song. G2 was used only for the bell-like melody (a custom additive or modal patch.. don't remember) and the vocal-like sound you can hear after 3:30. The pitch will raise slowly mutating from a very low vocal to an high melodic sound. This is a stockhausen based patch i've built after read Curtis Roads Microsounds book. Its controlled using the Powerglove.

That's all, folks Wink

Cheers,
Luca

most of my patches are song specific and I don't even bother saving a lot of them once I have recorded what i need, I couldn't even remotely tell you how most of them functioned now.. the best I can do is remember what percentage of the track was G2 or originally G2.
Personally I think it's the final result that matters Wink
