I used this performance for my 9 minutes of ANCIENT-ness, plus a short bit from RITUAL... Initially I wanted to learn and reproduce Rick Wakeman's brilliant Mellotron parts in Yes's TALES, but I quickly became obsessed with Steve Howe's steel guitar sound. Two months later, I've actually covered half of The Ancient, what a treat to highlight what may be the most underappreciated music from Tales. For me it's magnificent, it always gives me chills!

You can hear the G2X perf. in my rendition of THE ANCIENT: https://thewavos.com/files/1101432/gps-play.htm

The steel guitar and much of the bass used the Nord Modular G2X patches; the rest of the track was done with Arturia's Mellotron and Minimoog plugins and some Native Instruments libraries. I can't sing in Jon's range, so for my vocals I added a simple Vocoder patch in Slot B.
    Slot A: Squire Basses. Variations 1-3 are for Yours Is No Disgrace. Variation 4 is for The Ancient.
    Slot B: Jon Vocoder.
    Slot C: Howe Steel Guitar. There are lots of controllers:
      Control Pedal = Attack Rate. Such a perfect way to do Steve's volume-pedal articulations.
      Sustain Pedal = Added Release.
      Mod Wheel = Subtle Vibrato.
      CC#5 and "A Osc" Knob #1 = Glide Time. Glide is set to "Log", meaning equal glide TIME, no matter the distance.
      Legato Glide: doing this via modules enables "finger glide", i.e. glide only when you play legato
      Global Whl 2 = FM Grit
      plus there are filter morphs "Softer" and "Briter"
    Slot D: Howe's flanged clean electric guitar near the end of Ritual.
