Jupiter 100% - An Online Compilation

Postby sjones » Sat Mar 03, 2007 9:26 pm

How about it? Make your tune and post a link here. The rules are:

1. Original piece, 2 minutes or so
2. No sampling - MIDI/CV sequenced/triggered or multi-tracked is OK
3. No other instruments - Just the Jupiter 4, 6, 8 or Super Jupiter MKS-80

Ready? Lets try to get this done by August 31st.

Submission - Under Orbit

Postby sjones » Sun Mar 04, 2007 10:37 am

Here is one to get this thing started.

This was done with my JP-4 and JP-6 triggered off the same pulse from a TR606. I did two tracks of manual overdubs.

Looking forward to hearing yours.

very nice.

i like how you positioned stuff in 3D, the portamento sound (i presume jup6) that is in the room background - what reverb device did u use?

it sounds as if the wet/dry ratio is almost 100% ..


i love that gentle, watery jup4 sound. my friend has one and i played it couple of times. i'm seeing one for me down the road, it could definetely play well with jup8, even tho there's resemblance when jup8 is set to 24dB mode, the oscillator texture sounds different enough ..

question:
'no sampling'

so i can't play/midi/CV something, and then once it's tracked, i can't loop it?

Thats right. The idea is to create linear music, I believe. Because these are analogue synths they have very subtle characteristics that develop in linear playing. If you loop it via MIDI/CV, I think that is fine. But sampling it would really just give a snapshot and would open the musical ideas to something less pure, for instance creating a bunch of samples for percussion. While that is cool to do and many people do it, it takes things out of context.

I think the big goal of this is to hear the Jupiters as pure as possible. I hope it won't be a hindrance, but a source of inspiration.

I also realize that you'll probably be digitally recording your tracks which is essentially sampling anyway .. but, I hope you understand what I'm getting at here.

Cluster -

The JP6 is doing the background sweeps. Its the same patch I posted 'glitch' as with portamento and bender settings. The JP6 and the JP4 were recorded together with the TR-606 providing the trigger/clock. The reverb is a T.C. Electronic M-one XL.
I "sampled" everything on my HDR 24/96 ;-)

Well done and a nice track!

I like the idea of this online compilation and as i have a MKS-80 in the studio, i`ve done a demotrack, too. Here`s mine:

Just MKS80 and delay/reverb, multitracked in Logic Pro.

I agree with this stance. Although I have recorded short (and long sequences) from my Super Jupiter and then arranged and repeated them in tracks, I think it is better to take advantage of that analog variability. I only worked the way I did as a short cut. It was not ideal, and if I were to do that again, I'd record multiple takes to use in the arrangement.

I also agree with this. A lot of my best work has been done within imposed constraints.

I'll do a song eventually. I was really hoping to make a jupiter drum kit. I'll have to come up with a midi percussion solution instead.

I'm going to assemble the play list of the few so far and create a link under the JP-6 picture above so people can listen to it as progress is made. I look forwarding to see more examples ;-)
