Oh come on now. You really think number is my sort of thing? If I contributed it would be far more likely to be number or possibly number.

Besides which I said I was going to try to produce a track without Yoshimi (and have 5 other synths).

Sheesh!

Ok, it appears I missed the pertinent detail "4" in my post.
I know you were doing a non-Yoshimi entry but as we have more entries than entrants I wondered if you'd sneaked in a bonus one as well.

I've had these on in the background today but I'm going to have to give them all a much more thorough listen later as there's so much happening in the details. :clap::clap::clap:

Let the speculation continue!

Yes. That really grabbed me too... And an excellent choice as the last one in the list.

Quite a few people contributed who's style I'm not familiar with, and surprised Drew has joined in - always thought of him as a real+voice sort of guy.

I'm not helped by the fact I've no experience of most of the synths either :(

I'm guessing Roland JDXi for track 8

Oops. Lack of attention on my part :blush:

A pure guess. Bob Bickerton for track 14.

You were very defensive of track 4 previously [with a mental block on writing "4"] and now you mention "forth". For those spurious reasons alone, ill put you down for track 4, with the SC55, in the garden.

Folderol wrote: Tue Oct 04, 2022 8:25 pm I'm guessing Roland JDXi for track 8

It is tempting to go for that as well but words like "Synthesizer" & "Analogue"
are on the Arturia Micro Freak vocal oscillator word set.
but "Winter" isnt.
Hmmm.

Ill go for it

Track 8:Arturia Micro Freak

Track 4:Roland SC55.

There have been two correct instrument guesses so far, but naturally I'm not going to tell you which ones :P

You're supposed to make an echo-y scary laugh when you say that :?
