Tunes I recorded in the 90s found on a few cassette tapes in my folks’ loft.
- Yamaha MT8X multitrack cassette recorder
- Kawai Q80EX sequencer
- Yamaha TG100 synthesizer
- Kawai XS-1 synthesizer
- Alesis Quadraverb+ multi-effects unit
- Zoom 9050s multi-effects unit
Neither the TG100 or XS-1 were particularly flexible – they’re fairly basic romplers – and neither had filters. Anything that sounds like a filter is the wah/autowah/cry from the Zoom 9050s.
Things which would take a few minutes with a computer now took a few hours to programme on the Q80EX – I spent a big amount of time looking at a small amount of LCD screen.
I can’t remember if the MT8X was synched to the Q80EX or the other way around but one of them was definitely synched to the other.
