Archive 1991: Sunburst

The ultimate trance track

Above the image of the legendary Roland TB 303. Often used in our recordings, which was not an easy task, the 303 didn’t support MIDI. We needed a work around to convert the CV gate signal to get it in sync with the other (often analog) synthesisers.

Basically it turned out that every time you wanted to play the 303, you needed to start the song from the beginning.

In the case of “Sunburst” we first created the 303 pattern, and sampled it to have more control over it during the recording process, the filtering was done on the mixing desk.

By my knowledge this song is not for sale anymore (and if you do, or somebody does, contact me). It used to be released with a remix done by Cubic 22.
