Here is my latest cover song on Yamaha Genos keyboard, 80s hit Enola Gay by Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark. Sorry, I misspelled the band name in the video, let's just say OMD going forward. Please find the link to my YouTube channel in my bio.
As a side note, this song now uses a further enhanced setup with a second side camera and a better placement of the display camera in place of the normal display. I still sometimes have trouble starting up all cameras when starting OBS but after some unplugging and re-activating it all works out now. I actually do not remember this song from the 80s, let alone its rather sad lyrics. Probably heard the beautiful harmonies and melody first on Ed Starink's Synthesizer Greatest series.
As mentioned in my last song notes, I am doing some more easy songs next. Again, harmonies in verse and chorus are the same but the synth sounds and great melodies just keep coming and coming. The drum computer in the beginning as a 70s Roland CR-78, followed by a real drum set. I doubled a real bass with a synth bass and also added various solo synth sounds and pads. The sounds playing live again double the pre-recorded sounds and also build up to more and more sounds over the song.
As you can see, I had lots of fun with the reverbed snare in the break :-) Again, I am mostly using volume, pan, compressor on the bass, delay, chorus, EQ, and filter to make each sound stand out in the mix. I always dial down the volume of the kick drum so that it does not conflict with the bass sounds. In the end, I just dial in the style / song volume so that the solo sounds are integrated fine without drowning or sticking out too much. At I also adjust the master volume to a level where all sounds are present in the external master compressor / limiter without any pumping or extreme fading when new sounds come in.
