Written in 1986 for a video presentation at Apple. This uses sounds generated by an Ensoniq ESQ-1 and a Roland D110 (gotta love those chiffy flute sounds). Sequenced on a Mac using Opcode Vision 2.x. Recorded in 1988.

Famous synth sounds.
I forget. Was the D110 before or after the Shakuhachi flute? Where is that
link someone posted the other day.....

Anyway. Cool track. I particularly like the second half where you get the
rythm out of a melodic loop. I could have used a bit more bass in that
part, though.

Thanks for posting. Nice piece.

I think you're thinking of this thread started by Ed Hannifin:

Famous Synth Sounds

Depends on whether you think of that as the Shakuhachi or the Roland Chiff Flute sound (pretty derivative either way :-)). When I read that forum I realized how many of those sounds I had used over the years.

A lot of those sounds have also become standard GM (General Midi) sounds since Roland helped define the sound set.
