Here I will show you that you can break that song down into its instrument tracks , and perform an acoustic analysis of each and every sound. I will show you that it is possible to reproduce that with a cheap minimal equipment, just by ear and instinct, with no scores, no MIDI file, no computer. All is hand played except for rythmics part … this is real music recorded with my “old school” method ! In this first part, I try to reproduce the rythm played in the original JMJ’s Oxygene, with the Korg MiniPops 7 ; here, I used a standalone free application called Rythmus by ElektroStudio. In that software, you can adjust the volume of each sounds, the pan, the tune, the volume and the global tempo ; 2 presets are used simultaneously : Beguin and Slow Rock for Oxygene 2. The next part I will show you how to make all noises (ocean, wind, storm, randomized short sequences) with Roland SH-101, Electro-Harmonix Memory Boy (tape delay), Small Stone Phase Shifter (phaser).
