Hello Music and Synth lovers,

every Synth Nerd has to do a "Switched-on" track at least once, I guess. 
Since my sister married recently again, this was the perfect opportunity 
for me to see what I could do with just one monophonic analog 
synthesizer module from Behringer for my interpretation of Bach's famous 
"Air" from BWV 1068.

I recorded this with Ardour 6 on Manjaro Linux, track by track, first as 
MIDI and then replayed and recorded as audio, so I could ride the filter 
cutoff or other parameters during recording. Then I exported the stems 
of all audio tracks, re-imported them into a a new Ardour session and 
mixed it there, using a 4-band EQ, a compressor and several reverb sends 
on each track, chorus and low-/highpass filter on a few track, as well 
as a multi-band compressor and EQ on the master bus.

Equipment used:

- Behringer Pro-One
- Focusrite Scarlett 6i6 Mk 1
- Tuxedo Laptop with AMD Ryzen 7
- AKG K240 Headphones

Software used:

- Ardour 6
- ACE Compressor
- Calf Multiband compressor
. Glame High-/Lowpass Filter
- LSP Impulse Reverb Stereo
- SamplicityM7 Impulse Response "Boston Hall A"
- CAP PlateX2 Reverb
- YK Chorus
- x42-dpl Limiter

Share & Enjoy
