Or Seventh Son; which is a pretty stellar album apart from the one shitstain called Can I Play With Madness? Somebody got problem with SiT synths, however no problems with this AOR synth-driven commercial p.o.s
Let's clarify a few things @Zare :
Of course the actual synthetic sounds (or samples) are independent from the interface you control them with. Your point is still incorrect. If the drummer played on a modified computer-keyboard that had the possibility to control all these technical parameters you talk about, the result would end up sounding differently than if he played on just a regular computer keyboard, and it would certainly also end up sounding different if he played on a 'real' electronic drumset, even though the samples are the same and even though he can control all the same parameters, because obviously he would just play it differently. Same thing applies to synth guitars vs keyboards. The interface/instrument you use to control midi makes a huge difference.
For me, the "dated" aspect of SIT is the sound, rather than song structure.
If you were making an album today, you would not want it to sound anywhere near like SIT.
Controversial? It's guitar synthesisers they were using, not xylophones. How is it any more controversial than using a keyboard? If one calls the actual sound of the synthesiser "static" then you don't know what you're talking about. That's all I was saying.Well, I get you guys really like the sound - and mind ye, I'm not all that opposed to it myself, I simply think it makes the album a tad monotonous and I must be in a mood for it, more than with SSOASS which has also 80's production, but a much subtler one (and please remember that SIT used to be my #1 album for a looooong time - nearly ten years, IIRC) - but do you seriously insist that the sound can't be a bit controversial? In spite of how specific the sound is?
Indeed. Did anyone even mention song structure anyway?Yeah I know you meant the sound. My point stands.
I don't give a damn what you'd want to do today, when I'm talking about an album made in 1986. That's the point.
