Track made using the S2400 strictly as a dedicated sequencer

Hey all! I’ve wanted to cover this classic Carpenter theme for a while and last week I decided to give it a shot.

I didn’t want to do a 1x1 cover of the original but my own variation on it. There’s nods to the original “From New York” version as well as the more rock oriented “From L.A.” version but I really think this has it’s own flavor and as such I’ve decided to do this as sort of an unmade sequel version “Escape From D.C.”

All the sounds you are hearing are 100% Prophet X. No user samples but all factory content. I used some of my own patches but also some factory presets as well. Synth piano, electric guitar, and bass orchestral strings, sound effects and three sets of drums (Disco Kit, Techno Kit, Zeus Kit)

I didn’t credit it because no sounds were used but everything was sequenced from the ISLA S2400 believe it or not. I find the sequencing on the S2400 so easy (Although I do wish there was some fixes in the Step Sequencing mode). I essentially just made a song using the dedicated MIDI tracks and synced it to my DAW with about 5-6 passes using the same sequences but different patches. Worked like a charm.

There was an awesome mock poster for Escape From D.C. I found online. I’m not sure of the artist but I would like to give them credit (leave a comment if you know who did it)

Anyway Enjoy!

It’s brilliant, I’m a fan of everything John Carpenter, and this sounds like something straight out of the 80’s. Bravo

Thank you :slight_smile:
