portamento question

  • looks like a pitch bend based on the 17 second mark where he's pitching down. sounds like he might have the portamento on. notes seem to glide.

    a the end of that clip it looks like one of the dudes is giving his mate a neck massage!


    pmsl ;D I thought he was cleaning his ear out for him !

    Sounds like he has got portamento on, pitch bending and modulation. Wicked bass sounds over old skool drum sounds. Great little vid that. :)

    yeah there's one track off his album that's even more wicked - 10 minutes of spaced-out synth improvisations with exactly those kind of bass sounds. it's called "brookside park", not on youtube unfortunately.

    the reason i'm asking is, i'm thinking about getting a multi-purpose vintage synth ... not only for pads & leads but i'd like to get some fat bass sounds out of it too. my initial idea was juno 60 or polysix, but they both don't have any portamento. :-/
