"Winterstorm" intro
« on: December 22, 2003, 02:17:56 pm »
what is that keyboard riff. It seems that there isn't any pure note.. they all are somekind of different frequency than guitar & bass.

So how do you play it? Chords is enough... thanks.

There are notes, but they're just under very heavy modulation. I might be able to find them out, but I can't identify notes by ear quite yet, so it might take a while :)

Just wondering if there is that frequency effect with it... like 5Hz lower than guitars and bass.
Those bass and guitar riffs are a bit easier than keyboards :)

There's actually two frequencies, but one is so slow that you cana ctually hear it, the other is the one that produces the note.

The keyboard isn't one note, but two. this is a trick used by the commodore64 sid chip( or as MS uses, the sidstation). they are pulsed between 2 different waveforms and octaves at 16th step intervals. There's also some bandpass filtering occurring, as well as phase changes. experiment with it and see what happens.

The brown guy at my school thinks Winterstorm is the greatest shit ever.  I mention the song and he's like, "Winterstorm!  Yeaaaaaaaaaaah!"
