Noggin – Untitled TMFM20100807

Part 1

Title: Untitled tmfm20100807
Artist: Noggin
Album: As Yet Unknown
Release Date: 2010

This is just a bs jam I did with a recently acquired Yamaha TX-81Z synthesizer running into my reel to reel. This is the first tape I ever made on that machine, I believe. Finally pulled the sounds off and sequenced this little diddy last summer…it was recorded in Nov of 09 I believe.
Fun fact:
The Sega Genesis sound chip was a 6 part multi-timbral, 4 operator FM synth from Yamaha (+sample channel).
The TX-81Z is an 8 part multi-timbral, 4 operator FM synth from Yamaha.
Is it any wonder everything you do on the TX sounds like Golden Axe or Altered Beast?
