Hi ! I have never posted there but some people may remember me from the NM mailing list. I am currently a professor of Mathematics at the Lycée Sainte-Geneviève in France and I practice synthesizers as a hobby. Got my first MicroModular back in 1999.

Here's a recording of a recent live performance by myself and a former student of mine. This took place at the opening of the annual classical music concert performed by our students in the Lycée's chapel (you will notice the distinctive massive natural reverberation of the place).

http://dsp.prod.free.fr/Concert/Audio/0403O2remaster.mp3

The main sounds come from 3 Nord Modulars :
one G2X, one G2 and one NM classic. An Ultranova was used for some additional sounds, and the Mellotron choir sound from the last part is played from a Roland XV-5050 module. We used additional delay effects from the 01V96 mixing desk. No external sequencer was involved.

The picture below is taken from the last rehearsal session:

Posted Image, might have been reduced in size. Click Image to view fullscreen.

The main organ sound involves a tweaked version of Per Blom's BBD chorus from his Solina patch (thanks a lot for that superb patch, Per!), and the lead sound from Oxygene part 2 borrows some elements of the "Back to 73" factory sound. Apart from that, all the patches have been built from scratch. I will upload some of them soon.[/img]

This is very impressive. Beautiful performance.

Who were you on the old NM list?

Lycée Sainte-Geneviève - sounds like a great place; my daughter is named Genevieve, but she isn't a saint. Smile

Thanks for posting this.

I'm having a bit of a JMJ renaissance at the moment, and wanted to say how great this sounds! Excellent emulation. Heartening to know that the humble Nord is still an excellent low-cost alternative to a VCS3! Well done! Very Happy

I find the Nord an alternative for so many synths. Smile

I will never sell my G2 Engine! Smile To think I was a bit apprehensive about buying it in 2005 as all I could find were "Techno and House" demos on the net (not quite my cup of tea Smile ) but I took a punt as it was a bargain price, and could not be without it.

I finally got the time last night to check these sounds out on the G2. They are great. Very Happy

The E310U Oxy1 Delay really astounded me for its authenticity, and a great testament for how versatile the G2 is!

A note for other people trying them out (I may be stating the obvious, but it baffled me for a little while). A lot of sounds when loaded didn't appear to make a sound on my system where I only have outputs 1/2 connected to my mixer. When I looked further I found that a number of the patches are set to use the 3/4 outputs, and once I selected 1/2 on the output module, I was away making noises!

Thank you Derek.

And sorry for not stating that the 3/4 outputs were heavily used!
I will update the patches whenever I can!

No worries, Very Happy

And something I've learnt to check for when auditioning other patches. Very Happy
