This kind of sound (Karma police) ?
« on: May 30, 2014, 12:01:05 am »
I want to play the lead part (Jonny) of the song Karma Police with the microbrute.. I have many difficulties to find a sound close to this live, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NlQhgdVsuI4

He's playing a Rhodes electric piano sound. That will be difficult to recreate on the Microbrute. Plus, if you want to emulate the kind of lead part he's playing using a Microbrute, forget it. He's playing polyphonically and dynamically (that is, using keyboard velocity), which is impossible on the Microbrute. My advice is that you add a polyphonic synth with a sampled Rhodes piano sound to your setup if you want to play lead lines like this.
