The Beach Boys - Good Vibrations - 5 programs for song list

Postby WannitBBBad » 28 Jul 2018, 06:39

I've had the Nord Stage 3 a few months now and enjoying everything about it. I was listening to the classic "Good Vibrations" by the Beach Boys that has quite a few different parts throughout the song and decided to take a stab at it. Below are five separate programs to use in song mode as you step through the song. The MP3 covers the reverb B3, synth cellos with Tannerin, detuned piano, and harmonica with B3. Program 5 (not on the MP3) includes voices to layer over those singing at the end. The Tannerin sound in Program 2 has after-touch for the vibrato, however I use the sustain pedal to hold the synth "cello" note so my left hand is free to use the pitch bar for the Tannerin to make it sound more like the original. Make sure you download all five programs - the text for each file describes some of the sounds captured.

The programs below use all the "stock" samples except for my program using "Flute.nsmp3" in location 268; this is a great flute sample with little noise. It doesn't matter which sample memory locations you store new samples in your Nord Stage 3, just make sure that after you load a program, that you point the Slot A and/or Slot B Synth to the correct sample in your system. For example, if you load the Flute into your sample location 280 (268 in mine), then you just need to point Slot B to 280 rather than 268.

I'll revise this post as needed based on questions, so feel free to comment.
Take care.
