Korg DS-10 Track 57

This is Track 57. It kinda came to life as I was finishing Track 56 and discovered a cool patch that I had to use for a new tune (doesn't take much).

Percussions on this one are rather simple as it's pretty much all sorts of claves. What are claves? you may ask. Well, it's basically two sticks that you bang together.

For the two synthesizer voices, there's really not that much to say except that I have apparently made use of the old arpeggio effect, so dear to most synthesizer keyboard players. Arpeggiating means that you play a series of notes one octave apart. There's all kinds of variations you can bring in but that's the basic idea and it's pretty cool ... when used sparingly, of course.
