Michael Jackson - Don't Stop Til You Get Enough
This is a pretty basic 3 zone setup, but I did a few new things that I wanted to share.
I increased the velocity response on the lead string sound to get a more aggressive sound without playing hard. This makes it easier to play the 16th notes on the intro.
On the intro, I also play the root position triads (B and A) and double the root with my thumb. this triggers a special brass program that does a sfz - cresc sound in major chords. I think it worked well with my small band (no horns).
The 3rd bank button adds some string pad to the rhodes.
Behind the guitar solo, I used sampled brass sounds for the lead notes layered on top of the synth sound. It may not be perfect, but i felt it gave the best combination of real-ness and fat-ness.
If anyone chooses to try this setup, please let me know what you think.
