The most successful ostinato melodies in techno music may be taken from radio translations, which make this technological style of music more authentic. Such melodies may be a recording of radio loop or Ether resynthesis using original Morse code message as an inspiration. The later allows avoiding Ether noises such as clicks, but loses the original radio translation atmosphere. Today, I will play Top 3 techno tracks, which use Morse code as a track main line, using both approaches.
- Dubfire & Oliver Huntemann – Diablo (Original Mix)
The first line is Ali Shirazinia aka Dubfire with Diablo track. The main hook of the track is a radio loop, which sounds as an Ether recording. The sound of this translation taken from Morse code key for manual or automatic telegraph messaging.
The translation reads as:
. .. .. .. (EIII)
- Gaiser – Ciliate with
On the second place, there is Jon Gaiser with his resynthesizing passion for short Morse code messages. The track is Ciliate with from Blank Fade album. Having the idea of showcasing different variations of a short radio loop, Jon uses resynthesis as a source of inspiration.
The track translation reads:
… . (SE) with variation on … .. (SI)
- Boosty – Wavescanner
On the third place there is Ruslan Yusipov with his Boosty alias. Ruslan uses Funky key sound to resynthesize original translation.
The track translation reads as:
. .. (EI)
If you would like to use radio translations in your tracks, I recommend purchasing SASER Max for Live from Compositor Software. With its use, you can enhance your productions with resynthesized radio translations in Gaiser style and one-bar loops recorded directly from the Ether like in Diablo track.
