"Synth Trombone" - New Video by The Art of Jazz

The latest video on the Charles Neuzil Music YouTube Channel was recorded on July 5, 2020.  I combined my trombone with some synthesizers, specifically the Arturia Drumbrute Impact and the Behringer TD-3.  I ran a converted audio signal from my trombone out of the Best Brass Practice Mute through three pedals.  The pedals include a Boss RV-6 Reverb, a Boss DD-7 Delay, and a TC Electronic Dark Matter Distortion (I liked the name of this one!). 

I use a pattern on the Arturia Drumbrute Impact and a bass line on the Behringer TD-3.  I tuned the TD-3 to play off of a Bb Dominant 7, and then work around that chord on my horn.  I run the trombone through the reverb, and then add in the delay.  I then add the distortion.  I go back to reverb and delay, and then finally, back to just the reverb and wrap it up. 

This was challenging, but a great deal of fun to put together.  It took quite a bit of planning and preparation.  Lots of notes taken in the process. 

Hope you enjoy this as much as I enjoyed creating it! 

Thanks in advance for watching and listening.  Let me know if you have any questions.
