Title: Clavinet comp (flac)
Post by: tuneboy on August 27, 2018, 02:52:54 PM

I have collected some clavinet-dominated library tunes onto this comp. I'm not sure that it's a clavinet up front all the time. It could be some other keyboard instruments occasionally, but they all sound clavinet-ish. There were many different models of the clavinet, I gather. And even ARP and Moog synths had clavinet-like sounds (like a hammer hitting a taught electrified metal string). There were also electric harpsichords around. Syd Dale used that a lot. It would be nice to hear some opinions about this. I wonder if anyone can point me to some good clavinet albums.
The link is only for a week. Feel free to re-up.

Thank you Tuneboy.  I love your comps.  You always pick out the good songs.
The Clavinet, hmm?  I wasn't familiar with the instrument.  Thanks for the lesson.

Good to hear, Pal!
I read somewhere that the clavinet was supposed to sound like a mix of an electric piano and an electric guitar. It mostly resembles a modern harpsichord, though. Much used in the first half of the 70's. Abba, ELO, Stevie Wonder, Bob Marley, soul, funk & disco. It's not really a solo instrument.

Lovely stuff - thanks very much!

Much like the Mellotron, the Clav is an instrument which ended up being used in ways which its inventors could never have dreamed of when they first put it on the market.  It's one of my favourite instruments, so a whole compilation of tracks is pretty much heaven for me!

I've downloaded this and the "Vibraphone, Marimba, Xylophone, Bamboo" comp from you, and I've gotta say--- great stuff! Especially like the funky tracks on this particular compilation. Such great compositions, those...
