Cobra Starship


Ryland Blackinton is the lead guitarist for the band Cobra Starship. They are best known for their songs "Bring It (Snakes on a Plane)" from their 2006 album While the City Sleeps, We Rule the Streets as well as "The City Is at War" and "Guilty Pleasure" from their 2007 album ¡Viva La Cobra!.

Mound of Wires (Factory Sound Bank / Thor Patches / Bass)

The THOR polysonic synth is probably my favorite overall. Namely, the "Mound of Wires" patch and the "Talkbox Bass" patch.

MELSTRINGS (Factory Sound Bank / NN19 Sampler Patches / )

"MELSTRINGS.smp" is a killer string synth. That particular patch is all over the new record right now. It has a great motown/hip hop vibe.

Eau de Neon (Factory Sound Bank / Malström Patches / Rhythmic)

The Malstrom has all the best arpeggiated/sequenced patches. Some of the rhythms are really inventive like the "Eau de Neon" patch.

RhodesMk1Mute (Factory Sound Bank / ALL Instrument Patches / Piano and Keyboard / Electric Piano)

The NN-19 is the best where emulation is concerned. The best would be the rhodes patches. "RhodesMk1Mute.smp" and "RhodesMk1Trem.smp."

Custom Redrum Patch (Factory Sound Bank / Redrum Drum Kits / xclusive drums-sorted)

I use the same redrum patches for almost everything we program. My kick: "bd_dubfire." My snare: "sd2_vintage." In fact, almost all of the "vintage" drum samples are key. Oftentimes, I pair "sd2_vintage" with "sd_tresor." I love that 80's snare sound with a lot of release. Manipulating the length and pitch of these samples can get you really neat tones also.
