Producers Joe Henson and Alexis Smith, AKA The Flight, have explained how a Yamaha CS-80-inspired synth, the Black Corporation Deckard’s Dream, exemplifies the true “sound of Gotham” in Gotham Knights, an action-based RPG by Warner Bros Games.
Speaking to MusicTech, The Flight explained that over 20 synthesizers were used to create the Gotham Knights soundscape, ranging from the Roland Juno-60 and Korg MS-10 to the Korg ARP Odyssey and Control Synthesis Deep Bass Nine.
However, according to the pair, the Deckard’s Dream synth gives Gotham Knights its dark sound, which is seen particularly in the character themes.
