Live Jam #47 - Electro / Downtempo / Ambient - Korg er-1, Microkorg, Microbrute, eurorack
Published on Aug 17, 2016 Monotrail
"Started this jam with a simple clocked random melodic patch on the modular, and couldn't resists making a nice ambience around it. A little space exploration.
Microbrute is the very recognizable slow gliding baseline. Microkorg plays the chords. Volca sample the steady kick and little wup. Korg er-1 the second kick and hats/noise/snare. Akai apc key 25 is triggering midi clips via Ableton, and two samples from freesound. The modular has a nice simple patch for the random high notes. Main voice is a Dixie II sine through the MMG. A fast sine from Peaks through a vca opened by a random voltage is modulating the Dixies fm. The melody comes from a clocked Doepfer a156 dual quantizer fed with a stepped random voltage from the MFB dual lfo, which in turn is modulated with a slow random voltage from Peaks.
