DreamsOfWires - Mini Mod & Ring SM (with some Atlantis)
Published on Nov 24, 2016 DreamsOfWires
"This was a spur of the moment recording, but I was playing around with the Ring SM and in a 'scary soundtrack' kind of mood, so I turned on the cameras in case anyone might want to hear it. It was recorded in one take, no multi-tracking. All sounds are the Mini Mod and Ring SM, except the shrill notes that come in at 5:10; they are from the Intellijel Atlantis, which is also running through the Mini Mod's VCA and using the second Contour Generator envelope for volume. Ignore my messy patching, I was just changing things as I thought of it.
Whilst I was creating the sounds it reminded me of an old recording I made using the Moogerfooger Ring Modulator, so I added the Atlantis into the mix here to give it that Roland-esque sound element. I've added a link to that recording at the end of the video for those who haven't already seen it.
The Mini Mod really can sound huge, warm, and characterful. It seems difficult to make it sound bad.
