Quick Session: Acidic Failure (Elektron Analog Rytm)

Published on Mar 4, 2016 my4trackmachine

"I have been getting more involved with my Rytm and have been exploring the performance aspect of it. In the past I have used the C64, Volca Bass, or DSI Mopho to imitate 303 style acid lines. None of these tools have proven to be very effective as a true tb-303 imitation. This time around I used the Rytm's filters coupled with some sampled one osc cycles made from a 303 vst. I went a step further and decided to add some other waveforms to give my Rytm more solid ground for synthesis as well.

After all the ground work I programmed a quick 64 step loop, played with sound design, and programmed some performance macros for live tweaking of sounds via the pressure sensitive buttons on the machine. From there it was just tweaking and playing. Unfortunately there was an issue with my recording device. For that reason the recording quality is lower then usual. I will say that the Rytm's filters are pretty great for that acid sound even if you can't really hear it here. Good fun. I learned a lot. I am happy with it."
