Teenage Engineering Pocket Operator - Lunch break Jam

Published on Mar 16, 2016 Matt Greer

"Teenage Engineering PO-12 Rhythm, PO-20 Arcade & PO-28 Robot with a Korg KP-mini doing a live improvisational synth jam.

Hi Gang,

This is more of an experiment really but it's the first of a series of recordings I'll be doing during my lunch breaks. You see, I started a new diet and I'm not going out for lunch anymore so I have some free time. This was the first test run to see how things would go.

I'm building a larger, all battery powered mini-studio that will fit inside an aluminum case. It will use my Novation Circuit, Pocket Operators, Volca Keys, a couple guitar pedals and a battery powered mixer recording into the trusty DR-05. BUT.. I haven't finished building that yet so this was just a mess around with the PO's.

Don't expect anything magical here. I'm just messing around and I've found this particular signal chain seems to introduce a lot of noise. It'll be better when I split the sync off and send the audio for the PO's into the mixer individually.

Thanks for watching."

KORG VOLCA Keys | Sample | Beats - "Perfecting a Drop" - Live Tutorial / Jam (by justleroy//)

"A quick demo / jam session with a few ways you can get creative with your drops / song arrangements using Active Step, Decay/Delay drops, EG INT, Muting and Filters. This is all done live using the same Pattern throughout - which is a sequence from a SCHØØLTRIP song (

Drop 1 @ 1:03

Apologies for the poor sound quality, just had everything going through an amp for quickness and one mic setup in the room (which isn't a great room)"

2 Korg Volca Beats + a vocoder

Published on Jan 28, 2016 Tony Horgan

"Here I'm sending the left channel of one Volca Beats to a Novation MiniNova, set to the Robot Voice vocoder. The right channel of that Volca Beats goes via a Korg KaossPad Quad for a stereo delay effect. The other Volca Beats is split into two channels on the mixer, EQed so that one has only the bass and the other has only the midrange and treble. The midrange and treble channel gets some reverb from the mixer (a Tascam DP24). All the channels get compression and EQ from the mixer. So from the two "mono" Volca Beats units I have used six channels on the mixer, two of which are set up as stereo pairs. The moral of the story: split the left and right channels of your Volca Beats output to get more interesting sounds!"

"I just plugged that synth on and played a little bit around without looking at the details as well as the manual at all. Also I jumped around the presets that come with this synth. To me this synth really sounded interesting. The design is a great one. And still it is a Korg ;)."

The Machinedrum UW clocks the jam and triggers the 101 sequencer. Way too much Big sky action on everything, and we mess with the settings. Bassdrum is pushing around the Boss RLC compressor into happy places. Oto machines Bim and Biscuit feature too"

New Q173 Gate Math Module

A new modules from

The module is currently up for Pre-order for $268.00. If you want one you might want to sign up as the module will only happen if enough pre-orders come in. Click through for details. The following is a description of the module.  As always, you can click the images on the left and zoom in for larger versions.

"This Preliminary information subject to change.

Q173 Gate Math Module

The Q173 Gate Math module divides and multiplies gates and clocks, produces random gates, sequence patterns, drum patterns and various irregular patterns. Four separate outputs are individually programmed with hundreds of possible options.

Six configurations can be programmed then selected manually or via voltage control. Each configuration selects the options you've programmed for each of the 4 outputs. This allows you to easily switch between divisors or patterns.

Gate output options include Binary which has a 50% gate time, Trigger which has a short 5ms gate time, and Gate which duplicates the width of the incoming gate. The output can be switched between normal and inverted polarity, and the S option causes the first incoming step to be skipped. This allows for an amazing array of possible output patterns.

Each of the 4 outputs can receive its gate/clock from the IN jack, or from other outputs using the Source setting.
Setting options is easy - just set the desired option with the top knob and the three toggle switches, then press the Set button for the output you want to program.

The Simple setting provides quick access to divide-by-2, 4, 8, 16 at the 4 outputs.
Without a plug inserted into the IN jack, the Configuration knob and jack operates as an internal clock source to drive the outputs. This clock is available at the Thru jack. This allows the Q173 to be used as a stand-alone gate sequencer, random gate source, or drum pattern generator.

The Q173's wide array of features and programmability makes it powerful and unique."

VGM #69: Aquatic Ambiance (Donkey Kong Country) - Involved in the Troubles

Published on Mar 16, 2016 Ace Waters

"We started a band. Some of my good friends who all make musical stuff, decided to start doing more things together. We call it Involved in the Troubles. What better song to do as our first song as a band, than Aquatic Ambiance from Donkey Kong Country? Hope it was worth the wait!

Josiah, Rich, Austin and I have been joking about starting a space folk progressive post metal band for a long time. It was always one of those, 'we are laughing, but everyone really actually wants to do this thing' sort of things. We hope to do more covers. We hope to do originals. We just want to make shit together. Involved in the Troubles. More coming soon, probably."
