Late night eurorack modular synth jam with friends (make noise, mutable instruments, intellijel)

Yeah, yeah... ever since I got my modular I wanted to create a classic long BURG style track. So I went back to the drawing board, hit some old melodies in C-minor and out came this tune.

A lot of stuff going on in this one, it all starts off with the make noise morphagene doing a really weird and lovely chopped up sample loop of a melody I found...+ the 0-coast on bass, and an arp on the system-1.

The modular has three sounds, the intro sample + sync bass/melody sequence + snare drum fills. The sync sequence is patched to really not play the same tune and/or note ... borderline regenerative, what I do is that I just open up the filter a bit to help pull in/out the main melody when needed.

The elektron fills in with some percussion and bass + the volca bass handles the low-end notes. The other volcas are there as always and do the stuff they do best :)

Ms-20 is treated with some really long tape echoes from the el capistan + a dual splash reverb in the space which really mashed the sound to a super wide palette.. its crazy nice, just love it.

Reface CP, wurly + csidman and strymon bluesky .. + a reverse piano loop on the ditto X2.

NLA1 does some fifth note strings that I control with a swell pedal on the floor, to pull it in/out with the filter ...

Standard TB3 square bass and monologue 16 note modulated sequence to top things off at the end.

Yeah... great fun, too fun actually, I had to do like 5 takes before I was able to nail a version that I was happy with. Apologies for the blinky blink lights but when turning the laser off between takes it defaulted to the annoying mode which I did not realize was on until I was done with the final take.. so tried to smooth it a bit with some faded film style when editing the film to kill off the worst blinky stuff.

Hope you can enjoy it still !! BoOoOoM !"
