A Nostalgic Phase

Published on Jul 17, 2017 voltlife

"I just got myself a Minilogue, which is the first analogue polyphonic keyboard I've had in a long time, so of course the first thing I did was run it through Kaminiec for liquid phasey sweeps that took me right back to my JMJ-idolising childhood. Add a chugging bassline through plenty of delay, some low-fi analogue percussion and some random squelches, and the 70s electronic nostalgia-fest is complete.

It's not all retro analogue styles, though. The Minilogue chords (shamelessly stolen from you-know-who) go through Kamieniec into Clouds, which I use to pitch shift and freeze the output. Clouds is modulated by an Erica Octasource and occasionally trigger by bursts from Drezno, while Demora and Erbe Verb add echoes and space to the bassline and percussion. There are a few missteps with chords and mixing, but it's fun to play!"
