Hawkeye - Zero Circuit (C64 SIDs vs Ensoniq ESQ-M, live)

Published on Jan 12, 2018 Maelstroem3

Note the yellow Waldorf micro Q Rack with custom chrome knobs.

"The MBLoopA is a fun tool to record ideas, while it lacks quite a lot of features of its bigger brother, the MIDIbox sequencer, it focusses on the essentials, offers an easy workflow and is totally sufficient to record smaller tracks - the graphical noteroll display helps a lot to visualize what is going on.

This live jam (recorded directly from the synths) also features the MBProgramma, that controls the Ensoniq ESQ-m (bassline).

The MBLoopA has six MIDI looping tracks, that can be independently muted and unmuted - also, it offers eight "scenes" that can be switched through, once again, this is used for transposing.

Synths used:
Yamaha FS1R: First lead
2x C64 8580 SIDs (in a MB6582): Second lead
Ensoniq ESQ-m (ESQ-1 in rack): bassline
Elektron Machinedrum: drums
MFB Dominion I: percussive synth voice
Alesis Andromeda + Kawai K5000R: Pad

Hope you enjoyed it!
Thanks for watching and listening!
Hawkeye/Maelstroem Records"
