Live Modular Synth Performance "The Canyon" by POB

Published on Jan 21, 2018 Patrick OBrien

"This live modular synth performance is the final patch based on the one I created for Qu-Bit Electronix's Instagram Story Takeover.

The patch features several Qu-Bit modules: Pulsar, Contour, Octone, Tone, and Nebulae.

When I took over Qu-Bit's Instagram Stories, I built a patch in 24 hours (link here to that patch BTW: but then expanded on that quite a bit more, adding in lush melodies (with the Sputnik Modular keyboard and Mangrove oscillator) and more intense percussion (with Noise Engineering's Manis Iteritas and Mutable Instruments Warps for some effects)

The two samples in this patch (violins and choir) were created in Kontakt then exported to .wav files and added to the Nebulae.


Various sections in this patch:
0:00 Melodies
3:20 Discovery
5:03 Intense
6:48 The Jam
10:04 Calling
11:48 Reprise
13:49 Fade


All sounds mixed out through Erica Synths Black Stereo Mixer, sent to Ableton Live for master file creation for YouTube, SoundCloud, Facebook and Instagram.

I recorded video with a GoPro 4 then manually synced the video with the audio using iMovie.

All modules were inside a 12U Gemini 0104 case from Monorocket.


No computers were used in the performance of this piece. All modular synths, recorded live in a single take.
