BURG - when kings were mountains (modular, morphagene, avalon bassline)

I wanted to take my modular system out for a spin with the Avalon bassline in a minimal polyrhythmic jam, this is what happened. :)

The Avalon Bassline, of course does the square bass, on this I also have the CSIDMAN from catalinbread for some glitchy madness + a simple short plate reverb from the strymon bluesky.

The modular has two signal paths, one with percussion passing through the Keeley Caverns, treated with some delay and reverb. The main sound sources is the Peaks, doing kick and snare..snare being fed through the uVCF for for modulated HPF with a slight bit of resonance. Sequenced by beatstep pro.

BIA takes care of some hihat/percussive sounds on the top, modulated by PAM / LFO's / Gates, and sequenced by beatstep pro.

The second signal path passes trought he RE-20 (tape delay + EQD tranmisser modulater reverb which i pull in from time to time)

The morphagene has a piano sample that i recorded in my computer using NI una corda vst, smashed and trashed to pieces in the MG. For starters it goes in reverse, with several slice points which are being scrubbed start/end point with modulation + that the organize is also being modulated. (LFO from expert sleepers + Tides)

MI braids does the "normal" sequence 3xSAW, passing through the Ripples which act both VCA and filter, envelope from the maths controls both the filter and VCA at the same time.. sort of LPG but not really.

Rings does what the rings does does, modulated slightly by the PAM to give it some irregular movements.

Current modular rack:

Gear used: Abstrakt Instruments Avalon BassLine
FX used: Strymon bluesky, EQD tranmisser, RE-20, keeley caverns, catalinbread CSIDMAN

Hope you will enjoy it!
