Distco - Goodbye Girl (an 80's-style modular track)

Published on Aug 21, 2018 Distortion Productions

"My fav patch in quite awhile. It developed out of the previous more somber 'Magnesium' patch. I sequenced a much more prominent bassline on the Cwejman VCO-6 with the Erica Synths Sequential Switch V2 + CV Expander and an 80's beat on the Shakmat Four Bricks Rook. Modulating the release on the ADSR-VC2 and cutoff on the MMF-1S with the D-LFO gave the VCO-2RM melody some nice variations on tone and timing.

Lately, I've found that I want to improve a patch and re-record it using one of my nicer cameras and audio interface. But then something drifts, whether it's the timing of the sequencer, the tuning of the oscillator or snare, or the hi-hat is out of sync. I try to bring back the sound of the previous recording, but no matter what I do, I can't get the same feel back. When you're working with electrical voltages, things seem so fleeting. But it all seems to be intrinsic to modular synthesis."
