Novation SL MKIII Studio Performance -CALC- “Pez River”

Published on Oct 11, 2018 -CALC-

"Here's a little ditty composed and performed on the powerful Novation SL MKIII sequencer/Controller keyboard.
The SL is controlling an ARP 2600, Juno 106, Korg Poly61 M (running through a DIY phaser Mmmmm), SH101 + 0Coast and Yamaha Reface CP alongside the Elektron Octatrack and OTO Boum. Leploop is also connected to clock from the SL MKIII.

Theres 3 drum tracks and a couple of nice Spitfire audio Labs (free plug-ins) providing Strings and Charanga guitar sounds.

It a true hybrid Hardware/Computer combo, Ableton Live is clocking everything through the SL and all the musical elements (bar Ableton's Strings and Charanga guitar parts) are being sequenced by the SL MKIII directly.
My favourite bit is towards the Middle when the Peak has a nice rhythmic Bass line on a monster patch. I called the patch Pez River for some reason and so that's the name of the track.

I have to say that I have fallen completely in love with the SL MKIII workflow, the ability to sequence everything directly from a flagship keyboard is incredible and genuinely music feels so much easier to write now somehow!"
