Live Jam #29 Dark Ambient (Yamaha A3000, PO-24 office)

Published on Nov 12, 2018 Christian's Sonic Spaces

"Well, since a while I had the idea to use my good old Yamaha A3000 as a drone-box, loop station, sound-mangler unit. It has a lot of cool features and should be simply great for that.

This is the second song project using this idea.

First, I sampled three different sounds into the A3000 based on old vinyl recordings. I used for that some of the cool effects the sampler has. The loops all had different length and I didn't care much about perfect looping. This results in a ever evolving soundscape.

When set each sample to loop-mode and the AEG release value to zero, just a single press on the keyboard (in this case the Arturia Beatstep Pro) is enough to let it play forever. Each sample gets his own filter and all cutoffs and levels get their own individual CC controler number. So I can control all of them with the knobs of the Beatstep Pro.

One could also assign for each of the sample an individual out. Maybe next time. For this session I just used the main stereo out which went through a Pigtronix Echolution 2 Deluxe and a GFI System Specular Reverb 2.

In addition I used a Teenage Engineer PO-24 office, which runs through a MWFX Judder, a TC Electronic T2 and a Pigtronix Quantum. Some random stuff I added using a recording with the Ammoon Stereo Looper at half speed and reverse mode.

The signals finally go via a small Behringer mixer straight into the pc. The song was then mastered with just a bit compression and limiting."
