Dream Arpeggios

Published on Jul 4, 2018 Kris Lennox

"Turning the Obi into a Celeste. Also sounds like a triangle at the double-note trill section.

RE the title i.e. 'Dream Arpeggios' - clearly I'm talking through a hole in my bum with such a title. In much the same sense that videos titled 'God Chords' are also utter nonsense. Try saying any of these terms to real musicians and you'll likely be laughed out the room.

It is, however, part of my marketing ploy to take over the world. Or rather - gives context to the sound for non-musicians.

PS this recording, as of all recent recordings - is just a muck-around and the playing shouldn't be taken too seriously."

the info from AS says:

What is it!?

Generator is a highly versatile multi channel analogue step sequencer. It provides a fun and intuitive, yet powerful way to create rhythms and melodies with your modular and CV sequencers.

Why do I need this Sequencer? What’s so special?

Generator is a very compact and high quality step sequencer. It’s USP is that is is a playable sequencer. You don’t just set up a sequencer and leave it looping. The UI is designed in such a way as to make it easy, fun and intuitive to alter the rhythm and to get alternative sequences playing using the real time touch pads.

Generator has plenty of scope for re-patching the signals using CV leads, or via the pre-configured switches.

Generator is super easy to hook up to your analogue synthesisers, Eurorack, and other analogue gear.

Sync to DAW is very easy and solid, using MIDI note 60 (on channel 1). Play that note and the sequencer will step.

No menus of multi-button pressed. WYSIWYG front panel control.

Generator can be as complex or as simple as you want it to be

We have given this sequencer a large and diverse number of controls, that along side the patch sockets, will give even the best and experienced electronic musician endless possibilities.

We have presented the controls in a user friendly and familiar sequencer layout that, together with this manual and other resources, enable even the new guy to get great patterns quickly.

No compromise has been made with the construction of Generator. Cheaper parts have not been used!

Full rugged steel/aluminium case - no plastic mouldings
Good quality smooth, fully sealed against dust
Good quality knobs
Gold plated touch pads
Analogue step voltages
Full 16 steps, 3 CV channels, Gate channel
Designed, built, tested and assembled in the UK
6 part Voltage Generator
So many sockets!

Roland BOSS Dr Rhythm DR-55

via this auction

"Roland BOSS Dr Rhythm DR-55 Analog Drum Machine. The DR-55 was one of the first analog drum synths available. It can be programmed with 8 loops: six 16-step loops and two 12-step loops. Tempo, tone, and accent are adjustable via knobs that still provide a good grip and decent resistance to turning. All switches and knobs test OK.

Sounds generated are comparable to 505s and 606s, as well as Roland's CR series. It is an easy synth to incorporate into even a modern workflow."

Jameszoo - Against The Clock

Published on Jul 4, 2018 FACTmagazine

"One of Amsterdam's key players makes a track in 10 minutes.

Jameszoo is a self-described "naïve computer jazz" artist and Dutch representive of Flying Lotus's Brainfeeder label, which released his debut album Fool in 2016. When he's not making music he's hosting residencies at the Netherlands' Willem Twee Studios, a space filled with vintage gear for making electro-acoustic sounds.

We travelled to Den Bosch to meet Jameszoo at the space for this week's episode of Against The Clock, where he put its unique collection of devices – including an ARP 2600 and a few pieces of test and measure equipment – through their paces with his Prophet '08 synth.

Watch above and then see what Albert Van Abbe did with the Willem Twee collection for his ATC a few months ago."

MAM MB33 Retro Bass Boss DM-2w Arturia Keystep Dawless Jam

Published on Jul 4, 2018 NomNomChomsky

"This is an acid bass jam using the TB303 clone (MAM MB33 Retro) into the analog delay pedal (Boss DM-2w) , sequenced by the Arturia Keystep.

Visual effects thrown together in After Effects. The really glitchy one is called Pixel Sorting. That's a fun one. Gotta have some crazy eye candy when doing the dawless acid jams."

04-Analogue Solutions Treadstone- Song Demonstration 4

Published on Jul 4, 2018 AutomaticGainsay

"Here is a musical example of the sound of the Analogue Solutions Treadstone. All of the synth sounds were created with the Treadstone, and are presented without effect or equalization. The drums and percussion sounds were created and sequenced on a Korg Triton LE.

The Treadstone is a shockingly powerful synthesizer for its size, and is also the smallest modern synthesizer with its level of vintage analog tone."

Daft Punk - Around The World / Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger - cover by gattobus

Published on Jul 4, 2018 gattobus

"Here's my take on this song from Daft Punk 'Alive 2007' album.
Everything is played live, no overdubs or other instruments added.
I used only Roland TR-8S (loaded with the original samples), VP-03 Vocoder and Studio Electronics SE-02.
No external FX used. Everything's been recorded straight to my audio interface.
A little overall compression and mastering with Ableton Live 10.
I had so much fun playing it!!! :D
I hope you like it too!!!
