9 Live Jams
Recorded around February/March.
During this period I have not Re-patched my Eurorack and mainly used the same patterns on my Malekko Voltage Block and Varigate 8+.
I have not had any style in mind wen playing, just went with the flow. Styles range from Techno & acid to Psychedelic and Ambient.
Would love to know, if any are to your liking?

The hart of the patch
The synth lead/bass part of the patch is using a single oscillator (Thomas Henry 555) that is processed by 3 filters and one triple wave folder. It then ends up in two VCAs + envelopes (Hexinverter Galilean Moons) . So the 555 ends with in to voices. the mail voice gets wave folding + 2 filters, last in the chain is the VCF 303 by DinSync, it is the TB-303 filter in eurorack form and I was surprised how it can produce deep rounded bass, given a complex waveform. The second voice has a single filter the Serge 1973 vcf (PCB and panel by my good fiend mCop) and I just love the band-pass on it.
The Voltage block has each of its steps tuned with pitch and varies other filter and wave folding parameters. The Varigate 8+ is used for sequencing the steps of the Voltage block and trigger the drums.

All recorded live using Zoom H4n & iPhone.
Some recorded live on Instagram and Facebook and a few audio only.
BPM: I use the small knob on the Varigate 8+ to set the tempo, with no bpm display, so I just went with what I felt like. Only while editing the video I worked out the BPMs, so may have made mistakes.
Track 1: has some extra low end percussions added using Ableton. You can hear the two are not perfectly synced but it created a funky groove so I went with it. Let me know if you think it worked?
Track 3: Juno 60 running an un-synced arpeggiator.
Special effects: Hyperspective iPhone app
Video editing: iMovie :(
