Arturia Microfreak / Korg Volca Modular and Drum - Minijam 2019-11-24

Published on Nov 24, 2019 Oscillator Sink

"Recently I've been enjoying exploring the darker side of some of my synths and in this jam, the Microfreak along with the Volca Modular and Volca Drum are getting dark together.

The Volca Modular is providing a kind of groaning, grinding, industrial drone which is being enhanced by the Zoom MS-CDR70 and its excellent "Mangled Space" reverb algorithm (seriously, it's worth the price just for that). I'll post a photo of the patch on my Facebook page. The Volca Drum is providing various melodic and percussive elements - including a massive bass pulse; the Volca Drum is providing its own Delay via the Wave Guide with the "Tune" control set super low.

The Microfreak is set up as a king hybrid pad/pluck Karplus Strong kinda thing. The patch has an element of "controlled chaos" to it, and applying more pressure to the keys makes the patch get more frantic - almost like you're influencing another player rather than the instrument directly. It's an idea I've really been digging recently and it might form the basis for a patch pack...maybe...we'll see."
