An Ocean in Thyme // No Input Ambient Music // Mooer Ocean Machine + Bastl Thyme #TTNM

Published on Mar 18, 2020 THE TUESDAY NIGHT MACHINES

"It's been a while since I last made some no input music with the Mooer Ocean Machine and Bastl Thyme ...


The Ocean Machine is a straightforward looper, dual delay and reverb guitar effect pedal. Its left channel output is connected the Bastl Instruments Thyme robot-controlled digital tape delay. The Thyme's right channel output goes back into the Ocean Machine's right channel input. The Thyme's left channel output goes into the audio recorder.

This creates a feedback loop between the two devices, resulting in audible self-oscillation, which can be looped and shaped via the effects, similar to a normal synthesizer waveform. Only that we don't need a synth at all.

The video was recorded in one take, without any other sound sources or effects, apart from the Ocean Machine and Thyme.

It's fun! try it at home!

Here's a tutorial for the Ocean Machine alone: [posted below]

"At Thomann's Synth Reactor 2019 I finally got the chance to play with an Ocean Machine, after having it on my wish list for a long time (video here: After that, Mooer Audio were kind enough to send me a pedal home to dig deeper into it. I don't have a guitar though, so I needed to come up with another way to use this thing and I think I actually found one that is way more fun :D

At your own risk, plug one Ocean Machine audio output into your speaker/mixer/recorder. Plug the other audio output into one of the Ocean Machine's audio inputs. Plug in power and hold on to your hat!

... well, start with all three mixer knobs at zero, obviously. Then slowly add feedback by adding delays and reverb. Short delay times add high pitched sounds, while long delay times add lower pitched sounds. Play with different delay and reverb types and don't forget to let the looper's continuous audio overdub running. Also, use the reverse and half-speed playback features!"
