Novation // Synth Snackables: Legowelt - Peak: as a drum machine

Published on Apr 2, 2020 NovationTV

"Our Synth Snackables series invites you into the studios of talented and knowledgeable artists, and shows you staple tips, elaborate techniques and imaginative approaches for synth patch design.

For our first Synth Snackable session, we spent a day with Dutch artist Legowelt whose vast musical style spans many different worlds – some real, some imagined – and is designed in a unique and captivating way that keeps his listeners enthralled. His wealth of production knowledge and experience have been turned into five quick tips to help you push the boundaries of Peak.

In this video, starting by maxing out filtering resonance, negating depth and assigning his SL MkIII keyboard as the destination, Legowelt shows how you can quickly build a staple drum kit with Peak. With the lower octaves acting as his bass, Legowelt creates snares and high hats with the higher octaves using the noise level.

“So now we have this drum kit but there’re a lot of fun things we can do.” Using the arpeggiator to start the rhythm, Legowelt uses the Peak like a drum-machine. By adding distortion, reverb and changing the filter envelope he easily creates a “unique drum sound.” Bringing groove to the loop with delay, adding a “hypnotic techno” melody by detuning oscillators and showing off filter overdrive - Legowelt creates an advanced drum loop that morphs organically, demonstrating how this tip can become fundamental to any live setup.
