Massive jam w/ Keystep Pro, Subharmonicon, ARP Odyssey, DFAM, SH-01a, MI Clouds, and lots of effects


Jay Hosking

"A live, semi-improvised performance, all on hardware, and inspired by the anticipation of the new (school) year. I wanted to do one last huge setup, with a lot of different gear, before the semester starts and I get busy. I was super happy with where this one went.

At the heart of it is the Arturia Keystep Pro, which is sequencing four melodic lines (bass on ARP Odyssey, pads on SH-01a, melodic arp on Subharmonicon, and granular melody on Clouds), while also providing clock for the non-MIDI DFAMs. Despite the huge assortment of gear on the table, this one just worked for me because the instruments each have a really beautiful baseline sound.

Arturia Keystep Pro — Sequencing and clock
Korg ARP Odyssey into Empress Echosystem — Bass
Roland SH-01a into Strymon Ola into Meris Ottobit Jr. — Pad
Moog Subharmonicon into Meris Polymoon — Arp melody thing
Mutable Instruments Clouds into Strymon Magneto — Granular melody
Moog DFAM into Empress Multidrive into Union Tube & Transistor Lab — Kick and snare
Moog DFAM into Erica Synths & Ninja Tune Zen Delay — Hi hats and noise weirdness

Written and recorded in a 48-hour period and uploaded as is, with EQ, compression, and limiting on the master.
