Techno sketch // 0-Coast

Stefano Mattia

"0-Coast showing some seriously biting character in this short techno jam.

Not the kind of music I usually make, but it was Friday night and I somehow came up with this monster patch and played along.

The slope with both Rise and Fall set to 12 0'clock, and with Vari-Response set to linear, generates a very sweet sounding triangle-like wave, which is the one you hear in the beginning. Blending overtones from the main oscillator, and playing with the Multiply and Overtone knobs results in a whole range of abrasive tones, which I reckon might come in handy in some situations. The Contour EOC feeds the clock, while a mix of random signal, slope and "MIDI B" triangle LFO modulates overtones and gate, resulting in variable note lengths. Finally, the square "MIDI B" square LFO hits the Linear FM once in a while, generating interesting periodic glitches.
I added drums and reverb (a Bricasti M7 IR in Logic's Space Designer) and a bass line in Logic.
