Lo-fi Mellotron Style Sampler with a Gieskes DIY hacked Walkman ( Zachteman )


Sound Provider

"A friend lent me a Zachteman for a few days and I took the opportunity to record a lot of stuff with it. The Zechteman is a kind of DIY Mellotron made from a hacked portable cassette player created by the genius Gieskes.It has a keyboard, a vibrato and even a Cv input that controls the pitch and a Gate input that controls the vibrato (Perfect to use it with my Eurorack Synth).
For this demo, I used my Aiwa Cassette Recorder to record a single note with my Analog Synthesiter Moog Werkstatt for 5 minutes and then I used the cassette with the Zachteman to create a melody.
For the last part I added some effects with the Zoia of Empress Effects and I took the opportunity to make a quick Beat with sounds I released on Sound Provider( Analog Now & Techno Now / https://www.sound-provider.eu/ ) with Maschine Plus of Native Instruments, it allowed me to see that the sample banks of sound provider also works well with the Hiphop 😊😉

Voila!
