Slim Phatty, Hydrasynth, Virus C, DSI Pro 2, Volca FM, Gadget 2: "Oversea"

Published on Jun 4, 2020 Brittle stR music

"This started with a repeated phrase on the Phatty, which by duplication and subtraction turned into a solo line that sounds like someone ought to be playing it! If I did that live, I’d mess it up. Gadget is sweeping filter cutoff, filter envelope amount and filter decay time on the Moog as it plays. Ambient wash is from the Virus; bass from the Hydrasynth; strings and percussion from Gadget; and I’m tweaking the knobs/sliders on the Volca FM."

8BitM8 - Hardware Bit Crusher with Arcade Button

Published on Jun 4, 2020 midierror
Update: Re-Published on Jun 5, 2020

via tindie

"The 8BitM8 is a brand new bit-crusher pedal inspired by the tonal qualities of vintage samplers, MPCs and the love of lo-fi sounds. It comes hand made in a rugged metal enclosure packed with high quality components which include a genuine arcade button.

Hardware bit crushers are hard to come by and are often simply 'sample rate reducers' without any effect on the number of bits. The 8BitM8 is a fully digital bit crusher with settings for 4, 6 and 8-Bit - meaning the sounds of early samplers, lofi keyboards and digital effect units at your fingertips.

Tears for Fears - Mad World | Het verhaal achter het nummer

This one was spotted and sent in via Soviet Space Child. The Focus is on the influence of synths, which is pretty cool. Some light synth spotting.

Flame Mäander - Sunny Electro Blues // Outdoor Synth Jam #TTNM


"Experimental Blues on the Flame Mäander synthesizer, plus iOS Jim Audio Pure Acid drums and Audio Damage Dubstation delay and EOS reverb. MORE INFO BELOW :)


Another great day to chill with the Flame Mäander in the sun! I prepared a simple 128 step backing track with the internal sequencer, locked it and then played on top of it in Shots mode (beat repeat) with the little button keyboard. The notes were quantized live into the same blues scale as the backing track and I’ve used the keyboard transpose encoder heavily to throw in some higher pitched notes.

I chose one of the new Mäander 2.0 B wavetables, containing electric organ and piano waves, which can create dramatically morphing swells when modulated with a slow triangle LFO. There is also the Mäander’s noise oscillator playing a simple rhythmic four on the floor pattern. Tweaking its decay adds some fun variation to the track.

In postproduction on my iPad Pro, I added additional drums with Jim Audio’s PURE ACID iOS drum machine in the Cubasis 2 DAW. For effects I stuck to my trusty Audio Damage AUv3 plugin suite with Dubstation 2 delay and EOS 2 reverb.'
