Aquifex Orba Bluetooth Eurorack modular live demo


"Simple melodic modular demo with an Orba live component.

Orba BT to iPhone -- Midiflow app -- mio MIDI USB interface out via
cam. adapter -- MIDI DIN out to Mutant Brain module input -- MB CV/gate out to Plaits module, etc.

One or 2 visible misfires on the Orba keys, but it worked pretty well - some modular glitches too… hey it’s live. :-)"

what if I wrote a teletype script to ping all my filters?


"This piece came directly from the question "what if I wrote a teletype script to ping all my filters?". As it turned out the pulse from the teletype itself didn't seem beefy enough so I made pulses with Maths and the Quadra for the actual pinging. Then last night I was listening to the wonderful Ekin Fil and one of her pieces kind of inspired the bassline. And then this is one of the improvisations I did around that eurorack setup."

BURG Session Template 03


"If you like my music you can find it here and also please consider supporting me at patreon for as little as 1 USD


Hey there everyone!

Continuing my plans for 2020 and 2021 and the writing my new album, with this i will be posting template jam sessions to YouTube from which I will base and recreate the final tracks. These jam sessions are in no way finalised tracks, but you will be able to hear the main ideas before i start fine tuning the details.

If you join my patreon there will be behind the scenes materials, bonus tracks, stems, sound packs from these sessions and also a possibility to remix the future shortlist single for my release. You will be able to follow the creation of the entire album from idea to final product.

Track info:

95 bpm slow and dreamy, this one took a while to put together.. most probably due to struggling with similar melodies and vibes from the other two previous sessions. Big thanks to my patrons for pointing that out so i know what to fix. I think that this will have some significant changes for the final version of the track.. and when multitracking it I will most probably change the intro section a bit plus also ensure it builds up in a more cohesive way.

AKAI force, as usual is handling the main drums, sequencing the sub37, monologue, ASM hydrasynth and the volca bass. TR 707 adds some simpler hihats, digitakt adds some extra percussion. Digitone, Peak, Analog Four are not in use.

The ms-20 starts the track off, paired with a long wobbly delay in the el Capistan. At the 3.30 mark i play the dreadbox erebus from the force pads.. a bit tricky but it worked ok. I think the melody will change a bit too, esp phrasing.

Modular does some nice percussion with the BIA, sort of a bass style sound + a pretty weird sequence with the Braids. :)


Gear Used on Session Template 03:

- Akai Force
- Elektron Digitakt
- Erebus Dreadbox
- Modular, Braids + BIA
- ASM Hydrasynth
- Sub 37
- KORG monologue, ms-20

Exploded Views, And Other Oddities.


"Just a video on this week on the progression of this ridiculous idea of a numpty like me opening a museum like "The Museum Of Everything Else".

Patreon Support Helps This Ridiculous Venture, and in return plenty of extra thingies :-

My grandparents used to be trustees at the "Withernsea Lighthouse Museum" and seeing the installations there growing up, going with my grandad to do maintenance in the building with all of the displays off and very dark, yeah safe to say it rubbed off on me, and 1 thing they did well there was exploded views of fishing items, coastguard equipment and boats."
