Jupiter 8, LinnDrum, Pro-One '80s sequencing


"After the '70s "POD", I'm making an '80s pod in the studio. Next, the '90s pod. The LinnDrum triggers the Pro-One's sequencer. The JP-8 plays chords. (a Garfield synchronizer syncs the Linn-Drum to the Pro-One)"

Dark ambient music: Fear Has Brought You Here

Richard DeHove

"Gloomy, anguished track featuring the 01/IV [The Division Department] doing drums and the repeating bass squelch, me bashing metal together (then later pitched down), sampled unhappy crowd noises, and the Sub37 doing all the rest. Wasn't sure about the genre. 'Dark Ambient' was what I settled on although perhaps it has too much thump and clunk for anything claiming to be ambient? Maybe Electro-Industrial, Electronica, Dark Wave or even synth wave? All genre advice appreciated.

The track was written at DubDub studios and mastered by Scott Craggs at Old Colony Mastering.

If the metal clunk sounds appeal then you can download 16 free samples, most of which were used in this track:
A full pack of 60 samples is available at the same link for $4.

If you like the track it's available at all the usual music providers, Spotify, Apple, Amazon and Deezer being some of many:

√Čtude No.6 - Arbhar/BIA/Mimeophon/Magneto/Freak/Desmodus Versio/Muxlicer/Rampage

Omri Cohen

"If you like what I do and want to support my work, consider joining me on Patreon - Here are some patch notes:
- I have Arbhar set to the delay mode, and I'm modulating the delay times/amount with S&H from the 1U Noise Tools module.
- I'm triggering a grain with the Keystep Pro, which also triggers at the same time the S&H so with each grain, the delay is different.
- This is then going to the Desmodus Versio, and I'm using the S&H to modulate its size.
- I'm sequencing the Basimilus, the kick drum, also with the Keystep Pro, and I'm splitting the signal once to the Mimeophon, and once to the Disting in the mixer algo.
- I'm triggering the Muxlicer with the same trigger as the Basimilus, and it's sequencing the wet amount of the Mimeophon.
- The snare is coming from Freak, which is loaded with the Braids firmware, and it's also being sequenced by the Keystep Pro.
- I'm splitting it as well once to the Disting, and also once to Magneto for some short delays.
- The mix from the Disting is going to both inputs of Rampage for some extra grit."

Andreas Tilliander - First session with the Syntrx (2020)


"This is the Erica Synth Syntrx. I recorded a session to get to know it a bit better. I think it's about four stems or dubs playing.

I've got the EMS Synthi A but I'm not interested in an A/B test or a gear demo really. Just having fun making music. :)"
