Gentle OB-6 arps with a Zen delay

video upload by Richard DeHove

Do you find that certain combinations of gear suddenly become "more than the sum of its parts"? The OB-6 has become a huge magnet for my time these past few weeks since I've teamed it up with the Erica Synths Zen delay. This piece is a little similar to the "OB-Zen Nocturne", but instead of manual twiddling of the filter and resonance knobs they're now hooked up to the little MIDI fader box on the left. The far left slider is filter amount; the middle one is resonance. The other fader (which I didn't use here) was assigned to filter EG amount. The benefit of the fader box is the ability to tweak both parameters together while also playing with one hand.

Clearly I'm not playing each note of the arpeggiated chords, just triggering chords. That's done using the plugin "Cthulhu" by Xfer with a range of chords I assigned per note. The piece begins with G Minor 9th, then a G# maj9. After recording I added a touch of EQ and some compression since the big octave range and varying filter and resonance settings gave it some pretty wide dynamics.
