Elektron Digitakt + CXM1978 + GRP A2 // Ambient lofi beat

video upload by Dexba

"As an old meme once said: 'I don't always pull out the Digitakt. But when I do, I always end up amazed by how simple and yet versatile it is.'

Having 2 LFO's per track, modulating modulation, quickest sampling EVER (even for a lazy ass player like me), MIDI tracks to be able to quickly play external instruments!

This all started with the loop I put in track 8, a little arpeggio on the Matriarch, that I listened to for many many hours without knowing what to do with it. Then I decided to stop being lazy, so I pulled out the Digitakt and I started flipping the sample, recorded one drone note with the GRP, recorded water, recorded birds, and even some vinyl scratching because... you know, that's the way these things go down.

In the past few days, I've had trouble sleeping, and I have to admit I resorted to my own video quite a bit, mixed with some other sounds of nature.

Everything sounded beautiful already without reverb, but then I remembered I OWN A F***ING Chase Bliss CXM1978! I attached that, I turned the CREAMY factor on the GRP to 11, and... here we are: MY FIRST AMBIENT JAM EVER!"
