Pipe Dream (Elektron Digitone 1.32 // Dreadbox Nymphes + Walrus Audio Julianna + The Pill Pedal)

"Can the sparkling digital vibes of the Elektron - Digitone form a nice pair with the fat analog sound of the Dreadbox - Nymphes?
I made this track recorded in one shot, trying to get an answer! I'll be glad to have your point of view 😉

The 4 synth tracks of the Digitone were used here to play:
- T1: FM Drums
- T2: Chimes
- T3: Fast arpeggiated chimes
- T4: Lead bells (played live)

In the recent v1.32 firmware update of the Digitone, there's a nice mixer view which makes it way easier to fade in the different tracks 🤩

I also used 3 out of the 4 MIDI tracks of the Digitone to sequence the Nymphes 6-voice polyphonic analog synth. Each MIDI track played a different part (but with the same sound as the Nymphes is not multi-timbral):
- MIDI1: Bass
- MIDI2: Lead
- MIDI3: Riff (triggered by the FILL button of the Digitone)

I also make quite heavy use of the probability feature of the Digitone's sequencer in order to add some variations on the unique pattern which was used.

* Hardware used *
- Elektron - Digitone: Drums, Chimes, sequencer.
- Dreadbox - Nymphes: Bass, Lead, Riff.
- Walrus Audio - Julianna: Stereo Analog Chorus/Vibrato pedal, adding this wide stereo effect on the Nymphes 😍
- The Pill Pedal: Ducking the Nymphes, triggered by the phones' output of the Digitone (set it up in order that mainly the kick is triggering the effect)."
