DSI Pro 2 Sequencer Fun

video upload by Senti mental

"Some short sequences made on the Pro-2
No additional effects, delays are from the synth, which are the only effects on board - would have been nice to also have reverb or chorus…
Best listened to with decent headphones or adequate audio system.

Filmed on Panasonic Lumix."

"Using the Elektron Octatrack and Analog Four to flip some oldschool disco vibes with spacey analog synth sounds and vintage drum machine samples. The Octatrack carries the main sample loop as well as drum/percussion one-hit samples. The Analog Four synth is on melodic duties with its four tracks playing different sounds.

"I believe I am up to 54 synths purchased and 34 sold in the last year. I keep saying I'm done but......

- All sound demo segments are played with absolutely no plans for the patches I am going to use or what I am going to play. I'm just winging it. Obviously.

- All audio is recorded dry, straight from the synths. Any effects you hear are internal effects built into that synth.

- All synths and everything else were purchased at regular prices. I have never been given a demo model or even loaned something by any company. I bought all this stuff.

- No, I'm not rich. The buying spree started with selling some synths I already had. Then when I wanted more stuff, I sold off more collectibles I already owned. The synths I decided not to keep then funded more synth purchases. I run a record label by myself and also work a full-time normal job. I worked my ass off for all this stuff.

- Yes, I know I have the Imovie skills of the average 8-year-old. I've never even owned a smart phone.

- This project has been really fun and taught me that the most sought after "classics" are not automatically for everyone. It also taught me that youtube synth demos and comparisons are not the final word. Nothing beats sitting down with an instrument and playing it.

Check out for releases by The Residents, Chrome, Norman Westberg (Swans), etc plus my own Zebras, Logan 5, and VP solo ambient music projects.

Dark Ambient Drones With Norns Dronecaster

video upload by Perplex On

"Sometimes some dark ambient drones is all what you need and feel. Here #dronecaster script for #norns is casting drones while the visuals should loosely visualize the idea of radio waves emitting and interfering. Norns‘ output is going into the ipad with a pinch of additional effects like Blackhole and Rymdigare. Visuals #madewithnotch"
