"Layered Drum Machine Kicks

It’s no secret... I love layering drums! Such a great way of adding depth and character and giving a unique flavour and punch.

I have used 33 drum machines in different combinations with multiple layering techniques.

These kicks are ready for your next production and will work in many different genres.

I have also added a bonus of 8 transient samples if you want to do more layering with the samples.

Drum Machines used: TR-707, TR-505, TR-808, TR-909, LXR-02, Pulsar-23, Mrs Bass Drum, Volca Kick, Volca Drum, PO-12, PO-32, LM-2, DSI Tempest, MFB Tanzbar, DX, DMX, CR8000, ER1, Andromeda Space Rocker, DRM1, HeartBeat, Mbrane, TR-8s, MachineDrum, Rytm, Syntakt, Nord Drum, Olsen X-100, 55B, Ritmo, SP12, XD-5, MR10"

The easiest way to jam on a DB-01

video upload by Richard DeHove

"A good friend of mine bought a DB-01 a while back and when he visited recently was disappointed he forget to bring it along. 'You could have punched in some good patterns for me' he said. Which made me think that for some people programming the DB-01 is a not how they have fun. Which is a shame. And yes, if you're going step-by-step trying to make a riff by note numbers or building it up cycle by cycle that might not be premium entertainment.
So here's what I think is the easiest way to use its powers to jam along and end up with various chunks of recordable audio which can be later chopped up to make a full track.
The effects here are a Zen Delay and Strymon Mobius, but any old stuff will do. Just bring it in and out, twiddle the filter and find some notes on the arpeggiator that sound good.

0:00 A two note pattern
0:50 Mobius Formant
1:05 Zen delay
1:35 Some drive
2:10 Pitch Envelope
2:27 Arp fun
3:46 Mobius Quadrature
5:12 Calm again
5:26 Mobius Destroyer
6:00 Mobius Formant
6:50 Open the filter

Krueger String Bass

Krueger 13 Note String Bass video upload by MaasRoweCarillons

"This is a Maas-Rowe Carillons product.

Krueger 13 Note String Bass
Sorry, I apologize that the volume is low, my phone’s mic seems to have a sharp drop off with distance. As I mention in the video we do still repair these instruments. Also, when we do we also upgrade them from AC to DC. In this video I use a 24 vdc switching power supply, which I do not recommend for normal usage. A cheap switching power supply can introduce noise into an analog system.

Also, a switching power supply is designed to stay at or near the set output voltage. In this case, 24 vdc. An analog 24 vdc, regulated or un regulated will run a bit higher than the set voltage. In this way measuring a 24 vdc power supply will result in slightly higher voltages, i.e. 25 - 26 volts when measured with a digital volt meter. I would imagine that there are still lots of these out there.

There also were some models that had a full metal cover and were designed to go inside of organs and connect to the note buss. I have only seen one image recently sent me by an organ repair company wanting to know the part number of an edge connector. I would like to see better photos of that type of configuration."

Lost Analog by Barry Schrader

You might remember the announcment for Lost Analog by Barry Schrader posted back in September. Not mentioned was some of the unique history and significance of this particular release featuring the Buchla 200 in the liner notes, including possibly the first quadraphonic electronic music score for a commercial film.

The liner notes for the release follow:

I’ve chosen to call this album Lost Analog not only with reference to my previous release, Lost Atlantis, but also because all of the works are analog electronic music, and parts of them are, indeed, lost. All of this music was created from 1972 through 1983, using the Buchla 200 analog modular synthesizer, also known as “The Electronic Music Box.” The music contained in this Lost Analog album was originally created in 4 channels, sometimes referred to as quadraphonic sound. In mixing and remastering these pieces as stereo files, some of the original aural intent has unavoidably been lost, another reason for calling this release Lost Analog. As I write this, realizing that some of this music hasn’t been heard in public for almost fifty years, I’m taken back to much earlier days in my life and career, which, although remembered, are also lost, as are all of our pasts.

Death of the Red Planet Suite” (1973) is made from parts of a score for the film “Death of the Red Planet." The 20-minute film was the first to be created from images made with lasers, and it toured theatres along with “Yessongs,” a concert film of the band Yes. It is, I think, the first quadraphonic electronic music score for a commercial film. This suite of the music from the score is all that I have of the original soundtrack. Whether or not the film still exists in its original theatrical format, I have no idea. More information on this film may be found here.

“Bestiary" (1972-74) is a five-movement work drawing on mythological creatures from medieval bestiaries, treatises about real and fictitious animals. Originally, I had planned seven movements, but ended up composing only five. The first and last movements are imaginings of mythological beasts convening and dispersing (the latter in an increasingly disorderly way), while the interior three sections focus, respectively, on sea serpents, a unicorn, and basilisks, the latter being venomous winged reptiles that supposedly lived in caves or deep wells. “Bestiary” is the first work of mine to fully incorporate what has become one of my main compositional concerns: the creation of new and transformational timbres.

After composing “Lost Atlantis”, I wanted to do something very different, and so I wrote "Classical Studies" (1977). These three short pieces use abstractions of old musical forms: canon, chorale, and perpetuum mobile. The timbres are almost always changing with each successive event in these works, very quickly so in “Perpetuum Mobile."

The”Moon-Whales Suite” presents three sections of a larger work, “Moon-Whales and Other Moon Songs" (1982-83). This is a seven-movement work for soprano and electronics. The even-numbered movements are for soprano accompanied by electronics, and the odd-numbered movements are for soprano solo followed by an electronic music section without voice. The three movements presented here, are the 2nd, 4th, and 6th sections of the work, without the soprano introductions. The work is based on poems by Ted Hughes, the British Poet Laureate from 1984 to 1998, taken from his collection “Moon-Whales and Other Moon Poems." The three poems referenced are also the titles of the pieces in this suite: “The Moon-Oak,” “The Moon-Bull,” and "Moon-Wings". Reading the poems will help to uncover the inspirations and ideas behind these works, but I think they also stand on their own as musical compositions. While the master tapes for the electronics of these pieces still exist, they are unplayable due to tape deterioration, yet another reason for this album to be called “Lost Analog."

"A live jam recorded in the morning right after having breakfast. With this jam i finally could integrate the choir patches of the Rm1x in useful way. I used the LFO to add movement on the pitch and reduced the attack as well. This adds more life to it. It works quite nice together with the flute patch of the PSR 4600 you can hear all the time in background and playing the main voice later. For the SY35 I simply used the preset patch 'Water'. Grab a coffee and enjoy!"

Kling Klong – Preset Walkthrough (Soundset for Hive 2)

video upload by u-he

"Kling Klong for Hive 2 is a collection of 170+ unorthodox synth percussion loops and hits, with countless variants via Hive's XY pads.

Most 'Mono Loops' are arpeggiated sequences, letting you create variations by simply holding down different notes across the keyboard.

The 'Poly Loops' make good use of Hive's polyphonic shape sequencer instead of the arpeggiator/sequencer: By stacking notes the user can turn slow loops into complex rhythms or dramatic repeating 'flams’ – an unusual technique well worth exploring!

Arturia Prophet - V - Sound Bank '79

video upload by Polydata

"Drawing from the earliest days of polyphonic synthesizers, Sound Bank ‘79 for the Arturia Prophet-V finds its inspiration in synthesizer music found in documentaries and library music from the late 70’s and early 80’s.

A bank comprising 40 patches for instant inspiration. The goal was to squeeze as much vintage analog juice out of this plug-in as possible, primarily working within the constraints of the original Sequential Circuits Prophet-5. I own a real Prophet-5 rev 3.2 and still love the analog mojo of this plug-in.

Note: This is for the Arturia 'Prophet V' (V3) plug-in and not more recent 'Prophet-5 V' plug-in which has a different synth engine. Also: please note that most of these patches are saved with "Reset" as the Play Mode at the bottom of the plug-in window, but you may want to change it to 'Circ' based on your needs.

Sound Bank '79 is a series of vintage tones for different synths and plug-ins, so look out for future releases. Recorded completely dry with no external effects or processing.


(One of the patches in the bank - "Pinnacle" - is missing from this video demo, so this is 39 of the 40 sounds)"
