Pilot 🧭 (TR-6S with new "808 Chromatic Bass", sequencing MAM ADX1 + Timeline // Sequential Take 5)

video upload by 2-Minute Warning

"In this jam, I'm exploring the Roland TR-6S' capability to sequence external instruments, in this case the MAM (Music And More) ADX-1, 5-voice analog drum module 🥁!

I used 4 tracks (white illuminated faders, labeled LT, HC, CH and OH) of the TR-6S to sequence 4 parts of the ADX-1 (named Synth, Snare, Hihat and Metal). I even used the "alternate instrument" sequencing feature of the TR-6S to sequence for example the closed/opened Hihat of the ADX-1 (i.e. sending 2 different notes to only one part of the ADX-1) 😃

At first I only wanted to use the TR-6S as a sequencer (not its internal sounds), however I ended up using on Track 1 its "CR-78" kick, on Track 2 its new "808 Chromatic Bass", and also layering the parts played by the ADX-1 with sounds from the TR-6S (4 last tracks). Fun fact: I didn't use any samples here 😉 All the sounds coming from the TR-6S are from the modeling ACB (Analog Circuit Behavior) engine!

To be able to change the bass pitches coming from the TR-6S, I used different "variations" of the pattern, with different tunings of the "808 Chromatic Bass".

It was not very easy to jam with the Sequential Take 5 synth and change the pattern's variations at the same time, but nonetheless still fun and challenging 😅
