Fragile 🍃 (Roland TR-6S Rhythm Performer // S-1 Tweak Synth // J-6 Chord Synth)

video upload by 2-Minute Warning

"Here's a 2x 2-Minute jam featuring 3 little boxes from Roland: the TR-6S (Drums), the S-1 (Bass and Arp) and the J-6 (Pads) 🐺

I've recorded a few patterns of each of the 3 instruments which are being chained up live in this jam.

On the DRUMS side played by the TR6S, there is quite a lot going on: I mainly used the Analog Circuit Behavior and FM Engines for the drum sounds. I used a few of the real time performance tools available: STEP LOOP, FILL IN, MASTER FX (Fuzz). I also took advantage of the polymectri capabilities of the sequencer, where the KICK's sequence length is different from the rest of the pattern (on the first part, it's a 6-step sequence playing, and on the last part, a 5-step sequence 😉).

For the BASS & ARP parts, I used the S1 (which fortunately is polyphonic 😃). I also played with its integrated 'Riser' effect for the transitions.

I recorded 3 patterns on the J-6, among which the last one is being syncopated thanks its 'phrase type' feature (a bit like an arpeggiator effect). The J-6 is being synced to the S-1 by their analog clocks (through the translucent cable, where you can see a little red LED lightening up with each clock pulse coming into the J-6)."
