Roland SP-404 MK2 / 'beat-less' ambient drone

video upload by Coolout Beats

This one is in vai Coolout Beats who had the following to say on it:

"Here's a quick demo turning a simple tone into a more complex ambient drone. Although the SP-404 is mainly known for sample-based music, the new internal Sound Generator function opens up a new world of possibilities. Created live with no samples, using a Launchcontrol mapped to the SP-404 FX busses.

Bus 1: Chromatic Pitch Shift (to create a 3-note chord)
Bus 2: Cloud Delay (granular pitch shift. stereo widen and delay)
Bus 3: 303 Vinyl Sim (wow/flutter and saturation)
Bus 4: Super Filter (low-pass filter)"

And the YouTube description:

"Just a quick demo of some out-of-the-box 404 techniques I've been working on, using the internal Sound Generator for ambient experiments.

The chain is simple:
Sound Generator - Chromatic PS - Cloud Delay - 303 Vinyl Sim - Super Filter

*apologies for the crackles and hum. I left the external input engaged with a synth and turntables sitting there. You can actually hear my arm hitting things. It sounded kinda cool, so I left it in."
