It was 7 pm in Spain when I realized it is Depeche Mode 101 anniversary. Then, I quickly set something: a live streaming playing some songs from that gig. No time to rehearsal or prepare anything; just practised a few times some song and this is what we got.

Thanks everyone joining the chat. It was fun to share this with you!."

First 8 minutes with the Behringer RD-9: Raw Techno Jam

video by Honeysmack

"First 8 minutes with the RD-9. All sounds are exclusively from the RD-9. Totally raw, improvised and unrehearsed Techno jam, nothing too serious, just throwing as much as I can at it, so please wipe away your tears before you get upset.🙃

Sounds great, very playable and performable. Feels nice and the new features evolve the original 909 sound and sequencer.

Now please don't go asking how it compares to the original, unless you are doing a high-school science project that you need answers in order to impress your classmates.😁 I'll have a 1:1 comparison of sorts for the Techno elitists very soon with my TR-909. FYI: Every TR-909 sounds different because each one is processed differently on different recordings by different producers!"

And a cool synth shirt spotted on Honeysmack's Instragram: :)

Aquifex - Reface DX live looper jam (one synth, all parts)

"Another of my 'one synths/all parts' demos. MIDI assist from Theoryboard (some chord variations) and Keystep (perc arps).

All layers played by hand into a multi-looper and remixed live to a stereo recorder.

The Reface DX has amazing sound and realtime timbre control for a 4-op synth. Some patches sound like 6-op patches, as in a DX-7."

Aquifex - Roli Equator 2 MPE live jams with multi-looper

"Demos of new Equator 2 with only MPE patches - played live into a multi-looper and mixed live while playing another part to a stereo recorder - I ran out of loops. :-) The live nature give rise to mistakes and a human feel... I upgraded my Roli Equator app to v.2 during CyberWeek and was inspired to make a couple of “soundtracky” demos with only Equator 2 MPE patches. In case you didn't know, Equator 1 and 2 have non-MPE patches of you need them."

Aquifex - Modular and OP-Z jam 11-23-20


"Quick experiment with a tempo locked rhythm and a wild snare and off tempo arp. As the beat comes around they sync up, get a little wild, and sync up again. Fun to try but YMMV. :-)

Used some new modules including a Plaits clone, Gyrinx VCF (Synton Syrinx filter bank), Grids, and some classics like Morphagene and Clouds with various modulation bits. That WMD Geiger Counter is a noisy bugger, but fun."

Note that is a custom MATRIXSYNTH hat by SynthAddict. It looks good! :)
