"A quick jam for number 13, after a long day at work. This one uses the Figure app for iPad/iPhone from Reason Studios. Very good for making a quick beat."

Mark Mosher #Jamuary 2020 Day 13

Published on Jan 13, 2020 Mark Mosher

"For my #jamuary2020 Day 13 I'm using only my trusty @nordkeyboards Nord Lead 4 with 3 custom presets from "init" arranged into a "performance" with a split.

For those not familiar with the Nord Lead 4, it has 4 complete synthesizers each with their own FX each. Presets called "programs" can be placed into one of four "slots". Slots can be combined into "performances" where you can perform with all four slots in concert.

For EACH synth instance you create both impulse and continuous morphs which allow you to save states for pretty much any parameter in for the preset in a slot without changing presets 😮.

You can save and trigger 7 impulse morphs per slot with impulse morph buttons on the left next to the wooden pitch stick. Morph buttons are momentary switches but you can latch them as I do 26 second mark. Continuous morphs are mapped to the groovy pumice mod wheel (or map this to an expression pedal).

I used this custom set of presets and "performance" when I performed as a special guest for the Boulder Laptop Orchestra (BLOrK) at the @cu_atlas Atlas Black Box at @cuboulder back in 2017. For this performance I used only the Nord Lead 4 with 14 programs each with a large number of morph states. Video here

In a somewhat related note I'm a @uccs_alumni so it was real treat to perform within the CU system 😀.

I kind of cheated ... self playing ZOIA patches (Empress Effects) // #JAMUARY2020 DAY 13

Published on Jan 13, 2020 DivKidVideo

"** Anyone called Floyd that's pink and feels like running? ** With the brilliant news that there's a new Eurorack version of the Empress Effects ZOIA the "ZOIA EuroBuro" as announced by Empress Effects today (link below) I thought I'd crack out the ZOIA pedal and well ... CHEAT! I say cheat as I didn't really do much musical creating today, I just flicked through some ZOIA presets and let some self running patches play away beautifully. There's a lot of rich and lush sound from ZOIA so I figured this can be more of a little ode to ZOIA and sort of a promo for it's self contained capabilities (not sponsored). I've had great fun with my guitar into it and the modular so more exploration to come."

#Jamuary2020 // Downtempo 2 - Digitone, Minilogue, Tensor, Particle V2, RV-500

Published on Jan 13, 2020 Soular Order

"My third jam for #Jamuary2020. Another downtempo one, this time featuring the Digitone, Minilogue, Tensor, Particle V2 and the trusty RV-500.

The Digitone is sequencing arpeggiated chords and a plucked bassline, plus is used for a live pad. The Minilogue is used for the live lead. I used the Tensor to build a looping pad made from some of the notes from the Minilogue, which is then run through Particle V2 for graininess and then into the RV-500 for some reverb."

"It's been a long old week hasn't it? Well Sunday is Droneday so if you're not keen on notes that last the whole jam, low frequencies and reverb (LOTS OF REVERB) probably step away now. Otherwise lie back turn off the lights and drone on friends."

#Jamuary2020 // Ambient - Peak, Digitone, Particle v2, RV-500

Published on Jan 10, 2020 Soular Order

"Second track for #Jamuary2020. This time all ambient.
The Novation Peak is used to create the live chords/drone (triggered by an Arturia Keystep). The Elektron Digitone is sequencing the pinging lead sound which is run through the Red Panda Particle v2 and then into the Boss RV-500.
Audio recorded from an old Mackie ProFX12 mixer onto a Zoom H4N. Video recorded on an iPhone 11 Pro."

#jamuary2020 Day 10 - Elektron Digitakt

Published on Jan 10, 2020 Oscillator Sink

See the Synthuary label for more. Synthuary because these are the Jamuary synth videos. More below.

"Oh wow this one was fun to make.

It has been a good few months since I last sat down with the Digitakt and, like its FM cousin, it remains just so inspiring and fun. This one was a real head-bobber while I was recording.

The project I was working in was the same one as my Digitakt set from last year, so the samples used are the same, but the result was quite different from anything in that set.

Anyway, I had a big dumb smile on my face the whole time I was working on this one, so I hope that comes across in the finished product."

#jamuary2020 Day 9 - Arturia MiniBrute 2S, Korg Monologue and Volca Kick

Published on Jan 9, 2020 Oscillator Sink

See the Synthuary label for more. Synthuary because these are the Jamuary synth videos. More below.

"There was another jam all ready to record before this one came about, but at the last moment I pulled a creative hissy-fit, tore the patch down and went in a very different direction.

The Minibrute is heading through the trusty Zoom MS-CDR70 providing two lots of delay (to add rhythmic interest) and a reverb (because reverb). The Monologue is heading through the Digitech Polara reverb (because reverb) and the Volca Kick is dry as a bone (because I ran out of pedals)."

#Jamuary2020 002: Eternal Spring -- [Novation Circuit & Roland SC-55 MK I]

"My second entry to #Jamuary2020, titled 'Eternal Spring'. Happy sounds to fight back the gray and dark grimness occupying the skies here.

Novation Circuit is on the sequencing and drum duty while Roland SC-55 MKI occupies both of the synth channels.

Additional effects by Valhalla Shimmer & Valhalla Delay."

Deep Space Chordal Loneliness // #JAMUARY2020 Day 7

Published on Jan 7, 2020 DivKidVideo

See the Synthuary label for more. Synthuary because these are the Jamuary synth videos. More below.

"For day 7 of Jamuary I delved into some deep space ambient and chordal loneliness. Channelling feelings on loneliness in ourselves or within the random chord shifting ... romantic, emotional discussions aside I really enjoyed creating and then sitting within it's sound world for some time letting it play."

#Jamuary2020 Day 6: Shine on crazy Diamond (free interpretation with MicroFreak)

Published on Jan 5, 2020 VolcaNiced

See the Synthuary label for more. Synthuary because these are the Jamuary synth videos. More below.

"I love this Song.

I remember myself walking thru a park in my hometown Frankfurt years ago and found some Vinyl Records in a bush. One of this vinyls was "Animals" in Pink and "Wish you where here". I was 19 and had no clue what the hack Pink Floyd is. So I put the record on the player and then I was .... infected. Man, that moment first time hearing their music wihtout knowing who they are was unbelievable.

So in tribut to that great moment I am playing some leads from this great Song "Shine on crazy Diamond". Thanks @Waveformer for your influence on this with his video here:

Unfortunately I didnt own the Monologue so I had to build this Lead patch with the Microfreak. This took me about 2 hrs to get this. And it is still not perfect.

The backround sound comes from the Ipad and the App #DigitalD1 from @AudioKit. One of the best apps I own on the Ipad by the way. I build this sound with the PCM Moduls "Epic Pad" and "Glory Organ" and a little bit of tuning.

Enjoy the short trip into the 70th and dont be to sensitive with the mistakes I did. It's #Jamuary2020. Let's do music."

Basslines & Pedal Tones, Punching Tripods & Big Stereo Mixes in 6HP // #JAMUARY2020 Day 5

Published on Jan 5, 2020 DivKidVideo

See the Synthuary label for more. Synthuary because these are the Jamuary synth videos. More below.

"Here's some Eurorack beats and bass that came from wanting to build up a big sounding stereo mix from a small Eurorack mixer, which was the ST. Mix by Befaco. The piece built around that but quickly went into working basslines with moving pitches against a static pedal tone that plays an octave higher. Hints of chord tones develop as the bass moves and the pedal tone stays static. The beats shift with random probability and I'm just playing around with this live.

Full patch note exclusive on for this and all the Jamuary uploads."

Surfing on the grains on Glasgow // #JAMUARY2020 Day 4

Published on Jan 4, 2020 DivKidVideo

See the Synthuary label for more. Synthuary because these are the Jamuary synth videos. More below.

"For Day 4 of #JAMUARY2020 I wanted to create a more realised musical piece. If you get the "Surfing on the grains of Glasgow" leave a comment ... I thought that was a fun (or totally lame - let me know) title.

This piece is based on the audio left in the buffer of arbhar from this video - [posted here] - with lots of modulation from ochd that keeps the audio grains shifting through the buffer, in drifting intensities, with vary lengths and grain shapes we get a beautiful repurposing of 3 basic guitar chords with a few plucked strings in-between. There's 3 FX chains running from this that's all brought together as a stereo mix in the Eurorack system before recording."
