Earth Fruit

video upload by nbor

"Syncing up the Buchla Music Easel with the @WeAreElektron Model Cycles, precarious techno ensues. Recorded in mono, so I dropped it into @bitwig Studio to add some stereo effects with simple multi-band separations."

Mr Morning

video upload by nbor

"Something to wake up to. Testing out the overhead with a pre-production Buchla Music Easel and lovely Meris LVX delay pedal. Getting ready to shoot some tutorials, but playtime gets in the way!"

Side by Side

video upload by nbor

"Finding the music in a new granular synth, Granular III in Ableton Live 12. I created several presets for this synth and chose two that played well together to create this ambient piece."

Macro Temporal (official video)

video upload by nbor

"Macro Temporal from '3', available on Bandcamp.
A single take through a single looper...but I augmented the performance by taking large chunks of the 'unlooped' audio from the synthesizer and and re-arranging it in time against the looped audio."

Discrete Energies

video upload by nbor

"An audio-reactive video made in @cycling74com Jitter. Soundtrack composed in @bitwig studio using @madrona-labs Aalto, with a touch of @ArturiaOfficial Stage-73 V2."

Fan of Color

video upload by nbor

"A very low key meditation on color and sinusoids. A complex surface is rendered from sine waves, accompanied by a downtempo track. Graphics generated in @cycling74com Jitter. Audio uses @AudioDamageInc Continua and @madrona-labs Aalto."

The Chase

video upload by nbor

"I got a cool pattern going on the Microbrute and had to get it out of my system. A cheap re-cut from the amazing 'Poliziotto Sprint' (aka Highway Racer) adds some context and fun."

Live Quadraphonic Mixing in Bitwig Studio

video upload by nbor

"Download the Grid device here!

Recently, I've been lucky to perform live sets in Quadraphonic audio. I developed some tools in Bitwig Studio to create animated soundscapes for four speakers. Using modulators and the FX Grid, I can create a huge variety of spatial audio patterns. However, Bitwig isn't really designed for this, so there's a few things you need to do to work around its stereo "bias." Despite the few hacks, it works really well, and sounds amazing. This video gives an overview of how to make everything work."

Thanks Radio

video upload by nbor

"Precipitous placement of a glass of pinot notwithstanding, I've been working with loopers and the @buchlausa Easel command. After struggling with some less desirable results, I listened to the magic of KFJC radio and it gave me some new direction. Drum sounds created on the Buchla, sampled into the @bitwig drum machine, sequenced with the Hawtin script for the Fire. I'm controlling four instances of @AudioDamageInc Enso with a Livid Minim (off screen)."

"Exploring a chaotic system with @buchlausa 200 reissue modules. Assistance from a @MerisUs LVX looper delay pedal and @1010music blackbox. Three angels shot live with Logitech Mevo cameras."

"A plethora of @buchlausa sounds fed into a @MerisUs LVX looper delay pedal, all floating on a VHS world of dreams and nightmares"

Thin Ice

video upload by nbor

"Affected by the stormy end of year, I made this track late on a cold night. 'Thin Ice' is a simple composition with complex sounds. The sounds of breaking ice are played with MPE in @AudioDamageInc Quanta 2 granular synth. @ArturiaOfficial SEM V2 synth provides a dark background, played on the LEM218. A simple generative melody from Bitwig haunts the @buchlausa Easel Command. All treated with a liberal dose of effects. Really, though, you should hear this in quad!"

"In celebration of the @buchlausa Program Manager card, I take a preset and play with it in 'both' mode. Extra effects applied in @bitwig studio, of course!"

Not Exactly Crochet: Needlepoint + Buchla Easel Synthesizer. Generative Sounds.

video upload by nbor

"I have been playing with the Unfiltered Audio Needlepoint plugin on a free trial, which emulates the effects of distressed vinyl LPs. You can use this as an audio source, or use to process incoming audio to make it sound like it's on a messed up record.
In this clip, I'm using one instance of Needlepoint to generate pops and clicks, which I use as an envelop for the incoming audio from a Buchla Music Easel. The other instance is processing the incoming audio from the Easel. Some semi-random modulations on the loop for the envelope follower ("Broken" parameter) and the Spindown for the other give this a generative, never-ending feeling.
I fucking love this.

What Happens When You Use A Buchla Easel Preset?

video upload by nbor

"I had the privilege to use an advance copy of the Buchla Program Manager. It's a pretty different experience to dial up a preset and start jamming with the Buchla Easel Command. It took me to a different place than I usually go with the Easel! Combined the Richie Hawtin + Akai Fire Bitwig scripts, the incredible Arturia CS80 plugin, and some modular...well, I didn't get as much work done as I had hoped."
