In February 2015 Elektron made a ScienceLab contest for existing Elektron boxes users. The task was to make a track purely out of one sample saying “We are not talking about simple looping device”. Contestants could use only Elektron devices with sampling feature (Machindrum, Analog Rhytm, Octatrack), max. track lenght was limited to 3 minutes, no external processing was allowed. No internal re-sampling either. Just re-synthesis.
I just packed them for E-MU samplers to .e4b format. They are not immediately usable as presets! Consider them as a storage for hundreds of single cycle waves which can be used as sound design building blocks. Just browse through the samples, load your favorite ones and create your own unique voices. AKWF_E4B.zip
Produced this song in fall 2014. Drum track was recorded in one take from Sonic Potions LXR, processed live through KP3+. Then various phrases and layers were recorded from Kawai K5000W additive synth into Ableton Live and recomposed.
Song dedicated to my lovely daughter to her 3rd birthday. Drum track played live from LXR. Melody patterns pre-composed in Atari ST, then transferred to and played live from Yamaha RS7000 which triggered Novation Supernova II synth.
This track was composed specifically for one Coming Soon movie’s scene. Drum samples come from my good old buddy drummer Tomáš Paleta, rest is just sound painting. Female mumbling and screams are performed by some unknown actress.
