Jamming while being sick.
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.
This was my contribution.
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.
Here will eventually appear some articles about my numerous hacking (read as enhancing/improving), soldering or DIY projects.
This is the first attempt of recording video together with the performance. I also wanted to capture the set because they vanish so easily.
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.
Live performed track. Drums played solely by Sonic Potions LXR, melodic stuff was partly pre-composed and then played live from Atari ST.
Track composed in Atari ST’s Cubase sequencer, directing Virus TI2 for melodic parts and NI Battery 4 for drums. Drums were slightly FXed with KP3.
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.
