Re: Analog FM Synthesis?

i've taken DX7 algorithms and recreated them on a Serge and SMS rig. It sounded incredible but required SO many multiples, VCA's, and envelopes it was pretty ridiculous (in a really cool way). without a rig that big (9 panels of serge and a massive sms) i don't think i would be able to do it.

Re: My First EP Completed! Lottsa Analogue Techno

the wonderful thing about bandcamp is that the different download formats are derived from a wav or aiff file which is really nice and the quality translates nicely across most formats (except for you dreaded low quality, quick download mp3). i think out of most of the upload services, the online st...

My First EP Completed! Lottsa Analogue Techno

Well I posted right before the forum decided it needed a second or two to calm down. But here it is, my first EP is complete. For all you analogue techno lovers, especially into the smoother more old school sound, I think this would be a nice play. Have a listen and let me know what you guys think. ...

Akai S900 Raw Sounds and 909 samples demo

I thought I'd share this here. I am going to be selling my S900 (have a 950) so I made some demo songs/video. These are raw sounds. Here's a bunch of patches on the youtube video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xzTPr87AfXo And here is the S900 doing a 909 impression. All the original 909 samples com...

Re: Quintessential boards for live electronica

i think the nord modular g2 would be a staple board for live shows. it's basically a blank slate and you can route a lot of different configurations for firing off loops and sequences live. plus completely modular fx and everything can be assigned MIDI controllers in addition to the front panel. eve...

Re: Withdrawals

i just recently sold my Crumar DS 2 and miss it dearly but it went to a friend I make music with so I don't feel as distant. I did also get a Roland JP 8000 in the deal and am absolutely loving it. I have had loads of analogs and va's and still don't get why the JP gets such a bad rep. I have a Jupi...

Re: Ministry All Day Cover with S900

ok i posted another example of all akai s900. I'm starting to realize just how many tracks I've heard this sampler on. It's really easy to create very hard hitting basslines. Again I used the nord modular g2 to feed some basic source waves and did the rest of the sculpting in the akai. http://matia....

Re: Ministry All Day Cover with S900

Thanks for the listen and feedback! Yes you heard correctly. That's Nick cage in bad lut. 2 :) I don't have any more tracks that are straight s900 tracks but that might change soon as I am really feeling like making some more stuff in this vein. Those old Wax Trax records are the tunes I grew up on....

Re: Ministry All Day Cover with S900

there's just so much inside those nords it's mental ... you can get lost for days and days ... i really like what the s900 does to synth sounds especially the nord. gives it a really nice lo fi kind of vibe that sits very nicely in the mix. the strings also came out better than i expected. lovely 12...

Re: MFB Nanozwerg, Urzwerg, Microzwerg & Megazwerg

that sequencer looks wonderful. uses for sequencers: clock with an audio rate oscillator for waveforms, rhythm patterns, rhythmic synthesizer lines beyond acid, programmable modulation ... i mean there's so much you can do with a sequencer. as for sample and hold ... how about quantized keyboard pla...

Re: Ministry All Day Cover with S900

my nord modular g2. all the synth sounds came from the nord but i resampled them into the s900. thanks for the kind words.
