types of motion sequences that you use on your tracks

Post by balma » Fri Jul 16, 2010 10:41 pm

just wondering what types of knob/sliders motion sequencers do you record on your tracks enhancing them

Normally, I do not leave my patterns/sequences without a single control change registered on them.

I love small variations on the patches on long lapses of time.

Lately, I try to put a variation on everything:

Is this hi hat too repetitive? I slow the bpm, and recording on realtime, I introduce small variations on the DECAY TIME of the hi hat.

Classic: raising the filter of a pad before the pattern ends, creating a crescendo effect and working also as a transition to a stronger verse

If I'm editing on a sampler-rompler, I record a motion sequence, modifying the start time of the patch on some portions of the track.

I just try to do not repeat EXACTLY the same sound again and again and again. I enjoy more my music, if I deliver several versions of the same sound, tweaking parameters and recording those changes.

LFO moding the filter or Osc for swoops or robotic glitch. And with multi (4) LFOs like on the PEK, it's a blast to get all sorts of crazy sweeps. Really modding and any and everything on the PEK produces great results.

using the best "monomachine" machine for this sort of stuff
change the lfo scale from 2X to 4X times
sweep the lfo amt aswell

really just about any and all get p-locked as we say
Dont bother its not worth it!

Sample&Hold can work wonders when applied to 'canned' motion-sequencing stuff
