Rheyne's latest live looping jam is a bit different from his usual style. This one is dark and angsty, with a whole lot of modular synthesis at the core.
Live looping with all sounds from Moog and Make Noise synths and modules. Each synth voice is played on a NI KompleteKontrol 49 keyboard, with presets stored on different MIDI channels for separate control of each voice.
The hi-hats are created by muting and un-muting a clock signal from a Make Noise Tempi, set to a 10ms duty cycle and fed to the VCA input of a Dave Smith DSM01 filter, which is receiving noise from one of the Moog Mother-32 modules. The S+H effect on the filter is from another clock signal on the Tempi sent to a Make Noise Wogglebug, with its random voltage output sent to the DSM01 VCF input. The Tempi is kept in sync with Ableton from one of the outs on an Expert Sleepers ES-8 and a clock signal from Silent Way.
MIDI loops are recorded in Ableton with a Novation Launchpad, and Lemur is running on an iPad as an Ableton remote. All effects are from Ableton. Audio was recorded with the ES-8 and a PreSonus 1818VSL, with the final output recorded to the balanced inputs of a Tascam DR-44 from the mixer.
