Making a Berlin School Track Quickly with Minimum Gear

Alba Ecstasy did an interesting video showing how he puts together a Berlin School style track using Volcas and a Novation Circuit, with a Roland Demora for delay.

Video Description:

How To make a Berlin School track in a few minutes and with minimum gear. Sure, this is a simple track, but starting from here you can add layers of sounds.
I used:
- for sequence: Volca Keys in different modes. Volca Keys is sequenced by the Circuit in Cmin. For reverb I used Clouds.
- for pads: Volca Fm - and I played on it with the Beatstep Pro, because the keys are very small to play nice pads. For delay I used Roland Demora.
- for drums: Novation Circuit.
And this is it! I even not played the internal sounds of the Circuit, so if I'm adding a new (bass) sequence from it, the track can be improved a lot!
All the above gear are directly recorded into the Logic Pro X via my audio interface Echo Audiofire 12. No other FX were added.

BoardWeevil Exploration

Reader Marc S. Langelier shared this bizarre BoardWeevil exploration. He mentioned being inspired by some videos he'd seen of the Make Noise 0-coast, so he wanted to show off what he could do with the much cheaper BoardWeevil hardware.
