VØSNE - Hypnotic Session

YouTuber VØSNE did an half-hour long Hypnotic Session on a whole bunch of hardware with touchAble!

Video Description:

Hypnotic & deep techno session played live & recorded reel to reel, using revox b77, roland space echo re-201, sequential dsi prophet 6, tempest, prophet 12, vermona perfourmer mkII, moog subphatty, elektron octatrack, strymon bigsky & timeline, acidlab bassline 3, livid cntrl-r, ableton live for samples & recorded analog sequences.
All the all synth on the stand are going thru the mackie mixer. All the synth are midi slaves and sequenced by the Octatrack. To fade in or out a synth, i use the cutoff filter mostly and when the sound is almost vanished, i shut down the sequenced midi channel on the Octatrack. On the Mackie mixer are coming external auxilliar fx like Space echo, Time line & Bigsky. Each channel/synth can get the proper amount of fx i want at anytime. Also i root 3 output channels from the Tempest to the Mackie : 1 stereo & 1 mono. I can use the send fx on those channels (usually stereo is for tempest synth and mono for rythm elements) That's all for the Mackie ! the stereo output is going to the soundcard Input channel. The Tempest is midi sync by usb from the computer/ableton's clock as well as the Octatrack. I use Tempest & Octatrack midi thru to sync bassline 3, volca keys & timeline. For this jam i use rythm sounds (clap, snare, hhat, tom, white noise, rimshot, etc..) & polysynth from the Tempest. All the kickdrums are Tempest analog homemade, most of them played straight from it, one is recorded and played from the Octatrack audio sequencer. As i said, 3 channels of the Tempest are root to the mackie, the 3 other mono are going straight to the soundcard. Same for the Octatrack audio & the Bassline 3. Concerning Ableton, i control the mix, the send fx & mute with livid cntrl-r. I play samples, loops and recorded sequences which i launch with an ipad & TouchAble app.

I hope you will enjoy this one too !

NAMM2017: Expressive E Touché

Sonic State found another fun NAMM oddity. The Expressive E Touché is a €400 wooden expression pedal that's meant to be played by hand. It looks like a lot of fun, but damn, that is a big asking price.

Video Description:

The slightly off the wall but extremely expressive touch controller is now taking pre orders, its a very sensitive modulation pad with several axis of movment and CV outputs.
