I was pretty blown away by the feedback I got on my last song, so I've decided to do a whole album in my own HardPsy style. Here is the second track, which builds on the themes explored in Colony Collapse Disorder. I promise the next one will be fun and funny! MP3 download is available on Soundcloud.
In addition to my hardware I'm using Arctic Keys on the dirge, with a patch I developed while in a doctor's waiting room. The weird video effects at the end are from a second iPad running Sonograph, by the developer of Purple Goo.

I find so many great things reverse-stalking people who subscribe to me on YouTube. Two of the best things I've discovered on your YouTube feeds are My Drunk Kitchen and this video from recent subscriber Stacy Puckett. I am floored by the effort he put into this video, which was composed in the YouTube Capture web app. Effort is so much more important than expensive video software!
The AssBlaster by Metasonix, makers of the iCunt, is a distortion box and testament to obscenity in both its price and cover art. This vacuum tube based monstrosity costs $1,000, but you know you want those tubes! Ritchie DeCarlo decided it was worth the investment and put up this demo with Animoog. Also, today is the last day of the Moog sales!
More experimenting.... All sounds are the KV100. Lots of echo & reverbs added in the mix! 8 tracks recorded into Cubase ONE AT A TIME. Animoog is only being used to control the lead sound. The iPad is not producing any sounds here. The other tracks were created with analog sequencers synced with Cubase.
