State Azure - Distant Space

YouTuber State Azure creates a beautiful ambient soundscape with his modular rig and Elastic Drums!

Video Description:

Glitchy ambient soundscape with the 7U case + iPad for percussion running Elastic Drums.

Patch Notes:
Not much to say about this one, it's a very simple sample based piece. Using Rainmakers random trigger input from noise tools random out to generative constant randomisation in Rainmaker, which is being fed the output from iPad via the Line In 1u. Various modulation on the Rainmaker, pitch, comb size etc modulated by Modbox and 2hp Rnd. Extra glitch FX from Assimil8or into Pico DSP (granular delay) also modulated then through Cinnamon filter (HP) with cutoff modulated by Modbox.

Recorded direct to DAW. Some compression and limiting was added in post. No other FX.

Chris Lody - Synthwave on Volca Keys synced to DS-10

YouTuber Chris Lody's latest Jamuary video features Korg Volca Keys synced to a Nintendo DS running Korg DS-10. The results can best be described as LoFi Vangelis! It's pretty damn awesome for its size.

Video Description:

Day 15 of Jamuary

Depressing news in Britain today, and with that in mind here's a bit of a 80's post apocalyptic movie soundtrack kind of thing, synthwave if you will, on a Korg Volca Keys synced up to Korg Ds-10 on the Nintendo Ds with my own little green tin box mixer. It's not a happy post apocalypse, by the sounds of it I think the robots are winning.
