Goa Trance with
Korg Volca Bass
Roland Boutique TR-09
Korg Mini KP2s
Behringer Echo Machine
For today's song-a-day I once again turned to acid (:D) but with a bit of a twist. Playing the part of a tb-303 in this video is Korg Ds10 running on a Nintendo Ds. Who knew Ds10 could make such a convincing 303 sound? Helped along by a dose of Zoom 1201 reverb it sounds the part to me! The Volca Keys plays a long 8 bar pad-ish sound using it's 'Fifth' setting, the Volca Sample is loaded up with 808 and 909 samples and the Pocket Operator Sub plays a deep bass line alongside everything. Reckon this one could do with being made into something longer, and turn those dam claps down!
Sync is running from the Ds to the Volcas and then to the Pocket Operator btw. It's the only way I can get it all to sync up. I'm also using the Sample as I 2 channel device with the kick panned left and all the other drums right so they can have reverb and not the kick.

Reader Beli Bat did some funky 80's jamming on his hardware, with KORG iPolysix and Rozeta.
This time i drifted from my usual musical domain, because i missed playing bass and to pay tribute to a genre i like so much... Synthwave!
As usual i don’t like to use pre recorded patterns. So everything is played, looped and sequenced before your very eyes.
About the setup:
The TR-8s drum machine plays the drums with a kit made of mixed Linndrum, LM1, Drumtrax and 707 samples.
The Minibrute use its arpeggiator and is played live.
The Minilogue XD is used to play a wobbly pad, played and then looped through Ableton Live.
The classic synthwave bass sound is made by iPolisyx app on the iPad, sequenced by Rozeta bassline with notes triggered on the Nanokey Studio.
The Waldorf Rocket is the source of the sweet 80s chords lead in the last part of the jam. It is played live using Push 2 pads.
In the first part of the track are my beloved Fender Telecaster for funky rhythm chords and my trusty MusicMan Sting Ray for the groovy slap part.
There are 2 expression pedals, connected to an iRig Blueboard, i use to control the Minilogue XD and the Minibrute filter cutoff plus a whitenoise sample filter cutoff, for transitions.
Ableton Live is used as a master clock, as a midi sequencer and for effects.
All audio tracks are passed through an Mbox Pro 3 soundcard or using usb audio, and then recorded in Ableton.
Effects are mostly Ableton stock and Soundtoys plugins.
Video is a continous take from two cameras (an iPhone and an iPad). I put together the two videos with the audio track in Ableton and then saturated the color in iMovie.
YouTuber LOOK MUM NO COMPUTER is quickly aging out of this character. He's also found an intriguing piece of music making technology from the 90's. You too can pick up Roland's PMA-5 relatively cheaply on eBay.
TBH it is pretty awesome! The Weirdest midi synthesizer sequencer of the 1990's its oddness needed a video!
