Here is a track I made on Labor Day. I hope you like it. It is my attempt at PsyTekk.

Bob Dylan says, "It has sound all over it."

Here is my first recording with my "modular". It is just frakking around with sounds, but I had fun making it. Here is the song (or here for you mac people).

This is a pic of the setup I used:

I got an Electribe ESX a few weeks ago. I like it a lot. The arpeggiator is fun. This cured my GAS for the Elektron stuff. I do wish the Electribe had more sequences. I have been using it to control my Evolver and CZ-1 and syncing it to the Fat Controller so the modular can make noises on top.

It can take a long time to program in the sequences, but it isn't any more frustrating than using software. The Fat Controller is great because I can just tweak the notes in real time. It even slides while the sequence is playing. And I can move multiple steps by different amounts simultaneously. No software could do that.

Now I see the need for a bigger mixer on the horizon. It took me ten years to really get my guitar setup down. Now I can get most any sound that I am looking for pretty quickly. And most importantly it all works.

I should get back to my Warmoth and AX87 projects. I have a 5 day weekend. Time to breakout the soldering iron.

With my first paycheck...

I got the last Fat Controller.

Frostwave stopped making them. Warm Cola is sold out. I emailed Big City Music. They had one left. And now it is all mine. HAHAHAHAHAHA

Wow, I haven't updated in a month.

I recorded a really cool song with the Evolver, the drum machine, and a lot of samples. Pineapple man liked it enough to make a video for it. I am going to try to expand it to some kind of EP by the time he finished the video. I think I'll use samples from UFO for the next song. I'd also like to use samples from Things to Come. So that gets me up to three songs. I am resisting the tempataion to take (more) stuff from Alpha Centauri.

I'll try to have a songe up by my next post.
