I absolutely love our prolific @eaves / Ivar Tryti's music, and thought it would be cool to have all in one thread

With @eaves’ agreement, I have tracked down every thread about their music and put them all in one place.

You might want to have a look at these links as well :wink:

After 31 Digitakt sketches, I succumbed to GAS and bought a 2nd hand Digitone. It's GLORIOUS

I recorded guitar into the DT and made a beat inspired by Radiohead
I imagined a world where Sega Megadrive had a Digitone as its FM engine and made this boss battle theme
Made my first track using both Digitakt and Digitone at the same time! Overwhelming, but looking forward to doing more DT+DN stuff

I’ve had my Digitakt for almost 3 weeks now and have been playing around with it in most of my free time. It’s so much fun to make music on it! I decided to try a different approach for this track.

I have a really old sample pack called The Lo-Fi Box, and I started by selecting samples at random (without previewing): 4 kicks, 4 hihats, 4 snares and 4 samples from a folder named “unsorted”.

The drum samples were used to make a beat and was resampled into three loops which I then used mixed together by using an LFO assigned to “sample slot”. There’s more info in the description on youtube, and I’d be happy to explain in more detail if anyone’s interested. Thanks for checking it out!

Thanks!

It’s a bit of a long tutorial, but I got a couple of requests on how I do my drums, so I made this tutorial. Hope you find it interesting! Thanks for checking it out.

Thanks for taking the time to record this. Very interesting. I don’t own a Digitakt, but this video helped me get a good idea of what the work flow is like compared to other elektron boxes.

Great video, I really enjoyed the techniques you showed, and the casual style of it.

I had no idea that clearing the base samples, and loading a whole set would replace them like that.

Best regards,

Gino

Thank you! I was inspired by Cuckoo’s mega tutorial on the Digitakt where he goes through everything at a casual pace. I also tried to do as much as possible in one take (managed the whole thing), because I’m sure that if I spent time editing it, I wouldn’t be happy with my choice of words or how often I said “um, uh” and would likely never post the video :stuck_out_tongue: . If I do more tutorials, it’ll likely be in the same format, but hopefully I’m more comfortable talking into a microphone. Still not used to hearing my own voice.

You’ll get used to hearing it! And for sure, if you are inclined to share your knowledge and techniques, please don’t let perfectionism about the tutorial’s presentation prevent you from doing so. This was really a top-notch tutorial, thorough but not overly formal, and provides a ton of very useful knowledge. I especially liked your analog check list…creates a visual cue as to where you are in the tutorial so that during review it’s easy to find the right place. Just good stuff all around!

Thank you very much! I really like “real time” tutorials, so I knew I’d have to prepare a checklist. The checklist was just as much for me as it was for viewers, I forgot my place sometimes and had to check the list :stuck_out_tongue:. It’d also make it easier to click through and find the right spot in the video, like you said!

Really great tutorial and I really like the results. I learned a lot from watching and you took care to explain what you were doing. A lot of in depth tutorials still have swift hand movements as the presenter does something that’s second nature to them and they fail to explain it. Even Cuckoo is guilty of this. You managed to avoid it and I really liked that. Well done. I hadn’t thought to compress like that before resampling, but really enjoyed the resulting sound and will definitely be trying it.
