Syntakt standalone music

I never thought you were, I’m just goofing around waiting for supper.

I’m an OB user by the way.

The inevitability of drone (for real though, I kinda love this synth for drones).

I’ll pay $100 for the first 909 hi hat Syntakt patch. Don’t care if it takes 6 machines to make, considering the 909 hats were samples of acoustic cymbals, it would be pure wizardry to get that out of the Syntakt, Wizardry that I’d happily be a patron of. :moneybag:

Some techno, quickly hashed out on a whim (pick up an axe and play)

Recorded to iPhone with Woodpressor limiter only

Inspired by the 909 hats nostalgia thread

Not sure what genre this is - heres a jam from tonight. I pushed the button on the Syntakt a while ago, but life n shit has meant Ive not really been able to give it any time… its a pretty gratifying box. recorded straight out of the machine. I do miss the master compressor from the Digitakt…

well, I mean, yes, exactly. (cross-posted, sorry hehe)

Syntakt + Amiga 1000 (running Music Mouse by Laurie Spiegel) recorded into S-VHS (nothing against Overbridge)

Love it :heart_eyes:

Not sure sure what genre either, but sounds very industrial!

You know, I’m actually warming up to them a bit… now I’m not trying to make them sound like a 909 :sweat_smile:

This is awesome, very early Chemical Brothers vibe!

this is shockingly good - great work.

if you don’t mind me asking ,which machine type is doing the main, low drone that underpins everything ? Looks like it’s not on a DVCO track, so it must be a digital machine ? Gnarly as hell. brilliant stuff.

Yes, Industrial - awesome!

Oh, and what is the first sound of the melodic motif that sounds like someone is hitting a pan (0:05)? Is it SY TOYS?

Edit: And the sound at 0:51, how is that done? Sorry, I actually try to get something like that out of my Syntakt for a while now :stuck_out_tongue:

Thanks! I will take a look at what I did and remind myself :slight_smile: I know the sound at 0:51 is using the LFO set to 2K and max oscillating something-or-other, but I can’t quite remember what…

Thanks!

Most of the droning digital synths are Bits, I think one of them is a Chords machine, but the first two drones plus the deep drone are all Bits - so that’s the machine which underpins basically the whole thing.

Cheers. Fantastic stuff.

I turned this pattern into a full (albeit short) track :smiley:

FNK!

All syntakt - some slight limiting in DAW
Stereo in to DAW via Overbridge

Yep - the first sound is just the toy - and honestly there isn’t too much that’s special going on there, just picking some pitches that work well with the sound, and a small eq boost at around 1k.

The other sound is dual Vco with the lfo at 2k modulating the sync cfg, along with a band pass filter. It’s not a tuneable sound. I’ll happily upload the project file if it’s useful to you.

Oh and everything cranked through the drive with overdrive turned up.
