Maybe…

awww… not a lot of noise here…

I did the first 10 weeks on the M8: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLqj-J6lNG3wZjZLJwKKAuqUk1lLp4oeAl

The highlight there:

And I’m doing the current 10 or so on the OP-1. Best to watch so far:

Next focus after that will be the A4, probably extending to some other gear too (bit less of an all-in-one box than the M8 or OP-1, but I’ll probably still try to do a pure A4 track or two)

And after that, who knows…

Uhlala, love the spangle-track & video! Do you have also a bandcamp-thing or so, where I could buy/download this track and maybe other of your tracks, too?

wooooaw. the Op-1 track was amazing! you really brought out what is so brilliant about the OP-1… its a sonic playground to record wtf you want. i love how playful that was.
You´re making me want to invest more time and get to know the OP-1 even more.

how did you do the visuals because that looks like it might have been quiet time consuming.

python script to construct the visual/rhythmic patterns from source images.
then standard video editor to arrange it against the tune.

yes i didn’t sleep much that night…

nor this night:

Yeaaaa Looking fwd to some A4 action movies :popcorn:

i hit a peak with the M8 and 0-coast; one of the best tunes i’ve ever made.


so we’re moving on to the A4 !

I made a tune featuring the A4 as a 4-voice poly box, sequenced by the M8. The performance macros are where it really shines, next to any other gear i have.

The coolest part is how much it sounds like a dubby high-feedback modulated delay, when the onlyactual delay is a single ping-pong no feedback.
Just hit a sweet spot of filter self-oscillation (HP1 filter 2), and pitch/cutoff modulation.
