Me too. Sample library needed some TLC and I’m deep in it. KonMari+
I’m currently on day 23 of 36 Days of Type. A letter (or number) each day for 36 days. This year, I thought I’d create an A/V experiment per day. I’ve used just Model:Cycles to create all the beats except for A, B and C (which were modular jams).
This is awesome! How do you sync them? I have also OT + 2xDFAM but have never played them together yet!
Great question! I have a single track with a really short loud noise (I used a kick, changed release time to 0 and hold to some really small value) pushing out of the CUE outs and then 1/4 inch to 1/8th inch adapter for each DFAM ADV/Clock. Next time I am going to pan left and right on the CUE outs with 2 different tracks to have polyrhythms with the DFAMs
Fun fact I use the trigger outs of the DFAMs as sound sources for 2 additional THRU tracks
Also great choice of gear haha. It’s endless fun. Conditional trigs on the loud noise really brings the DFAMs to life too
I started recording like crazy about two weeks ago and have now about 10 new songs that I’m gonna release on my own label in April. The album is called Real Music for Unreal Times: Volume 2 and consists mostly of handpan and reverb from Ableton. Next week I’ll add some sounds with my Lyra-8. There’s also some dirty warm e-piano from Ableton. I’m still considering recording some acoustic harp and strings, but that depends if I can manage to get my friends in studio during the lockdown… Pretty excited about this album as it contains some of my best writing and playing to date!
Oh a Lyra-8? You should check out DFAM mind melting thread a few peeps use the Lyra-8 in there. Apparently it’s quite the pair with DFAM soundscapes… And congrats on finding a flow in the last 2 weeks.
Nice! I have Doepfer Dark Time at my studio and I’ll probably do the sync with that one. Just before the lockdown I got an empty 60HP Moog Eurorack case that I’m gonna use for Polyend Poly2, which gives me total control over my two DFAMs!
And yeah, I’ve been following the DFAM mind melting thread but I don’t think I posted yet! Great stuff! And you’re right, Lyra-8 and DFAM make a great combo!
Some people on the TV annoyed me, I made some headache techno because of them.
KIN ELL MATE! Bangin that was! You naughty young man!
Well I finally got round to making a beat for my guy to rhyme on. Then my wife and kid went to bed early, so I thought I’d treat myself to a good old fashioned bit of a remix of it for my own and you lot’s pleasure.
Thanks for listening.
I’m off to listen to John Lennon.
You have a digitakt right? Is that in use here? With DFAM and lyra sounds? Doesnt really matter what you did, its bloody brilliant mate
It’s just the Digitakt and Digitone. Digitakt is using an amen break and two samples of Gal Gadot turned into the scrapy hihat/snare sounds and a Pantera sample mangled beyond all recognition. The Digitone is playing the kick and hat pattern and the pad sound.
No Lyras or DFAMs were hurt in the making of this headache.
Noice. I thought I could hear the amen in there!
don’t have energy for much apart from making screwed jpop edits
Blackwater Hardware Ambient. A friend of me had done a whole Album wanted to share with you.
Really dig this, it’s gorgeous
Who wouldn’t want to turn the big knob on the machinedrum?
Yeah, my girls love smashing on the buttons, sliders, and rotary knobs. I have to say, “Be gentle” constantly, hahah! Honestly that rotary knob is no good. The encoder is all funky, it jumps values like crazy! Been that way since I got it. Maybe I should get it fixed.
I laughed so hard when she started pulling knob caps off the EMU.
this thread is so fucking dope
