Attorks’ Stop The Time: Here’s a very nice Berlin School style sequenced synth jam, that combines keyboard synthesizers, modular synth sequences and even a little iPad.
This evening I was not that lucky with the recordings. The first take wasn’t that good, the second I liked very much but it appeared I forget to start the audio recording and the third take was somehow distorted again. Then I had a webcam meeting with my friend and walked the dog. After that I decided to try one last take because it was getting very late. And the result is a 23 minute video of which you see the first 15 minutes.
The music starts with two 4-step sequences in Dm from the self-built Modular and the Ian Fritz Teezer Through-Zero VCO combined which the Blacet MiniWave. Some chords on the Roland XP-80 are played and after that an arpeggiated chord on the Waldorf Q Keyboard is heared. The volume of the sequence of the Synthesizers.com Modular is turned up which sequence length is varied during the track. Again some chords on the XP-80 where after the length of the first two sequences is altered to 8-steps. Then a bass note is played on the iPad using an Eden synth voice in NanoStudio (preset A02, 7th Heaven). The arpeggiated bass on the Waldorf Q keyboard is introduced accompanied by notes from the NanoStudio voice and the sequences are transposed to Fm, Am and Cm. I use the two X-Y pads in NanoStudio to alter the sound of the voice. After a while the solo is played on the Clavia Nord Lead 1. At the climax the music is brought back to a minimum and the individual synths are heared.
The title refers to a phrase my friend and I sometimes use when we are together.
The whole video and music will be available on my website soon.
