  1. Very lovely :>

    Out of curiosity what’s that bit of gear you got controlling the main sequence in the top left? It has a little screen showing a waveform.

  2. WOW, the amount of time and effort. I mean at no point did that get stale, which was impressive because I’ve seen people put tremendous amounts of time into something like this and not get results. It sounded “live,” like he was playing it.

    1. Nothing magic with the drums, just using the TR-8 and its internal pattern sequencer. Also, there is some added percussion using the volca sample synched with the rest of the gear. Could not be more vanilla than that. cheers !
