Sunday Synth Jam: Monofon’s Elysium is straight ahead Berlin School style synth music, 100% live performance, no overdubbing.
The track makes effective use of minimal material, with live sequence manipulation and patch tweaks creating a continuously changing soundscape.
All sequenced synth sounds come from the Club of the Knobs Model 15 modular synthesizer. Pads are from the Waldorf Blofeld. Some keys were fixed with tape to create the drones.
Monomachine was used as masterclock, as effect board (reverb and delay) and for the cymbal sounds.

A change from my usual shakey camera, stare at the modules videos. Some old CG things I made a while back mixed in with some goofing off in After Effects.
This is an improvised DJ/live set using only the Elektron Octatrack, Machinedrum and Monomachine.
Everything is done live. No additional effects or mixers were used.
The Octatrack plays back time stretched loops and samples. At the same time it sends out MIDI clock to the Machinedrum and the Monomachine. The audio outputs from these two units are connected to the two input pairs of the Octatrack. This makes the Octatrack function as a mixer and effects unit in addition to being a sound source.
