Sunday Synth Jam: Here’s a hybrid analog + digital live in the studio synth jam from musician/developer/writer Chris Randall.
Here’s what he has to say about Micronoaut – Experiment Five:
Sequenced from Live, and I’m using a Korg nanoControl to turn tracks on and off and such.
I play the DSI TETR4 from my iPad running Audanika’s SoundPrism app, which is a very cool MIDI controller app done in a cycle-of-fifths layout. The little bass sound that comes in here and there is The World’s Most Expensive CS-5, while a René sequencer drives a SynthTech Cloud Generator for the arpeggiated sine part from the modular.
MeeBlip is running in to a Roland RE-201 for the sound you hear very early on, the snare-ish hit that has a spring ‘verb and echo. The other sound right in the beginning is an MS-20 running in to my circuit-bent BOSS RRV-10.
The other prevalent effects are Eos for the ‘verb, and the Eventide TimeFactor on its ModDelay algorithm, in line from the TETR4. This is what creates the big hollow drone sound. I just jack the feedback up full and when it is humming along I hit the repeat button.
Audio is available at bandcamp.
