The performance does a great job of highlighting the possibilities of the NDLR, and showing how it lets you play and control multiple synths at once.
Here’s what Hosking has to say about it:
“I’ve long wanted to make a couple of videos about how the sequencer really determines where the music goes, and I thought there was no better example of this than the NDLR, which is such a beautiful little inspiration device. In my opinion, I think the NDLR thrives at making interesting ambient explorations, and I hope I’ve demonstrated that here.
I’ve also wanted to make a “poly synth jam” and show each of the poly synths I currently have next to each other.
Some really interesting things revealed themselves here: 1) the Peak is the clear winner for bass; 2) I like the OB-6 a lot better for plucks or shorter decays than I do for pads; 3) the Abyss holds its own among these bigger names and is a real gem with lots of personality; 4) the Deckard’s Dream isn’t particularly rich or versatile, but adds the most beauty to the track, and it’s a joy to make a patch from scratch.”
