Live DSI Tempest Improvization – Sound Design and BeatFlipping
Nice new demo of the Tempest in action:
My name is James Jaret Kojac / Syndicate Synthetique. I’m a Sound Designer and one of my latest projects has been working with DSI on the Tempest Drum Machine.
This video is primarily a showcase of what my friends and I have been calling “beat flipping” on the DSI “Tempest”. Beat Flipping is essentially an exercise in live improvisation to see how far one can take the same 4bar pattern on one device.
All Patches/Sounds and patterns are all designed from zero’d out custom patch initializations and designed by myself for DSI and/or Myself.
This video is 100% Live Tempest. It was recorded into an MBox2 into Reaper at 48/24 .wav with no pre- or post-processing except normalization.
In this video I demonstrate use of polyphonic synthesis, reverse, beat roll, pad pressure modulation routing and obviously a bunch more. As time goes on and I add them, the timed comments should go over a few things as I do them.
Enjoy! More to come…
