Jam with Teenage Engineering OP-1, MicroGranny 2.0 & Volca Bass

September 9, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

A little jam with Teenage Engineering OP-1 Synthesizer, a Korg Volca Bass and a Bastl Instruments MicroGranny 2.0 Granular Sampler.

The OP-1 is playing drums and a synth part. Most are on effects send to the MS-70CDR for reverb/space effect. The Volca bass is also running through the Kaoss Pad.

Everything is synced via a Kenton USB Midi Host – so that when play is pressed on the OP-1 the Volca starts too and the Midi clock is also sent to the MicroGranny 2.0 so if I was playing with the knobs it would stay in time.

Podolski – free Linux synthesizer instrument from u-he

u-he has announced a Linux version of Podolski, a free synthesizer instrument previously released for Windows and Mac.

Thanks to the enthusiasm of KVR member abique, we now have *native* Linux VST2 x64-bit builds of our plug-ins.

Needless to say, this is first steps. Hence, we figured we’d throw out a nice freebee to get as much feedback as we possibly can from the Linux audio community.

The plug-in is available for download from the u-he forum at KVR Audio.

Creating the Enjoy the Silence (Depeche Mode) bass line via Oberkorn MK3 and Telemark Synthesizer

September 8, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Take it up a notch! http://tinyurl.com/lctm7ra

…by request!

*Watch in HQ for best video/audio quality!

Here’s a recreation of the classic bass line from Depeche Mode’s “Enjoy the Silence” (Violator!) using DM-style methodologies.

By utilising a step sequencer and a flexible analogue synth (Analogue Solutions Oberkorn & Telemark respectively), you can produce the moving / transitional effects inherent in a complex bass sequence such as this one.

Given the timing of the pattern, the Oberkorn was MIDI-stepped manually (see Midi-Stepping an Analogue Sequencer video for more information) and the pitch transposition was handled via MIDI as well. Alternatively, the pitch could be played live via MIDI.

The key is to take advantage of the precise opening and closing of the filter via Oberkorn CVB.

All settings will ultimately be approximate, as analogue synths will differ from machine to machine. Use the settings as starting points and then tweak away!

Enjoy (the Silence).
