Steelberry Clones – Sisters

April 10, 2011 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Sunday synth morning focusing on the KONG drum machine in Reason 5. Using MIDI and an AKAI MPK I tried to see how you could experiment around with the KONG as a means of generating more experimental sounds. All in all 5 different KONGs are used in this song, paired with additional Combinators and one Dr OctoRex for adding more punch. The video is merely a live shoot in order for you to get a feel for the basic set up in creating this type song and which filters and effects are used.

The song is called “Sisters”, I might do a more robotic version of it at a later stage, we’ll see
