Techno with Nanoloop + synchronized Monotron analog filter

November 1, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Both, a cuicuit-bent Korg Monotron and a Nanoloop (Synthesizer and Sequencer on Nintendo Gameboy) are synced by the trigger impulses sent by a Roland TR-626 drum computer.
This allows to filter the raw chiptune sound of Nanoloop by the analog filter of the Monotron. The retrigger of the Monotron LFO is the red wire. The sync mod is done like shown here: http://stevewoodward.posterous.com/lfo-reset-point-on-korg-monotron

Jordan Passmore Techno Demo – TR-808, MPC-60, SC-880

August 29, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Jordan Passmore demo of the Roland TR-808, Akai MPC-60 and Roland SC-880. SC-880 is playing the rave patches, MPC-60 is loaded full of TR-909 samples and is also sequencing 909/synth, TR-808 is doing 808. All held together by a Garfield Nano Doc Sync/Clock adapter. All sounds are mixed live on an old Studiomaster mixing board; from there they pass through an Electra EQ, then finally into my Native Instruments Kore Audio Interface. The SCC-80 has an analog delay attached to it, which when I’m out of the shot, I’m usually messing with. I also have a Behringer Virtualizer Pro Reverb on an effects send (a bit of the 909 and SC-880 are send to this).

The MPC-60 loaded with 909 samples is pretty hard to beat for completely cutting through a mix. I personally love the 808 so of course I threw that on top as well. The SC-880 is very interesting and totally useful (multitimbral and full of many very usable effects). I found these patches on it and decided to do a short demo from there.
