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.

Background : the 1996 was a very exciting year. Techno music passed beyond the “old school” era and producers diffusely started creating complex sounds, emotional athmospheres and rich structures. In that period the modern meaning of computer music was at its early stage and everyone tried to do his best with the few instruments at his disposal. The result took the form of hundreds of innovative labels (Primate, Soma, Nova Mute, Evolution, Plus8, just to mention few) that laid the fundations of modern techno music.
The source : The original loops and sequences had been created with several hardware synthesizers, drum machines and by sampling vinyls and radio signals. All the loops were initially sampled, edited and processed with a glorious Creamware TripleBOARD, the first “Hard Disk Recording” system for PC, and then recorded on a Tascam DA-20 (basically used as storage medium because of the small hard disc capacity).
