"Romper 303"

"Romper 303" [mp3 removed]

Have been fooling around with a TB303 software clone. For some reason when it is responding to note commands coming from Cubase (as opposed to operating in stand-alone mode) it starts writing its own version of the 16 step sequence it's supposed to be playing. This takes the form of the 16 notes playing 1, 2, or 3 times followed by a sped-up recapitulation of the notes. I have no idea why this is happening but in this case am pleased with the result. This piece also has some "live" sounding drum hits playing along with the underlying filtered rhythm pattern (another Electribe preset). It has kind of a jazzy feel. Lots of happy accidents in this one.
