"Ghost Laser"

"Ghost Laser" [4.1 MB .mp3]

The sort of quacking, '80s style pulse that runs through this is an analog-generated signal - two LFOs modulating a combination square and triangle wave. The intersecting waveforms create interesting syncopations. Pitch is then added via control voltage--an ascending four note pattern. This pulse is then sampled and the beats counted so it can be put on a timing grid and other instruments added via MIDI. The rather absurd Reaktor Lazerbass makes another appearance for the "lead" lines. The rhythms are analog or analog-modeling with MIDI-generated triplet echoes.
