"Odd Burbles" [6.8 MB .mp3]
Continuing with this hardware-only series where I'm Octatracking modular synth blorts, MIDI-to-cv-triggering and recording them simultaneously. This is a "gritty" analog sound owing largely to the use of a couple of cv-controlled, low-res sample modules that are error-prone (in a good way to my ears).
Also minimal because I'm still taking baby steps with this fairly complicated method of building up sound.
I cheated once and used the computer -- ran out of tracks and had to mix down four tracks to one. Have since figured out how to do that within the sequencer. There's no real point to being a purist since this is the antithesis of "live" -- where you might want to highlight performative integrity. But not relying on Cubase is forcing me to learn my way around the machine. Some Elektron users (in YouTube comments?) noted that the trig (sequencer step key) method of recording is rather cumbersome for a machine that purports to "sample on the fly." Am not doing anything on the fly and it's still cumbersome.
Update, Aug. 2013: Bumped the volume and re-uploaded.
