"Red and Blue Noise"

"Red and Blue Noise" [mp3 removed -- please listen on Bandcamp]

Have been working on the modular synth to make it more beat-capable. This tune was all done with the modular, except the pads, "shaker," and some effects. The kick isn't as punchy as a sampled kick -- it's a sine wave with short envelope -- but it sounds like a rhythm synth. Snares are white and pitched noise with random voltages modulating the filter. Hats are SID chip samples played in the Doepfer A-112 with random voltages affecting the pitch. The 303-ish runs are Doepfer mini-synth, played with random sequencer settings and then edited down to the most melodic clips. Much of the digital noise piled on at various points comes from the Segoh "bit rot" chip in Tiptop Audio's Z-DSP effects module.
