I’m trying to finish the last two tracks for my album. This is the seed of one of those tracks. All was recorded live from my modular synth after an hour or so of patching.
Throwback tuesday!! A couple of years ago I did a live recording of my 1975 analog synth Roland System-100, where I used the sample & hold function to create loops and noises. Everything was recorded in one take and only some reverb was added afterwards. Check it out if you like phat analog bleeps and bloops.
File this one under utterly uniquely sounding analog synthesizer.
The Onde Magnétique OM-1 is a device with which you control a modified cassette-player. Into the player you put various pre-recorded cassettes (flute, vox etc) and by playing the buttons on the controller you set the speed of the cassette motor. Which in turn produces notes in different pitches. Really cool concept. Like the bastard child of a Mellotron. Check it out!
The OM-1 costs $285 and can be ordered from their web site.
Some techno I put together with my modular. Enjoy!
I did a demo of some of the possibilities using sample & hold on the System-100. This is a bit different from the usual stuff I do nowadays but here you go..
