Today’s video completes the first stage of my All-Analogue Synth Setup thingie The setup was mostly unchanged from the last round – the aux chains had been separated into one with three delays (fed by the Volca Kick) and one with one delay (fed by the Minibrute/A100 combo). At a tempo of 105bpm, it’s a […]Read more "“Wenig” – State One of the All-Analogue Prototype Completed"
Along the same realms as in the last post, this one had actual video recording. The audio got a little too hot for my tastes (note to self: never expect it works “just like last week” for an all-analogue, preset-free setup).

I picked a single note – a G. And a step-sequencer approach thinking in 16th notes. And added synthesizers. This is the result: Following my strategy to use the DAW’s onboard tools when working on a sketch, the synths are virtual ones: the main synth is Retrologue, and the two synths doubling that (rushing and […]Read more "R&D: Acid de uma nota so"
I can’t really call this a good year. But maybe one of transition. Considering my lack of agility, don’t expect any big changes from my side in the short-term, meaning before years’ end, or maybe even not before next years’ end. Let’s hope that until then I’ll still be legally allowed to write a blog. […]Read more "That was 2016"
