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). There’s a more complex beat from the Volca Kick (if only so much more), […]Read more "All-Analogue Synth Setup Continued"
I’ve been talking about it for a long time – this is the first proper action: I recorded a synth track using an all-analogue signal chain.Read more "POC: The All-Analogue Signal Chain"

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"

Day two of Acoustic Nerdville found a change in the signal chain. The change to a more tonal/guitar-oriented result however had nothing to do with that.Read more "Acoustic Nerdville: Detail Changes"
Nerdville is back! After the Nerdville setup – comprised mainly of stompboxes – had been used rather extensively in 2011 (both for the actual Nerdville sessions and for the Firenze Loopfest), it has now returned – if only to use the new acoustic guitar and a plastic hose (both of them birthday gifts) in that context.Read more "Acoustic Nerdville: The Return of the Stompboxes"
