This was a bit of a different performance to what I have done so far, with more actual playing with synths rather than relying on looper or sequencers to construct the performance.
And in case you want to listen or re-listen to this performance, here is the link:
In this performance, I use a simple setup made up by my Clavia Nord Modular G2X, Roland TR-909 and Korg Trident Mk1.
|3 truly amazing machines working together!|
In this setup, the Roland TR-909 provided all the drum sounds as well as MIDI clock to the Clavia Nord Modular G2, which plays two sequences, using the internal sequencer modules!
|Korg Trident, an amazing monstrous analog polysynth with 3 different sections and massive sound!|
And to enhance the sound a bit, I also added a Stereo Chorus in the FX section of the patch.
The second patch I created was used in two of the slots for this performance and provided the melodic sequences heard in my performance:
|"Sequy", a sequencer controlling a nice synth with some nice effects going on!|
In a single slot, you can easily fit a sequencer (or several of them) plus a nice synth and even some effects!
In this case, the delay was synced to the clock sent by the Roland TR-909, which allows for very nice grooves to be created ;)
To mix everything, I created the following patch, named "MixO7", which features two nice effect chains aimed at giving some ambience to the whole performance:
|Mixing with a nice ambient touch, thanks to "MixO7" ;)|
Again, the delay modules are synced to the clock coming from the Roland TR-909.
With a delay chain with multi tap delays and a reverb chain, you can really get a nice ambience that I felt really enhanced the performance and made it sound even more "symphonic"!
|Roland TR-909 + Clavia Nord Modular G2X = a great groove box combo!|
To achieve the symphonic sound, I used all the different parts of the Korg Trident simultaneously (which is a fairly easy machine to program).
The effects used in the Clavia Nord Modular G2X "MixO7" patch were important as well, but no other external effect was used!
I think this sums up what I did for this performance!
If you enjoyed the sound I got and want to download these patches, you can download them in the link I gave you above, in which I can listen to my performance!
If you enjoyed this performance, stay tuned for a new performance tonight, again at 22 GMT!
