Grooveboxes are amazing tools for anyone doing electronic music, so I thought a topic about them would be more well timed now!
Some time ago I got a MOTU 828 MkII that I intended to keep as my spare sound card...
If you have been reading my blog for a while, you probably remember my past post about why I'm not so keen on recent groove boxes - htt...
This time, I tried to do the video a bit different, and recorded it during daytime, with the interface sided for the camera (so you should b...
If you never heard about them, that's not surprising, as these machines are really really rare!
If you remember, I promised to make quite some posts about the Clavia Nord Modular G2, but so far, it has been a bit absent from this blog.....
And now it is time for a quick video, showing how well the Clavia Nord Modular G2 can team up with Liine's Lemur app!
Get ready for a "fluty" performance, cause this drone uses some physical modelling tricks to achieve really nice sounds! :D
Fact Magazine published a very interesting article some weeks ago about 7 pieces of gear that helped define Autechre's sound!
More precisely, they are working with the new re-issue of the CEM 3340 chip, which, a VCO chip used on many truly classic synths!

CONCERT - Synth-ing Nº17!
I know it has been taking me quite a while to post my performances online, but have been trying to get the posts done and will hopefully be posting quite some performances pretty soon!
The next performance on the list was Synth-ing Nº17, which you can listen to here, as well as downloading the patches I used with my Clavia Nord Modular G1!
In this performance, I decided to go for a pretty simple setup, making use of my Clavia Nord Modular G1 together with my Roland SH-101, which is then looped by the amazing Electrix Repeater!
As you'd expect, the Roland SH-101 plays the more melodic parts, while the Clavia Nord Modular G1 was used to provide pad sounds as well as to remove the noise coming from the Electrix Repeater (using the same patch used in my previous performance Synth-ing Nº14).
The pad I programmed for the Clavia Nord Modular G1 was named "Tupad":
It makes use of a spectral oscillator, but also of the amazing WaveWrap module that can really enhance the sound of a synth!
It's definitely not a very complex patch, but I felt it sounded really good and fit the performance really well!
In the end, it was kind of a "traditional" performance from me, but the Roland SH-101 just sounds amazing, and it really forms a great combo together with the Electrix Repeater!
So I hope you enjoy listening or re-listening to it as well! ;)
