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...
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.....
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!
If you remember my previous posts, the idea behind these two performances was to compare the Korg MS20 with the Korg iMS20 (controlled by th...
If you never heard about them, that's not surprising, as these machines are really really rare!
Do you remember my "Improving Your Reverbs" post? This is kinda of a follow up!
And this time, the setup is completely different!
Before I get a “real” synth post ready for you, I thought it would be nice to post some photos of an extremely rare machine, the Axcel Te...

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! ;)
