this is incredibly lovely!
oof. so many beautiful things in here.
still super early days learning the 301 (going through all the @NeilParfitt vidjas right now THANK YOU SUH), the last melodic bit here is a 301 sine wave osc with a bit of modulation into it then a FreeVerb -
murp. and not really music yet, just trying to build a 4 triangle osc patch to use with the Tetrapad in Chord Mode. the height of each pad is controlling the Freeverb room size and the LPF frequency.
You are fishing for compliments…
To my ears this is pretty much music!
lol. i mean. i DO like how it turned out, and could be a neat thing to build off of?
but just meant it was more a programming/learning the ER-301 experiment. i’m sure it’s been done a billion times, but doing a four voice osc was neat while still having all the modular control over the bits.
REALLY DIGGING THIS MACHINE MODULE.
Made a couple live looping videos in which an er-301 is used for looping, with finger pressure effecting delay and reverb parameters after the looper. The other 301 is playing drum samples (pressure is doing stuff to the drums as well).
Some silly rubber-ish techno, used the 301 for effects and summing before going to the korgasmatron filter, plonk as “lead” and Toms of Finland does the drum parts. sequenced by the Squarp pyramid.
been thinking on this weird performance patch a while, and tonight i made it with the 301, voltage block, varigate 8+, wogglebug and pamela’s new.
bacially, you have two buffers, AA and BB. each 12 seconds long. AA gets stepped out of woggle deciding when to punch in and out of the buffer. clock out of woggle into pam, pam divides that by 8 and uses that as our reset. burst out woggle into BB’s punch in/out. AA & BB share the same reset. a kick and rimshot from er301 are played with varigate 8+ and voltage block turns up and down AA and BB’s volumes.
so you just kinda feed it something (korg minilogue in this case) and turn up and down wogglebug’s tempo to match. what it spits out is crazy, since pamela resets varigate 8, AA, and BB every 8 bars. essentially you have your beat/modulation loopings constantly running, but what’s dynamic is that the minilogue was literally just jamming into turn 301 and turning out good techno. anyways, here it is. hope you like it.
I have a new album out today. The ER-301 was one of the main tools I used to make it, especially for transposing, pitch shifting, then playing and reprocessing loops. There’s also some manual grains on the last track, ‘Reprise’. All guitar you hear originates from only 2 short recordings. Enjoy.
Awesome—new music to listen to while I work from home today
I did a one-minute recipe/how-to for POWWOW that posted today–lush pitch fields/pads from a single oscillator+301 (w/special guest appearance from the 101 ). Love this module more and more every session
Thanks, @Joe! Yes–it was a challenge to fit all of the necessary info into the ig/60-second format, so I plan on uploading a longer video to youtube soon!
Nice, thanks for sharing. But yeah 60 seconds though
So while we’re patiently waiting for the new firmware to drop, I will hereby officially ‘premiere’ a recording I did with a music video on YouTube (new feature apparently, let’s check it out). This is the first video I’m posting on a brand new channel and I have zero followers so I will be my own audience but for those wanting to take a break from Cmd+R Ctrl+R on the other thread, check it out!
It’s a patch I made with my ER-301 micro-system on a couch in Amsterdam, in a dark one room apartment far away from home, while my two year old son was recovering in bed from a high fever. There was an atmosphere of hopelessness and helplessness at night but at the same time a feeling of release in surrendering to that moment. I was staying in the flat of an ever so slightly dysfunctional friend of mine, and it was a mess. Just the biggest chaos ever and literally chock full of weird decoration and ancient laptops stacked upon mountains of shoes, blankets, plants. It had a certain charm though and my son loved it. I filmed the geraniums on the balcony and made a little video.
Haha, funny. There is a countdown to premiere. Hey How can I actually embed the video on this page instead of just linking to YouTube…?
I don’t think you can embed it as storage demands for the service would balloon with video files if they could be attached.
I didn’t mean store it on the site, but just format as a YouTube video like other posts on this page have. For some reason my link doesn’t reformat automatically. Maybe because there is some sort of caching going on and the video is not yet available for embedding… Oh well!
usually you just paste links and it loads the preview.
maybe try to cut out the “s” from https
Nice track, and cool video! It’s always inspiring to see video footage with a modular music track. Makes me want to give it a go. Nice work!
