tomorrow i’ll be performing live with the 301 for the third time.
this time tho it will really be the pulsating center of the setup.
i have a quicksave which is the foundation of the set.
it has a stereo channel for different stuff: field recordings, speech loops, textures, some synth\sample voices (with custom built analog shift register in the global chain).
one mono channel as clocked filtered delay locked on an aux send of my mixer.
one mono channel for drums\percussive duties.
then on the stereo channel i will load different “chain presets” in different parts of my set.
on the mono channel instead i will load single mixer channels (one for drums sampled from the modular itself, one for chopped up breakbeats, one for hihats\cymbal loops, also chopped up). all the mixer channel presets feature controlled randomization with white noise and sample and hold as well as other tricks.
i sequence all the percussive stuff from monome grid + ansible alternative polyphonic earthsea firmware (thanks @mudlogger for pointing me in the right direction)
then i have gates and cvs from the ansible, additional controls from korg nanokontrol + fh1, clocks from tempi, additional gates from zorlon cannon mk2
the nice thing is all cv\gate inputs are optimized to work with whatever chain or unit preset i load so it’s all under clever control.
the set is incredibly fun to play with.
it is accompanied by many other voices (hertz donut mk1 as bass, donut mk2 and dpo as additional voices, with ornament+crime as analog shift register driven by the MI grids + rené combo), filters, plague bearer, other stuff
