LoFi Buttery Piano – Akai MPC X Program

Let me start by explaining the patch a bit, and how I got here… Life started off on the Akai S950, using piano multi samples from G1 through C4, every sixth note… My goal was to get some of that S950 12-bit grit and artifacts, but still keep it relatively free of the crazy stretchingContinue reading “LoFi Buttery Piano – Akai MPC X Program”

Who’s Home – PO-33 #Jamuary

I’m not really happy with this, but I also had a bit of a gap for #Jamuary. Guess it was too much to think I’d put something together every day. On the other hand, it is freeing to have just taken a few takes, and going for the best of them so that I canContinue reading “Who’s Home – PO-33 #Jamuary”

Heavens Gate – OP-1 Track

I’ve had this audio sitting on my OP-1 for a while (okay two weeks), and while I’d like to have sampled and chopped it up some, I figured I’d send it out into the universe. I had sent the loops over to my father and brother in-law to see if either of them wanted toContinue reading “Heavens Gate – OP-1 Track”

No More Technology – #Jamuary

No eurorack modules were harmed in the making of this video. The PO-32 (Tonic) makes up the drums, the PO-35 (Voice) is how I got the “No More Technology” hook, and… the lead/bass came from some Eurorack mess. I recorded all of this into Ableton Live for some FX processing. All of this was recordedContinue reading “No More Technology – #Jamuary”

Its my Jam – PO-33 Track

The image is courtesy of a road trip I did with my family from the East Coast out to Montana. On the way back we stopped at an amethyst mine, and I got some really cool pictures of some older beat up vehicles. There was some really cool stuff going on here, and we gotContinue reading “Its my Jam – PO-33 Track”

Glass Mythology – PO-33 Track

The image comes courtesy of a business trip to Bangalore. The pool with the blue lights looked amazing so I had to take a picture. I’ll have to keep an eye out for more of these eye catching images… and maybe I can do a better job getting a “live” photo on my phone… orContinue reading “Glass Mythology – PO-33 Track”

Afternoon Breeze – PO-33 Track

The image is from my daughter. While we took a trip out to Montana she kept borrowing my phone to take strange pictures with odd filters. This is one of many featuring one of our dogs. It looked intense enough to be a good track image. Enjoy the image of my dog slowly zooming inContinue reading “Afternoon Breeze – PO-33 Track”

Winter Happiness – PO-33 Track

I used some Washi tape to label the write and record on the PO-33 on the case. I keep pushing the wrong one and deleting samples or otherwise overwriting stuff I don’t want to. I’m just not keeping the two clear in my mind. Also, it doesn’t help that the write button with the whiteContinue reading “Winter Happiness – PO-33 Track”

My Tiny House – PO 33 Track

I had intended in jamming out on the MPC today, but I ended up grabbing the PO 33 again… Producing another small track. Seriously folks, I am surprised at how much big sound can come out of such a small device! This is maybe 30 minutes worth of playing around max. If you want aContinue reading “My Tiny House – PO 33 Track”

Early Morning Chat – PO-33 Track

Although I’ve been happily selling off gear, I’ve still got the Teenage Engineering Pocket Operators I picked up a while back. I was feeling like putting something together super fast, and while I was planning on recording off samples, creating drum programs, all that fun stuff… I also didn’t want to spend too much time.Continue reading “Early Morning Chat – PO-33 Track”
