Syncing your MPC Live mk2/X/One to Eurorak Pamela’s New Workout

This video shows how to sync up your MPC Live mk2/X/One over CV gates to a Pamela’s New Workout. Honestly, I’m not too worried about the variance in the BPM that shows up at higher levels. I’ve monitored the gates being sent over CV and have seen that it is not dropping gates, so overContinue reading “Syncing your MPC Live mk2/X/One to Eurorak Pamela’s New Workout”

NT-Modular-Be Spoke Accordian

Was kind of hunting around for a bit of an accordion sound, and figured this was close enough to a synthetic sound as I was going to make with the modular case today.

Akai MPC Live/X/One Channel Level 0db Digital Distortion

#jamcember – I Am A Cheap Date

Is it time to start the count down? Well this one was a bit more of a pain to get started. I have had a mild headache most of the day and just didn’t want to put any energy into making a track… however the show must go on! The picture is courtesy of myContinue reading “#jamcember – I Am A Cheap Date”
