Beatober2021 #06 – Something

And now for something completely different. Today I just decided to do what I could with the pocket operators I have on hand… PO-32, PO-33, PO-35… and see what would come from it. I’ll definitely get back to the MPC Live and Eurorack, but just needed a change of pace for a bit. Probably willContinue reading “Beatober2021 #06 – Something”

Can you get multiple audio interfaces connected to your iPad?

The short answer to the question is NO, you cannot have multiple audio interfaces hooked up to your iPad. At least this is probably not going to work the way that you want. I was hoping to use the iPad to route audio around between the iPad, OP-Z, and OP-1, but alas, it’s not quiteContinue reading “Can you get multiple audio interfaces connected to your iPad?”

MPC Forums OP-1 Question…

Over at MPC Forums Danoc was asking a bit about the OP-1… here’s my response. It’s the Teenage Engineering OP-1. It has taken on the status of being an overpriced (released in 2011’ish at about $799 USD, today sells new for $1299 USD which was the latest price hike in 2019) piece of hipster musicContinue reading “MPC Forums OP-1 Question…”

MPC Forums Synth Pop Challenge – Systematic Noise

This is my third pass at a Synth Pop track. I did some cool stuff on the MPC Live, but it is definitively not Synth Pop. Something I will absolutely put together as a finished track, but both tracks strayed from the Synth Pop sound way too much, and I decided I’d give it oneContinue reading “MPC Forums Synth Pop Challenge – Systematic Noise”

Track – On the Road

This is a track I have been working on for about a week on the PO-33. All the sampling and mixing was done within the little box. I continue to like this little device because it really forces you to think about a potentially crippling amount of sampling time and a very real four noteContinue reading “Track – On the Road”

Track – STBB #695 – Running Forever

This track comes courtesy of STBB Forever BB #695, there were two tracks to chop up. The rules were effectively to chop whatever, use your own drums, no external instruments, and you needed to drop a change up in the track. I’m interested to see what others do this week. Similar to the MPC BBContinue reading “Track – STBB #695 – Running Forever”

Track – MPC 283 – Road to Mama

This picture comes courtesy of Photoshop Camera on the iPhone with one of the goofy filters. I was out RV’ing with my family and my parents for a couple of days over the weekend… which held me up from having time to pull together more of a track. I was split on the track thisContinue reading “Track – MPC 283 – Road to Mama”

Track – Sounds of the Old Reliquary

Boy, I thought I had posted this track a while ago… heck I made it nearly a year ago, but here it is. I put this track together in about an hour, and it was recorded on the Teenage Engineering OP-1 in conjunction with a Bastl Instruments Micro Granny. I spent a lot of timeContinue reading “Track – Sounds of the Old Reliquary”

Older Firmware OP-1 Patches

I was looking around for something completely different, and happened to stumble upon this Reddit thread [DOWNLOAD] OP-1 Patches (op1_14203) which was posted to the OP-1 sub forum for users that wanted access to the older patches provided by the older OP-1 firmware. The direct link is currently still available to a google drive folderContinue reading “Older Firmware OP-1 Patches”

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”
