Hi Tom. Haven't logged in for well over a year! (have been lurking though) - Are you still using the octatrack's looper to record and overdub the Leploop? No, but the Leploop audio is running through the Octatrack and I'm processing it with the Octatrack filter and delay effects. - Do you edit anyth...

a LOT of people ask me about the very lightweight, strong modular case that I've been touring with for the past year.
They finally have a website- http://submodularsystems.com/

Highly recommended.

so great of you to disclose your gear and techniques. I was wondering whether you use some kind of compression or limiter when you play live with the modular such as here or as Trade. I never use any compression or limiting when playing live. I'm sure that what makes it sound so lively and dynamic ...

So do you practice the Octatrack ? Do you plan using it more than just as a looper ? The OT is a fantastic machine and it's hard not to like it, experimenting and manipulating sounds. I want to hear what you can do with it ! I find the Octatrack very frustrating, not at all intuitive or user friend...

This sounds so nice.
Are all tracks just the easel in one take? No overdubs?
Will have to pick up the vinyl.
And persuade myself not to pick up an easel...
Yes, all just easel + looper with one take.

@Phasor The case is a prototype that's not in production yet. Will give details when it's ready. 8-) @exportexport The whole piece is just live improvisation. I guess the raw, direct nature of that sounds more like my earlier productions. I'm really enjoying performing in that really raw improvised ...

@sellanraa
audio sample of modular pulse played by Octatrack and routed to headphone output then into Circadian Rhythms clock in.

@efexx
Octatrack is mainly functioning as a looper. Layering up the modular sequences with that.

RA Sessions: Surgeon - Modular techno, live and improvised

For a techno artist of his years and experience, Anthony Child caught the modular bug late. "I wasn't really that interested in it because it seemed like you had to spend thousands of pounds to make a very basic kind of 'clip-clop' sound, and that didn't really appeal to me," he once told XLR8R. But...

I'm SO happy with how this sounds on vinyl. :mygod: Where can we order that from? The E-M site doesn't have it (too late on preorders?) Ah, I didn't notice you were asking about vinyl. That does seem to have gone from the Editions Mego site. Still seems available from many other places eg. bleep, b...

Thanks for the kind words and interest. This is a very personal, special release for me. @exportexport I'm going to Maui again at the start of 2016 and will be sure to bring the Easel again. Perfect instrument for that environment. Who knows if part 2 will materialise? @misa I used a minirig speaker...

Hi Everyone, At the beginning of this year I recorded some music in a hut in the jungle on Maui using my Buchla Music Easel. Editions Mego are due to release it on double vinyl, CD and download on November 13th. I had the Easel playing through a speaker and then recorded that acoustically so that th...
