machine funk: making daniel avery-style stepped, modulated riffs

Post by magnolia_unfurling » Fri Jan 03, 2020 2:46 pm

hello!

example track from 2013 album drone logic:

I am interested in learning about different ways to making tempo synced but changing LFO rate riffs. i'm sorry that i cannot be more clear in describing them

after a lot of research, i think that intellijel metropolis and atlantis combo would be a good place to start

or perhaps something Ableton > Expert Sleepers Silent Way (LFO generator) > Expert Sleepers ES-3 > VCF fcM or VCO in

here are some youtube videos of people making this style of music: voltage multistage modular is incredible

atlantis + metropolis

thank you!

All those examples sound like basic step sequences modulating the cutoff of a filter and the pitch of an oscillator. You can do that with any sequencer and a basic synth voice. - Or did I miss anything? Is it a certain groove you're after?

Metropolis is a good starting point. Combine it with anything really.

Sounds like Underworld's Rez :) All you need is a simple noise source and a sample & hold: send your clock to the S&H to get a new stepped value each time, send the CV to a resonant filter.

I love Daniel Avery and that album is one of my favs. I’ve found the SH-101 is the key to that sound... that particular resonance on the filter and the snappy envelopes, coupled with random LFO modulation. Record a few minutes of filter tweaking then loop a few bars of the best stuff and build a track around it!

The Atlantis is inspired by the 101 but I don’t find the filter as inspiring.... Jove is the closest I’ve heard in Euro modules, but getting envelopes as punchy as the 101 is difficult. I’m sure they’re out there, but I haven’t heard them.

God damn, Naïve response must be three times louder than rez...I couldn't imagine that then..:)

Nice music though, I like it. Especially that doubling of the main riff with a slightly different/modulated(?) sound.
