Any recordings without the visuals? Would've loved to have had a clearer look at what was going on

Hi Versipellis, thanks for watching !

I've just uploaded a visual-less version here :

Sorry for the very low cam quality...
I will try to upgrade my cam for the next liveset.

Cheers

Great stuff! Any chance you could walk us through what your doing? (ie what modules are making the various sounds, what's sequencing them and how the rhythms are being made. Would be very helpful to a noob like me who's just trying to get a grip on how this stuff works)

Thx okiikahuna!
Sorry for this late answer... I was away for a trip.

For this live session I mostly used the following stuff:

2 VCO: malekko richter oscillator & WMD spectrum.

2 filters: wmd pole zero & mmf.

2 EG from tiptop audio.

For drums: mutants hihats, ssf entity BD, thonk prok clap, and noise sources.

For sequencing that I used: vpme euclideen circles, mutable instruments marbles, wmd arpitecht and a turing machine.

I used a radio music for the sampled vocals.

Sometime i used the Minitaur for the bass and the A4 for the chords.

Effects and main clock by the A4 too.

At the end I used a MSCL for a bit of compression....

Hi there,

Here is my last eurorack video. Another fully improvised modular synth techno session.
All melodies are built on the fly using a combinaison of a WMD Arpitecht, a Turing Machine and a Marbles from Mutables Instruments.

No programation with sofisticated sequencers involved.
No computer involved.

Advices and critics are welcome.

Just watched the first one, and have started the second. I'm enjoying them both.

Good stuff man, would like to hear about your approach/setup if you're willing to share? Always interested to hear how others are doing it (and I see you have a Octatrack as well, do you do any live looping with it?).

Cheers and nice work!

Thank you too Ypsi Kid! About the approach of this setup, m'y project is to end with a 12U rack optimized for live techno improvisation and without any computer. (Look Mum no computer!)

For this last video you can find details of the rack on my modulargrid account :
https://www.modulargrid.net/e/users/view/131062

Concerning the Elektron Gear, in fact it is an A4 and here it is just used as main clock source and Midi synch to the Space reverb.

Cheers!
