My Doepfer Quad AD / BBD !demos"

Post by wetterberg » Wed Aug 06, 2008 6:51 pm

http://covops.org/mp3s/wetterberg_-_insoluble.mp3
A one-take performance with a tiny 2u Doepfer rig.
- first of all: Loving that beat! cool effect of tweaking the bbd @ 0:35 and 0:48. Goes AWOL @ 1:20. Drops back into BBD madness @ 2:40.

http://covops.org/mp3s/wetterberg_a-143 ... -106-1.mp3
- this one shows some of the pretty damned insane rhythms you can get out of the Quad AD modulating a self-resonating filter. No other modules used.

http://covops.org/mp3s/wetterberg_-_insoluble.mp3
- Taking it a bit further, this is a minimal noise-kick thing: quad AD, lpf, the 116 WP and my beloved BBD. One take.

http://covops.org/mp3s/bbd_myself.mp3
- Again the Quad AD - this time modulating the 2048-stage BBD. Nothing else.

http://covops.org/mp3s/wetterberg_-_the ... ersion.wav
- the first track I did with my modular. BIG. Multitracked, and very big.

http://covops.org/mp3s/wetterberg_-_wall_of_bits.mp3
viewtopic.php?p=14751#14751
- new layered piece. No external effects, just 4! modules; 143-1, 110, 106-1 and 188-1(2048 stages)

Sorry for any redundandy here.
gah, tired.

Andreas.

Parts of the noise-kick thing sounds like the worst (best) grinding AD loops I got out of ARP Odyssey II that I once borrowed. Makes me realize how sick sounding that thing was and how much I want one (or an ARP 2600 - one can dream).

Nice job man! You got me contemplating about the Quad AD once again. If only I had the space...

thanks man - you know, it's sad that we all think in HPs like that. They should fucking be giving away the racks, not ripping us off with them. :bang:

*someday* this'll change.

Well, I still got enough material for another 6U DIY box (minus psu + bus boards) around, I'm just somehow reluctant to build it at the moment. I don't have too much space here, and I want to spare the modular madness for a bit and just focus on building a little 6U system...

If a company where to start up a AFFORDABLE option for Euro Racks they would CLEAN UP!!! This has crossed my mind MANY MANY times... If I could get a working business plan for this, I would take it on.

So many times I have said this, maybe I should just get off my ass and do it... Seriously, why the fuck don't I?..

Yeah, that's true - the demand would pretty surely be huge because practically everyone is going about how euro might be fun IF there were affordable cases available. I've been toying with the idea of starting to sell those too, but I lack the resources and I think someone US/Canada-based would be better suited for the job since I think the market would be even bigger there and the current euro vs dollar value situation would probably hurt sales from EU to USA.

Something similar to what Blacet offers would probably be ideal - a no-frills 3U rack cage with vector rails, a boxed easy-to-connect quality linear power supply and some power distribution boards. Just add modules and a rack case around the cage, and you're set.

I don't want to thread steal... So I'll make a new thread, but I would want to focus on portability and affordability... Hell maybe even for you frac dudes.

the frac rack is 79 new from blacet. that's not counting shipping and CA sales tax.

i'm now a little more upset because upon pulling the price for this response i see that blacet is no longer offering discounts. it used to be that for every increment of 200 purchases you'd save. topping out at $600 orders and above. i think the lowest it got was $67 or $65

anyways. i try my best to always get these used. i've bought em for as low as 50. still i'd rather spend less like lower than 40 if possible. i know i'm coming off cheap but i'd rather put that money into modules. i'd almost rather just get a nice woodcase built that i could drill the modules directly into but i don't want a woodcase. i like my rock solid earthquake proof skb's especially for mobility purposes as i'm not really settled down yet.

All such discussion should move there to allow more praise of these awesome samples!

I can't wait to try this stuff out.

Thanks! Glad you liked it :)

I'm disappearing into DIY land now, but there should be more of these forthcoming.

:goldfish: Thank you!
I'm very pleased with how the sounds are coming along, and especially the fact that these sounds are all very VERY basic in terms of modules being used and so forth, an "almost inexpensive modular", if you will. Gives me great hope for the next iterations of the system, which will be closer to "actual-sized" than this cruddy mdf box of evil.

cheers.
