SeQueakaBeat, BugMod Jam audio recording.

Post by dan_p » Mon Aug 01, 2011 6:22 am

Been a while since I've done anything due to too much work.

Anyway, had a jam with a fun patch I made and did a quick recording.
Its all 100% BugModular and just a little reverb from a Cathedral pedal. No editing or computer tomfoolery other than fades at the start and end.

Just did a single take and there are a few mistakes but it doesn't matter realy, just for a laugh and all that.

The patch is pretty big so no complete notes but there was a neat trick I found for the snare. I made the hats with the Weevil through a high pass filter to a VCA (VCA opened with ENV1. To get the snare I patched the gate (reversed through a mixer) that I wanted the snare on to the Cutoff CV of the High pass (it just lowers the cut off to make a snare sound instead of a high hat sound). I think it worked a treat?
Oh you got a Nickel, I got a Dime,
I'd like to get to know you but I haven't got the time,
You got to walk like a mannequin, roll like a tyre,
Act on reaction dodge the big spud fryer

Nice!

If you don't want to tie up a Weevil doing hihats you can also use a Utility VCO square out into Divisions and the mix the output to a hpf (/2,/3,/5,/7 for example) works pretty well :tu:

That was great! I think this kind of track would be a great candidate for the potential BugModRec vinyl comp. :yay:

Nice one Dan, good tip on the hat and snare patch along with Daren's suggestion for the hats means I'll have a crack at this dance thing ;)
I'm looking for nothing at this moment in time

Good for me to pick up tips like Daren's Divisions -- just what I need to be incorporating for a live show next weekend.

Thanks all :guinness:

I realy enjoyed this patch and it was great to get more than 10 minutes with the system for a change. I should of spent more time trying to record a decent take but I think you get the idea of it.

Don't know if anyone else finds this but, I recorded this patch the morning after I built it. To my ears it sounded the same in the morning when I switched it on as it did in the evening, I find this with the BugMod. I can't remember the Euro system doing that, it allways sounded different. Or is it just my imagination?

BugBrand FTW :sb:
