Just fooling around with the SLEW/EDGE module I discovered that I can get a squelchy bass going. Not sure if this is Acid? I also played with the SEQ16 by patching the reset into different pattern lengths.
This time an experiment in rhythm after all the ambient tracks of the last few weeks.
One LFO is the central clock which feeds the TRIQ164 and SEQ16. Channel 4 on TRIQ164 sends a clock to TOPOGRAF which in turn drives the KICK and DRUM 010. TRIQ164 Channels 1 sends triggers to LOPAG for another percussion voice and channels 2 and 3 go to envelopes that modulate the bass and lead sounds.
The WASP filter’s cutoff CV is modulated by the CV out from the SEQ16. This gives the lead sound some rhythmic variation even though it’s playing the same note for 4 bars.
The bass line is just the OSC1’s sub oscillator going through the NYLE filter.
This is an ambient track with some Topograf rhythms and keystep noodling. The bulk of the sound is created by the 2OSC module with the second oscillator hard synced to the first. Movement is created by sending this through the wavefolder with LFO modulation of the shape. Also modulating the filters with LFOs and even using the MM Divider to create rhythmic sub oscillations.
In December 2019 large parts of NSW and other states in Australia are burning. Thousands of hectares of National Forest have been reduced to ash, many homes have been destroyed and lives are lost. A huge cloud of smoke hangs above most of the state and Sydney looks like a scene from Bladerunner. This track is inspired by this tragedy.
