Inspired by the awesome performance last Saturday by my friend Scott of Abre Ojos, I tried my hand at composing an ambient drone track using just the AE Mini and his friends the Volca Sample and my brand new Volca FM!
This is an experiment with square waves and logic gates. Two oscillators are pitched slightly apart and sending square waves to a logic gate which sends out 3 different output signals: NAND, AND and XOR. Those are then going to various filters and delays before being passed through the MultiFX module.
More information available in the video description.
The AE Mini Modular is the perfect companion for the Zoom MS70-CDR multi effect pedal. After the last dancey track, I felt like making a dreamy track with just the Mini.
This is a track that uses all the gear that I have installed in my “studio”. For the first time, the big AE Modular and the AE Mini Modular are playing together. I find that the AE Mini works great together with the Korg SQ1 and the Zoom MS70-CDR multi effects pedal.
I just got the Zoom MS-70CDR multi effects pedal and just trying a few patches. This patch uses the flanger going into a nice reverb. Together with the AE Mini Modular and my trusty Volca Sample it is quite a good combo.
I’ve discovered how to connect a super cheap USB audio splitter with my iPad and had to try it out on my AE Minisynth. The result made it only to Instagram, but it’s a nice little diddle.
In this video I am showing how to combine the AE Mini Synth with two little play mates – the Korg SQ-1 sequencer and Korg Volca Sample. You can read more information in the video description on Youtube.
I found some radio waves hidden in the SV Filter and just went exploring from there. Two OSCs mixed together, going through the SV Filter with some Lopag “drums”.

This is an experiment with the self resonating Nyle filter going through the Wasp low pass filter for rumbling bass and then squelching craziness. Another voice explores the CV and IN1 of the Delay module with some random voltages changing the delay time in interesting ways and a kind of drone adding substance to the delayed ping.
All recorded into Audacity on my PC and then fused with the flyover video using the good old Windows Movie Maker.
