Jamming with all the new modules. I really love the SPRING REVERB for the atmosphere it can create when coupled with a DELAY … it’s a great ambient backdrop. The SEQ16 is vastly improved when followed by the QUANTIZER. Finally real notes that sound good together! There is a lot of modulation in this piece, things fade in and out and filter cutoff frequencies are controlled by LFOs and ENVs. It just shows that it’s incredibly useful to have a bunch of the those and VCAs to be able to do that.
This is a jam with the Wavefolder and all 5 filters in my system. The AE Modular can really create huge sounds and this jam shows this. After the jam I’m explaining how this patch works and also how the Wavefolder affects a triangle wave.
This Saturday the 30th May 2020 is World Drone Day and I will be streaming live from my little studio in Bega, Australia!
This will be my first ever attempt at streaming, so let’s see how it will all work out!

Hopefully there will be other people from the AE Modular Forum that will participate, see the post below for more info:
An ambient drone using 5 oscillators, 1 sub oscillator and the Solina String Machine of the AE Modular system from tangible waves. Using various VCAs, filters and envelopes it’s possible to create changing and varied soundscapes that always on the edge of the resonant filters which adds a special ring to it.
This is a long and relaxing ambient piece which I’ve made mostly for myself … to quieten down a bit in this stressful and uncertain time. All sounds from the AE Modular system, Solina, Grains and some filters. Slowly breathing in and out.
Just a little diddle while fiddling with the Slew.
This is my very first patch with the Synthstrom Deluge. For now all sounds are coming from the Deluge, but I’m planning to make more tracks where it sequences my other synths.
I started practicing for a video about the “first basic patch” and then it got out of hand quickly 😉 The Electribe adds the nice driving wubb wubb bassline, everything else is the AE Modular. Usually I record video and sound straight into my phone, but since the latest Android update that function is not working anymore. So I’ve recorded the audio into Reaper and the video on my phone and then had to stitch it together. It works, but is way more hassle than I liked.
This is my first music track in 2020. I had a late start because I just couldn’t concentrate to make music. Since beginning of the year we were threatened and surrounded by the largest bushfires that Australia has ever experienced. My town was luckily spared, but the fires were close to the North, West and South and we had to prepare to evacuate twice. Then there was the thick smoke that turned day into night and made it hard to breathe. Overall a very stressful start of the year. And we are the lucky ones. There are many families close by that have lost their homes. Over 400 houses destroyed within a 50 km radius from us. It’s a complete catastrophe. But we had a bit of rain and the air is clearer. The army is here helping the firies and they seem to get a handle on the fires, even though they won’t be able to put them out. So this is my first track to break the spell and to start making videos again! All sounds from the Electribe 2 synth version.
