In this jam I’ve hooked up the Korg Volca Modular together with my AE Modular via the new VMBRIDGE module from tangible waves. This patch has both systems completely interconnected, with the complex oscillator from the Volca going through the Wasp filter of the AE and the sound of the AE going through the reverb of the Volca and many more cross patches. It really open up innumerable possibilities with these two devices.
I’ve received the Korg Volca Modular today and it’s so much fun to play with, I had to do a jam with the other gear. I also want to play more with the Volca FM and the Deluge … so that’s what I’m using in this video.
This is just a quick jam with the Volca FM, Deluge and Wavestate just to do something different for a change!
Join me for a day out on Mars as we will follow those smart little robots Spirit Rover and Curiosity as they discover the Red Planet. This Saturday Jam starts with an ambient wave sequence from the Korg Wavestate followed by a thumping beat from the AE Modular. The final part of the journey is supported by a song composed and performed on the Synthstrom Deluge.
I’m so happy that I again found the inspiration to combine these three amazing instruments into one coherent performance. It took a whole day to experiment, patch, tweak, practice, perform and finally mix and master the video. Even though I had to do it from good old Earth, it was a day well spent!
This track is now also on Bandcamp!
This album has a live recording of the set that I developed while performing a YouTube Live Stream on World Drone Day. If you don’t want to sit through 6 hours recording, then this album captures the essence of that night.
All sounds recorded live from AE Modular from tangible waves, Synthstrom Deluge, Korg Wavestate and Korg Volca FM.
It was a fun journey, fuelled by GAS and not knowing what to do and how to do it. But now I feel that with my latest acquisitions I have narrowed it down to the essentials: The AE Modular from tangible waves for for modular experimentation, the Deluge from Synthstrom Audible for all sequencing, sampling, looping and beats and now for all the digital and bombastically orchestral sounds – the brand new Korg Wavestate. For FM sounds I also have the Korg Volca FM, but currently I’m not sure when I will have time for it.
With these instruments I have now finally no more excuses. I can (theoretically) make any sound that I would ever want. The Deluge can play any sample and even single cycle waveforms. The Wavestate has a store of over 1000 different sounds that can be morphed, cycled and shaped.
NO MORE EXCUSES.
First jam with the AE Mini Modular and Korg Electribe 2 together. The electribe sends a MIDI sequence to the AE and the AE’s audio goes into the electribe’s input for processing using the built in effects.
To do this you need 2 parts on the Electribe. Part 1 is sending the MIDI notes to the AE on MIDI channel 1 and part 2 is set to Audio Input. To hear the sound of the AE you need to record a continuous note on part 2 for the whole pattern.
Detailed explanation at the end of the video.
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.
