This drone got out of hand. It started with two oscillators and 4 filters then some modulation of the filters, some delay and then a bass, some percussion and playing some notes on the keyboard with real time modulation of delay time via the mod strip.
I was inspired by Matt Wand’s jam at Superbooth and have been thinking about the little case for a while since. I think it is perfect for really getting to know one or two modules really deeply without being distracted by all the other modules in a bigger rack.
Here are my first two videos I made with this rack and I’m sure more will follow in the next few weeks.
Matt came prepared to Superbooth and smuggled this tiny system onto the premises. As you can see there is less than a handful of modules in there, but they pack a big punch as you will hear in this video.
I interviewed John from Wonkystuff and he demonstrated his new MIDI system complete with micromodules.
In this interview at Superbooth ’23, Toms aka KYAA is presenting his new case design for the AE Modular system. Not only is it super sturdy as it’s made of aluminium, but it also features an ingenious quick swap design where you can easily plug modules in and out of the case.
Here I’m demonstrating the following micro modules which are great for shaping, distorting, destroying or otherwise mangling your sound: µTONE, µDISTORTION, µ2SIGAMP, µBITCRUSH, µSUBOCTAVE. The micro module system has been released mid last year and has already revolutionised the AE Modular system by tangible waves by making the modules even smaller!
In May 2022 I visited Robert and the tangible waves team at their headquarters in Murnau in Bavaria. After a series of interviews and videos about the production workflow, Robert showed me his little sanctuary, a former chapel within the building which he has rented to play music and to get inspiration for his module creations. Here, Robert is showing us his process of creating a performance from scratch in the style of Klaus Schulze who had just died a few days before we recorded this video.
It is my pleasure to announce the release of the 4th AEther Waves album made by the amazing AE Modular community!
Just like the volumes before, this album is filled with a surprising variety of styles and moods.
Please think of purchasing it so that we can support Musicians without Borders and the awesome work they are doing by bringing peace to war torn regions with the power of MUSIC!
The Canberra Synth Facebook Group invited me to perform at the newly organised monthly “Evening of Electronica” so I went and did “patch from scratch” where I created a patch on the fly while explaining what I’m doing and why.
Overall, I think it was well received and I’m looking forward to performing there again next year, hopefully.
