Getting Started – DRONE38 and DRONX

This is an overview of the two new drone modules for the AE Modular Synth from tangible waves. I’m presenting a short demonstration of the sound in the beginning and then will explain the functions of each module in detail. Towards the end there are some thoughts on how to approach making music with these modules.

Jamuary 2021 #2 – A Meditative Jam

This jam is much slower and almost follows a very slow breath – in – out – in – out. The finale somehow became strangely ominous, but as I don’t really know where inspiration leads me, I just have to follow.

Again the thumbnail was made by my son Robin, who’s getting really good at this!

This recording is also the first made with my new audio interface, the Behringer UMC-404 HD and. oh boy, does this make a difference! No more hissing noises! Clean sound, manageable levels, I should have bought this ages ago! This time I’ve also recorded it straight into Reaper and applied some light compression to the mix.

Interview with Tim Held at Podular Modcast

Tim Held has established quite a following with his weekly podcasts which he aptly named Podular Modcast. He approached Robert and I at Synthbooth and asked us whether we would like to do an interview with him to which we gladly agreed. This was again one of those 2020 Zoom interviews over 3 continents: Tim in Seattle USA, Robert in Germany near Munich and I in Australia. It was a very relaxed interview with Tim being a fantastic host and interviewer.

At the end he posed a patch challenge for the words “PURE DAWN” to which I obliged mainly because coincidentally I had recorded a good 30 minutes of birdsong one morning just a few days prior and I always wanted to use this in a song anyway. So my track at the end of the interview features our early morning bird concert.

I hope when you listen to this interview you will enjoy it as much as I did while being “on the show”. Thanks to Tim for doing this and thanks again to Robert for the creation of this fabulous synthesizer system.
