I've been busy as hell the last couple weeks; multiple plates are spinning here at the Audio Damage Marketing And User Interface Design Facility; I was in dire need of a headcleaner, and thankfully, an excuse presented itself in the form of a new soundbank for the Analog Four by Richard Devine that Elektron put up this morning. After my day's trials and tribulations, I loaded that bitch up and sat down to noodle. When I looked at my watch again, 3 hours had gone by and I had a pretty reasonable jam.

This speaks volumes for both the A4 and Richard's programming skills; in my advanced years, it is incredibly hard to get zoned in like I used to, as there is very little in the music tech world that can excite my imagination at this point.

Anyhow, I thought my noodling was worth a bit of hard drive space, so I recorded a pass, and I figured while I was at it, might as well roll (virtual) film. The video above is the result. Analog Four, MeeBlip, Maschine, and modular. The Maschine and A4 are doing all the sequencing. I used Live 9 as a mixer and recording deck, but nothing is sequenced in it.

Wicked. My fillings hurt.

I thought you were going to ditch the Euro modular. Glad you didn't.

Awesome jam! You make a great salesman. Reminds me of Two Lone Swordsmen Tiny Reminders era.

Any chance of putting this up on the BandCamps? I'd love to put this in my radio show @ the end of the month.

I don't like to put the tracks up on BC until I have five. Drop me an email and I'll send you a link to it, though.

What exactly is that on top of the eurorack? Looks like that thing you posted on flickr. Tiny screen with some knobs... Running what software?

Nice jam.

Richard is a seriously talented dude. I've had the pleasure of having him do some presets on algorithms I've designed, and every time my first thought was, "It can do that?"

Call me crazy, but it looks like you might have one of these hooked up to that tiny screen via ribbon cable:
