Posts are rare these days, but rest assure there are a lot of things cooking in the Glitzerstrahl labs. The modular synth is taking up a lot of time, but most of it is pure explorations and learnings at this point. Not so much actual music being made.
I’m slowly working on the next Cumulus track, which I plan to pull in a more melodic direction, but I want to use it as an excuse to experiment with a workflow that utilizes the Maschine as well as Live in the setup. Therefor it’s taking longer than usual.
Keep tuning in, there’s lots more coming!
In the meantime, tell me what you are working on! Any modular / analog stuff happening?
After about 6 months of collecting ideas and materials, sequencing and recording, I’ve put together a follow up to the Farhbahn EP, named (surprise surprise) Fahrbahn II :). It’s available at Bandcamp via the link below. Please download and check it out :).
This is a track made entirely with my modular setup. There is no external sequencing or MIDI involved, but some effects like reverb and echo were added through Ableton during recording. Other effects, like the distortion you hear on some sounds, came from patched in guitar stomp boxes.
Each ‘layer’ was recorded separately with a XAOC Moskwa sequencer providing the clock.
I originally reported on the Live 9 and Push being available for preorder at major retailers back in December. Now it looks like Guitar Center and Musicians Friend has updated their expected availability / shipping date for the Ableton Push controller and Ableton Live 9.
