Got some new stuff to solder from Noisio from Dresden!

Here you can listen to my first recording - a jam -  with 3 ATPC (ATiny Punk Console) by Noisio last October during my stay at Circuit Control in Dresden, Germany. At the end of the tune (starting 3:27) I added some notes with the LinPlug soft synth "Spectral".

Used sounds from left to right: Fail_U_03, Sweep_02 and ATPC_01. Left two ATPCs are first generation, the right one is the actual release by Noisio/Steffen Koritsch.

This weekend I jammed around with a fully automatable 8 step sequencer synth by Curetronic from Dresden. I soldered the synth 4 years ago at Circuit Control in Dresden. All sounds come from the synth and later I arranged parts of this endless jam in Ableton Live. The result is a little tekkno track titled "Curetronica".

Matthias from Curetronic presented a new version of the synth called FON with some upgrades.

drkmbnt: "Jammin' Around"

Some days ago I jammed around with 3 x ATiny Punk Console, 1 x Grains, 1 x Flip Floater Delay and 1 x Dude. In one hand I had the smartphone and with the other hand I twisted the knobs.

Pretty wild, but musically with a very nice result. Play it loud.

drkmbnt "Grains"

December 17, 2018 - Reading time: ~1 minute

"Grains" is a piece done with the GRAINS tool designed by Jan from Ginko Syntese.

For "Grains" I only used one code by Falafular: "falafel-raps-changed-v2 PCB v2". You can hear the rap vocals within the piece.
All noises and klicks and kicks have been produced in a long jam with the same code. At the end I edited the highlights and mixed the piece you can hear. Without effects, timestreching or other granular stuff. Only Grains and editing.

As CV in triggers I used 2 ATPC.
