busted

By george bowles on June 26, 2016 2:08 am

i bought a portable mackie mixer last weekend at a garage sale and so i decided to do some live performance with it using my korg volca beats and my korg poly 800 running through it. then i added another layer of clean p-bass through the mixer as a last touch to add another dimension to it. here's the resulting performance.

This is live? Amazing.

Oh man this sounds like a warped vinyl.  So melty and delicious.

It has a skittering chaotic energy and some nice scuzzy sounds.  I also like the way it morphs into a lot of different shapes.

yeah ended up with some nice textures! probably should have edited it down shorter.

pretty much except for the one-take overdubbed bass. i did so some editing to it because it was like a 17 minute jam originally. then added the bass track. the first round was live drum machine going through some fx pedals and korg poly 800 on the HOLD setting. i did so some eq tweaking too as part of the sound of this... if you listen to the drums they keep morphing on the eq and panning a bit. about halfway through i started fucking around with offsetting the channels in postproduction as part of my editing methodology. this was also done before the bass guitar track overdub.

that perhaps is the delay pedal i'm using set on one of the weirder delay setting, or it is part of the artifact created by offsetting the channels about halfway in.

i like the weird drawn out scuzzy hihat that i came up with from the volca the most... part of this was derived from equing its high end pretty extremely. chaotic energy of improvisation mostly but some of the post-production and other random effect also created some of the morphing on stuttering.

Thanks for your input and for checking it out everyone! I can't believe i found a 14 channel mackie mixer for $20!!! holy shit lucky as hell.

aha!  the channel offset.  brilliant.  and then when you increase the tempo, I just about fell out of my chair.

Great sounds and performance! I particularly like the first half, but it's softly dirty goodness all the way through!

Excellent work!
Lovely Poly800 smile

I really like the lo-fi bass and synth warmth.  The pan mix later in the track is a nice surprise.  The bass was a worthy addition!
