blast off to kicksville

Lots of stuff going on with this one, mix of software and hardware, on the ipad used beatmaker 2, patterning, argon synth, aufx:dub, and figure, on the hardware side used volca beats, volca keys, and teenage engineering po-12.  Thanks for listening!

really interesting sound, vaguely reminds me of the soundtrack for Metroid Prime. liking how those spoken vocal samples kind of shift the atmosphere of the piece.

How did you pull all that together?!  Nice combo.  That little PO-12 really holds hey

Great use of the PO12 along the Volca for extra kicks. I should catch up with my Beatbeaker sequencing one day.

So is basically all synths with iPad and all drums with hardware? did u sync them or sequence both boxes externally?

Interesting. Love the quite abrupt switches to the beats, adds a strange flow to the track in a good way.

Thanks for the comments, the drums were from patterning, volca beats, and po-12 and the synth was from iPad and volca keys, everything was recorded separately and arranged in beatmaker, I did recently purchase a lightning to midi converter so now I can sync the iPad to the hardware.

cool sound

That's a mighty kick drum!  The rhythm patterns are great as well--deep funk for a broken robot army. Badass.

Liking those cricket like tones and that warm bass sound.
