03% Battery Remaining

By scottux on January 31, 2016 8:31 pm

Equipment: Teenage Engineering PO-20 Arcade, Teenage Engineering PO-28 Robot, Teenage Engineering OP-1
Before composing: I knew I didn't have much time again this week, so I had been toying with my new Pocket Operators and decided to make a pitched down slow-mo version of the progression I'd been playing around with most of the week on the bus or toilet.
After completing: I had originally composed a version that included heavy compression and a powerful drum and some heavy builds, but I couldn't get the actual chiptune-ness to build like I wanted, so another time I suppose. This version is basically just using the OP-1 as a mixer and for the spring reverb.

With the drums, I felt it was a lot bigger, but I couldn't get it right before obligations kept me from my gear. Might put the drum version up on soundcloud.

Yeah, I should go back and finish up that version and Soundcloud it.

Glad to see those PO boxes (or should I say "cards") put to good use. I myself "borrowed" the PO12 this week.

Would be great to hear the elaborated version

awesome!!! And I know it sounds far-fetched, but I even hear echoes of The Beatles in there.

that progression is very strong though and works well on the equipment you're using. good work

I love these little guys. I've got five now, the Arcade, the Robot, the Office, the Rhythm, and the Sub. Just missing the Factory at this point.
