FM Drive - volca Synthwave Jam

By Aisjam on January 19, 2020 7:02 am

Hello again, so I had a bit of variety of time to work with this time and falling into the lines of vibrant neon lines and 80s themes. I wanted to build a Synthwave track this time. Something bright and happy.

First was to make some awesome chords to accompany the classic linndrum samples. Spent the afternoon noodling with Arturia’s CS-80 vst creating some nice chord progressions. These were recorded and programmed into the Volca sample as the backing track. Next was the Volca FM which programmed from Dexed.

Since the framework was set by the chord structure. It was an easy to make the bass/chord/arp melody with the FM and Bass. I noodled with the patterns to learn and then I hit the big red record button.
