Grit

By Aletheia on August 16, 2020 1:24 pm

Quite a busy period again, but this week I bought a Korg Volca Modular. It's a fantastic little machine, the size of a toy but with incredible sonic potential for the money (as someone said, making the same device in Eurorack would cost 10 times). Still learning it, but today and yesterday I recorded four different tracks of fiddling with it creating a percussive sound, a drone, a "wailing FX something" and sort of a melody. Imported them in Live and added effects and created a structure. Being a West Coast and FM-inspired synth does create...grit. But it's very versatile and I'm sure I am going to have great fun with it.

All sounds there are from the Volca Modular? I love the textures you're getting there, like around 11:30, the percussion has a ring like effect.
