A Trip Through The Haunted House

By BTS on October 16, 2016 7:15 pm

For October’s Monthly Acid Pattern, I took inspiration from the recent Techno Design Video by Point Blank Music School (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kXwA-BRoYQs).

So, I decided to sample my Volca Bass, Volca Sample and Volca FM into Reason. The Volca Beats were sampled into Redrum, which was run into a Decimort and the CV generated by two Euclids. The Volca FM and Sample were recorded into a Kong, which was run into a Beat Crush; the Euclid’s from the Redrum were CV Split into the Korg. A pulsing bass element came from sampling a Volca Bass into a NN-XT, which was then run into a Formant Combinator with CV generated by a Matrix.

I then added an ABL3 to program the October MAP pattern. I also added a couple of  Atmospheric Combinators with CV generated by a PCV, a CV Splitter, a Randrome and a Pulsar.

The Mixer’s Insert FX consisted of an Audiomatic and a RV7000 Mk2. After mixing and arranging the track live, I EQd the track with the Reason Mixer.

The Master FX consisted of an Audiomatic into a MClass EQ, a MClass Compressor, an Ozone and finally a MClass Stereo Imager.

Great ostinato!  Very chippy!  And I like the hypnotic modulations.  Very nice piece.

You really managed to turn the Volca Bass into a convincing 303 acid box smile

I think the 303 line is ABL3.  It's available as a VST or Rack Extension. Great 303 emulator.  But I have heard some great 303 type sounds come out of Volca Bass's.
