Live performance with the Ableton Push 2!  My monitors are still on the fritz, so this was mixed with one speaker / headphones.  This piece was an exercise in trying to figure out how to emulate at Roland TB-303 Bass Line synthesizer.  I still have a lot to learn, but it was pretty fun!  Moving into that acid squelch territory was super fun, and to dial that in with a knob was great.  Track title is an allusion to T. B. wink


In other news, I am getting both an Elektron Digitakt and Digitone in the next month!  I am SO excited.  I had planned on getting the Digitone a few months ago, but then a friend (CCDM) mentioned that he was selling his and is giving me a great price, so I couldn't refuse.  HARDWARE SYNTHS, HERE I COME.


ALSO: I have a show coming up!  9/1/18 at Landmark Lanes! https://www.landmarklanes.com/moon-room/

Great. I shudder to think what you'll do with that hardware!

Love the huge sound of this and the driving beat really gives it a sense of motion.  Good luck at your show!  I would go if it weren't so very far away from me.

Live performance!! This is seriously cool heart That venue looks fun as hell, and it looks like you're going b2b with Ipaghost, that's amazing haha. Good luck to both of you! I'd happily show up were it not for the damn Atlantic Ocean, what a buzzkill.

Excellent piece of freewheeling acid madness... love it!

You nailed TB-303 sound. Super fun house track! I like where you take in the last third. Some cool live filtering effects.

Damn, Great TB, rhythms an build up

Great bassline here, Orangedrink... Every approach to the TB emulation sounds different, and I guess that's the whole point of it. You nailed those stacatto patterns.

Hope to be catching up on your repertoire soon. Best of luck with your gigs!!!

old school sound, in the best way, can't help but move to this one, great job!

The name of this track alone is fire, much less how fire the track is. That bass tho
