spiders! (unofficial) [mp3, 6.7] why unofficial? caveat emptor... feel free to dance. this entire song is driven live from the qy70. there is a great deal of crossover between tracks and synths on this song. the qy70 provides all the drums and there is a lot of realtime parameter editing. for example the drums are pitched down by an octave at about 3:15. the qy70 also provides a sin wave style bass... why sweat the analogue when you want something that basic? the qy70 also provides a bowed pad sound that can be bent like me. all of this is mixed together via an onboard ampsim. the qy70 is midi'd via a 1 to N splitter to both a korg ms2000b and a novation bassstation. the ms2000b generates a phased droning and via the mod sequence (a sophisticated arp/parameter modeller) a burst of white noise is generated that can be heard fading in and out. the fade was done live. the basstation provides the 303'ness of the whole thing... it preludes change overs, occasionally confuses and then dances at the end. it is driven through a korg x911 analogue guitar synthesizer. distortion on max. this also provides me with 2 resonant lpf controls for 1 synth. finally the qy70 provides a xylophone sound... the sound of spiders... it was recorded in one take after many, many trials, realisations, confusion, problem solving etc. remixing would be hell as it is just one long sample. realtime control of this this song was MAJOR fun. i had to control the VCF on the bassstation & x911. i had to control the qy70 by switching patterns and muting accordingly. also the white noise filter on the ms2000b AND the mixing desk to bring in various instruments. back to the front © burnttoys.
