@fourhoarder @glia that’s rad you like that track, bc it’s done unlike the other ones on the album.
since we’re all just overgrown nerds up in here, i’ll break down how i did it, since there’s actually an insta of the beginnings of it. it was my first go at the roland tb03… but i hooked it up through the cocoquantus and captured a couple stereo runs of the 03 in coco’s left and right buffers.
then, you lock the buffers with the black buttons. this is where the fun begins. coco has 4 dolby NR switches, where you can filter the (2)inputs or (2)outputs to your liking. it took me years to understand practical applications of this, stupidly, bc documentation on ciat lonbarde before places like patch point wrote manuals was…esoteric scroll hunting through peter’s website(s).
but, once buffers are locked, you won’t lose the loops coco has, but also the dolby switches on the two stereo outputs can be switched to “down” position where now the new tb03 patterns coming in will side chain the old ones in the buffer (non destructively) like an sp303’s vinylsim effect on a quiet synth next to loud drums, you get hella pumping, which can be heard in the track.
at this point i had actually taken an instagram video of where i was, you hear the side chaining coming slowly:
from there, i just looped what worked in ableton and wrote drums to it. lots of drum buss and glue compressors as per usual
anyways, thanks so much for peeping my stuff, everyone. we all just make it for ourselves at this point, unless your live streaming (which god i need to do more of), but when the audience comes together with the many hours we spend alone, it’s quite a magical experience. so thanks for having it with me!
also thanks for reading my nerd ramble lol.
