Hello This release was made entirely with a Gotharman Tiny LD granular synth workstation, running on a USB/9v powerbank, while I was sitting on trains and in hotel rooms, which happened a lot recently despite the pandemic.
Maybe you already know that I have kind of become addicted to Gotharman gear this year. I started with a regular Little deFormer 3, then got a blue SpazeDrum, an old DIY deMoon synth and finally added the Tiny LD to my arsenal as well, specifically for travel and camping. The Tiny LD runs the same operating system as the Little deFormer 3, but comes with less knobs and buttons and less expansion options. Thanks to the touch screen one can still work fine with it though and explore this crazy deep machine.
In case you haven’t heard of the LD3 and Tiny LD yet, they’re proper “workstations”, handmade in Denmark, which combine sampling, digital subtractive synthesis, and granular synthesis with digital and also real analog filters. They have powerful modulation and sequencing possibilities and loads of crazy effects. Their sound is often rough and digital by design, although the user-installable analog filter boards can add some nice smoothness to the sound too. My Tiny LD does not have an analog filter installed yet (but I have one ordered) and for this music release I also didn’t use any external samples and only internal resampling sometimes.
We also have a Little deFormer thread here on Lines:
Anyway, hope you enjoy the album! Let me know if you have any questions regarding this fantastic and utterly unique instrument
