This is monday but feels more like wednesday due to the film shoot.  I got off set around 7pm and hit wonderful hour and a half long traffic home.



Funny thing about this creative thing was that I spent most of the night putting together the video for Day 266 / Runners & Chasers but I didn’t want to post it as my creative thing.  So, I opened up Arturia’s Moog Modular V and made a quickie patch.



Moog Modular V is a software emulator of the classic Moog Modular synthesizer.  Before I had any kind of physical or tangible analog synth in front of me, I had this.  It’s a pretty great alternative for those interested in learning the methods of patch-making.  It sounds sweet too.  It’s a very realistic emulator of that analog warmth that everyone hopes for.



I basically created a quick patch using three oscillators going through a multi-mode filter with the pitch being controlled by the sequencer on top.  I recorded the sequence multiple times on multiple tracks in Ableton.  I over-dubbed the sequence at higher pitches and different rates and recorded that to another track.  Then I just messed around with a bunch of stuff, changed the sequence, adjusted the envelopes, added delay, added a some bode frequency shifting.



Ultimately I recorded myself playing all of these loops in sequence and then cut it down to a more listenable running time.  Lastly, I sequenced a simple beat using drum samples I’d created a long time ago using my real modular.



I hope you enjoy.  You can play the results below.  Just a simple synth tune.

    I love this song. We gotta jam soon. And then we have to form a band. And then we have to take over the world.

    Really? I felt so self-consciousness about this track. I didn’t really feel like I was doing anything special on it but your comments have made me feel so much better.

    Thanks and yes, Jeff, I completely agree.
