Battle 57 The old Synth you never use


#21

Yea that’s crazy the scratchin was made with the cow. Great track @KOHLBERG & thanks for filling us in on your process!


#22

Anytime!


#23

Was able to scramble up another beat with another 25 cent piano tape and an old acoustic guitar. Also scratched up some old robot gibberish from an old retro sci-fi flick. Well, I never!

Two days left, and probably a little extension. I’m still working on mine. It’s halfway finished!

I hope to listen to some more entries, hurry up girls and boys! :*


#26

I’m not nearly halfway finished but I might get something done in a couple of days…


#27

Good to hear, I leave it open a few days!


#28

Live is full, but I still love my op-1…


#29

Good!


#30

Yea, if we still have a few more days, I’ll work on something tonight. My family came down for Thanksgiving & I didn’t really have any time to work on this :confused:


#31

Ok, let’s just say next Sunday!


#32

Sth like one day left over.

Bring the noise!

I tried making a track for this battle since about two weeks ago. I started with a bunch of samples from some vinyl I’ve recently procured, and it was sounding dope, but I couldn’t quite find a way to combine my synth of choice (for this battle) into it.

So, I was like what the heck? I had to get that track done and start again. (I’ll post that track on the OP tracks thread and it’s called “soul crip” if you wanna peep).

Once I reset my OP & a new project ensued only a day ago, I happened to grab 2 incredibly dope and recently acquired vinyl records to pair with my Prophet, hence the 3/12’s title. It’s crazy what sometimes emerges serendipitously. I’ve dug through records sometimes for days looking for something that mixes as deeply. The whole track came together in a matter of hours.

Please enjoy or shred apart.

Still in the m[i/e]ddle of it, I hope my kids let me finish this today.


#35

Here’s mine.
I used my old Kaossilator 1 plus the OP-1 engines. I called the song after a 75 year old friend who left yesterday to the south in his camping car…

Thanks @kln for your entry
looking forward to @motone 's track!


#36

Funny, our tracks are going very well together
Nice one! @kln

And finally here’s my track:
https://soundcloud.com/motone/genreraid

I dug out my Grendel Grenadier RA-9, a quirky analogue mono synth, that I have bought some years ago and stashed away but haven’t used yet.

All sounds (except the drumloop) are coming dry from this synth, sequenced with its internal unique 4-step CV / 32-step trigger sequencer, synced to the OP-1 via OPLab + @darenager 's awesome SyncLab addon.
The drumloop is sampled from Sunstone “Midas Beats”, my last purchase on iTunes, chopped up in the OP-1 and processed through the NITRO effect.

Each track is more or less recorded in one take. All mixing and recording done on the OP-1, a pinch of SPRING reverb on the master plus compression via DRIVE.

The name is just an anagram of the synth’s name. :wink:

Thanks @mixrasta for this challenge!

Yeah, I got my entry on time !

Glad to be part of it, I really enjoyed playing with the Shruthi-1 : what a synth ! Plus it’s the very first I was pretty proud to assemble.
The key was the Novation 61SL mkIII I used to program it, makes it way easier not to need diving into menus !!
I also used the Rytm for drums, as I hadn’t used it for ages.
In-between the lines you’ll find some little noises taken from Richard Devine’s Sort\Lave album that really is a bottomless pit when it comes to find alien noises !
Everything recorded and mastered directly within the OP-1, that also plays its part.

Thank you, thank you @mixrasta I am so thrilled to have re-discovered my old little synth.
And the simple pleasure to record a track in the OP-1!

@Monotone I dig your track. This synth seems a b s o l u t e l y cr azy !
+You really maxed out the Tape with this one ! :smiley:

Supercool, we have your entries for this battle!
I’m going to set up the voting later this evening. If anyone still has something in the pipeline, I can add your track to the list!
