Ok, here are the rules: #1
Sample a singing saw.
(I would recommend tutorials (f.e. edgar guerreiro´s youtube basic tutorial), if you search for the „pure noises“ without piano etc…)
Modulate “your” saw somehow with the G-Force-Modulator.
That means, this time you can use as much external instruments/devices as you want to…
Most important thing is to shake your OP-1
Of course, everything hast to be mixed and mastered on our beloved little device.
Please upload your tracks to soundcloud with #OP-1Battle71.
Deadline is 27.11.2020
Best wishes and good luck
P.S.: At first I also wanted you to sample a classic 70ies disco tune/break/loop of your personal choice as the 4th rule. But I decided against, because I don´t wanna make to much “crazy” rules. But feel free to experiment.
I kinda cheated and posted to youtube instead of soundcloud because I made a little performance video of me noodling around with my track. The singing saw sample comes in at 1:05. I had no idea you could do that with a saw. A neat-o party trick, eh? I set the g force sensor to modulate the cwo delay time. The main ugly sample is some poor sap fiddling with a synthesizer guitar pedal. Can’t remember which one.
Since we were allowed to use other gear, main chords/“guitar sounding lead” are my Pianet T though 3 of the 4 (reverb or delay depending on need)
Boss FZ-2 (Hyper Fuzz - gain boost)
MXR Classic Distortion
MXR Carbon Copy
Strymon Big Sky
All Pianet played live. Solo lines of Pianet and Singing Saw sample played over 4 tape tracks live onto album.
Singing saw sample was affected by G-Force sensor on the “white” parameter (the loop end) for some nasty growls in the final 3rd section.
Had a lot of fun sprinkling the “ping” of another singing saw as a 12-tone serial “endless” sequence…
