Posted by in News, Studio, Videos

Presenting the next episode in our short film series Analogue, a profile of the musicians whose love affair with analogue sound has come to define the way they work. Growing up in Dresden in the ’80s and ’90s with an ear for Kraftwerk and early techno, it’s no surprise Jacob Korn developed something of an obsession with synths. Whether taking apart his own gear, or modding others to extract new sounds, he is a producer who takes a hands-on approach to making music, revelling in the systems and simplicities of…read more

The Danelectro Spring King is a small spring reverb, but there’s also a slapback delay in it, using a PT2399S chip.

Once it’s taken off…read more

Pearl DRX-1 tune + decay mod triggered by TR-606 (poor man´s Syncussion)

Posted by in equipment, mods & repairs, News, Studio

Stereoping pointed out some interesting mods for this VCR-looking analog drum beast. Since I like the idea of saving kits i focussed on parameters like tune and decay for real-time control. Triggering those 5 voices by my modded TR-606 with multiple outputs. Great fun! Duration: 6h. Thx for the nice documentation! http://www.stereoping.com/pearl-drx-1-drumsynth/?lang=en The Pearl DRX-1 has 5 Instruments which can be triggered by drum pads. Of course, you can also feed some trigger signals into it. All instruments have the same parameters and are therefore sounding identical, although the pitch…read more
