For this video Moog Rumba I wanted to try something different then what I’ve done in the past. Recently I updated to Ableton Live 11 and I thought it would be cool to try some afro-cuban rhythms that have always been a big influence on me in music. I decided to try a rumba inspired beat on the DFAM and see how it goes, since there are only eight steps in the sequence I went with a half time version. I might try using the Mother-32 next time for the beat because it would give me more room to work with, but I figured this was a start. I’m happy with how the sound turned out the Subharmonicon, Matriarch, and Grandmother blended nicely with the other semi-modular synthesizers; it really gave the whole song a different feel. I look forward to trying more of these great rhythmic patterns in the future. Check out my other videos here!
Thought this would be a cool sound to try out with a live performance video. The Moog Minitaur was the first synthesizer I owned. When I got a Moog Sirin I thought of trying to create paraphonic sound by sending midi to both from the M-Audio midisport 4×4 interface and recording the audio. This combination created a really awesome harmonizing sound that could be modulated or tweaked. In addition I patched up my Grandmother with the semi-modular trio Moog DFAM, Subharmonicon, and Mother-32 then midi synched with Ableton Live 10. Hope you enjoy this duet as much as I do, check out some of my other videos here!
