New track! Been working on this one for six months so it's just as contrived and labored as you'd expect. BUT, it's also rather messy and unglued.

Main sound sources are Make Noise DPO (bass), Mutable Instruments Plaits (all of the "random" sounds), Korg Electribe 2 (drums) and Instruō Cš-L controlled by the Arturia MicroFreak (melody).


The melody is based on this patch, by the way:

I made the patch for this track all that time ago but enjoyed it in all its simplicity so I did a bunch of improvisations that day and my partner recorded one of those improvisations that turned into our most popular video to this date.


Enjoyed both, especially the Soundcloud one :)


Thanks!


Hi Sislte,

Thanks for sharing your music and your video. I liked your video, gives a nice overview of your modular system :-)

I like the Crenulated Orian, nice track! Messy? I feel it's all right, it's very creative. The creativity you put in your music is lovely to listen at. Unglued? Perhaps at one or two spots but it doesn't really disturb me as a listener. I took the efforts to sit in my "listening chair" and I was swinging in my chair on your music, so yeah, I liked it! :-)

Also those "Plaits random sounds" were nice and enjoyable to listen at. Overall I feel this is a good piece of music and I will be honest with you, I am jealous :-) Jealous that you can make music that currently I wouldn't be able to create/make it. So keep up the good work and I look forward in hearing your next track! :-)

Oh yes, by the way, this track (especially the, roughly, first half of it) reminded me a bit of the music of Pyrolator, for example the Wunderland album. So, nicely done!

Kind regards, Garfield Modular.


That case has filled out quite a lot since that video was recorded. And I have another, hehe.

Thank you very much for listening and commenting. It means the world to me! And thanks for the tip about Pyrolator, I'll check it out.


Hi Sislte,

Then I am not only looking forward to your next track but to your next video about your most recent modular case too ;-)

Thank you very much for sharing and kind regards, Garfield.


Again, big thanks!

Both cases are available here:
ModularGrid Rack
ModularGrid Rack

Even though that isn't really the same thing as seeing them for real!


Hi Sislte,

Wow! You got your case from the video quite a bit updated and transformed to a rather large modular system :-) Yes, I agree, seeing the real thing is nicer :-) However for planning the "My Modular" racks are nice to use and are very helpful.

How is your experience with the DPO of Make Noise, is it worth the investment? I am (extremely) happy with the STO of Make Noise but I wonder (looking at the price) if the DPO can cause me that much pleasure as well?

Enjoy your modular system and kind regards, Garfield.

No doubt! DPO has a very cool, rubbery FM sound. It is also nice to be able to use linear and exponential cross FM modulation at the same time.

That said, I love the Instruō Cš-L too. It has a different sound. More.. rigid, harsh even, but good. It has quite many functions that the DPO lacks, such as ring modulation, fold on both oscillators, more outputs and so on. It is warranted to have both.


Hi Sislte,

Oh.... that makes it, to decide what to consider to be the next VCO/DCO, even more difficult, because the other one I am considering is indeed the Cs-L, if looking at the larger oscillators.

Why can't we just all win the lottery so we don't have to choose and just can buy whatever we want to have it tested and play with? ;-) Just kidding.

Kind regards, Garfield.
