Finally my new hardware setup is complete and I can make electronic music without using any computer. I bought an Electribe MX that now sequences my Doepfer Dark Energy and also my Polysynth CheetahMS6. The Poly has got a new Eprom Chip which allows it´s parameters to be edited via knobs through the Beringer BCR2000. The Doepfer Darktime gives the Master Clock for the Electribe and also for the Monotribe which you hear in the beginning. The Dark Energy has now got a second VCO module and ADSR Envelope module in a small modular case from doepfer along with a multiples module and a mixer module. As effects I use an analog chorus for the Polysynth and an analog delay as Insert Effect. The drums are played with the electribe itself and also use the inbuilt electribe effects.

OK, this is not fully analog, as the Electribe uses PCM samples for the drumhits, but I got rid of the computer and pain in the ass mouseclicking and now can make tunes without it. I use the Electribe as a sequencer beacause it can store all the patterns so I can organize my "songs".

Just two patterns here to change between the slow and fast drumbeat and the bassline. The rest is tweaked live.

Sorry for the strange font above, I copied that from FB.

Hope you enjoy the track and please tell me what you think. :-) :beer:

Definitely digging this man; really opens up for me around 1:10 (not too crazy about the intro synth - sounds a little generic) and I think the rest of the track progresses very solidly. I do feel like the change in the bassline is too abrupt at 2:25, I'd like for it to really explode when that high synth/pad comes in at 2:50 and really ties that whole section together. Not that I'm a master of composition, I just feel like that would be a more fluid progression.

Definitely no problems with the mixing, everything sounds very crisp and tight. I bet you're enjoying that new equipment.

 

I'll be checking out your other stuff.

Gut gemacht!

I feel the delay is too loud, and maybe the drums too. Maybe it would be better in the bass solo if the drums underlined the rhythms the bass melody play, but that's a pain in the arse with a hardware sequencer (at least for me). Love the sound of the Dark Energy and the sound of the track in general. Pleasant listen :)
