Novembeat 2020 – Day 23

Novembeat 2020 – Day 23

I “discovered” something great in my Polyend Tracker today. I say it with quotes because it was probably obvious to everyone else already. Similar to parameter locking on the Digitakt, you can lock a parameter on the Tracker without a trigger being tied to it. So, in this jam, two of my tracks are loops that I created in Ableton and Reason. The trigger lands only at the beginning of each loop. But, throughout the playback, I added moments where the loops are reversed, stuttered, or sent to the reverb and delay. It was a lot of fun and makes loops so much more dynamic.

Other than that, this was a pretty standard Tracker jam. Sliced drums get stuttered a bunch in the performance section. Some fire and brimstone sample from the only radio station I can get reception for in my basement. It was fun.

I just uploaded the video and noticed that I didn’t cut out the opening few seconds of the video where I do some drum hits on the pads. I do this at the beginning of every video in order to find a definite sync point between the audio and video. Normally, after syncing, I delete that section. I guess I forgot this time. Oops.
