Improvisation IV – Trigger Derivatives

This is another improvisation – this time Ableton Live does some controlling of the A-100 system. Digital meets analog. We start with some pink noise put through an A-108 Ladder Filter and an A-127 Triple VC Resonance Filter. Soon, there’s some drumming from EZdrummer put through Ableton’s built in effects. The bass line we hear is just one single A-110 oscillator (put through an A-137-1 Wave Multiplier and an A-101-1 Vactrol VCF in lowpass and bandpass mode). Quite fat, huh? Then we have some side-lines (same melody as bass line, just transposed) with triggers derived from the bass line via A-160 Clock Divider and A-165 Trigger Modifier. One side line consists of two A-110 VCOs put through an A-106-1 Xtreme Filter, the other one is a single A-111 Highend VCO which is sent into an A-137-2 Wave Multiplier II and an A-106-5 SEM Filter (highpass mode). Both wave multipliers are modulated by several independent LFOs.  That’s it, basically. Just a few effects from Ableton added and then mastered in Cubase.

Here we go:
