I've been wanting to sample and remix my favourite Northern Soul classic for a long time. I finally got down to doing it with my Pocket Operators (PO-133, PO-14, PO-12). Here's my Acid inspired Big Beat take on The Flirtations' "Nothing But A Heartache".
First time with my "big setup" in this jam. Three Pocket Operators and Korg NTS-1 mixed with Maker Hart Loop Mixer. The PO-20 is run through a BOSS OS-2, the PO-28 through a Zoom MS-70 CDR. The PO-12 is the master clock and connects to the others through a Sync Splitter. I ran out of TRS cables and had to record with the built-in mics of my digital recorder, plus I didn't account for the noise of the disco lights, so the audio isn't that good, unfortunately. Still was a fun jam, though.
A little Breakbeat jam on my Pocket Operators, using the PO-12 Rhythm, the PO-20 Arcade and the PO-28 Robot. No outboard effects, just a touch of EQ and volume adjustment, the latter due to the fact that my PO Sync Splitter is still en route and there was quite a bit of ducking inbetween the POs.
My first steps with the Nanoloop FM, a dedicated nanoloop device with FM synthesis, filtered square waves, 4 channels: 1-, 2-, 3-voice, noise; 16-step sequencer; memory: 64 banks with 8*4 patterns; song mode; data transfer / update via audio; sync: analog and MIDI; power: 2xAAA = 50h+ Find out more here.
Little jam with a loop to demo the basic functions. Still far more to explore but it's fun already.
