Some synth / meme bullshit using VCV rack. Our friend competed in a speedrunning tournament and the commentators thought he looked quite sad. So I turned it into an "exploration of dark emotions using sound and memes" (see I told you there would be bullshit).

A little love song to the 808. Also my first Ableton project.

My favorite VCV Rack jam so far, a bass drum, a snare, two voices, and a whole lot of modulation.

Also I might as well post vcvrack_04 and vcvrack_05 for completeness, I wasn't too happy with them but here they are anyway.

Tutorial #3 was on the voltage controlled filter. I also was playing around with controlling the knobs with my new midi controller, the Arturia Minilab MkII. Not too happy with the outcome here, but made a video to document it nonetheless.

Continuing on Omri Cohen's beginner patches series, this one focuses on using an LFO to modulate the pulse width of a square wave and mangling the envelope generator. I also learned a valuable lesson about making sure your envelope is actually attenuating your signal.

In the racial justice bundle I came across an app named Drum Brain. It allows you to use a Rockband drum set to create drum loops. It is pretty cool on it's own, but then I realized you can load in your own samples, and since I am a terrible drummer I also was very happy to see a quantize function in there.

So I loaded up a bunch of 808 samples and made a nice little loop. Really fun to play around with, basically using a e-drum set instead of a sequencer. Here is the sequence and the output.

Livestreamed a tidal cycles improv session, was not really feeling it and it was sort of going nowhere and then it just came together all of the sudden. Ended up liking the outcome quite a bit, and it sort of surprised me.

Playing around with tidal cycles, the main beat was stolen content, but worked some other stuff in that I enjoyed

"Live coding" in the general sense is creating art using code, usually on the fly in an improvisational way.

I have been playing around with music production using a patterning language Tidal Cycles, where you can create patterns and sequences of samples and synths among other things.

Here are a few of my explorations using it
