Here is a cool video that shows the awesome capabilities of the Elektron Machinedrum UW used to make idm and glitch style music.
A great part of the job is focused on the control tracks that can play a morph on the instrument traks making the machine change in quite unpredictable way the programmed sounds.
IMHO this is one of the BEST video about the ELEKTRON MACHINEDRUM on the net!
This is a glitch/random bend by Finlay Shakespeare http://www.futuresoundsystems.co.nr .
The mod was originally done on the casio sa1 but it should work with all the sa-serie.
Here is another random/glitch mod I found in a couple of forums:
GlitchDS is an homebrew application for composing/performing glitch music on the Nintendo DS.
It’s based on samples , that are played by masks and that can be altered with modulations and distortion.
The result is really interesting and is like having a micro laptop for your glitch needs that can travel in your pocket!
I made this video demo during a composing session, so it can sound not so “groovy” or complitely logic in some parts, but can be interesting to show some of the power of this software and how it works.
I forgot to say that it’s sample based, but you can load your own samples with one shot sounds but even loops and then experimentation starts!
I’ve done this video to show the Yamaha VSS30 in the sample editing territory…
A simple plick made beating two pens together near the onboard mic can be transformed in a rhythm…
Something like the bouncing ball by Aphex Twin…
I’ve made this video to demostrate how the the yamaha VSS30 can mangle the internal waves.
Everything is done only with the VSS , no external efx and NO samples.
