This is a little piece I wrote for the final audition of the academic year, in the music school where I work.
It is the first time I mix a little chamber music set with electronic music, in this case playing a little Eurorack system and a Synthstrom Deluge doing the sequencing and a few samples. My purpose was to integrate the electronic part with the acoustic instruments so they could work well together as a one.
I bought the Synthstrom Deluge only 2 weeks ago, and it was used for some sample drums and fx, and mainly for sequencing. It was something simple but worked perfectly.
The eurorack system is using mainly a Mutable Instruments Plaits in Modal Resonator mode, thru a WMD MMF filter and a Chronoblob for delay. Mutable Instruments Peaks for the Kick drum. Happy Nerding 3xMIA for mixing. ALM Pamela NW for modulation.
Waldorf Rocket arpeggios sequenced, and recorded by the Deluge. Also added delay and reverb to the audio IN LR.
Recording the Deluge and the Waldorf Rocket was very easy, directly to the Deluge's SD card. Then imported to 1 track of Logic, and aplying only a little eq and compressor.
Later I thought I needed a bass in the middle of the track, and recorded it with the Analog Keys. Again a little bit of eq and compressor.
Afterwards I added a mastering preset to the master bus and adjusted the levels a little bit.
Enjoyed this a lot. I like the digital crunch towards the end.
I've been looking forward to using that free Arturia plugin too. I had thought it would be too obvious to use on the master but it sounds really nice here.
Thanks! The Arturia plugin sounds good, but most of the character comes from the sounds of the Deluge. That crunch towards the end is the FM from the bass sound (you can see me moving the knobs a little in the video)
1.You can use both inputs at tbe same time. Each one in a diferent track.
2.Line level. Typical of synths, drum machines,...
3.You can use dynamic mics (for example a Shure SM57) or condenser mics with an external phantom power.
