        4 minute snip of a 25+ minute live analog session elektrobahn is a studio and live performance project that works completely with old school cv gate and pre-first gen midi. all the vintage gear that's in the rack you see here and on elektrobahn.com is pre 85. the moogerfoogers, dp4 and orb sequencer (which has switched out to a doepfer maq) obviously are not vintage, so we bent the rules a bit. in the studio we employ a couple of tape echos, mutrons and other vintage effects. the point of the project is sentimental in regard to a fascination with the simplistic mechanics of old gear, modulated with the aesthetics and sonic sensibilities of the 21st century. its very much a modular approach which is popular again. everything is multi track recorded in one pass to a computer. there is no manipulation of the sequence. it's eq'd and slightly compressed. why, you ask? to some, this might seem tedious, and too simple to achieve a well rounded track. to us, the focus is it's simplicity. it's about interesting harmonics and the strange behavior of circuits and it's effect on air molecules as they beat the shit out of the studio/gallery/warehouse walls... gear heard on this recording: korg ms10, korg sq10, moogerfooger fx, roland tr-808, akai ax60, akai s612, moog memorymoog, ensoniq dp4 all video recorded & edited by Elektrobahn with Canon 5D mk II & Final Cut Pro. http://www.elektrobahn.com

            In the first part of the video the DEP-1 pitch shifts the incoming sound as an arpeggiator in different sequences. Then there is a mode that samples on a threshold, and plays the samples back.. then there is this mode with feedback.. and then i switch to regular delay with variable sample playback/record speed.

              This tutorial looks at building Kick drums based off the classic TR-808 and TR-909. The tutorial goes over how to calculate Freq and Q (Quality Factor) from reading schematics. The video also shows how to modify the Core static BP filter to use Q values instead of Resonance. To see how to do the same thing for BandWidth (BW), see our previous video on Vocoders vimeo.com/59133221 The video also points out the excellent tutorials for building a TR-909 Kick at http://www.nireaktor.com/reaktor-tutorials/how-to-make-a-909-kick-in-reaktor/

                    RETROTECH is an electronic music concert created e composed by CARLOS TRILHA. On stage, he use synthesizers, analogue sequencers and drum machines from the 70's and early 80's. These historical instruments evoke the origin of characteristic electronic sounds that are now widely used in many types of pop and electronic music. Photos: http://www.flickr.com/photos/carlostrilha/sets/72157608025399794/ A unique detail of this production is that they do not use loops or sound libraries. All the sounds are created from real instruments and are first generation, allowing RETROTECH to make a striking reinterpretation of the classic sound of electronic music. The highlight of the live performances is the use of rare analog instruments, staged to show the public how these interesting devices work. In addition, RETROTECH also uses a special set of projection images from generative code (created in real time), synchronized by software written with MAX/MSP/JITTER by ALESSANDRA MARFISA specially for each performance. RETROTECH is a work that recalls the "belle epoque" of electronic music; more than just an exciting audio-visual experience, it is "an inspiring journey through time for lovers of contemporary art."
