VOLCA FEATHERED PLACES: BiG VolCA Sound. Live outdoor Jam on #VolcaModular #VolcaKeys etc: Parrots

Real time live jam / improvisation Composed & Performed © Gary P Hayes in Mount Victoria Blue Mountains Australia on Korg #VolcaDrum #VolcaModular #VolcaBass #VolcaKeys Solo on KO2 delay from Koass KP3 recorded on Zoom H6 For those interested, the birds here are Crimson and Green Rosellas, Male and Female Australian King Parrots, Sulphur Crested Cockatoo, Wonga Pigeon and in the distance on some views Australian Magpies and Currawong.

Normally: All the Volcas and the KO2 are routed through MickXer 5 into 1. That then goes into the Zoom MS70 delay/reverb in stereo, then into the Zoom H6 recorder which powers my Beyer DT770 headphones for great mix balancing in real time. The volcas are sync’d as usual in a cv chain with each others in/out and v Drum as master. Also the Zoom H6 will eventually record 3 stereo tracks simultaneously (the vKeys and vModular through the effects) the vDrum and vBass (direct) and the two mics recording the ambient outdoor sounds live. For outdoor jams, power comes from normal phone style powerbanks 10000 & 20000mAh and I use the myvolts ripcord 5V to 9V USB adapter

VOLCA MODULAR: FIRST EXCURSION – No Talk. Instructional try 1 hr after box opening! #Volca #Modular

Obviously modular tends to be skewed more towards sound design than musicality (mostly), so please take that into account on this first run through – Been wanting to get the modular since it came out but wasn’t high on my list. But had a try out at a local music shop yesterday and was very impressed – you can certainly get sounds out of it that a basic east coast style analog synth can’t. Even in this first take super encouraged by some of the possibilities. Much of it is accidental (unless of course you have a wall of modular synths and you see this as a little toy to play with on the plane), but those new to it would likely be inspired to dive in deeper! Composed & Performed © Gary P Hayes on Korg Volca Modular (after one hour unboxing) Minor additions from Volca Beats & Strymon Blue Sky

BOSS SY1 MUSICAL REVIEW 1st hour out of box. Most Sounds: Very cool low latency audio-to-synth pedal

A longish walk/talk through (sorry for the slight cold!) of this cool pedal, which in reality is a fully fledged 121 preset synth. Aimed at guitarists after a more ‘keyboard’ player vibe, it is very nice for anyone who adds acoustic/audio impros to their OTB synth setups – so my review is a little walkthrough with examples in my style, solo combined with some ad hoc tunes….

RAVEL IN ANDROMEDA: Analog Synth Story Impros. SE02, Model D, Analog 4, Keysteps, System 1

Note: At 14:50 the volcas power off (dodgy Volca mix unit) meaning sync to the Model D and SE02 go off temporarily, I restart it of course without skipping a beat, sort of 🙂
