Includes high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more. Paying supporters also get unlimited streaming via the free Bandcamp app.
BONUS ITEMs: If your purchase the album, you'll get four SysEx files: three kits (vital to reproducing the sound of this album) and one mini-sound-pack (17 sounds). These sounds are exclusive to this album and aren't included in "SYNTHETICS," the official Elektron sound-pack by (d). Please read the attached README.txt file for more info.
Great music can be composed with just about anything, even an instrument *meant* for drumming duties. What I have found out during the course of making the Elektron sound-pack and this EP is that the "drum machine" descriptor does it no justice. To call this device simply a drum machine is like calling a smart-phone "just" a the thing on which you talk to other people.
The seven tracks created on the Elektron Analog RYTM drum-machine, using altered sounds from my official Elektron sound-pack, "SYNTHETICS," available on Elektron.se. 100% Analog RYTM, no external efx, some editing and minor EQ-ing.
When Elektron approached me to design some sounds for an upcoming AR sound-pack, I was happy to do it! Of course, I wanted to demonstrate some of the sounds, but playing single drum-hits doesn't give any context. This is an EP of my work and also a demonstration of what one could do with these sounds and machine.
