Gear-a-holic part 2


Just recently I bought this interesting pocket size synth-looper Korg Kaossilator. Nice little toy to play with. It includes plenty of synthetic sounds which you can control by touch pad in a same manner you control effects in Kaosspad (another fancy toy from Korg). You can also create nice loops which you unfortunately cannot save for later use (that´s why portable recorder is handy companion tool).
Here are two very different tracks I made by Kaossilator. First track One Minute_11 is a short new age/ambient track which will be featured in upcoming "60 Minutes" CD. Second example Piper of the Wasteland is long (nearly 12 minutes) slightly edited track which is based on growing layers of loops. At best there must be about 20 different sounds looping around.

It certainly builds upon itself... and you take it to all the strange places I love to linger. The longer track is stunning. The sounds are nearly impossible to place. Very cool stuff Marko

Thanks Brad. I made some tracks that last for half hour but maybe that is little bit too much...?

Just finished listening to it again... Press it... put it on CD.

half hour? Whether it's to much really depends on the mood. I generally don't listen to long pieces unless I can hear them in their entirety.

Cheers and happy new years

I normally don´t make tracks that last over 15 minutes but I kind of lost myself into it. This track will be featured on some CD-r later, but that half hour jam will probably stay in my archives (or will surface in later releases in heavily edited form).
So many ideas and projects... so little time.

Happy new year.
