the unscratchable itch - the small but constant itching you normally don't notice because its so common to you - but its always there to remind you that being alive means to accept things that wont't change

Launchpad Jam Session 2016-06-05

Nikolaus Gradwohl2016-06-05T15:23:13+02:00

I recorded a jam session using a Volca Bass, a Volca Keys, a Streichfett, 2 Launchpads, u-he ACE and Bitwig Studio. I learned that I need to place my camera very carefully when recording these sessions to prevent my neon-lights or the launchpad led repeat frequency to interact with my camera. And I learned that a DSLR is very unforgiving to dust on a synth :-)

To create the effect I used a Reverb device in "Hall"-with a very large Size and maximum Width
