Ode to Repro-1

Nikolaus Gradwohl2016-11-17T05:05:40+01:00

The first track I recorded using u-he's newest plugin Repro~1. Every synth track is created using the plugin - the Drums come from a Volca-Sample

The repro~1 is a neat little monosynth plugin and is an emulation of the sequential circuits pro-one. The plugin is currently in beta and you can download and test a version till december. I absolutely love how the filter distorts when you drive it a little to hot and use the feedback knob and I immediatly bought a licence after hearing the "Ancient Electromagnetic" Preset :-)

This little plugin will find its place in my workflow.

feel free to leave comments or click the like button on soundcloud if you enjoyed the track

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

The song was recorded in bitwig-studio only using bitwig internal instruments or effects

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 :-)
