I finally managed to get the last one of the volca trio :-) Here is my first live session using all three volca machines.

I created a small chuck script that makes ardour jump to a marker using osc messages. These messages get triggered by the midi signals created by my launchpad mini. I also synced my volca bass to the track using midi-clock. Unfortunately ardour doesn´t send midi sync signals when playing in loop mode. So I created a midi track and sent the same note that my chuck script uses to trigger the "jump-to-marker-1" signal to create the loop.

The lower 5 glowing buttons control the mute state of the first 5 tracks.

you can download my chuck code after this video.

All the sounds except the drum loop have been created using a volca bass or a volca keys. The bass sequence is the same I used in my last blogpost only played slower.

I bought a Volca Keys from Korg yesterday and recorded a short test sequence using ardour. All sounds are unprocessed except for a parametric equalizer to remove a high pitched hiss from the recording (damn you usb cable!). The only thing not from the volca keys is a basedrum sample.

The keys is a really awesome sounding little box.
