Leon du star - make dub
This track is an experiment of dub sounddesign.
The deep & complex sounds of this track are based on simplicity.
It demonstrates how deep textures can be composed out of 3 seconds of audio (kick,hihat, and a single-cycle squarewave) from the SX upgrade-pack (see link above).
It's an optimistic message to anyone: "“People often associate complexity with deeper meaning, when often after precious time has been lost, it is realized that simplicity is the key to everything.” 
(Gary Hopkins)

All sounds come directly from this hardware sampler.
Just like music was made back in the days.
No laptop, no external fx, no eq, no plugin, the hiss is real!

ps. the auto-focus is...something i will disable in future videos :)

Internal sidechaining with electribe esx
DISCLAIMER: my english is experimental (just like my music) :)

here's a trick to do some clever sidechaining of certain parts, to prevent your tubes and audiostream from going berserk.Could be really handy for very aggresive house/electro/dubstep grooves.

Hope this helps. Big respect for danieklerr (Sauce) & Jeff (OpenElectribe). The ESX has much hidden areas which are to be explored. Lets put the skilllevel higher and higher! Its possibilities lies in the hand of its user. Don't fool yourself that this machine has low specs, the fun thing about this realtime 'mini-daw' is that many features can be accessed in realtime (and parallel!). The resampling feature literally enables unlimited possibilities, one groove gives birth to another, its almost a fractal. Oh yes, and you don't have to worry about midimappings,plugins,updates,latency..leave that for the computers :)
