Leon du star - make dub
2019-05-09
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 :)

Leon du star 128 sx oscillators in 1
2014-12-31
a multishot (synth-slices-in-one) sample which contains almost 128 oscillators

the list of all included oscillators:
https://gist.github.com/coderofsalvation/7f0365c7ac973b024191

Most basic oscs are saw/sine/square and such, in 2nd, 4th, and 6th octave variations. For each variation there's also a interval variation (with a 1st,2nd,3nd harmonic added).

How to use: check this youtube tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sE-Wq0MqqCQ . load this sample into your SX. Goto sample, timeslice the sample, the only exception to the youtube-tutorial is to select 128/16 slices (hint: use shift+dial) and make sure every step is lit (128 steps) .

My buddy Roland invited me to his place (he lives at number 303, no joke!), and before I knew it I was trying out some mad funky stuff with Roland and his squirrel :D

Triple-crossfade-trick electribe esx
2013-03-24
DISCLAIMER: my english is experimental (just like my music) :)

just found out a trick to easily switch between 3 audiosources: your arrangement + 2 chaos parts. This is a simple example, but you could use this technique to do crazy skrillex/dubstep 'switch'-stuff (you could for example switch between 3 dubstep/glitchgrooves). Btw. the video ends pretty abrupt because my iphone fell down because the sounds were just too funky for my iphone. :D

(Im using stretchparts in the example, but it could be anything)

preparation
========
1) put crazy stuff on stretchparts 1 &amp; 2
2) trigger every note on stretchparts 1 &amp; 2 (else sometimes sounds arent triggered)
3) unmute everything, but mute the stretchparts
4) save the pattern

performance
=========
1) breath, relax and think about pink elephants :)
2) find out if your current pattern has all notes triggered on stretchpart 1 &amp; 2 (shift stretchpart 1 or 2)
2) if so, you know your pattern is 'triple-crossfade'-compatible
3) at the end of the beat, solo stretchpart 1 or 2
4) quickly hold shift, and press the pattern button at the beginning of the beat

now the pattern button is flashing, you are in triple-crossfade-mode now :)

5) while holding shift with your left thumb, playfully press pattern, stretchpart 1 or stretchpart 2 in a cycling way. (And practice cool timings)

Hope this helps. Big respect for danieklerr (Sauce) &amp; 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 :)

Internal sidechaining with electribe esx
2013-03-24
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.
