Re: Noise Line (Psytrance)

Considering how important sound design is in psytrance, I think you succeeded pretty well.

Lovely warm chords starting at 1:30!

Trying to make techno in 5/4 time signature

Here's my latest effort, this time focusing on a non-standard (for techno anyway) time signature. Filtering comes from an Allen & Heath DJ mixer, otherwise it's coming straight out of the DS's headphone output.

Re: M10: Restart loop when no more samples in step sequencer?

As far as I know, no, it's not possible. You either loop one pattern, or play the song from start to finish. It would be DAMN useful if you could set up it to loop, say, 4 patterns, instead of just 1. It's a bit awkward to create 64-step patterns for example, it'd be easier if you could have 4 16-st...

An attempt at Detroit techno

The last two days I've been studying old Derrick May tracks, trying to understand what gives them that special, unmistakeable Detroit-y feeling. This is my first attempt at trying to make such a tune, using the M01. Not perfect, but at least I've understood a few things about the subject. https://so...

Mr. Fingers - Can You Feel It (plus a crappy solo)

Here's something I made in about half an hour for fun and giggles: A cover version of the classic house track Can You Feel It by Mr. Fingers aka Larry Heard. The bassline isn't entirely correct, I'll try to fix it later. I also added a (really bad) improvised keyboard solo in the middle, played in r...

Three attempts at dancefloor-y techno

Here's three of my latest tracks, this time focusing on driving, dancefloor techno. As usual, it's all M01, besides a bit of EQ and filtering from my DJ mixer. https://soundcloud.com/user4904810/jus-techno-pt-2 https://soundcloud.com/user4904810/jus-techno https://soundcloud.com/user4904810/jus-tech...

Re: A slow, housey version of Toto's Africa

All the sounds come from the M01 and my Allen&Heath DJ mixer helps with a bit of EQ and filtering, which the M01 obviously cannot do, since it doesn't have filters. Recorded in real time from the DS's noisy headphone output, with me playing the mutes and some FX controls. So no multitracking and lot...

A slow, housey version of Toto's Africa

I don't usually do covers but here we go anyway! A slow, loopy house version of Toto's Africa: https://soundcloud.com/user4904810/super-mario-plays-the-intro As usual, there's a bit of EQ and filtering from my DJ mixer, I'm not a dogmatic M01 user. It's sort of a DJ tool track, very loopy and doesn'...

Some drum & bass

The last few days I've been experimenting with the Korg M01 and drum & bass. This is the best track of the genre I've come up with so far. As usual, it's not dogmatic M01 music as my DJ mixer does a bit of EQ and filtering. Otherwise, it's pure M01 with no multitracking, straight out of the lousy an...

Re: Three loopy house tracks

Here's two new ones. The first one is house, the second is more techno.

Again, it's pure M01, with a bit of filter help from my DJ mixer to keep things a bit more interesting.

Three loopy house tracks

Here's three of my latest tracks, made with the Korg M01. I just got it a few days ago and I'm still learning things, so don't be too hard on me! There's a bit of EQ and filtering from my Allen & Heath DJ mixer, to help fight the somewhat static nature of the M01, which has no ways to modulate sound...

New member from Finland

Hello all! A new member here, ready to share music and tips for the M01 and the DS-10. I've owned the DS-10 for a long time now, but only got the M01 last week, which I've already fallen in love with. Such a fun and fast instrument! I make simple, loopy house and techno with both. That's the music I...
