KORG VOLCA LIVE SESSION w AMBIENT GUITAR (Drone/Looping/Soundscape) Keys...

KORG VOLCA Series on an AMBIENT psychedelic LIVE SESSION with ambient guitar live loops (Drones) & Roland Juno 60, Jomox Xbase 09 (only percussion). Main synths are Volca Keys, Bass and Beats with individual Hi Hat Output. The Main Output of VOLCA BEATS goes to the Filter Input of my DOEPFER MS-404. I have described in the video (filmed with 3 cams), which Synths are playing and muted. So you don't have to guess the different sounds.

In the middle of the session I used Waldorf Puls I for a Sample&Hold-sound, too. Yamaha RM1x is just used as Master MIDI-Clock (no use of internal sounds). Beats has MIDI-Out Mod and syncs my Boomerang III Looper, which is running in free mode. all synths use their internal sequencer/arp or are played live.
Recorded without overdubs and mastering in just one take. 


Volca Keys signal left channel into MFB-Filterbox and right channel straight into the Submixer, with heavy use of Delay
