I was playing around with Cypher2
last night, which is a synth engine/plug-in from ROLI (I only have the demo, included with the Seaboard I bought). I was just initially picking sounds at random, and recorded a basic progression in Track 3. I didn't save the midi clip, but essentially, it was just playing chords that were stacked 5ths, starting with a C-G-D-A, then planing that whole shape up a minor third, back to the initial chord, then down a whole (so the bass notes moved from C to Eb, back to C and then to Bb). I addd some other little melody lines of sorts in Tracks 1 and 2, though they're not super out front, which I think actually turned out pretty cool. Track 4 was recorded from Swarmalator T, which created a random little line that I recorded, then chopped out a portion to fit. Tracks 5 and 6 are the only tracks I left as midi clips, as I needed to record anything from Cypher2 to audio, so when the demo ended I wouldn't lose any settings. Track 7 is another spacey background sound, and Track 8 sort of a similar thing, though I reversed each bar, to get a more interesting sound. Finally, we have Track 9 which uses the Technical Glitch Kit, a drumkit from Ableton's Glitch and Wash pack. I don't use this kit that much, but I like the sort of toy drum, tiny sound of them. Overall, this random session turned out pretty cool, so maybe I'll keep playing around with it, see where things go.
Hope you enjoy!
