Cuckoomusic has shared a new video – Analog Rytm – Cuckoo Epic Jam.
The Rytm is upon us, and I’ve had some time to learn how to operate it. Knowing another Elektron is definitely helpful. But there’s a lot of stuff specific to the Rytm that you have to teach your head and fingers in order to move quickly.
In this video I’m making heavy use of Performance mode. With each pad you can map parameter changes all over the sounds and fx. They’re aftertouch sensitive and it works very well. I’ve got one pad mapped for compression, another for reverb send, another one for delay, and two for pitch bending. The kick pad is for making the kick drum a bit boomier.
Stuff like this helps making this machine playful and fun to operate. You can still program stuff really tight, but notice how I move around in this video without spending too much time fiddling around with the knobs and stuff, and come to think of it – I didn’t even touch the sequencer trig knobs. It feels great working this way!
Ok, that’s it for today. Thanks for watching!
Until next time 🙂
