I did the video using Blender, awesome free 3D modeling software.
This track is the first one featuring my awesome new JazzMaster guitar. I just love the sound of this awesome instrument, so inspiring, it's just pure magic ;-)
This track is about love, emotions and nostalgia. First track with my new analog Synthesizer, the Dreadbox Nyx. Paired with my Moog Slim Phatty, it sounds absolutely delicious to my ears, especially on the second part of the first chorus ! :)
I released three new EPs in the last 6 month.
I finalized the productions of the last two years in three different albums with quite different genres:
I did a nice Wobble Bass patch with my new Behringer Neutron. The Behringer Neutron is an awesome semi-modular analog synth, and it sounds awesome for bass sounds...
I did a Patch Sheet to share this sound with you!
I have built a deep and dark bass sound on my Moog Slim Phatty the other day, so I decided to sample it and create this phat analog bass instrument.
I sampled every note from C1 to C6 to create this Ableton Live instrument. This Simpler instrument is compatible with Ableton Live 9 (and above) Standard and Suite.
I have carefully sampled my Dreadbox Nyx to create this very nice analog polyphonic pad.
I sampled every note from C1 to C6 to create this Ableton Live instrument. It allows you to play polyphonic pads with these sweet analog synth high quality samples. Warmth and lush guaranteed ;-)

I spent about 6 month looking at videos about this unusual analog synth. I was especially attracted by the patch bay and the sound of the oscillators, but also by the really musical sounds people managed to get out of it. I finally decided to buy one in December.
The machine was soon on my desk, I unboxed it and plugged it right away. But what a bummer, the synth was not tuned, the intervals between the notes were not correct, how comes?
Hopefully, I easily found out the tuning manual on the Dreadbox web site. I took a screwdriver and all my courage to open the beast and follow the instructions...
4 small screws to tune the two oscillators.
It was finally quite easy as only the VCO1 scale had to be adjusted. Everything was fine again ;-)
I spent quite a lot of time trying to find some documentation on how to creatively use the patch bay, But the best advice I found was to experiment by myself, so I did.
I already had some additional cables (I use with my Arturia Microbrute) to split the modulation sources. The VCO2 and M2 sources are the most obvious ones, and I quickly got some interesting results. In the above example I did the following routing:
I captured this jam yesterday. My Novation Circuit was a perfect controler for the Nyx. I use my Moog Slim Phatty for the bass and the Elektron Analog Keys for the pad.
The EHX Memory Man with Hazarai echo pedal adds a river of sweet echoes on the Nyx sound, love it!
As usually when I have a new gear, it makes me write a few songs. Here is a first one. The Dreadbox Nyx perfectly complement my good old Moog Slim Phatty. I just love how they sing together in the Chorus (starting at 2'45").
