The FAWM 2018
Welcome back to another post about an event that took place last February. It was in fact the February Album Writing Month 2018. In this article I would like to write down some initial thoughts on the process, how I proceeded and end with some final thoughts of this event.
The launchpad pro
About two weeks ago I have bought myself a launchpad pro to use with Propellerhead Reason. The main reason why I bought this device is because I needed a specific range of knobs that I could toggle on an off during a live performance act. Nothing more really. While I plugged this device in the computer and started to mess around with it I realized there are some really big issues with using the Launchpad pro native inside Reason itself.
A modular build with Thor
Welcome back to an idea I had in my mind to do for a very long time. I did something similar while making a 4-Operator FM synthesizer in Reason. While that concept was never finished (because it was way to time consuming to set it up). Also because it had bad reception on the PUF back then, I decided to ditch the whole idea on creating a polyphonic 4-Operator FM synth. While last week there was this additional spark again to create a different set up. And this set up was initialized by the idea on the Xpander build I did last week. The Xpander synthesizer was based on 6 oscillators and where every oscillator has their own position on the Notch Filter.
