After a long hiatus, I re-built my home studio with a Roland VS-1880 digital
workstation at the core. This was the setup I used to record "Solos On
as well as some early promotional material. Here I used
the VS-1880 to capture two improvs I did using the Stick and the Echoplex.
Recorded at Home in Novi, Michigan
The first piece was simply an untitled soundscape using Stick, MIDI Stick,
and Echoplex. The piece was later re-recorded and titled "The Wailing
of the Damned"
for the "121normal"
release. The second piece was
recorded using Stick and Echoplex (no MIDI or rhythm tracks) using a
technique I picked up from Andre Lafosse. In this
recording, you hear the two completed loops and I switched between them.
Unfortunately I didn't have the foresight to turn on the VS until the loops
were already recorded so you miss the buildup.
