D-1000 says hello...

Post by zerosum » Mon Feb 01, 2010 10:11 am

After spending some time getting to know and understand the D-1000, its now time to show the world what it sounds like.

Drums/percussion:
joey wrote:i want to hear this thing get really fucking nasty. I'm not hearing anything too crazy from these demos
The preamp overdrives nice after about 75%, patch the the individual outputs into the individual CV inputs on various voices and things get crazy.
Overdrive the preamp!(4:00)
Thump thump..Bump bump..(13:28)
Gabber(:29)
Rubber n Wood(1:54)
short thumpy(:56)
Roll switch is fun(:34)

Things get fun when you start modulating the tuning CV,
In this case I used a Blacet Binary Zone slaved to the D-1000 clock,
with one out of the BZ feeding a d-1000 voice CV, and the Inv out feeding another d-1000 voice CV:
modulate voices(:30)
Thats okay by itself, but a lot cooler with delay:
Modulated voices with delay(:30)
ADD dElay.....((6:10))
ADD dElay 2.....(2:57)
Delay settings for digirack mod delay II can be downloaded here.

Sound design/weird/effects/sequences,etc:

Using the individual outs doesn't cut them from the master output,
so the master output can feed the board/recording interface while the
individual voice outs can feed into eachother through the individual voice gate inputs which will pass audio to the bandpass filters.
Run 3 bandpass filters in series for formant effects.

Frogs(3:52)
slow long dark sequence/drone(17:00)
Wretch Machine through D-1000 drone(7:56)
Sounds like things freezing to death, cold icy wind....Wretch Machine and D-1000 wind drone(8:25)
Bl00d(2:48)

Fun with fast external clock, Blacet Window Comparator triggering 2 voices, Blacet Binary Zone triggering one voice. CGS/metalbox Psycho LFO feeding ramp CV.
Melting, burning, dripping(5:33)
Bouncy balls and marbles hit the floor(1:50)

Aliens dancing, puddles, rain, dripping(3:41)
modulating the voices for More wet drippy sounds(6:13)
3 big voices(4:51)

Thanks for all the listens and comments everyone! :love:

It took a couple sessions to really find its sweet spots,
Took me even longer to sort through all the bad demos I made and get to the decent ones. Its a rewarding experience attempting to understand this strange quirkly yellow box.
Awesome as a filterbank! :omg:

sounds like it would be great for minimalist techno - plastikman esque stuff. Got that heavy acid vibe about it.

That's exactly what I was thinking.
But I think your D-1000 is broken, Zerosum. It sounds so distorted? :despair:

He states explicitly that he overdrives the mixing tube on some tracks.

I'm listenning to your demos again with different ears thanks to the the wise words of Ken:
Kent wrote:Nope. The D-1000 basically has 3 x R-54 modules in it plus a cymbal/noise circuit.
everything is clear, i must have this!

sincerly love your tube-buchla demos:
Bouncy balls and marbles hit the floor
Melting, burning, dripping

I'm right there with you! I had a Wretch Machine #6? and It was evil as hell... I honestly didn't have the patience to learn it and since the waveshaper didn't sound as grinding as the TM-1, I sold it. One I got the euro rig kicking, snagged a R51... that is my GO TO VCA! I love that thing more than I could post here and ramble upon it's self.... been really wanting a 808 but, f'ng ridiculous what they are going for now. I love my 606 to death but... it's nowhere near the realm of this bitch. HOWEVER! When I do order my D-1000 (summer?) I can't wait to sync the two!!!

This thing sounds like a living creature to me... networking the bandpass filters.. the overdrive.... :hail: :hail: :hail:

Again zero, thanks for selling me on this dude. I"ll make sure I order it thru ya :)
