Here’s a new scratch routine I built for the Kid Koala 12 Bit Blues Contest.
For this one I used the 15 Blues Bits Battle Flexi included with the 12 Bit Blues special edition, and Ableton Live’s Looper to do the layering off one turntable.
If you like the routine please give it Thumbs Up on Youtube, I’d really appreciate it.
Performed on the MPD32 with Ableton Live.

I know it’s been quiet lately, but here’s a bit of what I’ve been working on.
Tap Sequence lets you program a list of notes, then trigger each one sequentially each time the rack receives any MIDI note. This lets you, for example, play full melodies with a single drum pad, adding natural variation and timing. It also uses the Scale plug-in for easy melody transposition.

It’s always “more distortion” or “more cowbell”, but no one ever asks for more reverb. How sad.
Well, if you are with me on this, here’s a reverb fix for you. This week’s rack uses Live Reverb’s Freeze function to generate the decay, allowing super long reverb tails and endless reverb when cranking the Decay all the way up. Also, it adds a M/S EQ for fine control of every aspect of your reverb’s tone.
