Ambient track produced from a couple George Strait samples on the EPS. Damn, that is a deep keyboard. Not even software samplers come close to what it could do with built in functionality.
Recorded to cassette tape in the early summer of ’10 in Anacortes, WA.
Thanks again, Karl.

Straight from the MS2000 faceplate to tape one evening in the red house. This ambient track is dedicated to the struggle inside all of us.

Alright let’s do this.
Wrapping up the RedHouseGreenHouse collaborations with an illbient-reggaecide-tone-swathing. Same as before, EPS + nylong guitar, and that’s it. The sequencer in the EPS is pretty fun to use, and really gets 80s on ya once you quantise.
Work with what ya got.
Blog about it.

Call this one distorto-digital-hybrid-soft-fuzz from Anacortes, WA. EPS + Nylon guitar only went into this one, pretty much done entirely by Rocky, and recorded to cassette.

More EPS noodlings from the Red House studio. This one features a break from a Violent Femmes record I picked up for like 25 cents from the Red Door. Jealousy ensued over that record but whatever it’s ok, and it def had this one great break on it. Dig how the sample interpolation just destroys the sound.

In honor of the newly resurrected Ensoniq EPS (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yM2o0W5Y0pI), here is more dirty tape from the Red House. This one features Karl Blau doing dubstep.
The cool thing about the EPS, is that the LFOs are key dependent…you can hit a key, get the LFO going, then alter the LFO, hit another key, and as long as you hold down both notes, you can hear both LFOs going independently. I don’t know another synth/sampler that does that. So anyway, this was a two man, 10 finger collaboration.

Meant to record my radio broadcast today and use that as fridays track, but that will have to wait til next week (I’m in the process of moving…everything’s all over the place).
More tiny random ambient noise jam via the Red House. This one probably has the most ‘friday jam’ feel to it out of all of these little studies.

This is one that my buddy Rocky and I threw together one spring day in Anacortes. Another friend of ours had donated a superbly awesome keyboard sampler, the Ensoniq EPS, and these short few lo-fi tracks came out of the first breaths that machine took in our studio.
We weren’t sure how to or even if this thing would work, and all we had for a sound source was my recently pick-up’ed nylon guitar. So every sound is from that guitar.
Major props to Rocky.
