Drone Commander 2 Prototype + TR808

Grendel Drone Commander 2 Eurorack is in the works.. Now with CV-Gate and Clock inputs! In this recording of the prototype, it is sychronized to MIDI using a Vermona QMI. The Roland TR-808 is running with a Doepfer MSY2 MIDI-SYNC converter. (Dope riddims by Erich Ragsdale)

F-Sharp Fantasy

‘F-Sharp Fantasy’ .. All sounds in this track were created with the Grendel RA-9 Grenadier semi-modular analog synth. We used Reaper for MIDI sequencing, and a Vermona QMI for MIDI-CV conversion to control the Grenadier by CV-Gate. One Grenadier was used in creating this track, and the composition was built up in layers through overdubbing. Grenadier’s onboard trigger loop sequencer was used to alter the gate pattern of the bassline to add variation. The only non-stock sounds are the whispery percussion effects created by connecting a pink noise source to the Grenadier’s EXT.IN jack. 2015 Rare Waves LLC.

Bass Jam in E

‘Bass Jam in E’ .. All sounds in this track were created with the Grendel RA-9 Grenadier semi-modular analog synth. We used Reaper for MIDI sequencing, and a Vermona QMI for MIDI-CV conversion to control the Grenadier by CV-Gate. One Grenadier was used in creating this track, and the composition was built up in layers through overdubbing. The onboard analog sequencer was used to modify the LFO rate in rhythmic patterns. The only non-stock sounds are the whispery percussion effects created by connecting a pink noise source to the Grenadier’s EXT.IN jack. 2015 Rare Waves LLC.
