Live recording of original song "I am gonna wait" with Ruismaker and Model D (and guitar and vocals)

edited April 16 in Creations

I've been slowly working on a new solo music repertoire and figuring out how to play it live with a minimum of gear.

This video is a new song, called "I am gonna wait", performed and recorded live in one take as if I would be on stage.

Drums by Bram Bos' Ruismaker, running in the background and bass by the Minimoog Model D app being triggered by LinnStrument's step sequencer, whose patterns I schedule in real time through foot switches.

Please let me know what you think!

  • Sounds nice :) Great singing and playing....and a very reserved Model D

    I didn't realise Linnstrument had a step sequencer mode too.....how many channels can it sequence ? That looks like a very useful setup for guitar players...or actually anyone who needs their hands free for an instrument.

    Thanks! :smile:

    LinnStrument has got 2 independent step sequencers, each with 4 patterns, each pattern up to 32 steps and up to 4 events per step (including note, velocity, timbre, duration and pitch offset). You could see those events as channels, or as polyphonic steps. All this can be saved in a project and LinnStrument internally saves up to 16 projects (you can export/import to computer if you want).

    The guitar player use case is exactly why I wanted to add the step sequencer to LinnStrument (ie. I needed one and didn't want to add another piece of gear while hardware-wise LinnStrument already did everything necessary).

    The LinnStrument 128 is a really great deal IMHO, with everything that it offers and terms of expressive playing and sequencing.

  • Love the vibe of your song here. It calls to mind the mysterious Nick Drake a bit for me. B)
    That Linnstrument still looks like it came from the future.

  • Very good song, and good performance. Great vocal. Nice.

    Wow, thank you for that. I'm a long time big fan of Nick Drake! :smile: :smile: :smile:

  • Nice sounds.

  • Darn fine song! I really like the equipment and the software setup.

  • Nice song. Would be better with just voice and guitar IMO.

  • Damn good tune, great lyrics, I personally wanted to hear a passionate solo breaking through what felt like a box.

    How are you capturing vocal and guitar sound Geert?

    For vocals I'm using a Neumann KMS 105 in this video and for the guitar a single CharterOak M900T, both going into a Metric Halo ULN-8 audio interface.
