Today’s composition was created with 70’s funk music in mind. I wanted to create a piece that I could sample back into my MPC Live to chop up and create another composition. I create this way to rid my work of royalty issues that arise from using samples.

Ali The Architect creating the 9 Clouds ModBap composition.

All sequences in this composition are driven by the Orthogonal Devices ER-101. The first element I created was the Dreamy guitar. This was created using Mutable Instruments Rings into a VCA controlled by Xaoc Devices Zadar with heavy modulation from Mutable Instruments Tides(2018) and Make Noise Maths, then ran into the Strymon Magneto. The second element created was the strings. I used  Mutable Instruments Plaits into a VCA controlled by Zadar again also with modulation from Tides then it goes to the Erica Synths Black Hole DSP. The Bass which is the 3rd element is the Pittsburgh Modular SV-1 with filer modulation from Maths. All Drums are coming from the MPC Live which are Chopped breaks that I created a kit out of.
