About a cute happy Korg MS family having good time together.
Please watch (and listen!) HQ if possible.

All sounds are produced live with the gear as seen in the video. No drum computers are used.
From left to right, top to bottom:
The MS-50 plays the kick drum. Also some of the MS-50 modules are used for other functions
The SQ-10 is programmed to play two sequencer patterns:
- A+B: 16-step pattern, tuned to play a melody (in the intro this pattern is also used for white noise filter modulations).
- C: 8-step pattern for filter modulations (percussion and bass)
The upper MS-20 starts with some white noise percussion, and is switched to play a melody after the intro. This MS-20 output is later on used as input sound for the vocoder. (There is a switch function programmed in this patch which allows me to switch instantly between the microphone or the synthesizer as input for the vocoder).
The VC-10 adds some great polyphony to the track and is used to process microphone as well as synthesizer sounds.
The lower MS-20 is used for percussion and uses SQ-10 channel C for filter modulations. Note the variations during the track in the rhythmic pattern and sounds just by using the filters.
The MS-10 plays a steady bass line. I planned to tweak the bass sound a bit more during the track, but I guess I was too busy :-)
The track is recorded and mastered using Ableton Live.
