urm, i left it a couple of days (a week maybe) and checked back on my dronefadce tracks (which are part of the Dronelab soundcloud group: http://soundcloud.com/groups/drone-lab-music
there’s been a bit of activity, a few plays and downloads (i chose to allow my tracks to be downloadable, available under CC and public – not private). this spurred me on as i felt like things have been received quite well.
so here’s DR003:
equipment list first:
Dronelab V2 >
Alesis AMPLITION
BOSS KM-60
BOSS DELAY MACHINE DM-100
ZOOM STUDIO 1202
and this was recorded via my new MOTU 828, though i still need to get to grips with this a bit more as i don’t seem to have a full grasp on the buses and recording channels…
anyway:

here’s the equipment list:
Dronelab V2 >
Alesis BITRMAN
Roland RE 201 SPACE ECHO
Roland SBF 325 STEREO FLANGER
BOSS RPS 10 PITCH SHIFTER / DELAY

ok, so i’ve finished the dronelab and done my first recording.
i took a bit of time to get comfy with the beast, plugged in some effects and set the lappy recording.
here’s the first fruit of this, recorded using the following:
Dronelab V2 >
Alesis BITRMAN
Roland RE 201 SPACE ECHO
Roland SBF 325 STEREO FLANGER
BOSS RPS 10 PITCH SHIFTER / DELAY
straight out into Audacity in the computer through the trusty mic socket.

dronelab? finished

(bit of a retrospective post session)
I have managed to get the Dronelab finished, finally!
the last bits arrived from Mouser (dial caps and switches), then i realised i’d missed out on picking up a voltage reg cos it wasn’t in the parts list on caspertronics site…. so i got an expensive one from Craplin (Maplin).
i was a little bit anxious about switching it on for the first time but needn’t have worried ‘cos this thing kicked into life and has been doing a top job since!

overall i reckon it took about 5 or 6 hours, i think, to solder together, don’t know how long it took to source and organise all the parts though.
i am mega-chuffed with it though and seriously think it is worth the effort, it can create a good range of sounds, more than i anticipated – together the Tremelo, Distortion and Band Pass Filter stuff makes all the difference (i guess without modding the thing). sounds range from solid thunderous drone to ticky & clicky rhythms.

i will be doing some recordings and will post them asap.
in the meantime…
drooooooooooooooonnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnneeeeeeeee!
