#tenminutetuesday #mpcone #op1


In the first 10 Minute Tuesday beat in over 6 months I use the MPC One, OP-1, Moog iOS Apps, and the Roland JU-06a to make a drunken hip hop beat from scratch. I start it off with a basic drum beat using some samples I grabbed from Splice. I then add some chords from the Teenage Engineering OP-1. Once I laid those down, I hunted down a bass sound I liked from the Moog Model D iOS app. And just before the timer ran out I came up with a decent sounding lead with the Moog Model 15 iOS app.

After the timer went off, I came up with a new bass line, a drum fill to help break the loop up, and a new lead with the Roland JU-06a. Then I paired all that with the gnarly XYX FX and Mute Groups on the MPC One for a quick performance.

Plus I have finally launched my own merch! I’ve been working on coming up with some good t-shirt designs for literally years at this point so I’m extremely excited to finally have a line of 6 t-shirts featuring the Teenage Engineering OP-1, the Roland SP404 Sampler, and several more designs I hope you enjoy. Every order is printed, packed, and shipped by hand by ME.
