Man programs robots to create live drum & bass…

…and it’s actually pretty cool.

This is drum & bass piece performed live using an automated drum kit and other percussion, playing together with a selection of vintage and new analog synthesizers.

All the sound is being generated in real time, the analog synths coming through the main rack mixer and the robotic percussion being recorded by microphones.

List of the main gear used :

Modulars : Roland System 100m (sub bass), Roland System 700 (basses), Doepfer system (stabs and atmospheric sound).

Other Synths : Yamaha CS-10 (more basses), Studio Electronics Omega 8 (chords and atmospheric sound), Korg Monotron Duo (more basses).
