How To Make It

STEP 1 : Make your instruments!

Picture 1

Make a Keyboard: Keyboard + Oscillator + Filter Make a Sequencer: Micro Sequencer + Oscillator + Envelope + Delay Connect them: Power + Split (connect one wire to Mini Sequencer and other to Keyboard) + Mix + Synth Speaker

STEP 2 : Make a beat!

Use the tempo dial on the micro sequencer to find the right speed and adjust the nobs to make a kick/snare like pattern. Use the envelope the change the attack and decay of each beat and the delay to bring a polyrhythmic element.

STEP 3 : Solo on the keyboard!

The keyboard acts like the singer in your synth band. Use it to play a melody to compliment the beat from the micro sequencer. Use the filter to give your keyboard the proper voice.

STEP 4 : Rock out!

What other instruments can you bring into your synth band? What genre do you want your synth band to play? How cool will it be when your record gets Best New Music on Pitchfork?
