Off-grid sound

I started using hardware for music production when I was a teen. My first synthesizer was a Microkorg, back in the 90’s. Fast foward twenty 20 years of life or whatever, and I’m back at it. Hardware has evolved quite a bit, even in the analog spectrum.

One thing that hasn’t changed, is how it enables you to remove distraction, and encourages focus and creativity, because of it’s inherit limitations.

Recently, I’ve decided to further remove distraction by building a mobile setup. Which I can then bring miles upon miles away from screens, cellphone service, and civilization as a whole. While we could probably call this a “beta” version; It was a nice escape to get out to the middle-of-nowhere-Colorado, on an offshoot of Rollins Pass — a fairly famous and historically significant Jeep trail outside of Rollinsville Colorado.

Shown above is my Elektron Analog Rytm MKII, which is taking input from a Sony PCM-D100field recorder, and going in to a Sound Devices MixPre-6 II.

Show below, is the rest of the adventure.
