Video description:

“Giving a new iPad app a try, called Phawuo — a subtractive mono synth that promised extremely dirty sounds, and definitely delivered. You won’t see it in action, but I had to play it live into the the sampler due to its lack of a sequencer, so there’s that.

Most of the sounds (minus the bass guitar and chime preset) came from the Phawuo app, sampled and effected on the Zoom SampleTrak ST-224 sampler seen in the video.

Unfortunately, a lot of the action isn’t in the frame. I’m using a mixer to cut tracks in and out with my right hand. My left hand can be seen cueing up each section of the song on the Yamaha QY70, going from Intro to Main A and the Ending. Also not immediately obvious is that the QY70 is controlling the sampler via MIDI. The QY70 can be a tricky sequencer to get the hang of, but I’ve been able to limp along with it, so far.”
