Video + Audio Demos

License to Bill Murray, solo by @b_a_t [1]

Hardware Jam Challenge (a group on FB) which topic 007. Execution is not perfect but the ZynSeq is really a great addition and makes it easier to play.

gr0k #008 Five Two Six, by @gr0k [2]

The samples in the track I shared were recorded by a fried whilst he was in Ireland in 2016. He used a shortwave radio and apparently needed a rather large antenna to pick up this station. The (conspiracy?) theory is that foreign intelligence services still use encoded messages like this because the recipient can be almost anywhere in the world, and receive instructions without fear of being traced through a phone call or Internet connection. This was from 12227khz which some claim is Russian Intelligence, tho this sample sounds British.

They were sequenced and played on the Zynthian using a sound font made on my computer. The static in the track comes from the same source and was recorded onto and played back via a four track.
