The Healing

Meditative track with drums, but not for sleeping ;)
The song is made with my little Doepfer A100 Modular System, the Korg Kaoss Pad 3 and Access Virus C. The drums are coming from the A100 and routed to the Kaoss Pad.

Where to buy the mp3 music file ?

scratching potis at a Sherman Filterbank

Got an used Sherman Filterbank some days before. While turning the potis a bad scratching destroyed all my fun, so i decided to look if i can prepare to avoid it. First problem were the extrem hard tightened screws at the back. One must be bored up. Next problem was that the main board is tightened at the top of the housing, and not at the bottom. Even some screws of the mainboard were tightened to hard, so i decided to let it in to avoid destroying by accidend with my screwdriver.
A big failure was to use cotton buds for cleaning. At the potis there's a lot of fat and little hairs of the cotton buds stayed there. So i had to remove at first my own dirt. Then i tried to clean the potis rotary as well as possible with my little finger, paper and a small dental brush. Absolute fucking work because the space is too small. At last i used some Sterilium with the small dental brush. The next step was to clean the potis arm at the outside of the housing and also the housing by itself.
Yeah, it works now and i hope it isn't only for a short time :)
