Queen of Coins | Endorphin.es Queen of Pentacles

OK, let’s do techno again. I know, one just doesn’t ‘do’ techno according to my friends on this channel. But techno’s are so much fun to do! So let me be the fool who doesn’t know and just do it. I’ll also share some tips you may find useful. The first part of the video is a techno build up, so it starts small. In the middle, there’s a quick section of how to prepare your own samples and in the last part, I’ll explore a tech-house fused with ethnic percussion. Let’s all keep both feet firmly on the ground and live long and prosper.

I did a few videos already featuring the new Queen of Pentacles, I’ve read the manual and tried to install some samples of my own. Learned a lot, so I want to share some of the beats you can do with this great module which is quicky becoming a personal favorite. I had a Blck_Noir before, but it wasn’t my cup of tea (because it basically had three modest sounds) so I sold it. This one, however, is going to stay. There are some videos out there that demo a ‘lame kick’ so I decided to start with that first. But that’s a matter of taste, tweaks and settings. The kick is actually the best part of this module. In the end, it’s all about the kick and this one is exactly was looking for.

If you compare this to a BitBox or other sample playback powerhouse I have to admit you don’t need a Queen if you have something like that. But it can still provide a solid foundation for you to work ‘around’. You could load different samples in BitBox, prepare transitions and pads, while the beat goes on. And it has to go on forever.

This video is not sponsored, but I like to thank Midi Amsterdam for saving one for me before it was sold out and Endorphin.es for making such cool gear with so much love – and lots of humor.

Endorphin.es Spaceship | Episode 13 | Cockpit 1U, Golden Master 1U & Milky Way 1U

Today the Endorphin.es 1U modules are launched and I had the privilege to make a launch video. If you have an Intellijel 1U row in your case, you may find this video of interest. If not, you may need one!

Endorphin.es made the modules compatible with Intellijel case outputs and I happen to have a Stealth 7U case. Unfortunately, I found out my -12V rail was broken so my ‘Spaceship’ couldn’t fly. I couldn’t make the video! So I had to improvise while waiting for a new TRS80W board to arrive from Canada. Intellijel support has been amazing, but the board would come too late. However, you can also make a cool video when things go wrong.

Endorphin.es started with TRS stereo outputs on the Grand Terminal, Cockpit & Blck_Noir, but then switched to dual mono from there on the Queen and the 6 HP series. This basically meant you had to use adapters. The Cockpit 1U solves all this. It has one TRS stereo input, and three dual mono inputs, duck/side chaining and a TRS stereo out. You can connect Cockpit 1U to Golden Master from the back, keeping cable clutter ‘internal’. It’s a joy to patch them up with any sound you can find.

Endorphin.es Two of Cups | Two channel sample player

Two-channel sample player

New Arrival! The Two of Cups is a two-channel sample player supporting pitch and sample selection with CV control. The knobs can be set to change the initial sample, pitch, and decay. 2OC comes with an SD card packed with sounds created by Julia Bondar, which include percussion, bass, and leads.

The 2OC is clearly designed to carry your ‘always used’ samples to complement a Queen of Pentacles or Blck_Noir drumkit, drones and leads. It seriously extends the sonlc abilities of a small system in only 6 HP of space. And ofcourse it pairs very well with the other 6 HP modules, especially the new Total Recall preset manager. The name Two of Cups refers to the Tarot card that celebrates a great relationship between two people in the fields of business and passion. It’s a lucky card!
