Reel Life – Instruo #Lubadh

When I first saw Lubadh on paper it reminded me of the Morphagene a bit, but after seeing a demo from designer Jason Lim (2 hours!) I just knew it was something completely different – and a perfect match for the music I love most. In Part 01 I’ll start with something simple, a pretty little melody from Endorphin.es Godspeed that gets recorded, dubbed and degraded by Lubadh into an ambient bed of sound.

Lubadh has a dedicated tape degradation and tape delay mode which are not used here because I wanted to keep the patching as simple as possible in part 01 of this series. In part 02 I will dive into all the features in a short reference guide. So in this video ‘degradation’ simply takes place by dubbing a recording with the tape saturation, compression and mild filtering from the module.

Harmonaig Poly

After building a mono patch with the Harmonaig and Strega, it’s now time to have some fun with three Plaits and the 1v/oct input of Arbhar. Music theory is very valuable when you need to compose something, but with Harmonaig, you can easily get away with not knowing any of it. I used Pressure Points to dial in a progression of four chords and used Marbles to add some variations.

Harmonaig Solo | with Strega

The Instruo Harmonaig (harmony) is designed to drive four voices into all kinds of chords and progressions. In this video I am using the Harmonaig to control Strega’s pitch and delay speed into some amazing new sounds.

So when you spend some time with the Witch, don’t forget to mult the pitch CV to the delay time. It’s fun! I’ll use the other two outputs to modulate Strega’s various destinations. Harmonaig gets her pitch CV from two Maths channels (LFO) and Wogglebug random pitch. I am using a middle eastern scale to make the patch it a bit more exotic.

Instruo Lubadh – Grand Theft Audio

With the Expert Sleepers ES-8 as an audio interface, I can basically grab and rip any audio on my PC so there’s a huge potential for samplers, granulators and loopers. But there’s also the risk of getting a copyright claim when you record/sample something that’s owned by a big name or label and decide to upload it. I know some artists have large teams protecting their works. The economy of music is changing and the audience expects music to be free. But you can’t create a great new album if you can’t even break even.

So if you ever copy original sound sources, make sure you use it fair and transformative.
