Custom Fader Cap for Rane 56

When I got my first Rane 56 mixer, the fader had a very pointed triangular cap. I definitely preferred the square fader caps used by Vestax. So, with the help of a master craftsman (Jesse), I designed and built a few custom Rane 56 fader caps. These caps have square, smooth edges with a lightly sanded surface (for a soft touch type feel).

These loops were both performed live using the Electro Harmonix 2880 looper. The drums were scratched live (one loop for the kick and snare, one loop for the ride). The synth sounds are all played live with the Meeblip synth. No edits and no effects.

Thirdy - Flesh O.N.E.

This was an album I released in 2008. It’s a bunch of loops made with a lot of different tools and such. There’s some LSDJ Game Boy stuff on there, Roland PMA-5, SP1200, MPC2000xl, straight Fruity Loops, etc.. A bunch of different stuff…

Here’s a preview of a few beats:
