I recorded through an M-Audio Firewire 1814 into a Mac G5 running Ableton Live. All the sounds are from the VG-99—except for a few Live effects (phasing on one of the loops and some bit reduction on the noise loop).
Loop starts. You can hear me adjusting the LFO rate with the VG-99 ribbon controller.
Some sparse lead added with pitch-shift harmony.
Adding a phased version of loop.
Beat loop added and VG99 bass
Drums and solo added.
