What’s my secret to making music? I let my Gummi Bear friends do it for me! Normally they are camera shy but today they let me take photos of them recording a song. There are 10 photos and captions in total so be sure to click “Continue…” to see them all!
Green and Red need some inspiration before they go back to making music so they lie down for a bit on a Roland SH3 synthesizer keyboard and stare at the studio’s acoustic cloud.
Yellow and Red team up and jam on a Vermona DRM1 MKIII drum machine. Yellow changes the resonance on the snare while Red messes with the highpass filter on the lazer zap.
Red supervises as Green and Yellow make changes on a Voice of Saturn analog sequencer. Red can be a bit bossy at times.
Using a computer and Ableton Live is a real challenge for Gummi Bears. Red and Yellow have to stand blind behind the Mighty Mouse and wait for Green to direct them.
The song is coming along nicely and Green and Yellow scale the Ultimate Support Systems A-Frame and then go high on top of the Yamaha CS5 synthesizer. Green tells Yellow something she already knows. He loves her.
Clear knows what is about to happen. He is contemplating diving off the speaker onto the M-Audio Oxygen 8 midi controller. If he hits one of the keys he could bounce and live. If not…
I hope you enjoyed this story. What’s your studio snack?
