Here’s a clip of my first jam on my mobile eurorack recording setup! I had a great time and am looking forward to doing more of these. Here’s a peek behind the scenes for those interested:

Intellijel Performance Case mobile Eurorack recording setup

Mobile Eurorack Recording Rig:

Krisdonia 185Wh/50000mAh power bank

MOTU M2 audio interface for ADC and headphone monitoring

iPad running n-Track Studio for 24-bit 96k stereo recording

BYEASY USB hub which is required to distribute power to the M2

Apple Lightning to USB 3 Camera Adapter for an iPad or iPhone

Sennheiser HD 600 headpones

Intellijel 104hp 7U Performance Case

This setup can probably be simplified a bit if you have an iOS/Android device that runs off USB 3 directly since the Apple adapter and USB hub are only required for my devices Lightning port.

I think the iPad is overkill for this task and next time I’ll probably just use my iPhone. 2 Tracks don’t seem very demanding. 

I messed around for about 1 1/2 hours and the battery dropped from 100% to 75% which is plenty of juice for me. I’ve used a device to measure the power demands of my two Intellijel cases and it seems surprisingly low, so I suspect I can run them both off this power bank once I get a DC power splitter cable. I’ll be sure to report back once I get to try this.

Patch Notes:

A simple patch using Make Noise René 2 to sequence Mutable Instruments’ Elements, using the chord mode of the “ringified” firmware. I love the saturated pad sounds I’m getting out of this thing. There are no external effects and it sounds massive. There’s also a staccatto noise from Plaits run through Magneto that comes in from time to time.
