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:
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.
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.
