I confess, despite experiments and excursions into ambient, techno, chill beats etc - at my core I’m most interested in writing “songs” not “pieces”. The traditional kind, Verse-Chorus-MiddleEight kind of songs with lyrics. After all I came into music as a singer/songwriter/bands etc. Wanting to push the envelope a little has made me look out for new tools, new sounds and new workflow - and since spring(?) I’ve been an Organelle (mkI) owner.
Yet, so far I haven’t made much music with the Organelle. I guess, I don’t seem to find a way to incorporate it in my workflow. Or I haven’t had time enough to experiment. Still, I want to like it, and I appreciate the concept so I’m not ready to pass it on just yet.
So, I’d just thought I ask to hear if there are any other songwriting “traditionalists” out there. And I’d be curious to hear how/at what stage you use the Organelle in your process. Organelle is almost limitless in its possibilities and can take a new role with every patch. On the other hand, fast studio workflow often seem to lead to producers choosing one-trick-ponies (or devoting one machine for a specific task).
What’s your main use for Organelle? As an idea-generator, instrument or fx/processing? Or even stand-alone workstation?
Thanks! - and Merry Christmas!
