lead berry research - pk2pk

"pk2pk" is an expression from signal analysis meaning "peak to peak" as in the full swing of an analogue waveform.

This project came about with the acquisition of an old Tascam
22-4 quarter inch reel to reel recording deck. The concept
was to create a set of minimal tech noire tracks
using as a maximum 4 instruments.

There were no computers involved, which at the time
was an humiliation, is now something to be proud
of. The complement of instruments consisted
of Roland CR-8000 and TR-606 drum
machines; both playing and
executing timing

The bass lines and lead lines were hand played on variously
a Roland Jupiter-4, SH-101, SH-09, Sequential Circuits
Six-Trak, a PAIA Fatman and a Korg Poly-6. The
tape stock was Ampex 456 and this accounts
for the hearty sound and the
tape hiss.

The effects array consisted of Boss DSD-2 delay,
PH-2 phaser and Ensoniq DP4.
