Jay Hosking: Full-tilt jam with Novation AFX Station and Tracker

Artists | What's up May 06, 2022

"It turns out that the Tracker is one of those devices that I love more and more every time I use it."

“It had been a while, and I just got a battery pack for USB gear, so I thought I’d take the Tracker for another spin. It turns out that the Tracker is one of those devices that I love more and more every time I use it. Songwriting is getting faster on it, and its performance effects are my current favorite for getting wild with drum parts. Rearranging the sequence allows a level of complexity that you just can’t get with a beat repeat! And the fact that you can then take those performance effects and apply them to other tracks instead makes the Tracker extremely flexible and fun for making jams.”

“I added the AFX Station at the last minute because I wanted something I could play notes on, and because I wanted something melodic to end the track. The AFX Station is just the right sound, size, and shape for a jam with the Tracker, and its filter and drive are (in my opinion) underrated. It may just be a Novation Bass Station II in disguise, but it’s an awesome analog mono synth.

Polyend Tracker – Sequencing, sampling, sample player, effects Novation AFX Station – Mono synth (running through the Tracker for reverb and delay).

Performed and recorded live to a stereo output, with EQ, compression, and limiting on the master.”
