Muzik 4 Machines Live @ Festival Eureka

i prepared 100 times too much for the gig we did, even bought a second loop sampler that remained unused, people just don't care as long as they can ruin the song by hitting the kaoss pads and kaossilator, one of the worst experience ever (kids with dirty hands touching my expensive gear and sticking it with sunscreen and ice cream, disgusting)

some parts when we play only me and Dj.Ool (violin) are pretty good, but as soon as someone from the public touches a machine, it's the crappiest thing you'll ever hear, so please don't comment on how it's out of key/out of beat as most of the uber crap you'll hear is 5 years old bashing on my kaossilator like if it was a toy

-Electric violin
-Boss harmonizer
-Ibanez tube screamer
-Boss sampler and delay
-Dod Volume
it then goes in the Kaoss Pad 2 and then in the mixer where it's fed to the Soundbite Pro (bass) and to the Kaoss Pad 3 (other parts)

-Korg Kaossilator into
-Korg Mini Kaoss pad(mini KP) then summed to mono into a samson guitar wireless then in the mixer where it goes to be sampled by the soundbite (drums and backbeat elements) and Kaoss pad 3(leads, pads)

-Korg Kaoss Pad 3: "lead" looping (parts that can be washed in delay, fx)
-Redsound SoundBite Pro: Backbeat/drums//bass looping
-Korg Kaoss Pad 2: filtering/delaying/mashing up the violin
-Korg Electribe SX (ESX1): mostly unused besides drum sounds (ie, the show is not pre programmed into the electribe, I use it to program live drum loops, trigger a couple of drum loops/synth sounds(that are then recorded to the soundbite/KP3))

-Motu Midi Mixer 7s: you'll probably never see it, t's built into the rack below the machines) controlled by:
-Behringer BCF-2000

The whole mix was then fed into a DBX MC6 compressor to the house PA (the videos are uncompressed, unmastered feed from the chain out of the mixer, the MP3s are mastered into a digital audio workstation(DAW).)
