Patch Notes #33 - For Mojo

Published on May 23, 2017 Voltage Control Lab

"Yesterday, I had to make the difficult decision to put my sweet kitty of 18 1/2 years to sleep. This is dedicated to Mojo, the best friend and synth cat I could have wished for.

Make Noise Pressure Points is controlling the chord quality on the Music Thing Chord Organ, which is routed through one channel of Mutable Instruments Clouds and out to the mixer.

Make Noise Rene is controlling the pitch on Mutable Instruments Braids, which is routed through Ripples and on to the other channel on Clouds. Make Noise Tempi is clocking the Moffenzeef Deviant which is lightly randomizing the color control in Braids.


So sad. Condolences to Voltage Control Lab. This is a beautiful tribute. It goes unsaid how much pets mean to us, and how much they become part of us. When we lose them, we lose part of ourselves. The best ones always have your back. I wish we could all be more like our pets.

You might remember The River from this previous post. You'll find some demos there as well. That version was red on white. This one as you can see is a matte black. I spotted these on sequencer.de.

"For today's field trip, Wilma took us to the Columbia Gorge for some sunrise atmospheres centered around the Clouds. I decided to fully commit to the modular world and found a beautiful case to fit the bill. Patch Notes below

Jomox Sunsyn Patches

Published on May 23, 2017 Perfect Circuit Audio

"The Jomox Sunsyn is a peculiar but formidable synthesizer. With eight voices with two analog oscillators each, the Sunsyn is capable of everything from wispy ethereal pads to unreal, destructive basslines. Among its more peculiar features are two 'Ramp Controlled Oscillators,' basically short wavetables that you can modulate with the same flexibility and reliability of tracking as an analog VCO. Various means of animating these RCOs are part of what gives the Sunsyn its unique sound: something between a PPG Wave and any number of classic monosynths. The other remarkable feature is its filter section: with four individually addressable poles, an enormous number of filter topologies can be emulated, for everything from acid squelch to fizzy bandpass to Moog-like thump. Here, we explore some of the different types of sounds the Sunsyn does well: analog keys, pads, and odd, digital glitchy things that resist labeling."

"Todays #soundsketch was a little different for me. Trying my hand at some slimmed down and slightly swung techno.
MPC1000 and Moog RME do this quite well.
