Mothership Transmission: Basimilus Acid from Joseph Fraioli on Vimeo.
"trigger shifting using the delptronics triggerman and 4ms SCM as trigger sources with shifting modifications coming from the SSF propagate and 4ms SCM breakout.
slight changes to the parameters of these modules slowly change the shift of the patterns over longer periods. this is achieved by modulating the SSF propagates master delay modulation and enable inputs then outputting those triggers to the 4ms SCM to be further shifted using the SCM breakout and then fed into the 4MS RCD for additional triggering.
kick: blue lantern asteroid bd v4
snare: make noise mysteron modulated by the mod can quad lfo > Make Noise erbe verbe moded by an intellijel dixie.
hats: SSF quantum rainbow > Modcan Dual Delay. dual delay moded by an SSF ultra random analog.
acidy bass: Noise Engineering Basimilus Iteritas in bass mode >make noise MMG> mungo d0 with macro machines storage strip sequenced by the 4ms scm. pitch controlled by pressure points which is triggered by the 4ms SCM and pitch quantized by the intellijel upscale. modulation sources from a doepfer a147 and modcan quad lfo.
sparse melodic bass thing in first half: make noise DPO >Make Noise MMG > TipTop ZDSP with halls of Valhalla card. pitch sequencing by the TipTop z8000. modulations from a make noise maths channel and SSF ultra random analog.
end ambience: qu-bit nebulae > RT60. WMD SSM used as a mute. granulated sound source is a piano melody.
no computers or external hardware were used in this performance :)"

"This demo features the Roland R-8 drum machine (w/ "Dance" card, featuring a few of the sounds of the Roland CR-78 and TR-808 Hand Clap), Cyclone Analogic Bass Bot TT-303 (as you can guess by the looks of it, a Roland TB-303 clone) bass synth and Korg Synthepedal filter module. The first portion of the video features the normal sound of the TT-303, then, the 303 ran through the Synthepedal. The Synthepedal is a bandpass filter similar to those found in the very early Korg analog synths (770, 800dv, etc) with an envelope follower to track incoming audio. The envelope modulation affects both the high and lowpass filters at the same time creating a fairly unique squelching sound that suits the 303 very well. All of the hardware is mixed on my Studiomaster Pro Line mixer (I am using the multi outs of the R8 to to control the levels of each drum separately via the mixer). On the aux busses I have a DOD R-845 Spring Reverb and a Washburn A-09 Analog delay.
The Synthepedal was modified by the previous owner. If anyone has some original spare Korg knobs/sliders around (early Korg prefered but even if it's MS-20/Polysix-ish) I am interested!"

"The Korg X-911 is a very underestimated synth. What it was intended to be, was a stand alone guitar synthesizer. What it now represents, in these enlightened times, is an all analog, quite unique, signal processor/effects unit. Whereas a true guitar synth really requires its own dedicated pickup arrangement, this unit simply accepts a standard 1/4" jack input. Just patch your guitar, microphone, or other instrument into the X-911 and play one note at a time. Sporting both CV/Trigger inputs AND outputs, these features alone, make it quite a useful little toy."
"Module A-160-2 is an enhanced version of the standard clock divider A-160. The module is a frequency divider for clock/trigger/gate signals, designed to be a source of lower frequencies, particularly for rhythm uses. The Clock input will take any digital signal from, eg., an LFO, MIDI sync, or the gate from a MIDI-CV interface. At the outputs, you have access to three sets of seven different sub-divided clock signals, from half the clock frequency down to 1/128. The low/high levels of the output signals are 0V and about +10V.
The A-160-2 also has a reset input. Whenever a reset signal is sensed, all outputs are set to certain levels which depend upon the selected mode.
These are the most important features of the module:
Three different sets of dividing factors, selected by a three-position switch at the front panel:
power of two: 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128
prime numbers: 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17
integer: 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8
Two output modes, selected by a two-position switch at the front panel:
Gate mode: outputs act like the outputs of typical binary dividers
Trigger mode: in this mode the outputs are AND-wired with the clock signal (i.e. the clock pulsewidth affects the pulsewidth of the outputs)
Clock edge type selected by a jumper on the pc board:
positive: the rising edge of the clock signal triggers the state change of the outputs
negative: the falling edge of the clock signal triggers the state change of the outputs
Reset behaviour by two jumpers on the pc board:
level triggered: the level at the Reset input triggers the Reset
edge triggered: the edge of the signal at the Reset input triggers the Reset
positive: a high level (> 2.5V) or the rising edge at the Reset input triggers the Reset
negative: a low level (< 1 V) or the falling edge at the Reset input triggers the Reset Output polarity selected by a jumper on the pc board: positive: non-inverted outputs negative: all seven outputs are inverted"
