Titan's Point with Moog Mother 32 and Korg SQ-1

"Over Thanksgiving weekend I found myself at my Mom's house holed up in the bedroom I grew up in, so I brought along a few toys and made this music and video.
I programmed the M32's sequencer first, then I patched in the SQ-1 in random mode to the CV input of the M32's filter cutoff to get that sample and hold sound.
The M32's LFO square output is patched into the SQ-1 sync in to control the SQ-1 sequence speed. The LFO can go a lot faster than the SQ-1's internal sync clock, so this allows me to speed it up a lot more if I want, plus I like controlling it from the M32's panel.
I patched th SQ-1's output voltages through the M32's VC Mix so I could roll the sample and hold effect in or out.
The audio path is:
M32...Outlaw Effects Quick Draw Analog Delay...Mooer Shim Verb...TC Electronic Ditto Looper...Korg SR1 recorder
There's also a Bananana Effects Wormhole delay (the yellow pedal) in the chain but for this clip I didn't use it.
Once I had everything set up I just improvised it from there and recorded it in one take. Video was recorded using a Polaroid Cube attached to the side of my headphones. My mom saw me doing this and thought I looked like a nerd, which is accurate.
