Dusty Feel | OP-1 + Modular Synth + Guitar


Published on May 31, 2017 Dusty Patches

"Patch Notes:

This track started on the OP-1. Percussion and some synth work was laid down on the tape. The CWO effect is also stabbed in a few times. The OP-1 is in sync mode and is sending a clock to the modular.

There are two voices coming from the modular. Loquelic Iteritas, heavily modulated by Pam's, is providing the bass synth. The other voice is Ataraxic Translation, in all it's arcadey goodness. Pressure Points is hooked up to the Ornament & Crime analog shift register. The first row of knobs sets the modulus (distance between adjacent notes), the second row sets the range or scale of the pattern, and the third row sets the frequency of 'pings'. I'm switching these different sets of parameters with the touchplates of PP and opening the VCA with the Gate button on Choices. The final element of the modular I'm interacting with is the joystick on Choices. The Three Sisters linked filters module is fed the signal from the three voices (OP-1, Loquelic, and Ataraxic) in its Low, Centre, and High inputs. The X axis controls the frequency sweep and the Y axis controls Quality, or Resonance.

The guitar is an 8-string Kiesel Vader V8 running through a custom patch on the Axe FX II. The vocals were processed with Manipulator VST. Everything was recorded and mixed in Reaper.

Thanks for listening."
