Future Retro Transient Demos

Published on May 14, 2017 FutureRetroSynths


1. Future Retro Transient K Factor 1 Preset

"The K Factor preset in the Transient allows an external CV signal to select the sample to play for both voices. Knob K1 affect the offset for modulation both oscillator waveforms, and knob K2 adjusts the frequency of the modulation oscillators. This then allows you to morph or fade between two samples to create all sorts of fills, transitions, and variations.

How long can you tweak a preset? The results are nearly endless."

2. Future Retro Transient K Factor 2 Preset - same description as above.

3. Future Retro Transient ForeverOn Preset

"This video starts out with the RUOK preset. This preset is entirely randomized, producing a different sound each time a new Trigger is received. The ForeverOn preset is partially randomized with more control over other aspects of the sound. Both of these presets show some of the capabilities for use in "glitch" type music."

4. Future Retro Transient MellowDayz Preset

"Close your eyes and you might make the mistake that you are listening to analog percussion sounds coming from the EMS Synthi 100. In fact all sounds generated here are just the Transient. The MellowDayz preset demonstrates how you can 'tune' the rhythm much more quickly than dialing up sounds and generating patterns on traditional drum machines."

5. Future Retro Transient Various Presets

"This video demonstrates several presets in the Transient. Some of these presets show some of the sound effects the Transient can generate, while others show beat-making presets."

6. Future Retro Transient triggered with a Microphone and Oscillator

"For fun I hooked up a microphone to a little mixer, then ran the output of the mixer into the Transient's Trig In jack. After adjusting the output level of the mic, why yes you can trigger the Transient sounds with audio such as clapping or snapping your fingers. If that works, why not try talking into the mic? Well at times it is almost intelligible, and would probably sound better mixing the dry signal of my voice with the Transient's output.

And then I test out just how fast the Transient will respond to audio rates using the Oscillator from the XS routed to the Transient's Trig In. Often more interesting if the oscillator is being modulation by some additional source, as I am doing here with the LFO from the XS.

And finally I show it can be fun to take and LFO syncing to our clock, and change the rate of the LFO controlling the mix of voices in the Transient.

I'm sure there are lots of interesting results you will obtain with the Transient being controlled by the plethora of modules you already have in your Eurorack system."
