Blacet 2100 VCO +or 1 Octave Shift mostly monotone

Published on Feb 14, 2013 Nicholas Keller

"I decided to run the 1V/Oct MAQ16/3 sequence to an A-156 Dual Quantizer to a manual switch before routing it to the Blacet 2100 VCO input. This way the pattern could focus on the root note and the Octave Shift. I switch back and forth between straight one-note sequence and the Octave Shift so you can hear the difference. Transposing of the one-note rhythm begins at about 4m08s. The Octave Shift is modified by a Ramp LFO with reset."

"Have a listen to 'Take My BreathAway' (Mylo Remix) by The Knife. At around the 2 minute mark, it almost sounds like Mylo is changing the Octave setting of whatever synth is being used while the sequence is running. I imagined I could do this using the Blacet VCO's +/-1 Octave input and a bi-polar joystick like a Doepfer A-174.

My version uses samples from the original, but I reprogrammed the synth line to play from my modular using the Blacet 2100 VCO, an A-115 Audio Divider, and with +/-1 Octave control from a joystick."
