"An ambient aleatoric modular patch.

Noise Engineering Numeric Repetitor sending gate pulses to the Tonnetz Sequent which is sending (modulo) pitch cv to three Q106 vco's. Filtering and EG's are all and Oakley Audio.

A Flame Chord Machine is also used for pitch duties to three more Q106 vco's and a Mutable Instruments Rings.
There are doubling of the pitch data to a noise patch using a pink noise source and a pair of Q960 sequencer to control a cv FM Radio module to a CGS Real Ring Modulator then through a MOTM 440 LPF into an Encore Frequency Shifter. The FS is cv modulated by a 10v signal from MI Frames. The Down output of the FS is sent directly to Clouds right channel. The Up output of the FS is sent through a Makenoise Echophon in pitch shifting mode. It is 1v/oct controlled from a fourth channel out of the Flame Chord Machine. The feedback output of the Echophon is sent to the left channel input of Clouds the left output of Clouds is returned to the Echophon feedback input and the mix out is back into Frames via a Yusynth Minimoog filter.

Frames is amplitude modulating the Clouds outputs.

Loads of pseudo random voltage and gate timings from two Turing Machines and 4MS QCD. The main clock is from Cubase dinsync to a Pamela's Workout.

Intellijel Plog is used for a Malekko Switch module to shift the vco third and fifth cv's from the Tonnetz, and the input to the Chord Machine. It is also used to toggle the 2nd Tone factor on the Chord Machine.
Two Maths and a Quadra are employed to control timing to the Frames automation.

Other FX include a Z-DSP in Halls of Valhalla, a Behringer Chorus Space pedal and a Strymon Blue Sky pedal. A pair of Lexicon MX200's are used for subtle reverb and delay."

Patch Notes #16 - Arpeggios with Make Noise René

Published on Aug 28, 2016 Voltage Control Lab

"Patch Notes #16 explores our latest tutorial, using René as an arpeggio sequencer to create complex chord progressions and musically interesting improvisations on them.

Make Noise Tempi is mult-ed out to the René X-clock input (stepping through the chord root notes), and another output at 4 times the clock rate is routed to the cycling channel 4 on Maths, then out to the Y-clock input on René (stepping up the “arpeggiated” chord tones). The QCV output is routed to the pitch input and the Y-gate output is routed to the gate input on the 0-Coast, which is routed out the Malekko Mix4.

The mult-ed clock sent to René is also sent to Brains/Pressure Points, one channel of which is routed to the 1v/Oct input on the main oscillator of the DPO. The final output is routed to the MMG in low pass mode, then to an open channel on the Optomix (which isn’t really doing anything to the signal, actually). The modulation oscillator is in Sync mode, the main osc expo FM attenuator is at noon, as is the FM bus knob. A looped channel from the ADLFO is routed to the Fold section input. Optomix out to the Mix4.

Another channel on Tempi is routed to clock the Ornament & Crime in Piqued mode, generating a Euclidean rhythm with fluctuating fill amounts modulated by another looping channel on the ADLFO. The O&C rhythm is routed to channel 1 on Maths, which is then controlling the second channel on the Optomix. The Both input is being modulated by yet another looping ADLFO channel. Braids is routed through Ripples LP2 mode (FM modulated by another ADLFO channel), and into the Optomix channel. Braids is in Meta mode, the FM input modulated by the stepped random output from the Wogglebug (also clocked via Tempi), the pitch modulated by the smooth random output. The Timbre and Color are modulated by the Malekko Anti-Oscillator in LFO mode, the triangle output to Color, Mayhem to Timbre. This is producing the glitchy percussive rhythms.

Two channels from Tempi are routed to clock and reset the Malekko Varigate. One channel on the Varigate is sent to the Envelator, which is modulating the Dual Borg kick drum we’ve explored before. A second channel is triggering the snare from the Noise Engineering Basimilus Iteritas.

Everything is routed through the Mix4 and then through the Mutable Instruments Warps delay in the Parasite alt firmware."

Yamaha CS-80 Synthesizer SN 1474

via this auction

"This unit is of later production (SN: 1474) and is very stable and in great shape. The only issue is with three adjacent keys: C#, D and D# 5 (upper-most register): These notes play as they should, but the aftertouch is intermittent and the volume is occasionally louder as compared to the rest of the keyboard. This may be a problem with the pressure sensors underneath those keys, a wiring issue, or an issue with an associated logic chip. Other than that, there are no problems with the synth; it sounds fantastic after it warms up, and all 8 voices (16 really) blend with the expected fatness! All features, sliders, switches, presets, etc. work as they should."

Live Synth Jam 45 : Microkorg & PO-12

Published on Aug 28, 2016 Todd Smith

"Bandcamp Link :

Support my music by visiting my Bandcamp.

I left my camera mic on during recording, sorry about that. The only thing you can hear is me cracking my knuckles, lol. This is my final jam in Spokane,WA and most likely the final jam in this format.

I plan to evolve my jams by making them a lot more personal in the future. I plan to have face to face intro's and tutorial based endings explaining the process in which the jam was created. This is just one of the many ways I plan to evolve my channel !!

In this jam I use only a Teenage Engineering PO-12 and Korg Microkorg. I use Ableton Live to multi track a few background tracks and clip changes. I recorded a simple 4 measure Microkorg chord and a 1 measure Teenage Engineering PO-12 drum loop. I used the filter from Ableton Live on the Teenage Engineering PO-12 to create a simple change in the drum sound. I played the Microkorg live over these multi tracked recordings and triggered them via clips in Ableton Live.

: Gear Used :

Korg Microkorg
Teenage Engineering PO-12
Tascam US-144mkII Audio Interface
Waves Supertap 6 ( VST )
Waves TrueVerb ( VST )

Electribe 018 // Processed drums 02

Published on Aug 28, 2016 Computing.Sound

"A simple drum pattern on the Korg Electribe 2 processed by two guitar pedals.

First the TC Electronic Flashback delay set to Ping Pong mode.
Dry/Wet amount and delay time are modulated by hand. Feedback is set very high.

Second the Zoom MS70CDR used for pitch shifting, bit reduction and also adding a slight ambience.

LO-FI effect on the Zoom MS70CDR:
To achieve the simple bit reduction/crushing and samplerate reduction I used the LO-FI Delay algorithm.
Set delay and feedback the lowest and the mix to the highest amount possible.
Then I adjusted samplerate and bit depth to my liking
Blend was set to 100.
It is also possible to add dampening and filtering to tame the rawness of the signal."
