AniModule JibberJabber : TikTok Assembly : Solderside chat

Published on Dec 7, 2017 JRock17991

"Check out me modules :
Just a little jibberjabber session about this and that while I solder a TikTok together" Shuttle quick demo

"2 tracks only improvisation on the Shuttle Eurorack modular set up as a 2 voice synth, 1st voice played over USB, 2nd tuned by hand using the frequency knob. Built-in Shuttle FX used.
Light EQ and limiting on the master only, rough and ready late night headphone mix.

Barely scratching the surface of this after only a day, so much more to explore but what a sound!"

Another Chill track with MS-20, monologue, Mopho, Virus, Volcas, X5DR and Novation KS4 + EMX-1

Published on Dec 7, 2017 Arrayzable

"This is the last piece of the music trilogy 'Hathaway', 'Lewis' and 'Morse'
They all share a similar theme. D minor, tempo of 69 and instruments and also a lot of sounds are being used again and again, so the three different tracks will hopefully sound same-ish even though they have variations in the chord progressions.
This last track uses the 'SLEEVE' progression known from alot of songs and melodies like 'Green Sleeves', 'Love Song' by the Cure - well, they are almost the same :)

I hope you will enjoy listening to all three track as much as I have enjoyed playing them!"

You can find all three here on MATRIXSYNTH by searching on Chill track Arrayzable.

Filter overdrive sounds fantastic. Very easy to overdrive the filter into insanity."

Future Sound Systems Gristleizer - TG4 Modulator - Chris Cater, Roy Gwinn and Finlay Shakespeare

Published on Dec 7, 2017 DivKidVideo

"Here's the first in a series of a few videos on the new Eurorack Modular Synth modules based on the Gristleizer as used by Chris Carter from Throbbing Gristle. Roy Gwinn (who designed the original circuit in 1970s) and Chris Carter have worked with Finlay Shakespeare of Future Sound Systems to update and expand on the original Gristleizer with many updates and extras for the modular format.

This video is on the TG4 Modulator, which is the VCA in the series. But it's a highly characterful, drive, saturation and distortion module as well."

7 12 17 Cocoquantus 2 - Impro

Published on Dec 7, 2017 batchas

"I finally got to play again with the Cocoquantus during this cold night of december.

I was checking some old mics and piezos I was using 2 decades ago for my live acts and sent some notes from the kalimbas into the Cocoquantus input. Loop. Speed tweaking. Endless.
First time I also had the Plumbutter playing with his companion from Ciat Lonbarde.
I was enjoying the sound and decided to pick up quickly the camera (not holding it right as there is the computer in the front + many other DIY things in the way!)."

Published on Dec 7, 2017 LOOK MUM NO COMPUTER

"- Vocal loop goes into electro harmonix 45000, which also has a homemade passive mute pedal! and a reverb and a vocal transformer in its loop. so you can bring it in and out, send one side of the outs to pitch up and also reverb and stuff. That mic is phantom power, annoyingly i lost my phantom power box, so i had to run it through a mixer just to power it!, but when in headphones, its worth having a more crisp vocal than an sm58. and my SM7's capsule has broken (if your reading this and distribute shure mics,,, pleeeeease can i have a new capsule for my SM7, they cost nearly as much as the mic to replace!) :) :) :).
-the bass line is sequenced by the beatstep pro. The keyboard has a rotary switch that can select between midi channels 1-4 channel 1 and 2 go to the first beatstep (the only one im using in this video) channel one is the bass line, so i play it in and the beatstep records it, youll notice the riff is 128 steps long, so i had to half the speed of that sequence and pplay half time as the beatstep can only do 64 steps.
then i flicked over to midi channel 2, the step was set to 6 steps long, and i recorded in some notes in the Am chord as an arperggio kinda thing.
- the presets to make it suddenly go big are explained at the end of the video!
-I added a band pass to the kick module last which which i can switch on and off, really useful to bring the lows out and sweep up to build to a "drop"
-the juno is going through a vca gate, which is triggered by a trigger out on the beatstep. just wack the release to max, and to the second poly mode (what makes the juno 106 a million times better than the juno 6 and 60), which then removes the last played notes
-the beatstep is utilising all of its 16 drum trigger outs with a piece of arduino code which is touched on in a zine on my patreon!"

Critter & Guitari - LFO Delay for Organelle

Published on Dec 7, 2017 Critter & Guitari

"Download here:
LFO Delay is an audio effect for the Organelle. Process incoming sounds with a plentitude of modulation. There are two delay lines controlled by independent LFOs, a sequencer to automate delay time ratio and feedback, a maximum delay time control and a dry/wet control. Use this effect for an evolving chorus/flanger or go wild with drastic delay bends. Freeze an LFO by turning its rate down for a sustained delay time."
