Flutter Noodle

Published on Jan 4, 2018 John L Rice

"While experimenting with polyphonic patches I recorded this little tidbit and made a video out of it along with some still shots of the patch.

There are four identical voices each using the following modules:
Synth Tech MOTM-300 VCO (pulse wave out)
Synth Tech MOTM-800 EG (for VCA modulation)
Synth Tech MOTM-190 dual VCA (1/2)
Moon Modular 517 dual VCF (1/2)
Moon Modular 511D ADSR (1/2) (for VCF modulation)
Synth Tech MOTM-380 quad LFO (1/4) for VCO PWM

The 4 voices are controlled via a Roland A-88 MIDI keyboard through a Synth Tech MOTM-650 quad MIDI to CV converter. The Moon 517 VCFs are additionally modulated by 4 outputs of a Krisp1 OCTO LFO which is itself modulated by a MOTM-320 LFO.

The "flutter" effect is created by switching the Moon 511D EGs to Gated Retrigger mode so that when a key is held down the EG that modulates the VCF channel for the associated voice goes into loop mode. Three of the voices loop at one rate and the fourth 'lead' voice is set to loop at a faster rate.

Effects used are Strymon BigSky and Timeline pedals, Roland RSP-550 multi effects rack and a touch of a Sony reverb plugin."
