System Cartesian - castle mountain

Published on Feb 16, 2018 Jae Ryan

"I wanted to explore AM synthesis a little more and dig in to the sounds of the Buchla I fell in love with when I borrowed it. Also the sounds of Cortini's Forse which was a huge influence in me getting addicted to west coast and modular synthesis in general.

I'm running the STO through the modDemix but using the Telharmonics phase output as the modulator. This gives the AM modulation a bit of the tone of the six step sequence and adds a little movement. Otherwise it's a fairly straight forward synth patch with the Woggle doing some FM on the STO and the random out from it negatively triggering the decay on the bass synth part (this is one of my favourite techniques/use of a random out lately thanks to the 0-Coast and the fact that you can clock it so the random is at least musical!).

The two other things I wanted to explore here was manually "playing" Rene to get more of the Buchla touch place feel so I just tuned each of the 4 rows of Rene to a different note with no Y axis access. This means that everytime I touch a row the new note of the arpeggio would trigger.

I was also experimenting with WAYYYY too much reverb and I'm not gonna lie, I'll probably do It again......."
