Strange Spectral Sweeps


Published on May 16, 2018 MAKEN0ISE

"Allen Strange wrote the book on modular synthesizers in the 1970s. Electronic Music: Systems, Techniques, and Controls. Unfortunately since the expanded 1982 edition, it has never been reprinted, and in today’s landscape where more people have access to modular synths than ever before, very few have access to the knowledge contained within. This video series will explore patches both basic and advanced from Strange’s text. Even the simplest patches here yield kernels of knowledge that can be expanded upon in infinite ways. I have been heavily influenced by Strange since long before I became a modular synth educator. Please share this knowledge far and wide.

This patch is an interesting audio processing procedure from Allen Strange, utilizing two low pass filters. The result is a subtle increase in the intensity of the original sound.

The sounds in this video are from Kimathi Moore's Morphagene Reels, available for free at https://freesound.org/people/makenois..."
