New Motas-6 Demo Videos


Published on Jun 21, 2018 MotasSynth

"Demo#6 of Motas-6.
The new MotasEdit software plugin is running within Ableton and a repeated simple bar of notes is playing (Motas-6 is connected via USB MIDI).
Parameter changes on the Motas-6 hardware are sent to the plugin/DAW (and likewise changes in the DAW/plugin are sent to Motas-6).

I play with various Motas-6 parameters including the analogue phase modulation, analogue noise and internal feedback (which comes from the audio output before the final volume control) to the pre-filter mixer."

Motas-6 MasterPitch instructional demo

Published on Jun 21, 2018 MotasSynth

"This is an instructional demo for Motas-6.
Ableton DAW software is used to play a repeated simple bar of notes.
The MotasEdit plugin is running, mainly to show a large live screenshot image (I have positioned the window so that most of the plugin is not actually visible).

I concentrate on the Master Pitch parameter page, running through a number of options.
We have three sawtooth oscillators in the mix and I start by adjusting the master pitch offset first using the fine rotary control and then the encoder and buttons for larger changes.
You can turn the encoder for fine adjustment, or push the encoder down and turn for fast changes.
You can see the pitch offset on the screen displayed in cents or semitones. I turn up the unique LFO amplitude (with a sine waveform) to get a vibrato sound.
I play with the modulation strength and then the waveform of this LFO, and then the LFO frequency (displayed in Hz on the screen). I dial in a negative modulation amount (to give a reversed pitch using a sawtooth LFO). Then I add global LFO1 as well which is initially set to a 'noise' waveform. After a bit of playing I turn off the LFO modulations and turn up the unique EG modulation amount. Then I play with the EG settings and modulation amount. Next I go back to the unique LFO and add some very fast modulation (starting at over 400Hz, then reducing). Finally I also add the global LFO1 again."

Motas-6 PhaseMod instructional demo

I concentrate on the Phase Modulation and pitch parameter pages for Oscillators 2 and 3, running through a number of options.
We start with the sound of a straight triangle wave from OSC2, and then increase the phase modulation amount. The triangle wave of OSC2 is phase modulated from oscillator 1 which changes the waveshape, changing the sound. Then I map note velocity to phase mod amount so you can here a different tone on each note played from the simple sequence. Next I add oscillator 3 to the mix with some phase modulation set there too. Btw, oscillator 1 is hard-synced to OSC3! Then I play with the hard-sync settings for OSC2 and OSC1. I change the source of phase modulation for OSC3 to OSC2 (it was set to OSC1) and add some crazy LFO pitch modulation. Next I add some EG pitch modulation as well to OSC2 pitch, followed by some more LFO modulation... chaos!"

Update:

Motas-6 VCF1 frequency instructional demo

Ableton DAW software is used to play a repeated simple bar of notes.

I concentrate on the VCF1 frequency parameter but also visit oscillator amplitude levels and pitch.

We start with the sound of OSC3 pulse-wave (with pulse-width set halfway to give a square wave). A modulation profile has been entered into Ableton for mod wheel (MIDI controller #1). I increase the modulation level of modulation source M1 for the VCF1 frequency so the filter sweeps with this modulation, mod wheel has already been mapped to the M1 controller (in the Motas-6 setup pages).
Then I add some modulation of the filter frequency from the unique LFO for this page. Next I remove the LFO modulation and then set the response curve of the unique EG for this page and set it to trigger on every note-on event (even for notes that are overlapping - setting 'E'). Then I increase the EG modulation level and adjust the EG attack, decay and sustain settings. Next I adjust the filter cut-off frequency with the analogue rotary control and add the LFO modulation back in. I set the LFO to the 'BOING' waveform and reduce the frequency. Next up I kill the mod wheel modulation and introduce note velocity modulation and then remove the LFO modulation. Next I can't resist adding in waveforms from oscillators 1 and 2 including OSC2's sub-square wave. Finally I tweak the LPF1 filter cut-off and EG settings a little."
