Expert Sleepers General CV - full song demo

Expert Sleepers General CV

"A full track recorded with the General CV module as the main sound source. Full patch notes below.

General CV Track - Composed by Simply Sonic Studios http://www.simplysonicstudios.com

Patch Notes

*** Synth Lead with Cutoff Modulation ***

MODE: VCO
Program: Synth Bass 1

Sequencer
Logic to Microvolt's MIDI to CV converter.

Effects
I used CVToolkit to control two inputs of the General CV. Input 1 was mapped to control the reverb level of the preset, this was modulated by using a LFO. Input 2 was mapped to control the cutoff scale, this was modulated by using a LFO also.

DAW Processing
Soundtoys Echoboy JR, some chorus for stereo widening and some eq to boost mid frequencies.

*** Guitar ***

MODE: CHD
Program: El.Guitar (muted)

Sequencer
Logic to Microvolt's MIDI to CV converter.

Effects
I used CVToolkit to control Input 2 which I mapped to decay scale, which was then modulated using a Sample & Hold

DAW Processing
EQ only

*** Synth Bass ***

MODE: VCO
Program: Slap Bass 2

Sequencer
Logic to Microvolt's MIDI to CV converter.

Effects
I sent the left channel straight to the Microvolts external input using a little bits of filter frequency modulation from the function generator to controlthe low pass filter. I then used the Low Pass Gate of the Microvolt which a short dynamic response to add more of a pluck sound to the bass. The signal was overdrive also through the external input section.

DAW Processing
EQ/compression.


*** HH ***

MODE: Drums9
Kit: Power

Sequencer
I used CVToolKit to generate a Sequential Rhythm which triggered randomly at different resolutions to create a more random generative trigger. Out of output 3 I created a sequencer that pitch modulated the Clouds V/OCT input.

Effects
I then used a copy of the Sequential Rhythm module in CVToolkit to trigger the TRIG of Mutable Instruments Clouds. From output 4 of the ES-8 I then used another Sequential Rhythm generate from CVToolkit to randomly change the blend of Clouds.

DAW Processing
EQ/compression. The drums were then summed to a Pultec Eq and a Mutlipressor.

*** Harp ***

MODE: ARP
Program: Orchestral Harp

Sequencer
Logic to Microvolt's MIDI to CV converter. MIDI clocktoarpgeggiator clock.

Effects
I used CVToolkit to control three inputs of the General CV. Input 1 was mapped to control the cutoff scale, which was modulated by a Sample & Hold. Input 2 was mapped to control the inversion of the notes generated by the General CV, this was modulated by also a Sample & Hold. Input 3 was mapped to control the Arp mode which was modulated by a sine wave LFO.

DAW Processing

*** Granular Synth Lead ***

MODE: GRN
Program: Santur

Sequencer
Logic to Microvolt's MIDI to CV converter.

Effects
I used CVToolkit to control three inputs of the General CV. Input 1 was mapped to control the cutoff scale of the preset, this was modulated by using a LFO. Input 3 was mapped to control the program spread, this was modulated by using a LFO also, this meant I had control over what different sounds were granulated by using the LFO modulation. Finally Input 5 was modulated using a Sample & Hold module from CVToolKit this randomly changed the size of the grains generated.

DAW Processing
Soundtoys Little Plate

*** Drums ***

MODE: Drums9
Kit: Power

Sequencer
Clock sent from Logic via CVTool Kit via ES-8 Output 1 to Winter Modular Eloquencer which outputs drum triggers

Effects

The L output of the General CV module is then routed to the Lo-Fi Junkie to compress the signal. This then goes through the 2HP verb which is then sent to the bandpass input of the SV-1. The output from the SV-1 is then sent to the Omnsonic Buffered Multiple so that the signal can be sent to a Omnisonic Dual VCA then the copy of that signal to the 2 input of the ES-8. The left out of the General CV is used to amplitude modulate the signal. I used an LFO generated from the Eloquencer to control the cutoff of the bandpass filter.

DAW Processing
