X1L3 - UNDERWURLDE - glitch and delay demo run

Published on Aug 16, 2019 X1L3

"A very 90s era NIN-alike session to serve as a demo. Fitting considering the 90s 'shadow artefact' tech the module is based on :)

The underwurlde is processing a CB55 from (link at the bottom) which has been turned into a module in my rig.

What you're hearing for most of the video is the CB55 routed clean to one channel and the realtime processed sound of the wurlde routed to a second channel.

To correct an error in the video text. The third delay section is a grab with a sequenced pitch rise, not a drop. This is how the stepped drop is formed in the loop.

I wanted something familiar and simple to process to illustrate how the underwurlde can transform that basic sound into the sorts of chaotic but refined esoterics thrown out by well modified circuit bent instruments.

Most of the demo is an escallation of the Processing of the CB55. At about 5.15 the underwurlde switches over to serving as a delay.

As a delay it can pull some impressive delay times. It can also act much like an abused pt2399 delay will but with MUCH more finesse. The limit at which the noise bleed and disintigration of the delay loop is much longer, it's capable of sustaining a loop feedback without it disintigrating into noise and if the loop is ramlocked it essentially becomes an infinite delay.

Ramglitching is a spin off of the circuit bending that i've indulged in for many years now. What you have here is something akin to a bent Casio SK1 sampler. You can grab adio, lock it in ram and then abuse it with the glitch array. This is none destructive, if you release all glitch lines then the audio in ram remains intact and as it was when sampled. The main module has three glitch gates and a header at the back that allows you to configure these three gates to the eight data lines according to taste. A 4hp strip will follow some time soon which will allow all eight data lines to be merged for enhanced chaos.

The final section of the run is a sample of me going 'ahhhhhh' into a mic, which is then looped, pitch sequenced and with some restraint, glitched to a rise where the last 'chorus' section kicks in."

Two 80's Inspired Hardware Synth Tracks

Song: "Weather" - 125 BPM synth pop on ARQ-96, PEAK, Digitone, EX5 Published on Aug 16, 2019 Floyd Steinberg

"This song is called 'Weather'. It's my entry for the "808 sound challenge". I tried to to something in the style of 80s synth pop (OMD, Aztec Camera...). The whole thing was sequenced on the ARQ-96, which plays the 808 samples and some synth tracks, and also controls the PEAK and the Digitone. The song is made up from 12 different patterns of 2 - 8 bars length, which were arranged in song mode. I played that song back and did the filter & synth expression stuff on the fly, recording the whole thing on my Zoom R24, and added vocals, the EWI and the metallophone and that "Da" voice on top. I hope the lyrics are kind of humorous and I didn't mess up the pronounciation too much. It's a story about someone I met every morning until I didn't."

Bizmuth Modular Eurorack Signal Router & Gate Generator

Published on Aug 16, 2019 Perfect Circuit

"The Bizmuth Modular Bizmuth is a module with three unique switches that are controlled but continuously rotating knobs. As the knobs rotate different combinations of connections are made, this can result in some interesting feedback routing. The switches can also be used to send out gates every time it is rotated. For the rhythmic part of this video we ran trigger sequences into the switches so that they could be routed to different drums.

The Bizmuth also has a unique look since it has an enamel panel that comes in the colorful version shown in this video as well as black.

ASMOC2019 (arches) + modulör114 + t-generator + t-spectrum + t-harmonic (new modules!!)

Published on Aug 16, 2019 Davide Mancini

"This is (more or less) the performance I did at this year’s ASMOC at Acusmatiq 2019.
The sound, sequences and wiggling comes all from the rig you see. One voice comes from the modulör (that also do the fx and the mixing of every other sources), two comes from the t-generator VCO (at the end passing through the t-spectrum processor) and the t-harmonic, 10 bands harmonic vco. The SD1 simpledrum supplies the percussive tones.

"A sequence from the stepsequencer plays the t-harmonic oscillator. T-harmonic self modulates the number of harmonics, tilt and odd/even parameters. (arches) stepseq is quite articulate, in this video you may observe many of its capabilities. At the end I also use the transpose function."

lidelsen festival 2019

Published on Aug 16, 2019 teenageengineering

"lidelsen is a small intimate music and art festival held annually outside of stockholm, sweden.
the perfect place for us to experiment live with the OP-Z.

together with aspiring architect elis butler we built a square box that fitted a smaller crowd. inside we placed a custom made table with built in projectors and a smoke machine. the graphics projected onto the ceiling of the room reacts to the musical notes played on the OP-Z during the performance. the different tracks affect individual graphical elements, creating an intimate connection between what the audience see and what they hear.

musical and visual performance were made by jonas åberg, esther lennstrand, pontus winnberg, tobias von hofsten, NSDOS & ultra satan."
