Brüel & Kjaer multiplexer from ESA makes test equipment music

Published on Jan 2, 2020 HAINBACH

"In which I show the musical application of the Brüel & Kjaer 2811 Multiplexer that was used by a European Space Agency lab before.

I have been using switches in my music for a long time - the Doepfer A-151 is one of my favorite Eurorack modular synthesizer modules. In test equipment, oscilloscope switches helped in automating note or rhythm sequences. When I discovered the 2811 on my visit to @LOOK MUM NO COMPUTER I was impressed by the musical possibilities. Luckily, eBay came through and I got a unit that was in use at the ESTEC space research centre in the Netherlands before.

The multiplexer enables eight step sequencing of audio signals, which is a game changer for test equipment music. Its fun and playable and would probably be even nice to have in VST form.

Support what I do and get tons of stuff in return:
Find my music on bandcamp, spotify, etc:"
