Sensel Morph with Arturia Piano and Audio Modeling SWAM flute and cello | Buchla & Fuge Machine

Published on Feb 7, 2020 Sensel

"Due to recent aesthetic complaints about our wild taste in sound, we decided to head to the conservatory and make some music rooted in tradition. Of course, we didn't give up on electronics, we just showed how expressive the Morph can be with acoustic sounds.

Using the @Audio Modeling SWAM flute and cello, and the @Arturia piano, we created a simple tune and bent the natural sounds these things are capable of. The Thunder overlay is sending MPE data to the cello and flute models (NOT samples!), using pressure and gesture to coax some beautiful sounds. Recorded in Bitwig Studio, and a touch of @Madrona Labs Aaltoverb on the flute.

Sensel Morph with Buchla Easel Command + Fugue Machine iPhone MIDI sequencing

Published on Jan 30, 2020 Sensel

"The Easel Command has all the wonderful sound of the Buchla Music Easel, but gives you modern inputs to integrate with the rest of your studio. There's an option to add a USB Host so you can plug your Sensel Morph directly into the synthesizer.

In this video, I have the iPhone app "Fugue Machine" sending MIDI out over USB to the Easel's USB MIDI port, and the Sensel Morph sending MIDI to the Easel's USB Host module. The Sensel Morph uses vertical gestures to control the Easel's "timbre" slider by sending MIDI CC1. The X or horizontal motions are sending pitchbend data. Finally, pressure is controlling the level of "level 2", set to low pass filter.
It makes for a very elegant setup and a vast universe of pure analog sound.

You may ask - why the drum pad overlay? Well, my Buchla Thunder Overlay was at the office, so I thought I'd try the drum pad. As you can see, it's still awesome.
