Moog Cp-251 and Korg X-911 guitar synthesizer, Sunday Morning fun

Published on Mar 8, 2020 Expanding Sound

"There's no real purpose for this video, other than me just having a little fun with these two pieces of gear this morning. The Korg X-911 [X911] is a vintage guitar synthesizer pedal. You can do quite a lot of different things with it. Here, I used the Moog Cp-251 control processor to create a rhythmic filter sweep, similar to a wah pedal, and just played a little chord pattern. Then I used a keyboard sustain pedal in the X-911's hold input to keep the trigger open. When you are in VCO mode it doesn't change notes with you though, so it can give you kind of funny results sometimes. My guess is because the trigger in VCO mode uses tracking, and it only tracks one note per trigger. It'd be awesome if there was a release time knob for the trigger, it would help the trigger release sound a lot more natural. That's why you hear the note cut out once or twice. It was still a lot of fun though!"
