0-CTRL: Exploration 01

C Nich0lls

"First exploration with the new 0-CTRL from Makenoise. Paired up with the 0-Coast and the combination of the 2 definitely makes for a fun sonic playground.

Using all 3 rows of the 0-CTRL with the pitch row being sent to v/oct input of the 0-Coast, the strength row to the overtone input and the dynamic gate to the gate input of the contour generator.

The interaction of the dynamic gate and contour generator is incredibly nuanced and responsive. There is also some subtle animation of the time row to coax a a little bit of groove out of the timing. Across the recording there is manual manipulation of the balance between triangle wave and the more complex square/waveshaped inputs, as well as some adjustment of contour parameters.

The recording is a single-take recorded through the Strymon TimeLine and BigSky FX. It takes advantage of the NonLinear algorithm of the BigSky which is a gated early reflection reverb. Reminds me of some of the FX you could get out of the venerable Yamaha SPX-90 back in the day, though much less grainy! The video is also a single take so that you can see the played interaction with the 0-CTRL.

Looking forward to exploring this new controller much more."
