Ping-Ping Pong - A Supercritical Neutron Flux study

Supercritical Synthesizers

"I tried to think of the cheapest trick in the modular synthesizer cookbook. Well, the cheapest trick without Rick Nielsen.

Space. Not that fancy let’s-grab-a-bite-of-that-asteroid-while-we’re-there modern space exploration. The ye-olde-paper-mache-flying-saucers type sci-fi. In Finnish we’d use the word ”Pulputus” which means a sort of a bubbling sound but far more useless. The right kind of useless.

Filter pings! Oh what fun with the Liquid 4 pole setting. This patch has a LFO modulating the Antumbra Knit (a miniature Mutable Instruments Plaits) which has a single low frequency saw wave triggering the filter pings. Both cores of the filter are in use and spread with the stereo control.

After the filter it goes to a miniature Clouds. My own hacked kinda-kammerl-parasites firmware. Only verb this time from it. Then it’s routed to the miniature parasite Warps. Tape echo there. Holy mackerel it sounds good!

Oh the ring? The nice folks at Iceland’s Genki Instruments sent us a couple of their products. The Wave ring’s rotation movement controls the filter FM and the gate starts and stops the tape. Controlled directly from the Wavefront module. Ég tala ekki íslensku but damn this thing is expressive and easy to use. You’ll see more of this in our demos later.
