Ambient Modular: Contrast With Sequential Switching

Matt Lowery

"This is a complex patch, with a lot of disparate timbres fed into a sequential switch (The Qu-Bit Synapse). The audible source and its position in the stereo field is always changing.

What I know about contrast as a cinematographer seeps into my music as well: that contrast gives depth and significance. So, I like to wire up voices with large amounts of chill, and then switch to a gnarly wavetable. That’s what I like, you might like something different.

Sources here are Chord, Braids, guitar through Microcosm and Julianna, and a captured loop on the Tyme Sefari. Data Bender is mangling two taps of Chord.

Synapse is so great for this kind of thing, because you’re only ever hearing two of these voices. So it doesn’t overwhelm.

0-ctrl is stepping between different voicing on the Chord so that it’s always slightly different.

I let this run for a long time, purely for your listening pleasure. The footage just repeats after a while."
