Multipulses Using Skewer Plus 2-Pulser

Update: had the wrong video embedded above. Fixed.


  1. Alesis Micron can do this.

  2. What is skewer? What is 2-pulser? Is this software or hardware? Nothing even comes up in search. A demonstration of something that is not useful or repeatable is bogus.

  3. Also,it sounds horrible.

  4. Very nice. I liked the bell tones from the audio rate modulation.

    Dual antiphase pulses are a feature of plucked and struck strings: the initial impulse travels to and fro, being reflected (and dampened at each end.)

    I wonder if Ian will be releasing these? (Through Elby again?) It looks like a sharper version of his Double pulse generator II, but with the second pulse inverted.

  5. @Gridsleep I hope Matrixsynth never descends into just being reprints of product brochures, fetishistic photos of ancient systems that glorify long-past innovation, and tedious unboxing videos (though having some is good, to satisfy you, why not?)

    Ian has been an influential innovator since the 70s: if he teases a new circuit or shows an experiment or prototype, that is interesting to many of us. Maybe you will see what he does in products in 10 years time, but there is no need to disparage genuinely creative people like that, the people with the 99% perspiration.
