Voltage Modular VM900 Tangram

"Well I've always loved the Tangram sequence. It's iconic, what I think of when think of sequencers. From the Tangerine Dream album in 1980 of the same name. It's four patterns of 7 notes, each played twice. I even already did a video about it several weeks ago, except I used "standard" digital modules to do it. Three sequencers, the kind where you put in note names (such as A3, B5, etc.), and were you have digital clock modules controlling everything. Makes things easier! Except now that Cherry Audio's come out with the VM900 Collection of Moog-style modules, I now have a real (LOL) sequencer to work with. Totally analog, nothing digital. Which means you can't say something like, "give me 96bpm," you have to figure out the precise voltages you'll need to get the results you want. And you have to use analog logic and programming to get all your events happening when you want them and all in the proper order. Endless fun! (No, I mean it!) It's not that it's harder to do, it's that it makes you think differently to get things working. Wouldn't have it any other way.
