Hidden Moog Grandmother Control with Ableton Live & MIDI. Tutorial

video upload by Anton Anru

"In this tutorial, I'm showing how to control hidden Grandmother parameters via MIDI CC, with DAW - Ableton Live and MIDI Controllers. There are many settings inside Moog Grandmother, that can't be accessed from the front panel. I prefer changing them via MIDI, as I find the menu system non-intuitive. Moreover, some parameters can be changed via MIDI only, e.g. Swing Amount or Arp Gate.
This leads me to pair Grandmother with some MIDI device, software or hardware, to ease the workflow with additional parameters. In this video, I'm sharing my experience.
