Manipulating Melodies With IOLabs Flux - A Dark Christmas: Variations On The Jingle Bells Tune

video upload by Friendly Noise

"Flux is an incredible rhythm generating machine, but how good is Flux at making melodies? I have tried to answer this question in two videos. In this second part I’ll show how to manipulate melodies with Flux. Flux it not your traditional one note per step sequencer, but melodies are definitively programmable and more than just 'programmable'.

Everything you hear in the video is based on the notes of the first 4 bars of Jingle Bells.

Used in the video: Soma Pulsar 23, IOLabs Flux, 4ms Ensemble Oscillator, Spherical Sound Society Vortex Generator, Joranalogue Morph 4, and Strymon Nightsky.
Some EQ and compression were added in the DAW after recording.

Here is the first part: Making Melodies With IOLabs Flux - Is That Possible?"

ARP Little Brother SN 0706

via this auction

"Designed as an expander for ARP synths such as the 2600, Odyssey, Axxe, and others

Consists of the following functions:

1 divide down oscillator that can be composed of any combination of 4 selectable octaves and 4 selectable wave shapes

1 LFO that is wired internally to modulate oscillator pitch but can be used to modulate other sources in external synths.

Interfaces with ARP’s and other compatible brands’ gear via the cv, gate and trig i/o on the back panel. To play the Little Brother as a normal synth (e.g. with envelope response) all 3 signals (cv, gate, trig) must be connected to a keyboard, sequencer or other controller. The audio output jack uses an RCA connector."
