Poly sequence without sequencer on KORG R3 synthesizer

"A song combining several sequences on a KORG R3 synthesizer without sequencer thanks to the Motion Sequencer

The R3 is a bi-timbral synthesizer.

Although it does not have a sequencer per se, it has the "motion sequence" function.

If motion sequencing allows you to automate a parameter over 16 steps, it can be dedicated to the pitch of the notes.

We thus have 2 sequences for the same patch, each controlling its own tone.

On timbre 1, in order to make the sequence more complex, I allocated each of the 2 filters to its own oscillator. Thus on timbre 1 the slow variations of LFO 1 control filter 1 in positive and 2 in negative.

LFO 2 is synchronized to the motion sequencer in the form of a sawtooth wave to simulate a filter envelope trigged to the note

On tone 2, LFO 1 in the form of a square wave at slow speed allows the sequence to be transposed to the seventh at 0.75 hZ.

LFO 2 has the same function as on timbre 1

Recorded in one take without any external effects"
