MakeNoise PrssPnt & Channel Saver | First Patch

video upload by Cinematic Laboratory

"When MakeNoise announced the two little utility modules I couldn't help wondering why.

Channel Saver is like the two center Maths channels which most of us already have in our case. But it's also remarkably close to a Buchla 257 voltage math because of the crossfader. Unfortunately it doesn't have a CV to crossfade, which X-PAN has. It's a nice utility on its own, and a welcome patch buddy for Maths when it's doing 22 more important things. It all sounds like no big deal, but the combo can do amazing things once you start patching. A new module will exponentially expand your options.

PrssPnt is a no-brainer imho. Pressure Points was the go-to module for adding human interaction, but it was also the module that always had to go in favor for more important utilities. The video claims it's discontinued, but it's not. It's still available and in stock. The Brains expander, however, is officially in the discontinued list. Regardless, there's always room for the 4HP PrssPnt and even a tiny bit of human touch can do wonders. You'll be the clock, the expression and the source of uncertainty. I should have used that line in the video. But I bet you'll see it in a next Shared System X episode.

In this first-patch video, I removed Maths and Tempi, so no clocks or envelopes. I had to move the case around by touch and creativity. Working with limitations isn't just a fun challenge, it also makes room to really listen what your VCO's are capable of. I thought I knew the DPO, but it seems I only scratched the surface."
