Generative journeys. A single row on the M8 produces all the action needed to take us on an adventure. Backing chords and pizzicato strings are provided by the little MT32-pi.

"In this GREAT CONJUNCTION walkthrough, I stumble through the CUSTOM INSTRUMENT pages. Detailed changes to the YM2413 sound engine can be made in here. The MODULATOR & CARRIER have many parameters available to tailer the 2-op engine to your liking.

Feel free to ask for clarification in the comments. A spider dropped on my head and I lost my focus for a bit."

GREAT CONJUNCTION FM sequencer & synth - say what!?!

video upload by Arman Bohn

"GREAT CONJUNCTION has been released and will be produced in small batches. You can get on a waiting list here:

You can get on my general mailing list here:

In this video I will try to describe to you, in non-technical terms, the project I have been working on for about a year and half - GREAT CONJUNCTION.

I edited about an hour of rambling down into about five minutes of compressed, stream-of-consciousness brain trash for you to decipher."

GREAT CONJUNCTION Tutorial: Sequencer

video upload by Arman Bohn

"Purchase GREAT CONJUNCTION here (very soon):

This is not a demo of the overall sound quality or capabilities of GREAT CONJUNCTION. It is a sonically mundane walkthrough of how to use the three onboard sequencers.

Each parameter and sub parameter of the SEQUENCER page of GREAT CONJUNCTION is described in detail."

"Playing with gestures on the ​⁠@HologramElectronics chroma console. Starting with just a little GREAT CONJUNCTION FM goodness and then adding in some delay and tape effect for spice.

The GC is coming along. Working on the manual and some final bits of software. Another batch of prototypes is on the way."

Annotated space garbage Great Conjunction prototype into norms pedalboard

video upload by Arman Bohn

"Chugging away at the Great Conjunction prototype. I think I have succeeded in getting over 100 parameters accessible via MIDI CC. Now I’m looking into some ESD counter measures.

In this video, I’m noodling around, playing with rhythms and making some minor adjustments to the synth engines.

Recently added a third generative sequencer style. I’ve also made a fundamental change underneath so that each of the three sequencers can be set to create sequences from any of the sequence types.

Documentation is in the works, and I feel pretty close to being able to send out some prototypes.

It has been a real struggle with hurdles and learning moments. I’m sure there will more to come.

Chompi sampler - first play w/ Prismatic Spray

video upload by Arman Bohn

"I backed the Chompi and received mine few weeks ago. I haven’t had a chance to test it out until now.

A quick perusal of the manual, online and off I go!

I’m using the Phantasmal Force to trigger that initial note.

The prismatic spray feeds some sound into the Chompi and then I start turning some knobs.

I have no idea what I’m doing.

My Prismatic Spray bytebeat synth can be found here:"

Simple rhythmic variations w/ Hologram Microcosm, Dirtywave M8, MT-32 pi, TX-6 & RK-006

video upload by Arman Bohn

"Generative patterns from the M8 are producing the rhythms and bass. M8 is also sending random chord information to the MT32 pi. The MT32 is playing back an E piano soundfont that is sent through the microcosm.

The microcosm is kind of like my therapy right now. I can feed it generative random stuff and play with the knobs and occasionally make some really magical sounds."

Hologram Chroma Console + Great Conjunction generative synth - every effect isolated NO TALKING shhh

video upload by Arman Bohn

"Just giving some love to a brand new Hologram Chroma Console. My Great Conjunction prototype just came in today, and I decided to set up a simple, generative patch and play with each effect on the chroma console.

I didn’t get into too many of the shift menus. Just a brief exploration of what each effect does in the context of a pretty, basic synth sound.

This thing really shines when you start adding the effects together and get into some of the deeper features of motion capture.

I may even dust off the guitar and plug it in, who knows!

I sell my synths/devices over here:"

Playdate micro console & Hologram Microcosm 10/10 ambient highwater skinny jeans marimba yuccie mix

video upload by Arman Bohn

"Here we go.

Plugging the unobtainable directly into a cheat code.

Playdate running 'Modular Play' app. Using the 'ball' sequencer to drive a couple marimba samples and a standup bass. And an 808 of course.

Marimbas are basically ANOTHER cheat code in ambient music.

Microcosm just just adds the magic."

MIDI out test Great Conjunction prototype into the Prismatic Spray through Hologram Microcom

video upload by Arman Bohn

"It’s been a while. I’m back. Here is yet another in the seemingly endless prototypes of the Great Conjunction. I’m testing the out from the sequencers of the GC, feeding the output of the first sequencer via MIDI into the Prismatic Spray. All of this is getting beautified by the Hologram Microcosm."

Lofi tech beats PCBcore w/ NUNOMO QUN MKII, TX-6 and pikocore

video upload by Arman Bohn

"Bare PCB devices. The Qun clocks the piko through the rk-006.

The Qun provides a generative bass-scape and I tweak the amount of FM and certain probability ranges. The Qun has been a bit of a mystery … I’m still thinking about making a video where I talk through trying to use it."
