Albers - CV inputs Pt 2


video upload by DecadeBridge

"The version of Albers available to customers has a few more features than the one in this video including:- LFO outputs.
LDRs can be switched to control Oscillator pitch or LFO rate.
3 way range switch for Oscillator pitch instead of 2.

This is a quick chiptune style jam using Albers as the only sound source. Stereo delay has been added in Albers. Albers' oscilator volumes are being controlled by several triggers and an envelope generator. The pitch of oscillator D is being controlled by an envelope generator and the filter cutoff by the Turing Machine."

Albers - Stepped tones.


video upload by DecadeBridge

"Using audio rate oscillators patched into Albers' pitch inputs and then using the LFOs to create stepped tones. In the first part I use all four of Albers' oscillators as stepped tone generators and then have a little jam with the patch. In the second part I use a VCO to create two stepped tone generators with oscillators A and B and then use the other two as sustained notes. This is followed by another small jam with the patch.

00:00 - Patching Pam's pro workout (outputs 5 - 8) to Albers' pitch inputs.
02:58 - Adding more elements to the patch whilst having a jam. Delay has been added in Ableton.
07:38 - Using the square and saw wave outputs from the Moritz Klein VCO patched to Albers' oscillators A and B whilst using C and D to add static notes. Stepped tones and drones.
09:11 - Adding more elements to the patch whilst having a jam. Delay has been added in Ableton."

Albers ambient jam.


video upload by DecadeBridge

"The pitch of Albers' 4 oscillators are being modulated with different rate sine waves from Pamela's Pro Workout. Albers' onboard pitch LFOs then create a stepped tone. The VCAs of the four oscillators are being controlled using two envelope generators and an envelope from Pam's Pro Workout. A fast decaying envelope is the sent to Albers' filter cutoff CV in.
Output to the microcosm set to one of the warp algorithms."
