NLC MUN Vocoder

video upload by Steve Castellano

"Richard Feynman out of a Morphagene into the MUN with Plaits (Knit) in chord mode as a carrier source. Reverb and delay by Monsoon. Chord changes are controlled by Pressure Points/Brains, with one channel taking care of pitch and another adjusting chord forms."

via Nonlinearcircuits

"This module is a 22HP 10 channel vocoder based on the Syntovox 222. I own a 222 and have always been impressed with the sound and elegant design, so it was an easy choice of where to start.

The initial design for this module was 42HP with all the fruit – variable envelope lengths, envelope outputs and inputs, filter outputs and inputs, pause stuffing, external noise input, separate carriers for odd/even channels, etc. and it sucked; way too finicky to use.

So I stripped it back to a more minimal version and am much happier with it.

For the Voice section, there is a TRS/mono 6.35mm input for mics, a stereo/mono 3.5mm input for line level sources and a synth level input.

The Carrier section has a synth level input only.

There is no voice/unvoiced switching. Noise from a transistor based source is mixed with the Carrier signal on channels 9 & 10. Pots can control the noise level and the colour (pink/white).

There are jacks for each frequency channel and the envelopes generated. You can also patch in signals to stimulate the carrier signal on the corresponding channel."

Modulating a sequence with a Turing Machine

Published on Aug 2, 2019 Steve Castellano

"If you've ever wondered how to get a pre-programmed sequence to evolve in the same way random Turing Machine melodies do, you've come to the right place. Feel free to ask any questions in the comments. And don't forget to check out my latest releases on BandCamp at https://elettronicasperimentale.bandc..."

TTSH demo

Published on Dec 6, 2017 Steve Castellano

"This video demonstrates some of the sonic capabilities of the TTSH ARP 2600 clone. This one is a Rev 3. Everything you hear was produced with the TTSH (with the obvious exception of my voice through the ring mod), and all reverb is from the internal spring reverb. I added a couple of effects as noted in the titles, plus basic EQ and compression in Logic."

Chaotic harmony with the Intellijel µScale

Published on Oct 19, 2014 Steve Castellano

"Here's a quick and easy way to to add quasi-chaotic harmonic accompaniment to a sequence with the Intellijel µScale and whatever spare oscillators you have lying around. I've kept the patch pretty simple for the purposes of the demo:

Make Noise Rene → Intellijel Dixie II
Intellijel µScale → Intellijel Dixie II & Make Noise STO
Make Noise Maths → µScale CV in & shift (via Doepfer A-148 Dual S/H)
Dixies & STO → Intellijel Korgasmatron
Korgasmatron → Pittsburgh Dual Index
Intellijel Dual ADSR → Korgasmatron & Dual Index

A very basic subtractive setup, in other words.

Edit: It's been pointed out to me that I patched the second instance of the Doepfer A-148 in what some might call a "unique" fashion. In my defence I can only say that if it had been my Analogue Solutions SH-NZ, which has the clock input in the middle, that would have been the correct routing. And any set that doesn't end up with smoke coming out of your rig is a good set."
