Finally, edited some video from the Philly SYnth Meet on December 3.
Last summer a friend of mine gave me an old Boss DD3 digital delay pedal. I’d been looking to add a delay module to my modular synth and this guitar pedal fit the need pretty well. After playing with it for a few weeks I was wishing that it had some way to synchronize the […]
Last May I replaced my old Doepfer cases with nice Mission 9 from Monorocket. At the time I thought it would be such a great idea to record the entire process, speed the whole thing up and put it to music. So, I did the first part of that but until this week I never […]
En lieu of me actually having anything to post that I made (it’s been a month of drawing) I have these three videos I’ll put up instead. The first two I found about a year ago and were instrumental in my getting into modular synthesizers. One is Charles Cohen working his Buchla Music Easel. I […]
Made a little time-lapse movie and a tune to go with it. The tune is a snip of one of these ten-to-fifteen-minute long recordings I make while messing about with knobs and switches on the modular. I’ll record these things, then go through and steal bits and pieces that work as loops and phrases and […]
I’ve been planning to sit down and write a post about some of the new additions to my modular synth. One of these is the Z8000 sequencer by Tip Top Audio. It’s a matrix sequencer and while incredibly simple in concept and design, it’s incredibly rich and complex in practice and use. Just the two […]
I’m constantly figuring little things out about this synthesizer and I feel, in many ways, that in the five months I’ve had this modular thing I’ve learned more about synthesizers and sound than in the years and years previous working with software. I recently added a Doepfer A142 to my system. This is a voltage […]
Playing with the model 10 and the new uLFO. Things get fun, as they seem to do quite often, with the sequencer gets to play.
