the repetitive plucky will drive you insane

Post by Muff Wiggler » Wed Oct 01, 2008 5:44 pm

but it's worth a listen i think :hihi:

this one is really outrageous. It gets insane. It gets really noisy and heavy.

Pretty psycho little recording i would say. All the way from plucky plucky to heavy metal noise mayhem back to pluck pluck

I'll try to describe the patch, the main stuff is caused by 4 phases of the Mankato Sine modulating the 4 wave animation inputs of the AFG. The other 'main stuff' you hear is the AFG's animated pulses going through a Borg II filter used as LPG. The Borg is driven by a Blacet EG1 on the fastest timebase setting, in AD mode for snappy snap.

I'm adjusting the Mankato manually which is really affecting the AFG very much. Just after midway when the sound starts phasing in and out, that's the Mankato's sines going down into LFO mode....

anyway, overall description -

Mobius sequencer v/Oct out to MiniWave w/Scale Quantizer. MiniWave out to AFG's v/Oct in.

Mobius gate out to multi. Multi to EG1(1), EG1(2), Blacet Seq Switch Clock In.

EG1(1) to Borg II
EG1(2) to QuadMix VCA CV input #2

Drum Stuff -
---------------

Mobius Clock out to multi. Multi out to Dual Chime #1 Gate Input and Frequency Divider Input.

Dual Chime #1 output to Mixer/Processor Input 1

Manual Gate button to Freq Div Reset

Freq Div /8 out to Dual Drum #1 Gate Input
Freq Div /128 out to Blacet Seq Switch Input 1

Blacet Seq Switch output to 8008 Bass Drum Gate Input
8008 output to Mixer/Processor Input 2

Dual Drum #1 output to Mixer/Processor Input 3

Mixer Processor out to QuadMix VCA input 3

-----

Non-drum stuff -

AFG Animated Pulse Output to Borg II Filter
AFG Suboctave to Boogie Filter

Boogie Filter 6db out to Quadmix VCA input 2
Borg II Filter out to QuadMix VCA input 1

QuadMix VCA output to recording console input

Finally, 4 phases of Mankato into 4 AFG Waveform Animation inputs. Adjust Mankato by hand.

That's the patch. Hold down the gate button to suppress the FreqDiv's counting, hit record, let go of gate button after a couple bars, fade in channels on QuadMix VCA, adjust Mankato by hand. That's what you're hearing.

Oh yeah during the really psycho bit the Mankato was running full tilt, and I manually opened the frequency and resonance of the two Wiard filters, which were normally both right down (for LPG mode) during the rest of the recording.

Will post the clip in just a couple mins

oh yes, SUBWOOFERS PLEASE

laptop speaks aren't gonna cut it well with this...

and watch those levels!! direct from my synth to your speakers, no dynamics processing or anything. This one is a bit nuts.

sorry for some clipping during the crazy part.

That AFG does a helluva good distorted guitar impression.
I reckon some of these folks with quadrature LFOs could do similar things in substitution of the Mankato.
Nice work!

:oops:

wow guys, thanks for the super kind comments! I usually think my bleepy-bleep has pretty low appeal :lol:

all I can hear are the things I wish I hadn't done. I gotta discipline myself to keep that shrill boogie resonance out of the recordings, or at least use it a lot less. I love it but when listning in retrospect it's too much

but I had fun with this, glad you guys enjoyed 8)

super thanks for the nice comments. Maybe I should post this at ModularSynth.net as well

Or, If that's not what you're going for, then you'd better have a vintage power supply.

Muff,
I've loaded and done extensive examination of your audio and I'm sorry to inform you that your intonation is off by .004. It is therefor not valid. Pleas spend more time carefully calibrating your instruments if you want to make music. :hihi:

Nice job........

This is making me wish I had an AFG for evil Modcan Quad LFO quadrature modulation (when that module arrives at the end of the month).
