overspending again

Post by sandyb » Wed Apr 02, 2008 2:23 pm

this arrived yesterday - 1 day after Bruce estimated it would over 2 months ago! i've only spent a short amount of time with it but the CV Recorder is definitely an awesome module. i had an hour of fun just recording short audio samples and doing granular type effects by sweeping the start and end points with a couple of lfos.
i know there are one or two people on the forum who have a CV Recorder and would love to hear your favourite uses/tips for it.

I would record 64 minutes of UEG output and speed it up while manipulating loop points. Record your envelope shapes. It's great for audio FM and AM. You'll probably want a couple of slew limiters free. Slowed down audio samples can easily be turned into digital percussion. It's probably great with the frequency shifter.

seriously, there has been no mod that has given me more "format envy" than the cv recorder...

i'm seriously impressed with it :)
definitely go for one if you can at all get the cash together - the good thing is lead times are around 2 months and you only have to pay half up front and then the rest when it's ready so there's a bit of time for saving. factor in a fairly hefty, though fair for the service used, shipping charge.

The CV Recorder is one of the most impressive modules in my setup, I recommend it for everyone.

I received my VCDO's, Digital Delay and Quad EG from Modcan this week so very little sleep will be going on for the next while.

If I quit smoking I could buy more Modcan, hmmm.

here is some farting around with my new modules.

http://www.thealisonproject.com/Torn_En ... _XXIII.mp3
Pretty straight forward patch, just using LFO's to modulate Filters,
Delay CV, VCDO Index CV, VCDO Wave SEL CV and turn a VCA on. I Tweak
FM Ratio and Delay / Regen times.

http://www.thealisonproject.com/vcdo3.mp3
Here's a few more fooling around samples I recorded while learning my
new modules, they are all basically the same patch 2 VCDO's, Diode
VCF, Digital Delay and the X/Y Controller controlling the FM Index on
both VCDO's. The last two use a CGS Sequential Switch as an 8-step
sequencer being quantized by a Miniwave.

thanks for the modcan examples - i really enjoyed the torn envelopes one. how do you like the modcan digital delay? it's a module i'm seriously considering when i can get some cash together.

I can heartily recommend the Digital Delay, and I'm an analog freak. Like the CV Recorder, it brings analog behavior and digital capability together. The sound of changing the delay time is glitch-free but not like an analog delay at all. There is a lot of Stockhausen in the way it can scramble your audio into a halo.

do you have the analogue delay that modcan do too?

thats excellent. the cv rec looks like an endless amount of fun.
until i have the whole catalog of modcan (probably wont ever happen), its fun looking at pics :)

and great recordings AP--i can hear these torn envelopes evolving.

Yes, Sandy, I have the analog delay. It is beautiful. That may seem like a lot of money and panel space devoted to delay, but they are just so different that I couldn't resist either one. They often end up in the same patch. The ability to manually control the filter to allow aliasing is fantastic. But it's the CV Recorder that got me into Modcan in the first place. It ended a very long period of frustration.

I am loving the Modcan digital delay, it is just that a digital delay. The feedback loop on it is a huge plus for me (one of my fav features on the mooger analog delay). The filter cutoff switch is great as well, both have unique settings and very useful.... and can't go wrong with vc of the wet/dry signal.

Still a brand new module and unfortuantly I am studying for exams right now so I haven't had as much time to play with it as I'd like (haven't fooled around with the loop function yet), soon....

Sandyb

this is a 13 min screw around I recorded with the above mentioned patch, just fooling around before I took the patch down.... Part way thru I start to play with the Delay times (all mono)... Encore Freq Shift is in the feedback loop of the delay.

Nothing special but it's full of delay from the Modcan Digital Delay.

good you're getting one :)
i think it would be good to start a new thread for cv recorder stuff - this one is very,very old!
