Here are the explanations that I wrote on Soundcloud with both examples:Etan wrote:jcn7 this sounds really great. Could you please explain how you did that (only with pinging filters with short triggers?) and which filters you were using?
1) Euro Filters Dance 1:
I'm using 2 filters in self oscillation mode as the sound sources to create this interesting rhythmic pattern. I'm using a Din Sync "Sara" dual filter and a Manhattan Audio MA35 filter. I'm also using a 4ms RCD into a Fonitronik attenuating mixer to create a kind of a sequencer which is sequencing the MA35 and a bit of the Sara filters. I'm also using a 4ms PEG as 2 independent clocks and EGs for the filters.
Anyway, I just wanted to demonstrate that these filters can make good oscillators as well.
PS...no overdubs by the way, and the verb is an Erbverb.
2) Euro Filters Dance 2 Realtime Manipulations:
So here is another demo of using just 2 oscillators as sound sources:
1) Manhattan Audio MA35
2) Din Sync Sara dual filter
I'm using a 4ms PEG to provide rhythmic tempos and percussive envelopes for each sound source. I'm using the 4 of the outputs from a 4ms RCD into a Fonitronik MH01 Attenuating mixer to create a basic sequencer which in turn controls pitch on both the MA35 and 1 channel of the Sara dual filter. I also have one of the outputs from the RCD and the MH01 mixer going into a Pittsburgh CV Bend module and it's output is fed back into both the other frequency cutoff channel of the Sara filter and one of the PEG's curve inputs. The final audio is being processed through a Make Noise Erverb module.
With this configuration I can make all sorts of cool patterns and other rhythmic concoctions all day long. It really is a great configuration...very versatile.
In this demonstration, I wanted to show how versatile it is by just moving various dials of some of the modules and let it play out for a few minutes.
Hope you all like!
PS...I do not have any standard oscillators in this modular system, but rather use my filters in self oscillation modes as my oscillators instead. I like this approach much better. Besides, I have standard classic synths that I can always tap their oscillators if I want to and feed them into my modular.
Hope this helps...
