Hertz Donut mkIII demo SATURDAY Aug 25 (@Modular8, Portland)

Post by mt3 » Wed Aug 15, 2018 10:55 pm

Scott (of Industrial Music Electronics, formerly Harvestman) will be at Modular 8 for a HDMK3 demo!
"I will lead off with a presentation about chip music ~30 minutes, then it gets into philosophy of square wave stuff, then probably seamlessly transitions into the HD3 demo."

I cannot find anything about it on the modular8 website - will there be a live stream of the event to stay home and awake for?

The HDIII looks very interesting and I am looking forward to hear more of it...

Yes, on their FB page they said it will be broadcasted live on their Youtube channel. I'll watch the live streaming from Italy. :)

Live stream is up. May have to sell a few modules to get this. Think it'd pair well with a piston honda mk3. :hihi:

I was hoping to view it right now, but was removed. I'll update the original post once a new vid is (hopefully) uploaded.

From ignatius:
the video got copyright dinged by youtube/warp records. we had some background music playing when we were setting up waiting to start and i guess the youtube algorithm scanned it and flagged the video.
so, it's in the process of being edited and should be on the youtube channel soon.. hopefully.
here's where it'll show up:

Ah, what a pity! I watched the live stream and found it very informative. I think Scott played a bit of Journey's 'Don't stop believing' to demonstrate chiptunes but they probably are not signed to WARP.

The Chiptunes seminar was quite interesting and triggered some memories from my early youth - I actually recorded some of Rob Hubbard's tunes to cassette back then but struggled a bit to program music in Basic 2.0... :hihi:

Regarding the HDIII I did not fully understand the new processing/folding part Scott implemented last week by reducing folding algorithms and introducing the new wave/phase modulation. If someone could explain these and the interaction between them it would be great. It looked as if they were different modes on the folding control, not sure if available at the same time.

I liked the assignable CV input - you would loose CV over fold then though. I think in the end for o´more complex modulations one might end up using the preset morph, which is fine too.

Also: estimated release date 2 - 3 months...now wait for a reupload of the video to rewatch it and get a better understanding.

Sounds brutal and gnarly :sb:

I wonder if it is capable of more traditional, glassy FM tones. I assume it would be, just by dialing back the overall mod depth.

Scott you are killing it here with your new mkIII offerings. HD will be a nice FM playground.

When I was re-listening to this and Scott was briefly discussing the unison mode I thought of the microbrute and how it’s sub-oscillator was able to be a sub octave or a fifth below. I doubt it would happen when it’s released since that’s just around the corner but I wonder if it would be possible at a later date to upgrade the firmware with the ability to set the unison oscillator at a musically relevant interval (or even a free offset ranging from unison to an octave down) via the oscilator manager menu.

The Piston Honda mk3 has different unisone mode with 4 presets at different grades of unisone and 2 more presets with one octave below and one octave higher mode, so I presume the HDmk3 will be the same

Ya, my initial skepticism about "audio quality improvements" conjure clean, sterile, lifeless, "perfect" sounds. Thankfully it is translated into crisp, higher-resolution details of hell's frescoes.
