MOTM-650 arppegiating w/MIDI clock to M553 and syncing stuff

Post by JohnLRice » Sun Jan 10, 2010 10:58 pm

Just a bit of fun: :hihi:

MOTM-650 MIDI-CV converter's arrpegiator sending MIDI clock out to the Moon M563 MIDI2CV converter and syncing up the M569 sequencer, 440, 485, 490 filters and even the 510 wavewarper and 730 pulse divider playing a part. The M564 is just being used as a divider to clock one of the M569's rows really slow.

Nice track John!

I don't understand this though:

Nice song, nice video. A driving sequence in the background. Makes me want to go out into the desert and just keep driving.

He may mean the 553.

Nice sounds John! The filters are rockin.

Are you using the arpeggiator on the "lead" line? Sounds great.

Cool stuff! My 650 is in the mail and on its way to me right now! Too bad my 950 hasn't shipped yet.

Great stuff as usual, John!

Now maybe you know the answer to this question. I would like to synchronize external MIDI events with events in the modular. If I patch an LFO into the 650 EXT CLK input, will the MIDI clock on the MIDI OUT follow that LFO? Conversely, is there a way to get the MIDI clock coming out of the 650, like on the AUX outs? Sorry if this is a dumb question. I can try it myself.

Wow, thanks for all the very kind words! :oops: (I hate it when I realize I've missed out on some fine praise . . . or cash or offers for sex from porn stars . . . happens ALL the time :tu: )

@doctorvague: yes, kindredlost is correct, it was a typo! :doh:

@kindredlost: yes, the MOTM-650 arpeggiator was being used for the lead line. It was really fun to play that way. :hyper: The first couple times I went to tear the patch down I ended up playing with it for an hour or more and then leaving it up! I should of made a second video with that patch . . .

@pugix: I'm pretty sure that the only time MIDI clock comes out of the MOTM-650 is when you are using its internal clock. I do believe it is possible to derive an analog clock from an external MIDI input using an AUX out but, I haven't tried that. Take a look at the Moon M553 MIDI2Clock module. I think it makes a really great companion to the MOTM-650 and I've come to depend on both so much I wouldn't want to give up either! :party:
