overloading the frequensteiner [audio]

Post by consumed » Sun Sep 07, 2008 5:38 pm

the sequencer is 'stepping' the afg whereby the two rows are modulating the +/-PPM inputs on the AFG. a Plan B model 15 oscillator saw wave is feeding the sync input of the AFG. a vulcan modulator LFO is modulating the pitch (1v/O) of the AFG. (the harmonics of the sync are 'locking' the AFG up to make that four-note sequence!)

the mix output of the doepfer 143-1 Quad AD is wobbling the frequensteiner cutoff (LP). there is no resonance in this recording.

the recording begins with the signal input/output of the doepfer a-119 preamp set at about unity gain (9 oclock). at about 0:29 i slowly bring the gain up to 12 oclock. this overloads the frequensteiner input, which gives the ripped up liquidy sound. enjoy

:yay: :nana: nice! nice! nice!!
yes, very liquidy indeed.
i think that's one of the things i enjoy most about analog synths/circuits, that thick wet sound you can often get.

Rad! I like the sync idea while sequencing the PPM +/- on the AFG. I'm gonna have to play around with that. Really cool sounds.

it does impart a particular tonal character on everything that goes through it, even with no resonance.
it is also a noisy filter that seems to pick up crosstalk sometimes.
but for some reason this does not bother me. im getting down with dirt lately.

thanks all for the feedback. i forgot to mention im using the animated pulse output on the AFG, which might not be obvious to non-AFG users.
