The Last Drone of 2017. A modular synth piece. Mostly large format but an ALM Pam's Workout and Makenoise Maths snuck in somehow. hihi

The video clips are from my work. They are of a thermal induction machine for hardening sprocket teeth and a torch heating up a part for welding.

The bass drone is a pair of Q106 VCO's with a ramp and a saw wave into the Q150 Transistor Ladder filter. Modulations coming from some Mega Ohm Audio LFO's. The audio is then sent through a Synthetic Sound Labs S1310 Digital Delay which is modulated by another Mega Ohm Audio LFO.

Mutable Instruments Braids (Frees State FX build in 5U) along with the triple saw mode. A Q960 step sequencer sends the voltages for the slow changing chords. Frequency Modulation is from the Yusynth Quadrature LFO. The mixed signal is then sent through a Z.Vex Instant LoFi Junky pedal and on to a moogah (Synthcube) SEM filter in high pass/notch mode.

A dual walking sequencer line is faded in and out. It is made with a pair of STG Soundlabs Voltage Mini Stores in a 5 against 7 step pattern. They are sent through quantizers on to a pair of Q106 VCO's. One VCO is sent through a Behringer DD400 digital dely module and the other VCO is sent through a Modcan 73B Dual Delay. They are mixed into an Oakley Audio (Krips1) Diode Super Ladder filter in low pass mode.

A fast 24 step sequencer line from another Q960 is playing a Q106 VCO triangle waveform into a Mega Ohm Audio modified Q109 Envelope Generator and on out to a TC Electric D-Two digital delay. They are faded in and out via a Makenoise Maths and Synthetic Sounds Labs Octal VCA.

The final bell sound is a step sequence from a Q119 into a trio of Q106's. Two of the VCO's are used in an FM sync mode with ramp and saw waves, and the third VCO is a triangle waveform. They are sent to the X and Y inputs of the Oakley Ring Modulator (Krisp1). That is sent to a Q107 State Variable Filter in low pass mode. The filter is modulated by the modulator VCO (triangle output) if the two Q106's in FM mode. The signal is voltage panned to stereo with a Q111 Pan/Fade module.

All timings are taken from Cubase midi out to dinsync via Mode Machine converter. The BPM is 80. ALM's Pamela's Workout, Q173 Gate Math, STG Soundlabs Time Buffer, Time Divider and Integer Divider modules divide down the timings for all sequencer events. I just performed final mix fade in and fade out. Additional reverbs and delays are from a pair of Lexicon MX200 delays.
I rieallly dug this great ambiance with a slow subtle but solid build up. I also really appreciate your detailed patch notes and your quite thematic video. we're not worthy thumbs up we're not worthy thumbs up

On a side note I initially read the title out of the orner of my eye as "conjunction junction" that old school house rock song.
It is truly S L O W... That was a main part of the exercise.

"Conjunction Junction". Ha. Wasn't that on Sesame Street? I believe it was "AND, BUT & OR" were our friends.
I really enjoyed this track! Reading the patch notes two or three times while the track played was particularly interesting. Nice work!

Yeah that was great - both the music and the video. thumbs up
