Hi folks,

Hope you like it... 8-)

Great live piece . .

I kept on thinking 'Oh, yeah! That'll show the euro kids in the audience." Then the camera panned out. Lolz.

I chuckled and said look at the geezers honey. She said go look in the mirror. Now I'm shutting up. :)

Well done Tom!

Actually, the Euro folk can get much more "involved" and "developing" soundscapes going. I'm not sue that I myself would be into the types of 'noises' some of their modules make - but there were some really nice and atmospheric performances from them.

One thing I noticed was that a couple of them actually played a keyboard and added pads to their sequences - I might try that myself... can you imagine an actual written piece using the big Moog and say, a CS80 - played by hand..!?

Hmmm.... :hmm:

Cool!

How did you get your 960 to "ping-pong" and run backwards?

Tom

That was truly inspirational! It is amazing to watch you play the Moog without touching the keyboard once....I definitely detected a touch of "Node" in your performance :hail:

Member *Tom .... is your Moog ribbon controller modified or is it stock?

I'll have my kybd controller up on it's feet soon (see pic below). It has two Dot Com ribbons and I have some ideas I want to try with them once up ~n~ rolling. Reason I ask is understanding how your ribbon is set up may help with the changes I have in mind with the dual Dot Com 20 inch ribbons.

Thanks for the fun performance in the video there .... The Beast never fails to entertain.

My ribbon controller is stock Rex... on the video I have it controlling the (Hz/Volt) prototype Moog oscillator that came with my system which was incomplete and I finished with Dave Brown's help..! I use that oscillator for the ribbon antics (since it won't actually calibrate to 'play'... it just sweeps nicely from low to high) in the ELP tribute and I left it that way when setting up for this performance. It's patched from the CV out jacks and it's trigger is paralleled with trig-1 from the keyboard. I made a short cinch to cinch tail to connect trig-1 & trig-2 on the CP4 panel.

I can also, using CV switch #2 on the CP3 panels, connect it to any of my 901-A controllers and to the filter.

Cheers,
Tom

Thank you very much, Tom.

I'm considering adding a pair of wheels (pitch/modulation), and perhaps the Moog Etherwave Plus theremin with the CV/Gate outs. I'm not a traditional theremin player, my uses of such a controller aim squarely at Jimmy Page/Joe Bonamassa style stuff through a space echo.

Thing is, each of the two 20" Dot Com ribbons offer a 5v+ range on both position (ch1) and pressure (ch2) as well as gates which may be manually triggered by a couple of momentary buttons and also when crossing a predetermined threshold (set with a knob) which is called "auto gate". The voltage ranges go from 5v, 2v, and 4/12v via 3 position toggle switch. All of that, x2, works out to be one hell of a lot of control.

So the theremin thing is a long-shot-maybe.

Anyhow, enough of my blabber ... thanks again for the information, it's been quite helpful .... just like when you told me how you were producing your live Hammond sounds on the stuff stacked up beneath the modular.

So thanks 2x!!!!
