What do you want to hear?

Post by zerosum » Sat Jun 30, 2007 3:23 am

I am and have been in the process of updating zerosuminertia.com and am starting to get overwhelmed in some ways, and excited in others...
I want to have details on my favorite synths,effects,etc and lots of audio to go along with it.
So, I thought "thats easy! Just put up everything!"
Well I might still do that, but if the first MP3 doesnt do anything for the visitor, they probly wont check out the rest of the list.
So I have been sorting(The hard drive is packed with sessions of exploration) and picking out things that people might be interested in or might not, and lots of "I dont knows."
So out of this list give me ideas of what you find interesting and what you want to know about it and hear it do.

Frostwave Resonator
Frostwave Sonic Alienator
Sherman Filterbank
Metasonix TM-1, TM-7
Blacet/Wiard designs Miniwave
SCI Pro~One
DSI Evolver
KORG ER-1 MKII
KORG Z1
Effector 13 TorN's Peaker,Truly Beautiful Disaster,Vintage Fuzz Maker
EHX Wiggler, Flanger Hoax

Theres enough info out there on the Virus b that I dont feel like focusing on that,
I use it for a lot of things, its a swiss army knife-run synths through it,guitars through it, drums through it, make pads and background filler, everything.

The POD XT, well pretty much everything crunchy and tight that sounds like an amp was done with it, thats it.

I also have quite a few songs in progress and always looking for others to work with.
Especially interested in finding other metasonix users, especially TM-3 and S-1000 users.

Hmm... I'd like to hear what you've done with the Miniwave. Maybe a demo of it used as a quantizer (I've heard a lot about this feature, but have never heard it actually demonstrated).

If that's not of interest to you at this time, no big deal.

I'd like to do this as well.
I need to read up on it again.

Wow. I read the above link and while I'm still sort of confused as to what it'll sound like, (only because I don't have one in front of me to patch up), I'm now wanting a miniwave more than ever.

Certainly looks like a very capable module. Just out of curiosity, I wonder what standard AM Radio would sound like fed through the quantizer.

ahhhhhhh :) Its the thought the counts...
But believe me, I know how much that sucks!!
I have had that happen numerous times in the past,including important e-mails, etc...

So now Im so paranoid that I copy and paste to notepad and save temporarily to the desktop.

cheers for the effort

long story short, it quantized control voltage, not audio, so you don't 'hear' it persay.

you can either use it to bring a non-pitched control signal (like a Binary Zone's output, or white noise S&H'd) into 'key' as a pitched control signal. you can also use it to shift the key of an already pitched control signal.

you can 'hear' it in action on the second clip here:

Ah-ha! I get it now. Thanks for the explaination... The other day, I was idly wondering if such a thing would be possible. Looks like it is.

Thanks again, especially for making the whole key changing aspect of the quantizer make sense.

Well...I'll stick these in here for now:
TM-7 is at the end of all these(its at the end of almost everything i do)
BZ to MW to Resonator and some knob twiddles

This one is a little different,
narrow pulse clock out from BZ to MW in,
MW out to resonator LP freq CV in
EG-1 to Miniwave wave select CV in(used as an LFO)
resonator to boss octave
Number 2

More knob twiddleage
Number 3

This one has some TM-1 following the resonator
Number 7

Cool.
Number 2 sounds great. I like the lfo sound in there a lot.
And number 7 makes me want a TM-7.

Thanks for further enlightening me about the quantizer feature.
