Cwejman RES-4 thoughts/demos?

Post by felix » Sat Apr 04, 2009 11:30 pm

So who's got one? What do you think?

I've been waiting a little over 2 years for the Plan B M16 (Peter demo-ing it for me @ NAMM 07 was the epoch of my modular quest) and not only am I getting tired of waiting, it doesn't seem like it's coming any time soon.

The RES-4 is quite similar and I really like the fact that it's not at fixed frequencies. I'm quite pleased with the FSH-1, my first cwejman module, so I have have pretty good expectations for the others.

I know cwejman has the reputation of sounding "clean" and "clinical", but I think in this aspect, I would like that in a multi-bandpass filter.

Any simple demos of the RES-4 would be much appreciated too. Simple SAW->RES-4 with some modulation would be just fine.

Thanks!

Sorry to not answer your question, but can you recommend the FSH? Do you use it a lot or is it a heavy cliche thing that you can only use rarely?

I made a demo a year or more with just the RES-4. one or two oscs into the Res-4 and drums through it too. The two outputs were panned left and right:

The way it makes clinky bass was the best I liked about it. Plus, the swirly ghostly sounds using the PH-4 on all CV ins.

You may have already seen these, but Big City Music made a handful of RES-4 demos over the past couple months. Here are some links:






And here's another from someone else:




If you do decide to get one, please let us know your thoughts. I've been very curious about this module as well.

Thanks guys, that's plenty for me to check out that I haven't seen/heard yet.

I wouldn't say it's a heavy cliche, but it's fairly similar to the timbres afforded through ring modulation (the FSH is a ring mod as well). If you at all like the sound of a frequency shifter though, then yes, I would recommend it.

I don't use it that frequently, but it's become quite useful for processing audio on friend's projects - vocals, keys, some guitar.

I had Doepfer A-104 Trautonium filter and have been considering Cwejman RES-4 or Analogue Systems RS360.

I could make some nice sounds with the A-104, but often found it difficult to reproduce them later: Too much hairy knob twisting for my liking.

The Res-4 can sound cliche at times, but one patch I love doing with it is putting digital noise (zorlon or M24) through it and using it like a little 4 step filtrbank with the ASys RS-150 sequential switch controlling the 4 resonators. I like it's more subtle side where it's another texture in a bigger textural soundscapesque patch.

The EQ which is similar, but not resonant is much more useful for shaping sound than the RES-4. Which can get some formant type sounds pretty easily.
