sludgy Borg Assimilation

Post by jamb » Fri Apr 12, 2013 2:34 pm

I picked up the Borg prototype, "The Borg Assimilator", from Grant a week or so ago. It's a really nice sounding little box, and anything with a built-in joystick is a +1 in my book! Not that the Borg sound is anything new to you all, but here's a slow sludgy track I made using it, my BOG, SY-1, and a max drum machine i made called "Rhythm Death". Nothing all that special going on here, but I like the sound! Good ol' sub bass in full form.

Interesting. I guess this was the follow on from the joy rider?

does it go into LPG mode?

What does the joystick actually do - I assume one axis is cut off - the other is?

x = resonance, y = frequency c/o... knob on the left smoothly goes from low-pass to band-pass to high-pass.

it's a nice box to play with and size is perfect. bit smaller than the size of the moog pedals, and the envelope input is configured to work with the MOOG ep-2 pedal, which turns it into a pretty wicked waa pedal.

little bit noisy though, maybe that has something to do with it being battery operated.

:doh: yes of course. I'm must have had a senior moment. Actually they are pretty much joined up now into one long mental decline.
