Pulses and Drones

After reading some texts about Morton Subotnick's work with, what he called, "Ghost Tracks" i decided to improve an old Max 6 project to send CV to my system, with Mira for Max this could be really fun as you can draw the shape of the voltages with your fingers and send them to the synth.

In this video, which is a first experiment, you can see the iPad with part of the interface of the Max's patch

Rhythmic Divertimentos

Using the amazing Eardrill Pendulum Ratchet to generate rhythms with some noise from 266e and random melodies from 261e. Just having lots of fun.

Two different versions of the same patch.

Misunderstanding Series

I've felt in the tramp of consumerism, and sometimes i have bought more modules than my brain and time allow me to fully understand and most of the time i know i'm not using many functions on those modules or not taking profit of some nice sounds they can produce.

That's the reason why i have think in a series of improvised and recorded in one take studies (obviously they are intended to be as musical as possible) made using only one sound source, this source can be one oscillator simple or dual or any sound source, that can be processed in any way, with virtual effects or with hardware effects i.e. Filters, loopers, delays, frequency shifters, phase shifters, etc.

They are titled: Misunderstanding Series.

Going 200e

I regret i have abandoned this blog, as is a real god place for me to have a "note book" of my work, projects and why not steps forward or back.

Last february i decided to upgrade to Buchla, the original format i was thinking of when i started in the world of modular synths, but no, i don't regret of my first choice, Eurorack, as it's a constantly growing format full of creative and high quality designers.

So after three long, long months i received this picture from BEMI:

But i added some 2nd hand modules bought to a fellow wiggler and some Eardrill modules, Pendulum Ratchet, and a ModuleModule chassis with Morphun and MM-Atten. The system looks like this:

So, sleepless summer nights ahead........
