Review: Electro Harmonix 8-Step Program & Modular Synthesizer

I did a quick review of the Electro Harmonix 8-Step Program in regards of how it can be useful for a modular synthesizer or any other synthesizer that has a CV Input for the filter or other destinations.
 

D & S - Move To The Beat (Disco-House 90's Style)

I visited Sascha the other day and we recorded a very cheesy disco tune :) we used, Studio Electronics SE1-X, M-Audio Venom, MPC 2500, Acidlab Miami, Yamaha RM1X, Propellerheads THOR (iPad), Wizdom Music SampleWhiz (iPad)

ANDERS JØRGENSON - Stormchaser (Live-Session with Modular and analogue Synths)

I visited Jörg Erren a while ago and we recorded some sessions for the ANDERS JØRGENSON project, this is the first of them.

We used Theis Modular Synthesizer, Moog Minimoog, Little Midi Machine (iPad), Theis Dual Skip Sequencer, Propellerheads Thor (iPad), xoxbox and various effects

We recorded the Master Output into Audacity, no mixing applied to single tracks. Normalised and rendered with Reaper.


ANDERS JØRGENSON - Space Hockey (Modular Synthesizer Session)

I visited Jörg last weekend and we recorded more music for our ANDERS JØRGENSON project, this is the second track from that particular weekend.

We used Theis Modular Synthesizer, Moog Minimoog, Theis Dual Skip Sequencer, Moog Animoog

16 Bassdrums from the MFB 503 with Tape Saturation as PGM

I synthesized 16 analogue Bassdrums with my MFB 503 Drumcomputer.
Put a compression effect on it and recorded it to my Revox A 77 Tape Machine with Saturation.
Then sampled it all back and made a PGM with the samples.

Shiroiyuki (SC user cyberpvnk) came by and we recorded a little Jam-Session.

DSI Mopho x4
Theis Dual Skip Sequencer
Curetronic Modular Synthesizer

16 Bassdrums as PGM for the MPC 1000


A PGM with 16 Bassdrums.

Generated with my Curetronic Modular Synthesizer, then a bit of NY Compression (a VST plugin I am afraid) and then recorded to my Revox A 77 Reel to Reel tape machin with some drive.
Then sampled back...

All the Bassdrums are tuned to 'A'.

It's an experiment with the tape and stuff, so I don't know how good this really is, have yet to use it myself in a track.

You may want to adjust the mixer settings to your needs, as I only use the Stereo Outputs of my MPC as two mono outputs.

Darsho/Tronique - Droning


A drone, which Tronique and myself recorded, when he visited me the other day.

we used :

Curetronic Modular Synthesizer
Arturia Minibrute
DSI Evlver Keyboard
Doepfer Dark Time
various effects

Recorded to Zoom R16, mixed in Reaper.

Tutorial : how to turn a Reel to Reel Tape Machine into a Tape Delay using a Modular Synthesizer

I wanted to turn my Reel to Reel Tape Machine (Revox A77 MK III) into a Tape Delay, but since I don't use a traditional mixing desk with Aux In/Out , I had to come up with a patch for my modular synth.

MFB 503 Drum Samples for the MPC


A new PGM with 16 analogue Drumsamples.
This time using Drumsounds from the MFB 503 Drumcomputer (and additional claps from the MFB 522 Drummachine).
You may want to edit the mixer settings to your personal needs, as I only use the stereo output of my MPC as two mono outputs.

16 Analogue Noise Samples for the MPC


16 Analogue Noise Samples (good for layering with drums) mapped as PGM

Created with a Curetronic Analogue Noise Module and the Arturia Minibrute

16 Analogue HiHats for the MPC


16 Analogue HiHats as PGM

16 Analogue Claps for the MPC


Another PGM for the MPC 1000:

I sampled six Claps from my MFB 522 Drummachine through a bit of Spring Reverb.
(Synthesizers.com Module with an Accutronics Reverb Spring.)
10 more I synthesized using the Arturia Minibrute, an analogue Noise Module by Curetronic, an analogue Monacor Delay and the same Spring Reverb Combination as for the MFB 522.

The self-synthesized ones are possibly only good for some layering, though.
I synthesized Claps for the first time today

MFB 522 Drummachine Samples as PGM for the MPC 1000

I sampled my MFB 522 Drummachine and mapped it as a PGM for MPC 1000.

https://www.box.com/s/1c12q9w59k8r2znvlp5f

You may want to edit the Routing in the Mixer to your needs, as I only use the Stereo Output as two Mono Outputs. Other users may have a different setup.
