Samll sequencer example Sub37

Post by mmarsh100 » Mon Apr 27, 2015 12:05 pm

So I was fooling around with the new sequencer stuff in 1.1 (I am a beta tester) and this came out: https://soundcloud.com/mmarsh/sub37sequenced

What I find so compelling about this synth is that it is constantly leading me to music. I wasn't composing or in the creative flow or anything, in fact I was just about to go to bed (oh well!) I simply wanted to try something out with the new sequencer so I switched it on, did up a basic sawtooth patch, nothing special, and started tweaking a bit. I recorded a repeating four not sequence, again nothing special, and then over-dubbed a few notes. The I decided to add some Duo 'chords', again on overdub and this little thing started taking shape. Eventually, I recorded a single pass of the sequence, triggering the start point from the keyboard. It almost sounds over-dubbed to me...

Brilliant! Very cool 8) - So this was created using several layers blended together then? Surely it's not possible to achieve this straight from a single take with the sequencer?

What Dan said ... What Dan said ... What Dan said ...

It was in fact a single pass which is why it was so exciting to me. It's really full isn't it? And harmonically interesting. The echo (MF Delay) and the chorus (also MF) help the illusion but the real trick is to put the sequencer in Record as it is playing back the sequence and adding two-note Duo mode chords here and there. A semi accident, I did this with intent but got an unexpectedly good result. Also, I'm using the Sub oscillator AND the Werkstatt as a third oscillator.

But

I didn't save the patch :roll:

It was late, I was sleepy. And I'm old.

Dang! sorry for the derail but are those T's available somewhere?

Back on topic. I would never have guessed that was one pass. Great job! Gotta love those happy accidents.

There was a time when Moog was giving them away at events.

And, yeah, I'm gonna try the trick again and document it better. I do this a lot, find something cool and for whatever reason consciously don't save it. Weird.

THANKS... Thanks... thanks...

Fortunate happenstances - I know exactly what you mean! :lol:

Wow - I can't get over this being one take. I have to try this out later - so run the sequencer, put it into record , switch on duo mode and add in some extra notes to make chords? It really did like more than a single pass.

Yep, that's about the size of it. I started with a very simple pattern and added chords where I thought they sounded good.

Not to beat this one to death, but I did try to reproduce the patch last night with some success. Another thing that is important for the effect is to play with the Range and Back&Forth settings. Just FYI... Just FYI... Just FYI...

Hey all you Sub 37 sequencers. This might be a well known fact but I just made a cool sequencing discovery with my Sub 37. I know that you can alter the sonic capabilities of notes in a sequences by simply playing with the sound parameters while a given sequence is playing back or cycling through a passage you've recorded. But I didn't know that by holding down notes, when building a sequence (take a basic 16 note sequence of 1/16th notes) from note to note, that you can actually record or capture the phrasing of the modulation of sounds ontop of the notes in your sequence as well (to create actual sound phrasing). Up until now I have only been making sequences (ex. rhythmic patterns of 16th notes - great). Now I seemed to have stumbled onto this possibility of creating not only rhythmic phrases but musical or sonic phrasing as well. Why with swing time added... this is going to draw out some major compositional innovations. Thanks again, Amos and all at Moog!
