A quick tour of all the modular stuff you will find in the realms of Doepfer
Nice and bleepy with loads of modules and flashing lights

Yesterday was E-day, always inspiring, you met people who are also involved in E-music which genarate new ideas.
This one pops up, just a combinated single 8 step and 4 step row off the Doepfer Dark Time. The 4 step row controls the Moog LP bass and the 8 step the Waldorf micro Q and at 2:36 the Roland Juno 106.
Additional sounds/solo’s came from the Korg DS 8/Lamda, Realistic Concertmate MG-1 and the Kawai K1r.
Used delay’s for the Moog two from the Yamaha E1005 and the Ibanez DM1000, for Waldorf the Alesis Midiverb (3 triplets) and the Ibanez DM1000.
For the Juno I use the Electrix. Mo-fx.
Halfway there are some variations in tone / octave settings (Berlin School style).
I hope your enjoy, and feel free to leave a comment/question
Use a good audio device to listen to it.

Hello ! My name is Frederic Gerchambeau. I have made this movie and this music. The music has been made using a Doepfer analog modular system. Enjoy !
I am a (proud !) member of the french association PWM (Patch Work Music) :
Doepfer A-111 Oscillator’s frequency is FMed from audio out of Roland TR-808. A second A-111 is acting as Modulator for first A-111/Carrier. Both Carrier and Modulator signals are enveloped and triggered from AC Trig Out of TR-808. On stereo out, there’s the handy EHX Cathedral Reverse Reverb.
Feedback connected Metasonix R-54 is controlled by MakeNoise Renè sequencer; there’s a short spoken phrase played by Phonogene and scrambled/mangled with Echophon. Two Doepfer A-111 Oscillators are used as Kick & Snare thru the wild Furio Rupeni’s tube Amp/Distortion unit.
A closer look at the output and offset options on the Doepfer A167 Comparator.This is Part Two of Two. Includes Oscillocope views of waveforms using the Dave Jones Design O’Tool. Sound and Video by Raul Pena.
The first test of the Magic Ceramic Theremin lamp. It is developed as a peculiar piece for the opening of the Exibition of several ceramists in Gallery Artibrak. from november until 28th of December 2011.
A theremin is normally stepless, but in this case an A-156 is used as a quantizer..
Small explanation for those who are not familiar:
In this magic piece of ceramic two antenna’s are integrated. One antenna for the volume and one for the pitch. The instrument does not have to be touched. The volume can be controlled by your left hand (when approaching it the volume increases), the pitch can be controlled by your right hand (when approaching it, the pitch of the sound goes up). By approaching the antenna’s you are influencing the potential difference. Just like the antenna of your transistor radio which functions well or not when approaching it.
The Magic Ceramic is based on the original Theremin invented by Léon Theremin in 1919. That electronic instrument is stepless variable and very expressive. It sounds like an opera voice or violin.
This ceramic version of the instrument has a much more variety than it’s original. You can make the sound stepless or let it be quantized, so that you hear a real tonescale/musical scale. The sinus-tone of the Magic Ceramic is quantized (chopped in pieces), and in the way it is presented now only the Minor notes are heard. (like the black keys on a piano) In this way the steps between the notes are bigger and easier to distinguish. Other possibilities are just Major notes or the complete tonescale, quantized or not. There is also a small sampler added, so when you reach the highest note a spoken voice can be heard.
