Play House – LEGO goes modular

April 17, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Play House is an automata that generates slow hypnotic acid house through mechanisms built from LEGO Technic. This piece was made for AudioGraft 2014 with a commission from Oxford Contemporary Music. A modular synth project created by Alex Allmont, that generates acid house music.

Behind the scenes: Today the plan was to hook this sequencer up to the TB303 but here was a lot more fiddly stuff than expected, so this video just demonstrates the note matrix which will eventually send CV note values over to the synth. Each note is triggered on a quarter note (I’m limiting the sequencer to 2 beats per bar rather than 4) and each relates to a single column in the note matrix. How far up or down that column makes contact with the row determines the note pitch value.

A Simple Patch for Complex Melodies – Serge Modular Synthesizer Tutorial

April 9, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Using a sequencer, a sample and hold and two clocks you can create complex melodies, more info below:

Though this is illustrated on a Serge the concepts apply to many modular synthesizers. Let me know how you apply this on your modular synthesizer.

To see the modules used in this patch in detail see the Mystery Serge at http://www.serge.synth.net/gallery/dl….

Live in the Studio

April 7, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Background video description:

This is a patch I’ve been working on over the last days. It’s recorded live and nothing is added in post. The patch in short is:

Random arpeggio: Make Noise René to DPO to MMG. The René is controlled by a series af logic and gates which in turn are controlled by Doepfer A149-1 and A149-2. Doepfer A155 controlls the random freq and cutof for the MMG. Reverb from the A199.

Bassline: Make Noise Pressure Points to Intellijel Rubicon to Koma filter. Echo from the Pittsburgh Analog Delay

Weird sounds: 2 x Doepfer A110 which FM each other and controlled by Intellijel Planar and echo by Make Noise Echophon.

Stereo panning comes from 2 x Alesis Midiverb 4.

Teleplexer – telegraph style multiplexer

March 25, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Make-Noise-Teleplexer-2

The Make Noise Teleplexer is a telegraph style multiplexer (signal router) that applies the fast, physically immediate techniques of telegraphy to playing the modular synthesizer.

The user patches any number of control sources leaving the destination end of patch cables un-connected. Destinations are patched to the outputs of the Teleplexer. Touching the tip of any patch cable carrying a source signal to the surface of the Teleplexer creates a momentary connection. The user determines the destination(s) and polarity of signal by touching the patch cable to any one of the 14 metal plates.

Here’s what the developers have to say about the Teleplexer:

As the building blocks of synthesis are a by-product of communications technologies, why not look to telegraphy for inspiration? The speed and agility telegraph operators displayed relaying life-altering messages across the world was staggering toward some form of future musical genius.

Features:

  • Use as many sources as desired
  • Possible sources include LFO, Envelope, Sequence, Clock, Gate, Audio Signals and more
  • Add & subtract voltages by using several sources at multiple plates
  • Auxiliary inputs allow for continuous signal source to be added to destination
  • Up to 3 independent destination outputs
  • Output signal channel, level and polarity indicated by LEDs
  • Outputs capable of driving multiple destinations without loading effects (no buffered mult needed)

The Make Noise Teleplexer is priced at US $115.
