Pyramid Sequencer Demo – LIVE MODE + FX MANAGER

May 23, 2015 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

This video is an example of how to chain effects in the FX Manager, sequencing the DSI Mopho x4.

Each track can handle up to four chained up effects. As all effects are real-time processed, the recorded events will not be affected but the sound will change on the fly. In this video only one track is used, in LIVE mode exclusively (CHORD sub-mode). Its effect section contains two arpeggiators, one humanizer and one randomizer.

0:10 keypad used to play simple notes, an external keyboard controler could be used instead of the integrated pads
0:14 octave is set down to access lower notes
0:15 use of the smartpads in chord mode
0:21 tonality changed from Cmaj to Cmin and back to Cmaj

0:34 first arpeggiator added
0:38 octave set to -1
0:59 exit from the first arpeggiator with the following settings:

style = up/down
gate = 200%
rate = 1/1 (slow)
octave = -2

1:03 harmonizer added and set with +5 and -4 to create chords from the first arpeggiator outputed notes.

1:24 second arpeggiator added, playing around and finally setting a very high rate

2:54 second arpeggiator style set to “random”
3:05 second arpeggiator is bypassed

3:11 randomizer added, with param set to “velocity”

Some close up features of the upcoming KOMA Elektronik Komplex Quad Sequencer right before Musikmesse! Now, the sequencer length is displayed by the LEDs beneath each step as it is changed momentarily. The Komplex Sequencer is driving the pitch and filter cutoff of the Korg MS10 while the Volca Beats provides a rhythm. The KOMA Elektronik RH301 provides the master clock.

Introducing the Beat707 XXL LE – DIY Drum sequencer

November 23, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

This is the Beat707 XXL LE – Limited Edition – no LCD and no SD Card, less components, minimal interface.

http://www.Beat707.com

For more details, visit our Facebook Page

https://www.facebook.com/beat707

Beat707 XXL LE has only MIDI output, no LCD and no SD Card. Uses the ATmega328 EEPROM to store data. This unit can handle 8 drum tracks, 2 accent tracks and 6 patterns. Each pattern is actually a combi of 4 x 16 steps plus extra double steps. So in total we have 128 steps per pattern. We have setup a very easy way to edit all those steps. We have steps A, B, C, D for each set of 16 steps. Also, you can set a set to “double-step” and it will blink instead of light-up. All options are set into the program itself which can be altered and uploaded using the Arduino IDE.

– Uses only Two ATmega328 Chips and basic components.
– Work with a 500mA 5V power supply.
– Can use 4 pin mic left and right connectors, instead of 6 pin mic connectors.
– Settings such as track drum notes and midi channels are set in code, while BPM and Steps# can be changed in the interface itself and is saved along the other data into the internal EEPROM.
– Multiple units can be side-chained.

As part of the 2014 Red Bull Music Academy in Tokyo, we’re celebrating Japan’s many artistic practices. The Sushi Sequencer brings together two of them: Sushi and music technology. The idea was to make a sushi conveyor belt a playable sequencer. While the results in the video are tongue-in-cheek, the technology behind it is anything but: Helped along by a team from Native Instruments, both Just Blaze and TOKiMONSTA synced music to colored plates on the conveyor belt, making for one of the world’s most delicious music-making machines ever created.

Check out the new SparkPunk Sequencer!

August 31, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

The SparkPunk Sequencer is a musical control voltage sequencer designed to control the SparkPunk Sound Kit. With the pair, you can create ten-step musical motifs, but there are hidden opportunities in the sequencer: it can be modified and connected to external hardware in clever and interesting ways. The SparkPunk Sequencer cycles among ten steps, reading the slider and switch for each, producing corresponding analog voltages on the output pins. It offers hands-on control, with its array of knobs, sliders, and switches while seamlessly integrating with the SparkPunk Sound Generator for your creative musical enjoyment.
