Juno-60 through Sony HR-MP5

Background video description:

I originally bought a Sony HR-MP5 multi-effect processor when it came out in the ’90s. It broke irreparably in the early 2000s, and I’ve missed it since. Recently I had the opportunity to buy an HR-MP5 and HR-GP5 (the version for guitar) together as a combo deal, and was taken back in time by listening to the mesmerizing sound of the HR-MP5. Here are a few examples of the great FX of this small but cool machine.

Unlike its more costly cousins, the forgettably named (excuse me while I turn to the front page of the manual to remind me what it’s called) HR-MP5 isn’t a dedicated single-effect unit, but neither does it offer the degree of simultaneous effects processing we’ve come to expect from contemporary multi-effects processors. I like to think of it as the equivalent of two dedicated effects units in one box. The two units, or blocks, can be patched in any order, either in series or parallel, and the routing allows for the processing of two mono signals rather than one stereo or one mono signal, should this be deemed useful. The two individual effects blocks can be set to generate one effect at a time, and both offer a slightly different choice of effects, though 2-band EQ is always available in addition to whatever else the block has to offer. Some of the listed effects are actually combination effects, so the limitation of only two simultaneous effects blocks isn’t as restricting as it might at first appear. For example, Reverse Shift combines something that sounds like reverse reverb with pitch shifting, yet counts as a single effects block.

Walkman Sample and Hold

“In this demo, I use a Walkman as the source for the Doepfer A-148 Sample and Hold module. The output is sent into the 1v/Oct CV input of the Kraftzwerg Triple Oscillator. Notice the subtlety of the random notes compared to using white noise. Hope you enjoy it!”
