TC-11 – tutorial on sequencer notes and scales

July 19, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized 

This tutorial looks at the basics of sequencer programming in TC-11. Starting with a non-pitched patch, we insert a sequencer to quantize the frequency to note values. Two approaches are taken: building a specific scale, and using the Add parameter to quickly fly through a note scale.

TC-11 is a programmable modular synthesizer on the iPad, controlled by multi-touch and device motion controllers. All synthesis parameters can be controlled by these two sources, which allows the user to create countless unique patch configurations.

TC-11 does not use on-screen objects like knobs or buttons for synthesis control. Instead, your touches are the controllers. Distances, angles, rotation, speeds, and timings created by the touches are used to push synthesis parameters in real-time. TC-11 opens up every inch of the screen for performance. Plus, the iPad’s device motion capabilities can be used as controllers. The accelerometer, gyroscope and compass can be assigned to synthesis parameters to turn your iPad into a expressive motion-controlled synth.
