Demo’s

Ambient study – Steve’s MS-22, Chord v2, Magneto, ER-101

Patch notes

  • Channels 1 and 2 of the ER-101 are sequencing each of Chord V2’s four oscillators individually (CV A and CV B both being used for pitch)
  • Channels 3 and 4 are polymetrically sequencing the cutoff frequencies of Steve’s MS-22’s high-pass and low-pass filter.
  • The phasing of the different loop lengths of the different sequences results in an evolving ambient piece.
  • Magneto is providing a wash of delay and reverb with plenty of wow and flutter

New video: 3x Steve’s MS-22 fat percussion ensemble

Check out this new video where I play an awesomely fat percussion patch with three MS-22’s. In my humble opinion, this is the best demo video that I’ve made so far. Enjoy! And have a nice weekend! :)

PS: There’s still one week until the end of my summer deals, pre-order your MS-22 now! :)

Patch notes

  • Bass drum (leftmost MS-22)
    • The MS-22’s resonance is set to the edge of self-oscillation, making it pingable by sending a trigger into the input.

Doing the HAINBACH thing: Test-equipment music with Steve’s MS-22 and Wiretaps

Around the time Hainbach invited me to join his series of Superbooth streams, I felt inspired to give making test-equipment music a try myself. At that time I had just received some Yokogawa test equipment for evaluation. So, this seemed like an excellent time to throw together a patch with Steve’s MS-22 and some Wiretaps and record it.

Steve’s MS-22 drum sample pack!

A few evenings ago, I sat down with Steve’s MS-22 and the 1010music Bitbox and created an awesome drum sample pack to share with all of you. I hope you’ll all enjoy this little sample (pun intended) of one of the many things Steve’s MS-22 can do for you in your rack! :). The download link (and a jam) can be found further down this article.

What’s included in this pack?

  • 24x Steve’s MS-22 drum samples (48kHz, 24 bit, WAV)
  • A Bitbox preset
  • An Ableton Live set as generated by the Bitbox

Some patch notes

  • I used the following modules to create this sample pack:
    • Threetom Steve’s MS-22 dual VCF
    • 1010music Bitbox (for sampling)
    • Pamela’s New Workout (on clocking duty)
    • Befaco Rampage (envelope duty)
    • Intellijel Atlantis (for white noise)
  • All samples contain multiple hits with small tweaks.

Two more demo videos!

The chaotic resonance of the HPF and LPF clashing is an excellent ingredient for dystopian drones and unique percussive pings!
Find out what the MS-22 sounds like when modulated by an envelope and sub oscillator. There’s also a great demonstration of the MS-22 as end-of-line mixing effect at the end of the video!
