Conjugaisons EP (Valentin Rocher)

If you’re looking for something interesting to listen to, check out Valentin Rocher’s EP “Conjugaisons”. The track “Nous” has a heavily modulated MS-22 at its heart, combined with a R*S Ncom and Verbos Harmonic Oscillator. The whole EP’s (Conjugaison) concept is fascinating, trying looking thinking of modules as syllables, and the patched rack as a language.

Here’s how Valentin describes it himself: “EP composed with a synthesizer mainly made of Verbos Electronic modules. This configuration inspires me the “verb” (Verbos in Spanish).Read more

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.
