- 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
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! :)
- 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.
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.
- I’m using the Yokogawa FG400 Isolated Arbitrary/Function Generator as a sound source, with a trapezoid arbitrary waveform at the output.
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.
A while ago I made an interesting little demo video with Michael Claessens, a talented Belgian Harmonica player. We combined his digital harmonica with my modular synthesizer with a patch featuring Steve’s MS-22. I think this really turned out spectacular. Have a look!
Here are some patch notes:
- Michael is playing a Lekholm DM48 Digital Chromatic Harmonica (https://www.lekholminstruments.com/).
