The current batch of Steve’s MS-22 is now officially sold out. Once these last modules and kits are out the door, I’ll be taking a break from production to focus on developing my next module! The next batch of MS-22’s can be expected near the end of the year. And perhaps I’ll also have a new and exciting prototype to show by then 😎. PS: I still have some PCB/panel sets for you hardcore SMD lovers out there. Only 5 remaining though!
- 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
Some customers have asked me to elaborate a bit more on the calibration procedure for Steve’s MS-22. It took me a while to write, but I’m happy to say the improved calibration guide is now part of the manual as an appendix.
I’ve also taken the opportunity to change the manual over to a Google Document, making it easier for people to suggest changes or point out things which may be improved.
The updated manual can be found here.
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.
Good news, Wiretap PCB’s will now come cut out of the panel. This makes them even easier and faster to assemble! :)
