testing rewired rig, Making sure all the robot friends can sing together.

This is my Heptaswarm patch featuring 7 sawtooth oscillators that detune in an equidistant chord from unison to a 6 octave stack. This is based loosely on the fascinating Swarmatron instrument.

I made this video for a friend who wanted a quick rundown of how to operate the Boss RC-505. Will probably make a few more RC-505 looper videos explaining in more detail how i use the RC-505 specifically in my rig and a few secrets and undocumented things i figured out.

How to fake a record scratch - cut sound on Kaossilator

Here's an experiment in using the tenroi-on to control a micro korg and create a kind of "automatic solo machine."

The Tenori-on uses one layer set to random loop mode to send MIDI data out to play the korg. in random loop mode you can mark notes across the screen and a dot travels between them triggering each note when it gets there.

The korg is using a monophonic patch with the arpeggiator turned on and portamento enabled. the arpeggiators latch function is on, the spread is set to two octaves and the mode is set to random. Now when a note is triggered it randomly slips back and forth between that note and one octave higher.

Once a selection of notes is put into the tenori-on in random more you can "spin" the grid around on the screen. This creates a constantly changing pattern of notes that still fits in the key and might repeat every so often.

now all i have to do is switch scenes on the tenori and play with the filter sweep on the korg.

Plaeground composed a Video Album of songs using mainly the Tenori-On visual sequencer. Each song performance was video recorded and processed in a different way for each color in the rainbow. Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo and Violet. There is one Bonus Prism Mix. Other Instruments used are the Korg Kaossilator and the Microkorg synthesizer.

I am using a program called OSCulator to translate wiimote motion data to Midi CC data.
I send the Roll and Pitch to XY 1 and the Joystick to XY 2. This gives me the ability to modulate 4 parameters with one hand. I am also finding that not having your hand stuck to the modwheel pitch bend area is very freeing and natural for performace. This is what I will be using in my band Plaeground from now on.

The first example uses the roll to adjust the filter cuttoff and the pitch to tweak the filter while the joystick does a pitch bend. OSCulator has no way to assign the actual MIDI pitch bend message so i routed the fine tune adjustment to the Y of XY2. I don't like much more than a 1 step pitch bend so it works perfect for me.

The second example uses the roll to adjust the filter cut off and the LFO speed while the pitch controls the LFO Filter depth.

The third example uses alchemys granular mode. The start point is controlled by by the roll. This lets you sweep through a sound and freeze it at any part. In this example I sampled the word "plaeground."

The fourth example is a sample from Elektroplankton, It's the same concept as the previous example execpt it's slightly more musical. There are a lot of drips and bell sounds that you can "find" in the motion, play with and then slide to another sound.

The fifth example uses the same technique as before but with the addition of a polyphonic ringmodulator whose frequency is controlled by the pitch. Very fun for alien voices.
