Re: Early analogue sequencers?

Thanks for all the responses. Plenty there to keep me busy.

If anybody is interested KVR has a good article written by Chris Halaby, one of OpCodes founders - The Early Days of Software Sequencers

Re: Early analogue sequencers?

Thanks Z and Nathan for the informative and thoughtful replies. Can I try to summarize my thoughts and see if you agree with the general outline. 5 types of sequencer: Analogue - predominantly 50's - 70’s with a current revival Hybrid Analgoue/Digital standalone - predominatly mid 80’s to mid 90’s (...

Early analogue sequencers?

Hello, I am looking for some information and I thought the good people on vintage synths might be able to help me. I would like to know a little more about early sequencers. I don't know much but what I have is: Raymond Scott - Circle Sequencer Moog 960 Arp Sequencer (1050?) Korg SQ 10 Buchla Sequen...

Re: What is your go to Module?

The Banalogue VCS is a must... it's like a swiss knife module. I already have a Eurorack and I am leaning toward buying that format again. The Frac Rack might tempt me but I really like the smaller format. Very portable. What I'm looking at getting is the Frequensteiner, A-155 sequencer (I have the ...

Re: What is your go to Module?

Yep I looked at the Metasonix stuff. I would love one but I think I might have to wait a while. I keep thinking it'll give me that low down distorted pump... warm and round. I have tried a few distortion pedals... mostly Boss OD and such but nothing really gave me the feelings. JS did you have a few...

What is your go to Module?

Hello, It's been a while since I posted but I could do with a bit of advice. I am about to get my second modular suitcase and am looking into what modules to get. I was wondering what is your Go To Module. What module gives you 'that sound'? My second rack is going to be more geared towards processi...

I liked the Arturia Moog Modular one alot...It was really fun man, and it sounded pretty great... We're talking about digital modules for modulars, not VSTi's emulating modular synths. :roll: I'd like to see one company do a module especially for FM synthesis, all digital of course; kind of like a ...

c1t1zen - the Doepfer A-160/161 can create arpeggios. They create rythmic sequences and you can pitch the sequences by modulating the VCO with an LFO of ENV. You can force the modulations into semi-tones with a quantizer.... sounds pretty cool. I don't know of any module than can granulize... I'd s...

All good...

Of course there's the Doepfer Sampler module...

I'd love some wavetables but it seems to be very expensive in the Eurorack format...

Plan B Tap clock is digital... another one one I don't have :)

Digital modules for modular synths

I was thinking it might be good to have a talk about digital modules... There are probably heaps but it might be interesting to list a few and say what you think if you have them... I can think of a few off the top of my head but I don't have them so any comments would be good. Harvestman modules Do...

There's a free book on the ARP 2600 and subtractive synthesis generally at http://www.samecoff.com/works.html - each chapter has about 10 questions after it making sure you're keeping up. Also there is a CD with 99 samples highlighting certain techniques in the book. Well worth the download. The Mic...
