Doepfer Locks

Doepfer Locks from Jyoti Mishra on Vimeo.

I got the power adaptor for my Encore Expressionist MIIDI -> CV converter today so the first thing I did was hook it up between my Monomachine and my Doepfer.

Then, I assigned two of the MM's CCs to CV outs from the Expresssionist, patched them into the cutoff frequency and resonance amount and that's the above vid!

Sorry for the shaky camera work and, for some reason, the sync is a bit off.

I love the Expressionist - the CVs it provides are smooth with no zippering whatsoever and it's very simple to program. It's lovely being able to bring the power of the Monomachine's parameter locks into the analogue modular domain.

I've assigned the two MM CCs to cutoff and resonance amount but there's no reason, of course, that they can't be plugged into any CV-able destination on the modular.

Imagine the mayhem! :-D

Doepfer A-107 Filter Demos

Doepfer A-107 Filter Demo1 from Jyoti Mishra on Vimeo.

I've made a couple of video demos of the Doepfer A-107 Multitype Morphing Filter. A lot of people seem curious about how it sounds and there aren't many samples around so I thought I'd help out! :-)

Above, the filter is being stepped through its types as a bassline loops. The resonance level is being swept by an LFO at the same time so you can hear how/if each filter type self-oscillates.

In this slightly more musical example, I'm tweaking everything by hand, showing some of the lovely sounds you can get out of the A-107. It really is a killer filter that I've only touched the surface power of so far. I didn't go through each filter as the loop was driving me a bit barmy! :-)

By the way, both times the A-100 is playing a sequence from my Monomachine and in the second vid, that's providing the drums too.
