Oct 16: 909 Modulated Phaser by C C O published on 2016-10-31T18:36:52Z I wanted to do a variation on the Feedforward Phase Modulation patch from November 15. Basically, I wanted to see how an actual drummachine and synth perform instead of the modular beats and sine bass. Here comes the 909 Modulated Phaser! The patch is fairly simple. Some of the individual instruments of my 909 and an SH101 are mixed and sent to the modular via an Intellijel Audio Interface. Since the Cwejman SPH2 (maybe only mine? I have a very early one) doesn’t like passively multed audio on its input, I split the signal with a VCA4MX. It’s routed to the first input, output 1 is then going to the SPH2 audio in. Output 1+2 (the feedforward cv path) goes to channel 3 and from output 3 to the SPH2 L+R freq input. A steady 1/16 rimshot on the 909 triggers a CTG-VC which gates the cv path (on channel 3 of the VCA4MX). Just for fun, I route the SPH2 mixed out to a QMMF4 for some EQing. Additionally, the highest freq band is routed to a FSH1 for some stereo tremolo (with some feedback on it and a slow D-LFO tri modulating the mix). The mono out of the QMMF4 is mixed with the FSH1 output using a VCA2P - the mono signal additionally goes through a Doepfer A199 for just a touch of spring reverb. That’s it, recorded in one take and a slight bit of additional reverb in Ableton, and of course some EQ and compression as always to bring it all up. Hope you enjoy it and cheers!
