Musikmesse 2011 Sneak Preview – The Moon Modular M568A & M568P

Here’s another sneak preview from Musikmesse 2011, which is coming up April 6th: a teaser for the Lunar Experience Moon Modular M568A and M568P, expansion modules for the M568 Quad Sequential Trigger Source., a Moog style über-sequencer.

Details below. 

The M568A module is an addition to the M568 Quad Sequential Trigger Source.

It expands the four trigger tracks of the 568?QSTS with a couple of useful functions:

  • each track has its own reset-input jack
  • each track has two independent trigger outputs, which can be assigned to any desired step position

Assigning/deleting these positions takes place at the 568 QSTS module in combination with the „Select A” and „Select B” buttons at the 568A module:

  • Press and hold the select A/B button (set positionen on the 568?QSTS blink), press the desired position at the 568QSTS.
  • If a 568P programmer module is attached to the 568 QSTS, the eight step-positions of the 568?A will be saved together with the sequences.
  • each track has a 4-position rotary switch to select the 568 QSTS’s running direction
  • Changing the direction (except random) doesn’t happen at once but after the next reset (end/start/turning back) of the respective track.

The M568P programmer module is an extension to the M568 Quad Sequential Trigger Source.

  • Now 2 x 12 sequences/sequence-combinations can be saved to memory for later recall.
  • The non-volatile memory consists of two memory banks with 12 memory slots each. They are selected by the toggle switch “Memory Bank” and the 12-position rotary switch “Sequence Memory”.
  • Pushing the “Recall” button activates a saved sequence. The “visible” sequence is being hold in an edit-bufer, a sort of “zero”-memory position — so nothing will get lost when switching the module on and off. Only when a memory slot gets recalled the edit buffer is overwritten (therefore there is no automatic recall of the dialed memory position when the module is turned on).
  • To save an adjusted or modified sequence, push the “Save”-button (Save-LED blinks), select the desired memory-position and push the “Save”-button again (Save-LED dies out, sequence is saved).
  • To erase an adjusted or modified sequence, push the “Clear”-button (Clear-LED blinks), select the desired memory-position and push the „Clear” button again (Clear-LED dies out, sequence is erased).
  • To duplicate an adjusted or modified sequence or to move it to another memory slot, push the “Copy”-button (Copy-LED blinks), select the desired source memory-position, push the “Save”-button (Save-LED blinks), select the desired destination memory-position and push the “Copy”-button again (LEDs die out). The sequence ist copied now.
  • The buttons/jack combination under “Go to” in the lower part of the module the next and previous memory slots can be recalled — using the respective push-button or a trigger pulse.

  1. Zero content video.
    What are we seeing in the blurry visuals? We don't know.
    What are the panel controls and sockets labelled? We don't know.
    Does the soundtrack feature these modules? We don't know.
    Conclusion: waste of time.
