Joris Menten’s Tanacetum For Modular Synthesizer

Sunday Synth Jam: This video, via Joris Menten, is for his modular synthesizer synth track, Tanacetum.

About the track, Menten says “I wanted to do something summery like Roedelius or so. Not sure if it is the Belgium weather but it didn’t end up that summery!”

Technical details below:

  • Main sequence is from the Oberkorn: 2 16 note sequences, each played twice, using a clock divider and sequential switch
  • Sequences are played by the Livewire AFG through the AMSyths JP6 filter then through a Korg PME4: 3 analog delays+flanger
  • Bassline is from the 3rd channel of the Oberkorn, played by a Doepfer VCO through the AS multimode filter
  • The “strings” are a Cloud Generator controlled by an SQ8 sequencer through the AMSynths JP8 filter (clocked at 1 step for each 16 steps on the oberkorn), through a Boss DD20 delay
  • Everything is transposed by a second SQ8
  • All notes are quantized using 2 Doepfer quantizers
“This is recorded in one run,” notes Menten. “Then I added two tracks with some random noises from a noise source through an AS “EMS” filter, an AS echo module and the Kor PME40X pedal board.”
