Claude Woodward, aka The Sonic Manipulator, shared this video, which demonstrates his custom MIDI controllers and how he uses them to bring more expression to live synth performance.
This video is all about using all the controls of an analog synth plugin in real time in a musical way. I meant this as a way of showing how articulating the sound is key to expression. It ended up being more of a demo of my ‘Claude Controller’ and related gear that I built for the purpose of maximising this. The principals can, of coarse be transferred to other controllers.
As a way of promoting this approach to synth performance, I am working on making some of my controllers available as kits, Please send your comments etc and together we can get synth playing back in the lime light!
