Strymon Magneto In Action

This pair of videos, via Rheyne (Jon Barbieri), captures the new Strymon Magneto in action.

The Magneto is an audio effects module for Eurorack modular synthesizers that they say is designed for ‘expansive soundscapes and evolving, otherworldly tones’.

Here’s what Barbieri has to say about the technical details of the first patch, above:

First patch with the Strymon Magneto, adding echo to an arpeggio from a Make Noise DPO.

Magneto is being clocked by a Tempi, and Magneto’s clock outputs 2, 3, and 4 are sent to a Morphagene’s shift input, a Noise Engineering’s algo input, and Ch4 of Maths which is modulating the decay of the envelope on the arpeggio.

Kick is from a self-oscillating Dave Smith DSM01 filter. Sequenced with a Winter Modular Eloquencer.

Here’s what he has to say about the technical details for the second patch:

Some more experimenting with the Strymon? Magneto under voltage control.

The pad is from a Make Noise? Morphagene, and both synth voices are from a DPO.

Reverb is from a Strymon BigSky.
