To celebrate the recent release of the Arpitecht, WMD’s newest module, company founder and lead designer William Mathewson put a patch together showing off what he had in mind when designing the module.
The Arpitecht module is a voltage-controlled Quantizer and rhythmic arpeggio generator.
WMD’s sales manager Alex Anderson says, “The result was an awesome, lo-fi vibe paired with a half-time, hip hop style beat that brought every one in the shop out to the front room to see what was going on. We had a blast filming this performance and hope you enjoy watching it as much as we enjoyed making it.”
Mathewson’s WMD Test Lab set was a reprise of a performance at a monthly “Freq Boutique” party thrown by Anderson. He describes the party as “a low pressure showcase of modular synths and electronic music in general. Very similar to an open mic format, but with modular synth nerds instead of singer/ songwriters. After each performance, there is a little Q+A with the performer to spark conversation with the audience.”
The Freq Boutique shows aren’t recorded, but Anderson says he regretted not capturing this one. The next day, they recreated the performance and the result is this video.
