Gamechanger Audio has released a music video that showcases their MotorSynth MKII, which recently began shipping.
GAC “crew members” Tom and Matiss have teamed up as musical duo OIL & GAS, to compose a synth & drums performance that Gamechanger Audio says “may have created the heaviest Synth and Drums band around”:
The song is built around the MOTOR Synth’s audio signal input – a feature that can be useful in many applications, especially live performances. Notice how the kick drum is set up to trigger one of the MOTOR Synth’s voices thus creating a tight bassline that’s perfectly in time with every beat.
Here’s how the setup works: the bass and lead parts are performed on the MOTOR Synth simultaneously. The lead line is performed on the built-in 8-button keybed and arpeggiator. The bass part sequences are programmed with the built-in sequencer that is being triggered by the kick drum mic connected to the MOTOR Synths audio input.
The MOTOR Synth is in split output mode, where each motor voice is routed through a separate output channel. Each voice is then routed through individual signal paths. The lead voice goes through the BIGSBY Pedal pitch shifter and a stereo delay. The bass voice goes through the PLASMA Coil, LIGHT Pedal, and into a bass amp. The final bass sound is a mix of a DI from the Motor Synth and a mic on the bass cabinet.
