This video captures a live performance by synthesist John L Rice, combining imitative synth leads with modular sequences.
Here’s what he shared about the technical details:
The 569 sequencer is again in 2×16 mode and using the same tuning as the last few videos. The difference this time is I patched two gate outputs from the 569EGB rows 1 and 2 into the two 564 sequential switches and then patched all 8 outputs, 4 each, from the 564 switches into rows 1 and 2 of the 569ES. The 564 switches are shifted by the 554 Octal Clock divider, which is normal’d to the Corsynth C102 LFO which is the master clock and also is shifting the 569.
The sequenced voice is a single Martin Jan Koehler VCO, the Tidal Modulator, which is a 5U version of Mutable Instruments Tides module. All four outputs get voiced separately but at the same time with 1/2 of a Moon 517 VCF, 1/2 of an Oakely Dual VCA, and 1/5 of a Club Of The Knobs C911P poly EG. Each voice goes to a separate input of the Allen & Heath MixWizard and panned evenly across the stereo field. A Krisp1 OCTO LFO modulates 4 of the Tidal Modulator’s parameters.
The solo voice is a Roland Integra7 played via a Roland A-88 keyboard.
Effects used are the usual Strymon BigSky and Timeline pedals and the Lexicon MX400.
