    Playing around with Steve Reich's "Piano Phase" on a Make Noise/Expert Sleepers 3U, with a little help from a Korg NanoKontrol and Ableton Live. Ableton details: Nanokontrol channels 1-4 control the signal inputs (DPO A sine, DPO A saw, DPO B sine, DPO B final): Fader: Input level Top button: turns Beat Repeat on/off Middle button (not used here): toggles Beat Repeat output mode (Mix/Insert/Gate) Bottom button: Engages record/overdub on a Looper (via sends A, B, C, D) Nanokontrol channels 5-8 control the returns (A, B, C, D, each containing a Looper effect): Faders: Return level Top button: activates/deactivates Looper Middle button (not used here): pitches loop up Bottom button (not used here): pitches loop down The MIDI file used here was downloaded from the following link: http://explodingart.com/jmusic/jmtutorial/PianoPhase.html "Piano Phase" can be heard here: http://youtu.be/uQihuaedvSU Steve Reich's website: http://www.stevereich.com/ www.diode-ring.com

              Processing the modular (Echophon Clock output) through a Max patch, then processing the Max patch through the modular (Z-DSP (Stereo Ping Pong delay program)), all controlled with a Korg nanoKontrol. The Max patch is a bank of "reson~" objects, divided into values taken from the Buchla 296e, Serge Resonant EQ, Moog 914, ADDAC VC Fixed Filterbank, Moog/Bode Vocoder and EMS 3000 Vocoder units, with both manual and automated control over each band's amplitude (displayed as sliders). The patch is mono in/stereo out, with each band alternating between the left and right outputs. www.theshamblers.blogspot.com

              • Ring modulated mixing bowl

                from Peter Speer / Added

                A suspended mixing bowl ring modulated against one of the DPO's sines. An Echophon adds pitch shifting and echo. Pressure Points T-Gate out --> Maths Signal in, Maths out controls VCA with ring mod, VCA out --> Echophon Signal in. The slider positions control values in Max, which are sent into the patch as voltages through the ES-3. www.theshamblers.blogspot.com

                  A quick test to see how a mostly-working Arp 2600 reacts to control from Max/MSP. Max (via the ES-3) is controlling the frequency of all three VCOs, as well as the cutoff for the filter and opening the 2600's VCA. www.theshamblers.blogspot.com

                      This is an original composition, played live on the Eigenharp Alpha and looped for some parts. This song can be downloaded from SoundCloud: http://soundcloud.com/gbevin/sometimes-is-not-enough It uses a single sound on my Moog Slim Phatty for all the sections of the song. This one of the challenges that I've been setting for myself. I want to create only a few very expressive and versatile sounds that I perfectly learn to play on the Eigenharp in all their nuances, as opposed an arsenal of thousands of sounds that are totally unconnected from myself. Here I'm driving the Slim Phatty over Control Voltage, giving me an incredibly detailed connection to the expression of the sound. This is possible thanks to the Expert Sleepers ES-3 module which converts the data from the Eigenharp over digital ADAT audio to Direct Current. Pressure on the keys is tied to volume, left-right movement to filter cutoff and up-down movement to pitch. I'm additionally controlling distortion through the breath pipe of the Alpha and delay feedback through its strip controller, both are AudioUnit effects from Rob Papen. The looping is done through Mobius and is controlled through a Rig Kontrol USB MIDI footpedal.
