Moog Filtatron Demo

I don't normally do iPad demos but i figured some of you might be interested in this app. It's the Moog Filtatron that was released yesterday.

In the demo I show using the internal oscillator and a couple of drum loops I recorded. There's also a line in option but you'd need something like the iRig to use that which I don't have.

It's a fun app but I'm not sure how much serious use it will get, still at $10 it's hardly a dent in the wallet.

Synth Drum Percussion

The inspiration for this little jam came from the cool poly mode on the Mono/Poly. When it's set to poly mode and the arpeggiator is running each oscillator is triggered one after the other. Combine that with some x-mod and you can get some nice synth percussion.

I then added an SH-101 bass drum, an MC-202 snare (noise patched in from the SH-101) and additional percussion from the A-100 modular. The A-115-5 is used for the synth bell tones and I'm also using the A-106-1 with self oscillation for a few blips.

The modular was triggered from the TR-606, though this is only used for triggers and not any sounds. All the drums are synthesized.

All that was left was to add a bassline from the TB-303 and record a little jam.

I'm using touchOSC and osculator to control Logic.
