When surfing the web earlier this week, I ran across a video that demonstrates the filter section of our ’14 Analogsynthesizer. Mark Pigott, the guy who made it uses the filter’s resonance to create a sine wave that is played over the keyboard and by the build in arpeggiator.
When designing the synthesizer we took special care to make the filter playable over the complete keyboard range. As you can see in the video: it works very well.
I like the way Mark is using the EG IN parameter for fine-tuning the cutoff frequency. That's a great solution for adjusting the pitch to fit in your musical context.
Some words about the ’14 Analogsynthesizer’s arpeggiator
For most patterns you can select a range of one, two or three octaves. Mark for example uses UP+DOWN with three octaves in the video. But what you hear seems not to follow this pattern. That’s because if the ’14 Analogsynthesizer’s arpeggiator reaches the highest note that can be played it automatically transposes the pattern one octave down to fit within the synthesizer’s pitch range.
As a result you will get some melodies that you might not have expected.
BTW: The ’14 Analogsynthesizer’s keyboard can send out polyphonic MIDI information and can also be set for not sending the arpeggio. That’s a really cool feature. For instance you can play an underlying pad sound on an external polyphonic synthesizer while the arpeggiator controls the internal sound engine of the ’14 Analogsynthesizer.
Thanks to Mark Pigott for creating that video. I hope that we can see some more ’14 Analogsynthesizer-stuff from him.
