Ericas neuer Black Sequencer mit Hüllkurven und MIDI

Erica Black SequencerErica Black Sequencer

Ein neuer Sequencer für Melodien im Eurorack Format heißt einfach „Black Sequencer“. Er bietet MIDI und CV Anschlüsse und ist eine Ergänzung zum großen Drum (Trigger-)Sequencer.

Direkt mit 16 Knöpfen in quadratischer Anordnung lassen sich 16 Werte direkt einstellen. Er beherrscht Ratcheting (Roll) und somit sehr sehr schnelle Trigger innerhalb eines Events. Man tippt vermutlich CV, Gate, Ratchet’n’Roll etc. an und kann direkt über die Encoder die Sequenz jeweils 16er-Weise einstellen. Es gibt 4 CV  Ausgänge, Gate und diverse Steuereingänge und auch eine Hüllkurvendarstellung, die vermuten lässt, dass ein Step auch einen per Software generierten Hüllkurven-Ramp aufgeben kann. Ob dies pro Trigger oder extra als einer der CVs sein kann ist noch nicht direkt zu sehen.

Sicher isst aber, dass dieser Sequencer vermutlich noch etwas mehr kann als klassische Konzepte und vielleicht haben sie auch Elemente von Make Noise Rene.

Ob auch mehr als 16 Steps über Bank-Schalter oder Pattern Taster möglich sind, ist nicht eindeutig zu erkennen. Beim Drumsequencer war das der Fall, deshalb ist gut möglich, dass es sich auch hier um mehr als einen Takt handeln könnte.

You can learn a lot from Surgeon’s live rigs

Our friends at Resident Advisor took a peek at the techno legend’s battle-tested live rigs. And it’s not so much about gear – it says a lot about musical technique.

First, it’s simple but irresistible – Surgeon’s live rig is devastatingly effective, thanks to some economical decision making and inarguable musicianship:

  • Octatrack – six drum sounds, some backing tracks
  • LEPLOOP – FM oscillators, noise, and then sequenced sample and hold and LFO, plus it filters and delays the Octatrack
  • Faderfox controller accesses Octatrack parameters without menu diving (the PC4 pot controller, though see also the new EC4 if you prefer encoders and display)
  • OTO Machines BOUM – compressor/warmer

Laboratorio Elettronico Popolare’s LEPLOOP is the unexpected star of this one – a unique sequencer – synth – drum machine. Surgeon does say that devices tend to come and go, but I’m glad RA caught him with the LEPLOOP in the mix – it’s really adding a lot of dynamism to his sets at the moment. (Well, and it’s nice when the lesser-known gear gets some love!)

It’s also interesting that he uses the BOUM as a kind of glue to keep things from jumping out in the mix.

“It does make you want to … jump around.” Hell, yes.

He also takes a look at the “abstract” live set. Actually, I think this is more idiosyncratic – meaning it’s harder to learn from how he works. So, sure, the inexpensive SH-01A from Roland makes loads of sense – it’s a melodic favorite of mine, and I think a more versatile instrument than the all-about-acid 303s everyone has talked about lately. (I’m sticking with its Juno sibling, myself, but the SH-01A is my other favorite Boutique.) And the LYRA-8 is simply dreamy – it’s the creation of the wonderful SOMA, who I’ve profiled.

Maybe the most telling part of this is the Electro-Harmonix looper, the 45000. Just as the techno set is all about controlled modulation, the spice of the LEPLOOP atop the foundation of the Octatrack, here the composition focuses on the looper’s structure. That allows spontaneous layering of new material, with the regular patterns from the Roland and Lyra building up a skeleton.

There’s a full feature interview on RA, and well worth a read – it’s a must if you’re a Surgeon fan, but full of sage advice even if your own music lies in another idiom.

The Art Of Production: Surgeon

The whole series from RA has been great, but I’d wager this one may be the most useful to other artists – and of course, I’m a sucker for anyone talking about how they actually play live.

For some longer-form discussion with Surgeon, he also gave a recorded 45-minute talk at Berlin landmark SchneidersLaden:

Oh yeah, and the set? It’s a couple of years old, but here’s a nice video from Glasgow:
