euro 739,00 circa
A pattern played forward and backwards and remixed, with internal delay, and swing
This demo uses the Revolution for all bass, synth, bleeps, and squeaks, and a TR-909 for the drums. The variations for each synth part were created using the Remix feature, and all effects processing was from the Revolution as well.
This demo was inspired by Giorgio Moroder's classic. The Revolution was used to create the bass, lead, electro-growls, and filter screams. The internal effects were used to process the sounds of the Revolution. All the variations were created using the Remix feature. A Korg ES1 was used for the drums and white-noise swoosh.
Basslines & Leads
What the Revolution can do when the headphone output is plugged back into the filter input.
The feedback loop includes the internal effects and overdrive within the chain for further processing of the sounds. This technique can produce some truely bizarre results.
Headphone output plugged into the filter input, causing the filter to self oscillate.
Tthen take the kick drum output of the TR909 and plug it into the Revolution's CV input to modulate the filter cutoff,and manually sweep the filter's cutoff frequency. You can think of the Revolution as a semi-modular device, but you don't necessarily need to use traditional modifiers such as LFO's.
Audio sources can work just as well.
