This was my first MuchoSuavo synth jam ever using my 2 cabinet, 44 space analog modular synthesizer. This synth is made in the same format as the infamous, old Moog modular synthesizer systems manufactured by Bob Moog in sixties and seventies. They are some of the most classic and renowned synths in history because of their massive sound, Synthesizers.com is a relatively new synth company that has made these Moog style modulars very affordable and practical for musicians and hobbyists around the world. The day I recorded this particular synth jam video was the day that I received my second cabinet along with my Q119 analog sequencer and a few other exciting and necessary new modules. Each module has a specific purpose, and depending on your funds, you can just keep buying more and seeing what happens when you link different combinations of modules together in all kinds of crazy ways. One of the main things I love about modular synthesizers is that they are literally completely customizable; especially if you know a little about soldering and working with electronics. Then there is nothing stopping you from building your very own modular synth from the ground up with a little bit of help from expert synth builders. Roger Arrick is the owner of Synthesizers.com. He's a genuinely nice dude and loves to make his customers' lives as easy as possible when it comes to synth related stuff. There are many different modular synth manufacturers but Roger and his team at Synthesizers.com are some of the best around, and they make some gnarly synths!
In this video I am using a 44 space portable modular synth from Synthesizers.com. At the time, the Q119 was extremely new to me, so I was just figuring out how to use it. One of my favorite features of the Q119 is that each of the three rows on it has an output jack for the gate signal and an output jack for the pitch signal. Because of this feature, you can actually send each row's pitch to three separate oscillators which will create three different melodies that play simultaneously. That is exactly what I did here on this MuchoSuavo Synth Jam. Pretty cool stuff! All three oscillators were then patched back into an audio mixer, which I sent out to a filter and then into the voltage controlled amplifier. I now have a lot more knowledge about and experience with my synthesizer, but this is still one of my favorite patch tricks! Thanks for watching!
