Rachmaninoff on Moog Etherwave Pro Theremin

Jerry Martin purchased this elegant, limited-edition Moog Etherwave Pro Theremin with walnut back from us last week. He received it the other day and immediately shot this video! Anyone who has tried to play a Theremin knows how difficult it is. He does an amazing job considering he just received it. Here is what Jerry said of this video:

"Today was a big day in my theremin odyssey. My etherwave pro arrived - this beautiful instrument was sitting on a shelf at bigcitymusic waiting for someone to pick it out. Limited edition. This is within 10 mins of unpacking it - once I brush up some repertoire and get used to the beautiful linear pitch field I'll upload some more. Apologies for the less than perfect audio - this is recorded with an iPhone 4S. No editing."

Analogue Systems rs450 CV Recorder + Cwejman MMF-2 Stereo Multimode Filter

Here's a patch we made to show the new Analogue Systems rs450 CV Recorder/Sequencer and the Cwejman MMF-2 Stereo Multi-mode Filter module.  The Cwejman MMF-2 is filtering a basic saw wave bass from the Cwejman VCO-2RM running into a version of lowpass on the MMF-2.  The kick and snare were created using Analogue Systems modules.  The sixteenth note percussion is a modulated Cyndustries Zeroscillator through a Cwejman VCA, opened by the Cyndustries Four Transients module.

We've pre-recorded a few CV sequences into the incredible new Analogue Systems rs450 CV Recorder/Sequencer.  It's being clocked by an A.S. rs200 sequencer (which is running the whole patch actually).  We are switching between four or five preset sequences which in turn is controlling the pitch of a Cwejman RES-4 module.

The rhythms for this patch are derived from the 4ms Shuffling Clock Multiplier and we're also using a 4ms PEG module as a slow modulation source for the MMF-2.  Rad!
