After a few weeks wait for the package to arrive from the UK I finally had the very first third party module for the AE Modular system in my hand! Now I just had to build it as I was a cheapskate and got the DIY version. Good time for making a how to video though …
In this video I’m explaining in detail how I made the patch for the “Don’t go in there!” video which had a bit of a creepy vibe.
The modules featured are POLAMIX, 3VCSWITCH, SPRING REVERB, DELAY, FMOS, SAWVOX and many more.
This an introduction to the new digital oscillator modules from tangible waves, the SAWVOX and FMOS.
In this video I’m deconstructing the patch of my previous performance, the 5 Oscillator drone.
The GRAINS module is basically a tiny computer inside your AE Modular that can be programmed to do just about anything sound wise. Because the AE GRAINS is a direct clone of the Eurorack GRAINS you can install the same set of firmwares on it, just as I’ve described on my first video about Getting Started with GRAINS.
Now a very talented software developer from Germany, Mathias aka @visuellemusik, has developed a few new firmwares exclusively for the GRAINS module. These will only work in the AE GRAINS and not on the Eurorack version because the AE has one added input for Audio and one added output for digital signals and some of the new firmwares use one or both of these.
You can find those programs on Github here: https://github.com/aemodular/GRAINS
Below are my first three tutorial videos.
What are you going to do with the GRAINS module? Please post your creations or code on the forum!
This is an introduction to the AE Modular GRAINS module.
You can find detailed information on the AE Modular Wiki.
Showing a really quick and easy way to tune the SEQ16 by using a MIDI keyboard and your ears.
In this video I will show you how I record the audio of my AE Modular when making these videos. I use the Behringer UCA 202 or UCA 222 audio interface to connect straight with my iPhone or Android phone while recording the video. When out and about I also use the Zoom H1n to record only audio.
In this video I’m explaining how the AE Modular 3VCSWITCH works and how to use it in a patch. This is an odd and interesting module and applications aren’t easily apparent, so I hope you get some ideas from this.
