This is a tutorial video about the SEQ16 pitch and gate sequencer module for the AE Modular system from tangible waves. I’m explaining the different inputs, outputs and controls and demonstrate how to clock it from a simple LFO or via MIDI. The SEQ16 is quite unique because you only tune up to 5 notes which you can then assign to each step. This is a limitation, but also makes tuning so much easier than with other sequencers, especially if you don’t have a quantizer.
Patch Challenge #10
Welcome to the studio
I spent some time over the weekend to reorganise my little synth desk and integrated my new Korg Volca Sample with the KeyStep and AE Modular. I then setup the mixer to mix the AE and microphone and send it all to the audio interface so that I can now record my voice and the synth at the same time with my trusty old iPhone 5.
Getting Started 03 – TRIQ164
In this video I’m demonstrating how to use the TRIQ164 and how to create a basic patch for percussive sounds that can be triggered.

Getting Started 02 – Connecting CV Pitch and Gate
In this tutorial I quickly demonstrate how to connect the Arturia KeyStep to the AE Modular via the CV Pitch and CV Gate outputs.
Getting Started 01 – Power, Audio and MIDI
This is the first video in a series of tutorial videos that I’m planning to produce. This is for people that are totally new to the world of modular synthesis or have used synthesizers before, but are a bit confounded by the AE Modular system and its unique approach to making music.
In this video I’m first explaining how to connect the AE Modular to a mobile charger for power, how to connect it to a battery powered speaker and then I’ll show how to connect a MIDI keyboard for playing notes.
