Melodic Splices – Morphagene
In my previous video (see link), I found a cool way to work with granular synths by creating granular buffers in a melodic scale. This makes it much easier to pick a segment and use it as a pitched voice without affecting playback speed. Obviously, people wanted to know if such a thing would also work with Morphagene. Unfortunately, the Morph is a looper and doesn’t support buffers and reversible enveloped polyphonic grains. Fortunately, the Morph is not alone in the Shared System. So I’ve created a reel with splices (markers) for each note. You can then pick a splice with a ‘Shift’ trigger or ‘Organize’ CV.
I’ve added to the illusion with two Maths envelopes and FX from Erbe-Verb and Mimeophon. Finally, there’s a cool X-PAN tip you may want to explore: mixing CV. I consider X-PAN a vital part of the Shared System, even though it’s not in there by default. It turns your mono synth into glorious stereo.
