"Modular Medley (Part 1 Only)"

"Modular Medley (Part 1 Only)" [4.5 MB .mp3]

Decided to post this two minute song as a stand-alone piece. Repeating what I wrote about it earlier:

Am continuing to explore using MIDI to control the Mutator filter (my one piece of vintage '90s gear).
About forty seconds into [this] you can hear mirror image patterns written in the pitchbend controller grids of Cubase--one pattern for the left channel and one for the right, so there is an antiphonal effect. The sequences are "carving" pitch information out of a sustained synth note played into the filter's external audio input (and split by the filter into stereo channels). Pitched down an octave it reminds me of the eerie tuned drum bass note Goblin uses on the Suspiria soundtrack--it's instantly recognizable if you know the movie.

The intro and ending are done with the Modular-Mini 2 Reaktor instrument.
