SH-201 ext. in techniques

Postby zedius » 22:26, 14 March 2008

Hi, just wanted to see what everyone is using the external audio input for.

So far the best use I have found is to turn the delay on full feedback and catch snippits of movies/porn/radio etc with the keyboard to create weird semi-random beats.

It occured to me today that I may be able to feed a drum machine or something into it and use all the synth capabilities of the sh-201 to my advantage.

Like mixing a bass drum with a low sine tone, by making sure the bass drum on the drum machine triggers a key on the synth. Does that make sense? This way I bet I could modulate beats like crazy with an external midi controller such as my kaoss pad 3.

Anyone try anything like this?

Well, I've been having fun mixing drums with tones now. It works nicely, plus you can use the d-beam to effect the input. I play drum loops through the audio input, set the d-beam to delay time, and I've got aphex twin.

Also, I had a lame piano sound with only an adr envelope. That pissed me off because I couldn't put the sustain to 0 like a real piano. So I plugged it through the audio input, and set my controller to trigger the notes on the sh-201, and used its adsr envelope. Worked like a charm.

That's a little ridiculous, I know, but I've got no piano sound ;)

I have an AM/FM radio (Emerson Simplicity) routed into an Alesis Ineko, then the Ineko is routed into the SH-201 inputs.

Some of my favorite sounds so far have come by using decimator or delay effects from the Ineko on the radio, then ring modding that with any of the SH-201 oscillators along with it's overdrive.

Quite noisy, I must say.

Sweet. I'll give that a shot with my kaoss pad 3. I've run a blank tape loop through it to give the tones some semi random hiss and click, like a vinyl skip. That was subtle, but pretty cool. Radio would be fun. I like the potential spontaneity of it.
