Text from the video :
  • A short video of me playing around with a 1 cabinet Roland System 700. This was an experiment to see what kind of sounds I could make without patchcords. :)

Thanks for posting my video on your blog! :)

I have to admit that I'm really not much of a synthesist or a musician.
I love the idea of generating sound by mutating waveforms. If it sounds musical, all the better!

There's an earlier part of this video you don't see where I'm fumbling my way around the synth and asking my husband how to do certain things, like how to make noise without using the keyboard. ;)

One thing I really love about the System 700 is that it kinda works like an Arp 2600 in the way that things are normaled and can be accessed with sliders. I tend to find my way around them better than I can on a Moog Modular because of that feature.

To my right is a Buchla 100 modular that's here for restoration. I'll definitely post video once that's finished, as I LOVE Buchlas, and haven't played with one for years!
