The Simplicity of the Electro-Harmonix 8 Step Program Step Sequencer
There is something to be said for the simplicity of an analog step sequencer. You may not be able to get equal-tempered 12 chromatic tone accuracy, but you can do a lot with mutating patterns on the fly. For those who are so concerned with pitch, the digital sequencing environment is definitely the way to go. For those who are more concerned with shape, changing patterns on the fly, and having the ability to route the patterns you create to just about anything, an analog step sequencer is the way to go.
In this week’s episode of Sunday Night Synthesis, we take a look at the Electro-Harmonix 8 Step Program analog step sequencer This episode also contains a few important announcements for those who follow the video tutorials series on YouTube.
Episode 12 – The Electro-Harmonix 8 Step Program
In this week’s episode, we take a look at the Electro-Harmonix 8 Step Program analog step sequencer. Dr. Moore demonstrates a number of different patch possibilities and methods of controlling parameters. It’s a great little device for creating patterns for pitches as well as filter cut-off frequencies. As usual, there’s a little jam toward the end.
