Feedback Analog Synth
Come tomorrow at the Coin de la Rue café, rue Saint-Malo in Brest: I'll be performing with Bretagne musicians at the RRRR jam. In addition to a clarinet or two, I'll be using for the first time a new analog synth built with guitar pedals:
Yes, you are right: before the analog signal path, I put a digital delay, to be used as a looper on a microphone input. But this mic is not necessary: the synth can also be used as a kind of a no-input mixer, with two ring modulators and a pitch-driven VCO (Voltage Controlled Oscillator).
This synth constitutes the core live electronics set-up for my up-coming composition Electroclarinet 4.
