Video Description:

Pocket Operator PO-20 Arcade is a chord machine that Iv'e grown very fond of. Not only do I love this thing for it's small size and big sound. I also appreciate how Teenage Engineering has implemented the chord function! Here's my review!

ngarjuna - I Dream of What's-her-name

Reader ngarjuna sent in this interesting modular jam; which features iSpark on drums. If you're interested in sound design on modular synthesizers he did a video showing off the 4ms Spectral Multiband Resonator patch used in this piece.

Detailed walkthrough of the 4ms Spectral Multiband Resonator patches from Modular Jam 60
Modular Jam 60 video:

I had several people ask me about how I was sequencing the SMR so I made a video to demonstrate. I didn't walk through the process of setting up custom scales on the SMR but the guide in the User Manual is very good and accurate.

Not mentioned in the video but pertinent is the use of an LFO (sine) to the Resonance CV input. While I was setting up the patch I found triggers to be too short and anticlimactic but throwing 50/50 duty cycle gates at the input, while giving me the length and oomph I wanted, was giving me those double hits (SMR senses rising and falling on the input); a smooth LFO to the resonance input really smoothed this out and used it as sort of a pseudo-envelope (shaping the dynamics).

To clarify the matter of 'steps': when I refer to 'step' values such as 0.0-0.25V step1, 0.26-0.50V step2, etc. I'm referring to the steps on the SMR dial. The steps of the sequence itself (in Sequencer 1) are set to the musically relevant pattern, so not in ascending order. I probably should have used the term 'positions' instead of 'steps' there.
