Step Sister first build - Mini sequencer controlled synthesizer - Featuring Daisy the cat
No animals were hurt during the making of this video. Seriously.
After a development period comprising of much swearing, procrastination and video gaming i have finally built my first test version of the Step Sister.
The Step Sister is a 1 to 10 analog step sequencer controlling a saw wave VCO, a low pass resonant VCF, and an AR envelope. There is also a gain knob which wave shapes the saw and over drives the filter. The steps in the analog sequencer can be set to any pitch rather than just notes in a scale and can be turned down low enough to be considered off, they have a useful range of about 3 1/2 octaves.
The Step Sister will be available to buy through my Etsy and Folksy shops once i've built a few more, they will be slighty more polished with a printed laminated legend above the controls instead of the Dymo labels.
This video also features some expert videobombing from Daisy the cat o_OMoog アナログ シンセサイザー 自作 キット モーグ Werkstatt-01 [並行輸入品]
