After we finished editing the MIDI 101 videos, Ned had a room full of synthesizers all wired up with no-where to go. Ned took care of that – Sample this, remix it, make something out of it – it’s a Sequencer Jam Session, just the thing to start out August.

Here’s what’s wired up:

  • The SQ-1 Sequencer controls the MS-20 via control voltage
  • The same sequencer sends MIDI note info to the microKorg.
  • The microKorg plays, and passes the MIDI note info along to the Kawai K3.
  • The K3 plays, and passes the MIDI note into along to the Kawai K5.

All of the instruments pass through Ableton, but only the Lyricon (K5) got any special treatment (I applied a couple of virtual guitar pedals). The rest of the video and audio is as it was created. No post on the audio of any kind, and the video was edited only to add captions.
