2 ADSR envelopes, additional LFO, Bend range control, more.....
Whilst the fast envelopes on the MM-2 make it ideal for fantastic lead & bass lines you will also find that the sound of the
three oscillators 'beating' can produce the kind of rich and haunting sounds iconic of 1970's synthesis. The palette of sounds
available from the MM-2 is further enhanced by the possibility of modulating oscillators 1 & 2 pitch by the output of oscillator
3 at both audio & sub audio frequencies. This is in addition to a separate vibrato LFO, so you need not sacrifice an oscillator
in order to achieve a simple vibrato effect.
Each oscillator can produce six different raw waveforms, making for a thoroughly versatile sounding monosynth.
For version 2 we have totally redesigned the envelope and filter sections, plus a few little tweaks to other parts of the audio
path. The patch library has been completely updated to accommodate the version 2’s new dynamics.
We just plugged in the MM-2 and started rolling! This is what we used (pretty much available to everyone):
Acorn Masterkey 25 -> Sony Vaio laptop (1.8GHz) -> VST Host (Donationware) -> MM-2 + External effects* -> Record
External effects: 8xRv17 (Donationware), Magnus Jonsson - Ambience (Donationware),
kjaerhusaudio.com - Classic Delay (Donationware)
This was done in one take but was edited down to remove the most offensive playing.
Recorded in 16 bits, 44.1 Khz. A lot of volume smoothing has been applied by hand, post production, because MM-2’s patches
are not perfectly matched for volume. Master EQ and compression were also applied
(using VST plugin effects on another computer.) The recording was speeded up a bit too.
