Solo Trumpet Performance

From O|D Wiki

In this tutorial, we're going to learn about several new units, and sample editing features. We'll use these things to:

  • Play back recorded CV using the Card Player unit
  • Create sustain on a short sample using features of the sample player edit tools
  • Use the sample editing tools to edit our sample
  • Use the Ladder LPF and velocity CV to create a more realistic performance
  • Use a Custom Unit container to house the entire patch, and create a control to reset the performance as needed

This tutorial assumes you've gone through the prior tutorials on creating a subtractive synth, creating a drum rack, and re-sampling a complex single cycle waveform. We're going to assume you're getting more comfortable navigating the ER-301 and working with units, so the instructions will be a little less explicit, focusing more on new elements.

External Connections

You will need to make one cable connection to get started. We'll use channel 1 for this:

  1. Patch OUT1 to your mixer or sound card.

For more information about which inputs are appropriate for various signal types, see Front Panel Inputs.

Download the Required Files

The following zip files contains five files:

  • trumpet solo.wav - this is a recording of the finished product and will not be used in the tutorial. Use it as a point of comparison to determine if you've set everything up correctly.
  • trumpet-cv-Gate.wav - this is a recorded gate sequence
  • trumpet-cv-VOct.wav - this is a recorded pitch sequence
  • trumpet-cv-Velo.wav - this is a recorded velocity sequence
  • Trumpet C4.wav - this is a short trumpet sample

The trumpet-cv files were played on a keyboard, and the gate, pitch, and velocity voltages were recorded in real time using the ER-301's 6 track recorder.
