A simple, yet effective way to get some arcade-like chord stabs with the USTA sequencer!
- 1 USTA
- 1 FALISTRI (envelope)
- BRENSO or FALISTRI to taste (sound sources)
- 1 333
- On the USTA sequencer, select a track and push the Navigation Encoder to access the Track Menu. Scroll until the CV B option, then select Pitch.
(In this way, both the selected track’s CV outputs will be quantized to the selected scale).
- Repeat the operation on other tracks until you reach the number of chord voices you need.
- Write down the chord voicings, one voice per CV channel.
(Make sure that all the tracks have the same clock settings and Length values!)
- Patch the CV outputs to the V/oct input of all the sound sources (here we use FALISTRI and the green section of the BRENSO).
- Patch the output of the sound sources to the 333. Activate the -6dB switch to prevent it from saturating.
- Patch the output of the 333 to a CGM Channel.
- Write the gate pattern on one of the chord tracks’ Gate channel (here we use Track 2 CV A).
- Patch the gate output to the Trig/Gate input of a FALISTRI set to work in Hold mode.
- Patch the unipolar output of this FALISTRI to the CGM channel’s VCA CV input.
- (Optional) Write a bassline on another track.
