Trovarsi Techno Tutorial

LA-based techno artist Trovarsi recently came by our shop to talk about modular synth techniques. If you're curious about how to make techno with a modular synth, this is a great place to start. In this demo, she shows that even the most modest setups can be powerful musical tools when approached with some fundamental techniques and a healthy dose of experimentation

Trovarsi uses a 62hp Intellijel Palette case of Noise Engineering modules to create an array of alien percussion, slithering bass lines, and frantic, aggressive leads. By linking several sequencers and modulation sources to a single clock source (the Horologic Solum), she keeps everything moving together. Her only sound sources are a Basimilus Iteritas Alter and a Manis Iteritas—but by deploying some clever patching, she expands these into a complex tapestry of fluid, yet aggressive sound.
