I love my ACL Sinfonion − As I am a huge fan of generative sequencing but also a control freak; it′s basically the perfect quantizing centrepiece for my live performance modular synth. I love to use it with sequencers and all kind of random control voltages as well. I love the ″mode″ function, where you are able to play different chords with the option to also shift the bassline, melodies and arp without ever striking a wrong note − in whatever scale you can imagine. This thing is so precise, so well thought out and it even has a built-in voltage meter. It′s definitely the best quantizer I have ever met, and there is no extra functionality that I could wish for. Most recommended!
Simon Littauer is an electronic musician and composer from Denmark, with live-performance of modular synthesizers as a focal point in his work. As he is exploring how a performer interfaces with the electronic instrument, he designs his own machines and systems to augment the flexibility and expressivenes with haptic sensors, rythmic multiplicators and stochastic compositional techniques. His sound is dynamic, multilayered, fragmented and draws inspiration from electronic music giants such as Aphex Twin, Brian Eno and Autechre. Danish music magazine Soundvenue, describes his sound as ″the kind of music that makes you forget time and place, and makes the universe feels infinitely large and small at the same time″.
