Yarns + old midi controller question


Forgive the noob question but I wanted to make sure this would work before I pulled the trigger and purchased a Yarns module. It will sequence two Moog Mother 32’s from a midi keyboard? I use an ancient Yamaha p-70 that will only transmit midi data on one channel at a time.


For posterity, I will answer my own question. I have videos (I hope they came out okay) of my pianist using this set-up with my six piece group and it worked well.

I was unable to deal use shades to correctly offset the 1v in on the mothers and used an Erica synths Mscale. Yarns is incredibly simple to use and totally reliable.

Layout 2P should would be the correct setting, no?

Yeah. I had each Mother going into veils along with the keyboard sound. It is a great versatile performance set up for someone who can play piano. It’s easy to switch between a mono-synth (1M), two-voices (2p) or the piano sound.

Sadly the videos don’t show the pianist very well. iPhone isn’t the ideal medium for capturing a six piece band, but here are the clips anyways:

Well I love those videos! Great to see some music that isn’t a static shot of a blinking modules every once in a while.

Thank you for checking it out. My studio is too messy for home videos ha.
