This video demonstrates the Grendel 2TAC 2-track analog controller with the Grendel RA-99 Grenadier analog synthesizer. The Grendel 2TAC has two tracks of CV-Gate output (1v/oct). For synchronization, it has an internal tempo generator, analog pulse-per-step Clock In/Out, and Reset pulse In/Out. This video tutorial shows some of its pattern editing features, time stretching, creating pattern chains, altering the tuning, mashing several patterns together simultaneously, and generating random patterns. We will be offering a limited issue of the 2TAC as pictured in the video with black aluminum case, walnut sides, and red or yellow LEDs. For visual reference, this version comes with the key commands printed as a graphic on the underside of the case.

RA-99 Demo Track: Contaminate Your Speakers
In this video demonstration we present a music track made entirely with sounds from the Grendel RA-99 Grenadier, plus synthetic speech from our MIDI Narrator. After the music track, the video presents a walk-through of how the sounds were created in detail. Annotated subtitles explain how to patch the RA-99 to get distorted bass drums, pink noise percussion, acid tones, and lead sounds. There is also a close up of how the synthetic voice is assembled in a DAW piano roll editor, using a MIDI keyboard map to arrange the SP0256A-AL2 allophones into words.
