Yep.  It's a NAMM video meant to capture the feel of being there!  :)

the<br>
&gt;&gt; modular. =A0I also wrote a small vst MIDI plugin which took the mu=

&gt;&gt; and distributed them out to 4 instances of the Silent Way voice pl=
ugin which<br>
&gt;&gt; would send the tuned pitch and VCA envelope CVs out to the modules=

&gt;&gt;<br>
&gt;&gt; Gives a very interesting flavour to the playing when each note is =

&gt;&gt; from different kinds of oscillator and VCA circuits.<br>
