Motion Sequences are tempo-synchronized, completely customizable control sequences which can be assigned to virtually any synthesizer parameter - and provide incredibly creative new ways of programming sound. In this lesson from our own Bad Mister, learn more about how the Motion Sequence dedicated controls on the front panel make it easy to manipulate and change in real-time, providing incredible interactivity and expression.

In this lesson, Bad Mister explains the "Side Chain" function of the Motion Control Synthesis Engine which allows for modifying one Part with another. It also extends to the external world as well, because the source PART could be an external input (microphone, guitar, audio device, etc.). This can take several forms and in this session, we'll take a brief look at three of the basic possibilities - including one popular in Electronic Dance Music.
In this lesson, Bad Mister introduces us to to how to leverage the Controller Box Switches.
