Help with setting up other equipment with the Deluge (Grandmother, Micromonsta and Keystep)
I've just ordered a Deluge and I'm super excited for it to arrive! In the mean time, I wanted to understand how I can incorporate it into my setup and what additional kit I need buy to make it work.
So I want to use the Deluge as my main groovebox; particularly as a drum machine, sequencer, sampler and master effects box.
Then connected to the deluge I would like 2 things with the functionality as follows:
- Connect a Moog Grandmother such that:
a) I can use the Deluge to midi or CV control the Grandmother on a note wise basis (effectively using the sequencer on the Deluge to play the oscillators on the Grandmother).
b) I can use the Grandmother keyboard to send MIDI notes to the Deluge (basically so I can use the Grandmother keyboard to create a live recorded sequence that is stored in the deluge that includes velocity information too).
c) I can apply the Deluge's effects to the Grandmother track.
d) I can re-sample the audio from the Grandmother to use as samples in the Deluge.
The Grandmother has a MIDI usb, DIN MIDI in, thru and out.
- Connect an Audiothingies Micromonsta (which is a digital wavetable synthesizer) and an Arturia Keystep to control it through the Deluge in a similar way that I described above such that the Deluge will send MIDI notes to the Micromonsta to play according to the Deluge sequencer, and the Keystep will act as a MIDI controller for the Micromonsta through the Deluge. I would also like to apply the Deluge's effects to and re-sample the Micromonsta audio output into the Deluge if that's possible too.
The Micromonsta and Keystep both have MIDI usb, DIN MIDI in, and out.
I'd like to know if this is all possible, how I could go about setting it up and what kit/wires I would need to buy to make it happen. At the moment I have zero leads/wires to connect anything and I have no MIDI or audio interfaces.
Ultimately I want to have an audio output left and right that I can either plug headphones into or a sound system.
Any help would be greatly appreciated
