Some Solid APC Action

Good evening! (or I guess it's early morning already on the east coast :) last weekend I composed a song using my new Atari Punk Console. Behold!

Bought this APC off ebay from the very awesome ProperBoy, who sells all sorts of analog goodies.  Here's the song:

Come Find Her  by  esbie

My first stab using the APC as a compositional element was trying to sound edgy and sophisticated, but ended up sounding more creepy than anything else :P Two things that would really make work with the APC easier are
  1. a gating mechanism. Right now the unit is really only capable of creating one loooooong note, haha
  2. a midi to control voltage converter... or possibly, as properboy suggested, an analog step sequencer
Basically my problems boil down to the fact that all my gear is digital, which doesn't always play nice with analog. Which is a shame, because I'm really loving the glitchy things analog can do.
