Re: Making LFOs more complex

LFO into wavefolder. Then modulate the wavefolder. Maybe with the LFO.

26 hp: osc, filt, seq, mod

I am looking for suggestions on how to best fill the 26 hp I have available after the recent expansion. The things I most find myself wanting are an oscillator, filter, sequencer, and modulation source. My interests are primarily in generative systems and patch programming. My goal is to patch netwo...

Re: Best random generator for musical phrases

Lately I've been playing with the NLC Bindubba sequencer, which has a 4x4 grid of knobs to control 16 steps. Movement is controlled by separate x- and y-axis clocks, so varying the clocks varies the pattern. I've been using two channels of Grids to clock the sequencer and then using slow LFOs to mod...

Re: Put your Album Release into this Thread!

This is a series of recordings made from the same patch on a modular synthesizer. The patch mostly plays itself, though there are a few places where I adjust a filter cutoff or envelope. All the recordings are live with minimal post-processing (only reverb, compression, and EQ applied). http://wiggi...

Re: Does this functionality exist in a switch module?

Seems to me that Frames could do this. Trigger into all then set four key frames with the desired outputs.

Re: MI Streams - How are you using it?

It took me a while to get to like Streams, but it has been very versatile for me now that I've gotten more used to it. I primarily use it for the LPG and envelope follower modes and occasionally for compression. I've haven't used the envelope/VCF/VCA much lately. Not surprisingly it pairs very well ...

Re: Why do I need an envelope follower?

The Disting is also DC coupled and can be used as a cv delay.

Re: Why do I need an envelope follower?

Envelope followers are great for external signals, but I also like using them for internal signals as well. In a typical patch I may have four voices going each doing their own thing. With an envelope follower I can use one voice to modulate some aspect of another. One favorite trick of mine is to r...

Re: What are your goals when it comes to modular synthesis?

My goal when I started was just to start making some music, to have a creative outlet other than writing poetry (which is hard) or doing improvisational theater (for which I'm dependent on a successful audition). Along the way, I've discovered that what I like best is building patches that will run ...

I've done some explorations with this exact use case: harmonica into modular. I have a Disting mk III that does pitch-to-CV and also the RS-35. I have found the RS-35 to perform much better at this task. Because I'm using a mic, there is always a bit of ambient noise in the input signal whenever I'm...

Euro: Faux Shift Register

Something I've been playing with lately: using two Ornament & Crime modules to create a shift register simulation. O&C #1 runs the Quadraturia app, with the four LFOs set out of phase in quadrature mode. These outputs are fed into the second O&C in the Quantermain app. Select your favorite scale, gi...

Just match the red stripe to -12 v. The direction the cable wants to lie in just depends on how the connector was attached.

I think Rings would be a good choice. It's very easy to get nice sounds and doesn't require much patching to do so.

What kind of music is this? I've just released my first solo album, Árboles. Entirely made with my modular synth, recorded live to DAW with minimal post processing.

I do one-take recordings ... over and over again.

As I build the patch, I'll record some takes. As the patch ev...

I've also got two--one original and one hemispheres. Before hemispheres I would have happily had two running the original firmware. So dang useful and I don't mind the menu-diving (in either firmware) because it is easy and intuitive and once I've got it dialed in to the patch, I can leave it alone ...
