I suspect the lucky collector will whisk it off to a high security warehouse not to be seen again until it goes up for auction at Sothebys in a few years.

Re: Beyond Generative: Seven months with one patch!

My original post had been seen 800 times and people thanked me for explaining how I did it.
Ironically, I hadn't seen this until the move made it show up as new in the index page. So many impressive things going on in this video! Thanks for sharing. I love the antennas.

Very sharp. It's a comfortable span and a 3 row system makes an attractive 3:4 ratio.

Re: Matrix mixer as a performance audio mixer?

Not so great for stereo, given size limits of matrix mixers, but for mono a nice way to organize things is to patch your voices to matrix mixer inputs, then allocate the matrix outs as a Dry mix and as many effects sends as there's room for. Then use any ordinary mixer to sum the Dry mix with all th...

:coffee: Just to recap. Three twins! What I've posted in this thread is from 100hp of euro modules. It's in a two row frame built deep enough to fit a six year-old Klangbau Koln Twinpeak Filter. I doubled down with a Klangbau Koln Twinpeak Resonator. An oscillator seemed necessary and that's a Klavi...

Re: "Best" Banana Color Scheme for New Format?

I like the Serge approach as seen in 80s and 90s (I stopped keeping track after the left Oakland). Mostly the color told you what kind of signal it is without further complicating by direction. Output jacks tended to be clumped together and surrounded by a line. Black is for AC coupled signals, usua...

Day one with PEQ2 but wow . :tu: It's following a small euro system I've been working on (featuring Klangbau Koln & NLC). I setup the three voices as attractive as I could make them, added the PEQ2, and hunted through the bands sweetening up. I was struck by how a few fairly mild settings significa...

This seems like a good place to ask about the two 2pin headers on the back of the Dual Divider. Marked "Clk" on the silkscreen. Ins? Outs? How do they interact with the Bus/Ext switch?

Semi generative cross connected synthesis

I'm fascinated by generative synthesis but what I find myself doing is not a pure example of that. I do rely on cross modulation and some chaos as well as more regular modulation sources and orderly clock dividers. There is a lot of intermingling of voices and effects. Relationships emerge from simp...

Re: Clock Dividers. Essential Range and Divisors?

The old Cynthia dividers for Modcan A format were a lot of fun. “The Rhythmic and Prime Divider modules are both comprised of seven independent frequency dividers with an input and logic-level output on each. The divider channels may be patched in series to derive any division factor. For example, t...

Re: Self generating patches....tips and ideas ?

Today's experiment
12fu-Generative_4441.jpg
LISTEN
The 11fu of modules above is making the foreground voice. The bamboo clatter is a separate setup and they are not interconnected.

The challenge was to fit a self-playing thing in one shallow 11fu frame. I'll try some variations.

Very nice splashy sounds in that! Maybe taking five years off did some good?

Here's a link to a recent example I posted to a thread you'd probably like....

Re: Delay devices. Where are we on that?

Re. Modcan Dual Delay... I think the scarcity and high used prices (especially a while back) was partly because it was not inexpensive to begin with and the number produced was not large. As somebody pointed out, its shortest delay setting barely touches Karplus effects. It's great for longish delay...

This is a longer improvisation with Klangbau Koln Twinpeak Filter and Resonator as sources. "On Reflection"...
