Are the NE patch ideas on here or elsewhere?

👆thx! just added the link to the post above, too. cheers.
Thank you thank you to you both there are some really good ideas and thought trains on that site too. :tu:

I ran the three outputs of Euclidean Circles into a mixer and fed the clock a square wave at audio rate from one of my oscillators. Changing the fills and lengths of the euclidean rhythms made some really cool and complex harmonics. 1 v/o into the oscillator lets you play the EC musically.

my small discovery today was probably nothing new for some. I was trying to make cymbals with basic analog modules and thought the ring modulation was a way to get some nice complex harmonic dependencies. Of course using two oscs ringmodulating each other is way too "simple" so the first thing I did was replace one osc with noise. That got me more into the cymbal territory but sounded crap. The low frequencies of the noise seemed to destroy the thing. And the lack of a 2nd "tone" was avoiding the generation of the complex (dis)harmonies. So I used a Hipass filter on the noise at around 6 kHz and that was much better. But only when I increased the resonance on the hi pass to nearly selfoscillation really convincing cymbals appeared. The results got even better when I used a VCA instead of a ringmodulator cutting the negative portions of the modulator. The result goes into a lowpass filter CVed by an AR envelope and slighly distorted.

now don't tell me that that is the established way to do it because I found it out all by myself and learned more than I would have by reading a book about it :-) :-)

Suggestions of refinement and other ways to do it would be greatly appreciated.

My small discovery today is that the US mail system is A) very disorganized, and B) slow, probably due to Covid.

Not so much a discovery as a rant I guess :)

It's always been at least a little screwy, but they're super flaky right now.

Recently I shipped something from Missouri to Louisiana, and it went to New Hampshire first. And my spouse ordered something from California, it came to St. Louis, and then they sent it off to Ybor City, Florida for a couple of days before returning it to St. Louis. :doh:

For me; LA to Newark, stayed in Newark for 10 days, out to Seattle, then over to Detroit. That's not exact but very close, used big cities for reference.

Btw, I am getting my first module :sb:

Today I learned that you can overdrive a Belgrad using it as a vco, resonance up all the way then turn the cutoff into deep bass territory. Plugged a wogglebug stepped into the 1v/oct with a slow clock into the tempo. Sounds like a bass player stoned out of his mind playing sludgy metal bass lines. Plug more modulation into the balance and he’ll play up the fret board into squealing feedback. It’s basic but it sounds cool AF :sb:

The Belgrad Filter sounds really good as an Oscillator, nice tones.

Forgot to mention that the out on the Belgrad was going through an Ultrafold. Sounded kinda like running a bass guitar through a Boss distortion pedal. Sometimes it’s the little things that count.
