Benjolin rungler cv into the trigger. Other Benjolin outs as modulation. Swap them about, attenuate and some cool sounds can be found and a lot of stuff thats a bit meh.

Tetrapad/Tete for me. Magic combo for me. Also Pams.
How are you using them with the BIA?
With the Tete/Tetrapad in Combo mode, I’m using one fader in Euclidean mode to send triggers, then a Unipolar fader (or two) to change the parameters. Another quantized Unipolar fader to pitch if I want a bass or melodic line at the same time. The switches and LFO modes are also fun. It can get pretty crazy.

Pams can perform similar functions in a more basic way without the pitch control (but you could use a quantizer if you have one).
Ok, that sounds like it could yield some really hands on results. I was thinking about some sort of Tete/Tetrapad/Planar/Ladik K-010 combo for live interplay. Thank you.

Sure thing. Yeah it’s as hands on or hands off as you want. The way the Tete records is really cool to be able to constantly make big or small changes as you go. I wish I had room for a Planar.

Well kids, I needed a euro sequencer as well, so I ended up skipping the Mimetic Digitalis for now and went with a Metron along with a pair of Volteras.

All praise due to the Analogue Heaven sale this weekend for making this possible :hail:

Does BIA not accept negative voltages at all? My understanding is that the knobs on the new version are CV offsets when you have CV to the corresponding input. Do the inputs still ignore negative voltage in this case?

voltage block and planar2
but I really like the suggestion to feed it short envs

All NE oscillators accept 0-5v and have a tendency to glitch out when receiving negative voltage. It's a real shame! They suggest using Pons Asinorum which has a reverse envelope but it's a clunky workaround.
