FLUX-TM, triggerstreams vs. your Samplers & Modules

Post by Funky40 » Thu Oct 08, 2020 1:26 pm

Ok, here a thread dedicated to the new Flux Time Modulation Sequenzer,
to focus on listings of Modules and Samplers that work great with the Flux-TM in conjunction with its Triggerstreams,
and to discuss latencys -of Samplers for example- and what problems or limitations this would cause.
I see CV2midi trigger streams vs. the FLUX also as a topic to place here


it would be great if we could keep "these sort of discussion" here in this Thread
(topic: latencys vs. triggerstreams coming from the FLUX)



if you think i should change the thread title to something better, just post (i´m not english native).
but i want the first term to be "FLUX"

works great for me:
MI Rings :lol:
Edit: sending trigger streams to Clouds is cool


you could turn somebody going crazy with what i´m just doing :hihi:

Following as well, mine should be in the 2nd batch and I have the old BitBox as well as the Assimil8or
if no one else.

i think in the meantime that the whole subject here is a bit of a exaggerating, since the situation as such is in fact quite simple:
patch a VCOs pulsewave to any sampler or module you want to test how fast it would follow a trigger stream.
just make the pulse very spiky.
and check how far you get. ;)

i think the topic does makes sense nevertheless, there should be enough to share.




as allready mentioned, my first observation is that triggering the grain extraction in Clouds with the trigger stream from Flux is just a perfect match, with denser trigger streams going.

i triggered the BIA but find it boring. i even might sell it now. its so static and boring compared to do the rings into clouds thing.
BIA can´t go spiky enough by itself.


also supercool, but i just touched it for a few seconds bevore i had to leave, was:
Wavetable VCO with a spectral very rich sound, VCAed by a very spiky envelope,
triggered by a triggerstream from Flux.

the possible spikyness of your sound is here the trick.
Peaks in Drummode works also superwell.

HA, i can forsee that many MI fanboys want to have a Flux.
seems like the perfect match for any MI module i suspect.
i still have a braids, and by coinsidence installed. i might check tomorrow.

also, i could imagine that some funky patches are possible with retriggering VCOs on their sync input,
when doing some DIY-patching "complex-VCO" patches with complex cross sync&TZFM modulations.


i had a short test with two drum samplers. that was boring for me.
right now do i feel like i want to dive into totally different areas when working a triggerstream from Flux than just to trigger some boring samples. It really can become part of your soundsynthesis.
edit: the trick here is that the triggerstream from Flux feels quite rapidly VERY musical !
i just made random adjustments. you can even jam with doing adjustments on the fly.......and thats just the very beginning (for me) of using of what the module all can do.
its super rapidly very musical, thus also its usefullness for different styles of patches, we´ve maybe not donne bevore since we didn´t had that sort of control over fast triggerstreams.
( i only use one trigger stream at a time for now / which was finally also my original intention how i´d wanted to use the module )

sorry, for long postings, it has me enthusiastic :hihi: ;)

Aside: to shine BIA requires a LOT of modulation, and in my experience, some of that modulation is most effective when fluctuating (e.g., envelope) over the course of the decay of the voice. Doesn’t seem like a good candidate for frantic triggering from a Flux, although I still don’t really understand the modulation chops of the Flux, so maybe there’s something there?

I’ll be eagerly reading and contributing to this thread when my Flux arrives.

agreed. thats what i did in the past.
right now is all my modulation off, since i had to take my FH-2 with the exapnders out ( the expanders did not worked any longer, lotsa troubles to debug)
a workaround with BIA is ofcourse to use a external VCA/ENV

but fun thing with Rings is, not every trigger sounds the same.
thats a good match for denser trigger streams from Flux.

yeah, i don´t understand the modulation thing of Flux either so far, but i allready use it, hehe


honestly, all i patched so far was only strange crap,
a sort of music i never did bevore, a music with which you could turn people to go Crazy or mad.
strange repeating very electronic rhytms........but it just had something mesmerizing to it.
ofcourse were the best bits on the start of my first jamm.....so i would not record anything when i finally thought i should, lol

For what it’s worth, WMD Fracture seems to handle some pretty dense trigger bursts from Flux.

Obviously, LPGs aren’t designed to be struck that fast, but I’m finding that both Optomix and Natural Gate sound good anyway when blasted with Flux dense triggers. It’s a particular sort of result, but kind of cool.

Despite Funk40’s reaction, I’m even finding that the BIA is handling gate bursts from Flux pretty well. Throw some modulation on it and you can get some fun effects. Here’s some fooling around with that:



(The BIA is the rapidly triggered voice running through Magneto. Everything else is something else, but it’s all driven by Flux except for some unclocked random from Sapel.)
