The Sample and Hold Trust Fall

Post by fivepawnopaw » Wed Jan 03, 2018 8:29 pm

Hello fellow wigglers!

I more or less never felt I needed a Sample & Hold in my system, but always hear it is a good module to have in your arsenal. (well technically I do have one in my Disting, I just never found a good use for that mode).

Anyhow, what are some creative uses besides a random noise/pitch generator that you have found works great with a S&H?

Video and audio are most welcome!

Still using as a random pitch generator, but say you have a sequence and want to add a little variation, you can use sample and hold with sequential switch or a vc mixer to generate random notes on specific steps/gates/triggers.
Or you can clock s+h at audio rates to get nasty bitcrushing fx.

Random cv for filters, random pulse for triggering...

I’ll sometimes patch up these little harmony machines where a sequence is captured at random times and held, being sent to a second oscillator. This creates these long notes that are derived from the main sequence. :tu:

Could you elaborate? Sounds like an interesting idea. How exactly would you patch that up?

shouldn't this really be in the modular section?

not a big deal, but I thought that this sub-forum was supposed to center around noise music, and making it electronically. It seems like more and more, generic synth topics are being posted here.

perhaps no one cares.

if you post this in the General modular or eurorack forum you will get a lot more tips.

for noise stuff, you can patch a S/H on audiorate and make a bitcrusher out of it.

Hello Fivepawnopaw ,
As inputs I often use a slow LFO-signal ( triangle mostly ). If the frequency of the clock is not equal to ( or in a simple ratio with ) the frequency of the triangular wave, then the output will be only more or less regular/predictable.
To me this is much more interesting than the random voltage that you can get if you use pink noise as input.
This signal can be used to control a filter, the amount of PWM, etc. Or as input for a quantiser, like the Doepfer A-156
Try this. Hope you will enjoy it !
Greetings, Permafrost.
