Pseudo-polyphony with the Decade Counter DC1

Post by futuresoundsystems » Tue Aug 14, 2012 5:22 pm

I played with this patch about a week ago and it worked relatively well for a cheap-ass stab at a poly set up. An important thing to mention is that the note lengths at the MIDI input should be as short as possible, or a last-note-priority MIDI->CV converter should be used, especially for simultaneous notes/chords/whatever. I had Ableton Live's MIDI plugins working their magic trimming the note lengths down. Another downside to this setup, therefore, is the lack of control over the played envelope, but you can't have it all!

The above is setup for "duo-phony" but could easily be adapted to four voices (if I had more mults....)

Thank you! Glad someone else out there is making use out of it. I need to make a demo video of this one at some stage I guess. :tu:

:hmm: I'm thinking how far this could go with an a-152 for S&H purposes.
