This has sent me down the Relabi rabbit hole. If anyone is interested, here's Berndt's original essay from 2009: http://www.johnberndt.org/relabi/Relabi_essay.htm. There are some audio examples linked from near the bottom of the page.

I wonder whether Autechre are aware of Relabi? Their rhythmic structures in some pieces seem pretty Relabi-esque to me.

I'm also interested in how the resulting Relabi wave differs from, say, that produced by a subtly CV'ed chaos module (repetition with variation).

As someone who's come from Ciat Lonbarde Roolz Gewei & Plumbutters I'd be interested to see some real world demo's. :party:

so to dumb this down for myself, the idea is creating rhythms with interference patterns?

Not quite rhythms, more like irregular/shuffled clocks IIUC.

I can't decide yet on whether I love the idea more than I hate that ADDAC has found a way to make flip switches menu-divey...

I had no idea this module was being made until it came up in me google arts with my name this morning, but flattered and glad it exists.

Here is an explanation of what this is all about:
http://johnberndt.org/relabi/Relabi_essay.htm

Here are links to two audio samples from an upcoming record that is based on these ideas:
https://soundcloud.com/recordedllc/its- ... HH0s0VKDwa
https://soundcloud.com/recordedllc/forking-final-edit

These are made using custom software I developed with a friend + live performers; but the last year I have been using this principle a lot in Eurorack modular pieces too.

So, imagine my surprise after working on this stuff for a long time that there is a module that encapsulates it... extremely nice!

Can't wait to get my hands on one.

kinda sounds like a window comparator with built in LFOs (but with more overall tweakability ie, adjustable gate lengths)? perhaps the Joranalogue Compare 2 videos by divkid would give some ideas about what to do with this.

No Addac405 videos yet but here's one of someone trying out Relabi in a modular setting:

You go too high too early, man. The beat sounds like the a slow mudslide and the melodies that go on and on. :zen:

There's a very very strong sense of the underlying beat in Autechre, which is part of their charm. I honestly don't think they're very relabi oriented.

Been waiting for this module to materialize! :party:
If you read on what the module offers, there's a lot of things going in, especially with incoming signals and the Pause, Trigger, options etc. It should cover a lot of ground. Of course there's comparators involved, but some of the options available I wouldn't be able to pull off with conventional means (I own a lot of comparators!). This is going to be so much fun!

A bit random, bere is another track from the planned BALTIMORE RELABI STYLE lp, showing another side of the sensibility. Enjoy!

Not on addac website and Addac 405 is not already available (early December so in few days).

Here is a first attempt to tame the Relabi. The 4 gate outputs are driving 4 envelopes sent to 4 harmonics of a Verbos HO. The sines output of the HO is sent to input 1 of the Triple bandpass filter. The square output sent to input 2. The v/Oct of the HO is receiving the relabi wave attenuated and quantized. The Relabi and the Triple BPF are modulated by lfos. The play mode of the relabi is changed by hand. Some stereo image and reverb added in DAW :

Just receive it today.
As I can say it that module sounds really amazing, patterns are organic and musical, relabi wave + them are so cool to create evolving complex and interesting patterns. And the fun really begin when you modulate parameters...
