WTF is this?????? :)

Post by soundmachines » Thu Aug 23, 2012 6:28 am

Just a test to see if everything fits in 4hp..
Too cramped for you?
Hint, hint... this is NOT a utility module!

What could it be????

Cheers!

Ewwww, minipots... Gross! :lol:

(Looks cool. I'm guessing it's a multimode filter.)

I think those are Tact momentary pushbuttons switches and not trimpots.

some sort of clock module?

It will take some serious wizardry... what about starting from chicken meat?

ahah! well minipots like that will call for your children to operate your modular (that could be a not so bad thing!!!!)

It is something that I am experimenting right now.
A small sampler/looper that is controllable by CVs and Gates.

We have (either by buttons or gates): REC, PLAY ONE SHOT, PLAY LOOP
And the sampling/playing freq is variable and controllable by CV.

This should be a very cheap entry level looper of sorts, with up to 40 second sampling.

Pretty basic but fun!!!!

Yes! I think it's more reasonable :)

DC coupled for recording CVs?

The core itself is not capable of that but since you asked for two moar HPs and there is a micro inside.... we can easily add two jacks for CV (but we will keep to 0-5V) and some recording/playing firmware on analog inputs and a small dac output. This way we will have a two concurrent channels (one audio, one 'slow' CV.

Good Food for thought!

:hmm: will it also be able to sample and loop dc-voltages/control signals (so that it could function as a voltage-controlled control-voltage recorder :) )?

at any rate, it sounds ike this could be a very fun and useful addition. it's liike an instant groove module! :wookie:

can't wait to see what soundmachines comes up with next! :hyper:

Wicked. Can't wait to see this stuff out in the wild. Oh, and definitely 6hp. 4hp is extremely cramped unless there is just a single row of jacks. Especially if there happens to be another cramped module next to it.

Will current memory last upon power cycle?

Sometimes I think I'd really like to make my own percussion sounds, sample them for later use and then free up those modules for other simultaneous use.

Yes it can!
The idea is to have it cheap enough to let you but more than one.
On the other hand, in its current implementation I really don't know if its timing it's tight enough to have a decent precision on the start of the sampling...

I would say it's much more suited to "re-rythm" some phrases, or to loop drones.

I'm still experimenting, in a couple of weeks I will have a functional mockup to show you (probably a video), to see if 'works' :)

Oh, I'd love to see that in action. I'm quite interested to check out how it compares to the upcoming Antimatter Audio's Brain Seed

The BS is a CV recorder so that is a major difference if this is mainly for audio. I'd be really interested if it's priced right and I go do glitches with this (freeze action etc). I'm voting for 4HP.

How is this going?

I was thinking of this project and the whole "cheap loop module" prospect and here's my 2 cents:

I'd keep it 4HP, it makes more sense if it is cheap enough to buy more than one. I'd lose the DC coupled option if it meant a lower price, as I said before there's a beautiful module by antimatteraudio coming out to do just that. I'd want it to have gate inputs on Rec/Play/Loop. Maybe a CV over lenght?

In any case keep it simple, cheap, useful.

A pic is worth a thousand samples...

Okay, here's the UL1 uloop ('u' as the greek letter 'mu', or as 'you'!!).
Actually this is the panel, I plan to test it in the next few days....

Small, useful and cheap sampler/looper.
-LEVEL input pot
-REC, PLAY, LOOP gate inputs
-TUNE pot and CV input
-NONVOLATILE memory
-Hopefully cheap, so you buy three pieces at a time.
-Future expansion (won't tell ya)

Also, will the play one shot always restart with each gate input or pickup where it stopped in the buffer?

The Antimatter Brain Seed records a sequence of discreet voltages as a step sequence, not, as far as I understand a continuous stream of DC. It's seems it's been decided but I think it's a shame this module won't have this capability since it would be a big plus point. It would double its functionality. How much more would it be to add it?

The expansion will have some bonus functions..... :mrgreen:

I really wanted to keep the 4hp. And there's no more space in there!!
