Telharmonic: VC Random Gates/Burts (and Sync, too!)

Post by luketeaford » Fri Jan 10, 2020 4:14 pm

Here's a cool and easy Telharmonic trick: you can use it to generate probabilistic random bursts and even sync them to a clock.

Start by turning degree panel control and tonic all the way CCW. The idea is to have the noise be as dark as possible.

Set FLUX full CCW.

Patch N OUT to Degree Input and back the control off as desired. Right around in the 11:00-1:00 range is ideal for my taste.

The FLUX input controls the burst rate.

The D-GATE input is where you'd patch a clock you want to sync to (or manual gate is super cool, for example).

Random gates come from GATE OUT!

Happy patching! :goo:

Here's a video demonstrating the patch:

Thanks, I’ll have to try this! I’ve had the Telharmonic for a while, now, and still learning new things to do with it.

Here's another clip where I demonstrate the D-Gate sync input and the VC-able density with flux. This is my favorite way to patch bursts now because it's surprisingly simple and flexible.

I love the Telharmonic but still have a lot of undiscovered possibilities with it. The way FLUX works with P Output is confusing to me, and I forget the chord modes, and I've never found a reason for the spiratone generator... :despair:

Stellar patch once again. :tu:

Yeah, Spiratone... :despair:

I've unfairly neglected the gate out by the looks of this patch, but I get great mileage out of shift register mode.
Is it finished?

Thanks! I'm working with the spiratone but haven't gotten anything super interesting yet.

The gate out is cool—If only the telharmonic had a quantizer out.

Worth trying ring modulating one output with the other.

Always new things to learn with my Teleharmonic - thanks!
