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

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.

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!
