Fuck man, those chords at 19.20 sound awesome. What mode is that?

Cheers guys! I think chords around 19mins are from the strings mode, but then the alternative mode (long press in Orange mode).

Cheers BlueWolfSe7en :guinness:

If muffs had an Elektron section huh? :mrgreen:

Nice work SIB-SIX - liking a lot of those sounds, makes me realise just how much more fun I have yet to have with mine! Chords sound lovely!!!

Videos like this make me so excited for mine to come in :cloud:

Just bought mine from MeMe, going to impatiently wait for this to show up at my door.

First quick test of my newly arrived Mutable Instruments Rings module. Rings is being processed by the MI Clouds module. Additional sounds from MI Elements. Rings and Elements are being "influenced" by the Make Noise Richter Wogglebug and sequenced by two Moog Mother-32s (no sounds are being used from the Mother-32s. No other sounds, effects or post-processing was done on this track.)

I can't thank Mutable Instruments enough for existing! Their modules are so inspiring!

On a side note: once I installed Rings, my Pressure Points froze. I should have more than enough power, i've restarted several times, took out all the modules and reconnected them, but Pressure Points is just frozen no matter what I do! Any thoughts or advice?

jido_genshi that was STUNNING. if you could divulge more detailed patch notes that would really make my day. Is that wogglebug triggering the multiple plucks on each note? Rings arriving tomorrow so no doubt all will become clear on that front. Buy your Clouds modulations are bad-ass, and the subtle drift of pitch and timbre is organic and gorgeous.

Thanks for posting!

Thank you! I really appreciate that...

Yes, Wogglebug's Stepped CV Out is influencing the Mallet to fluctuate between the multiple plucks and regular plucks of Elements (and I think one step of the sequence from the Mother-32 was ratcheting as well.) The Smooth CV Out is influencing the Geometry of Elements and the Position in Rings. And the Smooth Audio Out of the Wogglebug is going into the FM of Elements for that quivery sound (see photo below for visual reference.) The plan was to control many other parameters manually using Pressure Points, but...

And thanks again for the kind words!

Got my Rings the other day. Way cool little piece of kit. My only issue is that the Posistion and Structure knobs seem to effect the pitch which I thought only the Frequency would do. Makes it a little difficult to modulate as it sends my sequences out of tune.

This (with the help of the many great recordings posted in the last several pages) convinced me to order one of these. Great track.

Can't wait for mine.

Position really shouldn't affect pitch in any of the settings, but Structure definitely will. Consider it the same as the Geometry setting on Elements, they both function the same way.

Best spot to put the Structure knob is at the ~10:00 position right where the little paisley "leaf" is sticking out. This should keep it relatively "in tune".

I have one. I'll give it a go later today but here is a little something I improvised last night. Linnstrument > FH-1 > Sputnik Oscillator > Rings > Clouds (modulated by LFOs from Endorphin.es Shuttle and Orbitals).

More accurately:

Position: when modulated, this parameter creates the same kind of dancing notches in the spectrum as a flanger/phaser, so it can give a feeling of wobbly pitch or chorus. There's not much I can do here. You can't make something move rapidly in space without getting these kinds of doppler effects.

Structure: just like with Elements... The module does not necessarily generate harmonic timbres in which the partials are regularly spaced (harmonics at f0, 2 x f0, 3 x f0, 4 x f0). Instead, we get bell-like or cymbal-like timbres which are just clusters of unrelated harmonics, for which there is no clear-cut answer to the question "which note is it?".

When STRUCTURE (on Rings) or GEOMETRY (on Elements) are set to the position marked in orange in the following picture, the partials are regularly spaced (f0, 2xf0, 3xf0, 4xf0) and the pitch is unambiguous. below this point, the partial cluster together, above this point they start spreading (for example the second harmonic is at 2.5 times the fundamental).

Awesome. Explaining it better than I ever could!
