Just got the Mini wave and extra scale quantizer ROM!! 8)

Is there a list of the different modes for the quantizer ROM anywhere??

Dan


this is the closest you'll find but now that you mention it i should probably hit up David Hylander about this. anyway,

"Turn your Miniwave into a flexible scale quantizer. Classical modes, melodic & harmonic minors, major/minor pentatonics, Lydian b7, Phrygian n3 in every key. Simply page to another bank to transpose a static melodic pattern to another key. Page to another 'wave' for modal transposition. Also includes all whole tone scales, chromatic quantitization and several banks of walking melodic patterns relative to the key of C aeolian. How is this possible? Some say I employed a group of ancient Chinese virgins to painstakingly enter each of the 65536 values in this ROM and several went blind in the process. I hope you all appreciate their sacrifices"

not really a proper list and i'm assuming you've seen it already before purchasing the ROM.

Handiest thing I find, especially when using the chord tables, is to stick an attenuator, like the one in tha Blacet mult/att, before the quantiser input, this is especially useful if you're using something like the noise ring, which has a very wide-ranging output. It's good to be able to scale it down a bit.


totally agreed. the video i just posted is prior to me realizing this. however i did have an attenuator after the MW/prior to the VCO. while this basically achieves similar results i found your way a bit more effective.

Is there a proper list though? Somewhere?

start with 'the circle of fifths', helps things make sense

Once you have that, dig this circle of fifths trick (it's more obvious/easy to figure out on guitar): take any major tonality, say, C major, CGE, and draw the triangle on the circle of fifths. Now mirror image that triangle over to the other side of the circle and you get F, Ab, C, which gives you the key of Fm. Got that? That "inverse" key is your trivial, obvious, easily accessible "out" tonality. Mixing Fm tones into C major improvising gives you a tension that works musically and will break you out of that whole "my 8 note sequence sounds lame, yo" trap.

Implementing that improvisational structure in your modular is left as an exercise smile

ObAttribution: I stole this idea from Steve Kimock, who does it on stage every night.
