QU-BIT Pulsar Question

Post by kbowman016 » Thu Sep 19, 2019 11:57 am

Hello, I am still a noob to modular and just starting to dig into each modular trying to learn one at a time. I am just starting with QU-BIT's Pulsar and I feel I have the basics down, but I am struggling with wrapping my head around some of the more cooler, complex things it can do.

Here is one thing I would like to do but 1) I am not sure it is possible 2) If it is, how to do it?

Let's say I have a sequence on channel one that has a pulse on step 3,6,9,12 and 15.

Is it possible to have a clock pulse start a channel’s sequence from step one, have the sequence play all the way to step 16 then advance a step and stop until another clock pulse is received, which then would start to play the channel’s entire sequence from step two then advance a step and stop until the next clock pulse (and so on and so on)

Hopefully, I described what I am trying to do adequately. If anyone can help me out and share some knowledge it would be greatly appreciated!

A bit late for an answer, sorry for that. Concerning shifting the pattern, I don't think it's possible.

But, your example shows a specific behavior that can be reproduced: "..x..x..x..x..x".
If I understood well, to get there, on the pulsar, reduce the pattern length to 12 steps, trigger 4 pulses starting on the 3rd step, reducing the pattern to "..x..x..x..x".

For the stop/start behavior, you'll need to play with the absorb/burst CVs. According to the above pattern, it'll be 1 absorb at the 17th step (12+4+1) and 2 bursts, one to trigger the first cycle (initial 12 steps, the second on the 13th step to trigger the second cycle (remaining 4 steps). To shift the pattern on the pulsar, you need to play with that second/third sequencer.

You can shift the pattern via cv in to the mode input and use burst to trigger the sequence once.

So burst, apply cv to shift -1 position, shorten pattern with cv in to length if desired, repeat
