Not trying to sound silly but have you adjusted the trigger length on the Varigate correctly in global mode? Mine will double trigger if the slider is set past 25% open. It work on mine with or without a external clock.


in the first 10 seconds of the video I posted you can see me in global mode putting my pulsewidth all the way down which is the shortest setting. am I missing something ?

Sorry I didn't see I'm on my phone and couldn't see you were in global. Not sure why mines not doing it maybe Eric can answer this one.


I also got in touch with Malekko asking if it was possible to mod the varigate to get even shorter pulsewidths as well . because it looks like a mean sequencer for it !!

maybe one of these could help the cause : http://ladik.ladik.eu/?page_id=1616

It's just a code adjustment to change the length on the Varigate. Ben said a while ago he may do a firmware update that would make the slider go from nothing to a full gate tie of 100% with the slider fully open.

That would be perfect....

Yeah that would actually be a nice solution to any D-1000 / 2000 owner, it would make any gate or trigger sequencer compatible.

the u-030 would be even better, it changes the trigger volume according to the incoming gate level, which means more dynamics!

Yes one can only experiment though.

I tried sequencing with the Octatrack through an AniModule Midi Gate and it was pretty bad. It went from very short pop to double trigger within 1 increment (from shortest to 2nd shortest length setting) . The OT sequenced the D-1000 just fine with the Yarns but unfortunately not with the AniModule.

I tried tweaking the velocity but it had no effect .

Here's a short video :

My quest to find a compatible sequencer for the D-1000 is still ongoing, I don't want random triggers since i'm not a big advocate of random (such as the zularic repetitor and such) , and I take the D-1000 as a full instrument not just something I can send some triggers with from various modules like envelope generators , I need 4 tracks of straight up sequencing so I can use the D-1000 as a centerpiece. I sold my Yarns in order to look further into what is out there but so far it was the only module that translated midi well into the D-1000.

My last resort would be simply to work out the Mod for turning the Clock Out into an Input as well . But I'm not experienced in electronics so that would cost me to send it to someone who is qualified. I haven't given up yet though !

what do you think would be better a fixed 5V trigger with the variable time settings (U-031 from ladik : http://ladik.ladik.eu/?page_id=1616) or the U-30 which has a fixed 1ms trigger but with level dependent on the incoming gate-level ? (U-030 http://ladik.ladik.eu/?page_id=559)

Seems to me like the U-031 would be the better choice even though it would lack the dynamics but at least you can get the right trigger length because we don't know for sure if 1ms would be the sweet spot for the trigger . or do we ?


I ditched my Varigate because I don't want to wait for a firmware update that doesn't really seem to be in the works at the moment from Malekko, if this ever comes out then i'll go for it but at the moment i'll want to figure out if this Ladik module can be the solution to any gate sequencer hyper

[I still desperately want a D1000 or a 2000 but it's tricky for Euro (UK) based people.]


My suggestion would be ADDC402...

Not a sequencer but I found the Tsyklon Labs Chaos Divider and the Sacrament and Sputnik expanders to bring a wide variety of useful clock/gate/triggers for the D-1000.

Plus it has a Nixie tube. hyper

While running the Chaos Divider as a frequency divider in chaos mode, I made these horrible sounds:

Behold! The Antimatter Launch Codes!

Due to the way in which the jacks and boards are mounted in the Launch Codes, one must mount it from the rear (snigger-snigger). Alas, no internal clock and that's always a bit of a drag, but seriously, i just don't get it

Nice video Smokey! I really enjoyed it. It's always exciting to see and hear people do something with the Chaos Divider HV that I would have never thought of.

The U-31 from Ladik works like a charm , tried and approved. thumbs up

i've been triggering the D1000 with a soundmachines drum computer. finding the drum computer easy to use, triggers with precision.

Just an FYI - Pamela's New Workout is incredible with the D2000 but doesn't fit in the cut out slot on the case. At least on my copy, there's a small micro-connector on the side of the new Pam's that juts out just enough from the side to make it not possible to place inside the D2000. This might be fixed by resoldering the microconnector so it's not jutting out, but not sure.

I personally have Mutable Peaks in the D2000 slot as two extra drum voices and envelope for D2000 pitched drums, works great - with Pam's New Workout right next to it in a boat. But wanted to mention old Pam's Workout fits perfectly inside the D2000 but that new one (ALM-017) seems a little wide. - Make your "Pam's needs to workout more" jokes! But if others were wondering, that's what's happening with my copy.

The mfb Urzwerg Sequencer always got along well with my D-1000

Kujo
nice !

I use either Pamela's Old Workout, Ornament and Crime, or a combination of the two.
Suggestions for other modules:
Noise Engineering Numeric Repetitor
Animodule's STD looks pretty juicy
Monome White Whale
Soundmachines BI1 Brain Interface Desktop (yeah this is basically a Brainwave-to-CV convertor)

schneidersladen.de has the D2000 in stock as well as a good amount of other metasonix gear.

I have the D-2000 since a month or so and really really like it. I have been experimenting with different sequencers and had some trouble with double triggers but finally found something that works great. Now I use the SSF Propagate before the inputs of D-2000 and with that I can use any sequencer. Being able to change the gate length slowly from extremely short to really long is great and varies the character of the sound a lot. It is also fun to get it to do measured double triggers on purpose. The gate length can be CV controlled too for cool variations of the drum sounds!

At last, someone made the perfect driver.....http://www.steadystatefate.com/propagate

This should work.

Beatstep Pro works, if not perfectly since it CV is too coarse:

NI Reaktor -> Expert Sleepers ES-8 (with its own power supply) -> D-2000

Does anyone know of a good way to trigger the D1000 with drum pads?
I have a couple laying around and thought it might be fun to play the D1k with them.
Looking through old threads seems like a bunch of A119s was the way to go with pads in general but hopefully something more elegant has since come out. seriously, i just don't get it

I also have an old Nord Drum 1 but seems like the added midi conversion could be avoided.

Thanks guys!
