I made an EP of Morphagene compositions last year, this is my favourite track off it

For anyone interested it's on YouTube, Spotify etc also Bandcamp:



I also made a little music video to go with another track off it:

Thanks, jnduffie. When you embark on a Reich/Bagpuss crossover you expect your audience to be limited, so it's nice to know it reached someone. :guinness:

Just finished a track and visuals yesterday to. I can't get enough of feeding the Morphagene piano. Sounds so, so, SO good.

Holy shit I love this so much, anything else here going on besides piano+morphagene?

Agreed! It's great!

All this from a Sine Wave from the A-110-4 -> Optomix -> Dark Matter -> Clouds -> ErbeVerb -> Mrophagene -> A&H Mixer -> Analog Heat with some feedback.

I discovered it's really easy to get a chord progression going by sampling multiple layers of an oscillator tuned to different pitches on one splice (adjusting relative amplitudes with SOS) and then when you're ready for a new chord, record to a new splice. "Play" the progression with the Shift input.
Gorgeous piece

I did this piece on an album for Standard Music solely on the Morphagene: http://hrvst.co/bb/dw0yb

Various layers of Morphagene with some help of Plaits particle noise 8-)

Nice and simple, congrats. What are you using to modulate the three Morphagene parameters? DLD and Erbeverb are "static", or also modulated?

Thanks - Maths and Chance modulate Morphagene, I'm manually freezing the DLD and changing the delay times.

Used the Morphagene for string sounds and some texture in this one.

@ggillon....... Shit! That was a sweet track!!

Do you have any patch notes you could share? That filter was nice...

I've got to listen to it again... So good...

The patch you've created in your brain is more challenging to modify than the patch you have on your modular.

Thank you!

Yes sure, it wasn't a very complex patch. The morphagene is triggered by random gates from a Pico RND and a S&H from a second RND modulates the Slide. I played with the rates of both Pico RND and with Gene size manually.

The Morphagene is sent to the pedal line (Ottobit jr, Polymoon, Mercury7) then back to mixer. The filter is from the Ottobit jr.

The remaining is the DPO sequenced by René sent to Optomix, Echophon and Erbe-verb, the kick and hats are from Erica synths modules.

Thanks ggillon! I love my Pico RND... I should get another one... That filter on your track got me thinking about the feedback resonance trick with the Make Noise LxD... And so, I was guessing that you had an LPG in your mix somewhere.... anyway, It got me thinking that I could do the resonance trick with the optomix, which I haven't tried yet...


Someday I'll have a morphagene composition to share here. I've been working on some other modules lately...



P.S. I have a LxD feedback resonance video and a Pico RND instruction video on my YT page if anyone not already knowing about them wants to inform themselves.. Apologies for being off topic..

Now that you mention resonance I think I get what you meant when asking which filter I used.


I thought you meant the simple LPF applied to the Morphagene bits but after listening to your video on LxD now I realize you probably asked about the looping sequence from the DPO.

In that case the sound is the first oscillator in LFO mode applied to the mod bus to modulate shape and angle of the second OSC final output. DPO is then sent to optomix for the enveloppe.

Ha Ha ! That's cool.... In fact that is pretty much what I realized after you showed the patch you had going... I realized that the cool stuff I was hearing was probably the DPO's parameters being modulated...

:tu: :tu:

Damn it.... Now I need a DPO..... :eek:

This is a recording of a practice session recorded by my partner and I in preparation for our first gig a few weeks ago. Thought it turned out really nicely and our first gig was a great success.

Morphagene features quite heavily and is set to record/playback various sections of vocals, field recordings and percussion throughout. Enjoy :)
