I just spent the morning removing the other oscillators from my system.

I'm heading in a different direction: I've pre-ordered an ACL Sinfonion so all of my oscillators can play well together.

I’m currently having a lot of fun with Three Sisters as the filter for Chord, since it allows simultaneous animation of three of Chord’s voices by pushing the position of the three filter cores around to create space in the mix.

I was thinking Make Noise QPAS or SSF Stereo Dipole would work well with it.

Here are some further investigations I recorded over the last couple of days!
I try to do something a little different every time... Marbles always provides the pitch CV, there's always Magneto at the end, but the stuff in the middle is always different.

I really love this module. I've hardly touched another oscillator since I got it. Here's another "demo" created with one instance of Chord V2...

Wow love this! What are using to sequence this? Sounds great!

Wow, that's amazing. I particularly enjoyed part 2. Do you mind sharing some details of that patch?

Does anyone here who owns one had de v1? Was there any improvement on sound?

It may seem like a stupid question but why do you guys think the v1 was badly rated on modulargrid?

Thanks! A sequence on the Arturia Keystep is supplying the root note for the chord progression (and possibly the gate for the Mix out part). The Keystep is being clocked by Pamela's New Workout, which is also supplying all the other gates and triggers (and some modulation). The individual outs of the Chord V2 are going into a Doepfer A151 sequential switch to create the arpeggio. A copy of the root out is being triggered differently to create the "brass" part.

Hi Joe, here are some patch notes.

Marbles t1, t2, t3 out to Stages attack/decay envelopes.
Marbles t1 and t3 multed to Cold Mac Or1 and Or2, Or out to Just Friends.
Marbles x1, x2, and x3 to Chord in unison poly mode.
Marbles x1 and x3 multed to Cold Mac And1 and And2, And out to Chord.
Chord outs to two Optomixes
Stages opens three of four Optomix channels, Just Friends opens the last.
Three of four Optomix outs to Three Sisters.
Three Sisters outs plus last Optomix out to X-Pan. X-Pan to Magneto.
Modulation of Three Sisters, Just Friends, and Stages by Batumi (attenuated).

The sound engine on Chord 2 is completely different than the one on Chord 1. “Improvement” in this case is subjective, but the Chord 1 could only morph between four basic waveforms, whereas Chord 2 has a customizable wavetable system.

I wouldn’t take ratings on ModularGrid too seriously. That said, Chord 1 was maligned for a number of reasons. It was huge considering the number of control elements. The “music theory” portion was significantly “dumbed down” from the earlier prototype, so some expectations were dashed. Actually, the entire module was dumbed down if you look at what they were originally considering. (The original “music theory” portion of the Chord prototype eventually became the Instruo Harmonaig quantizer.) In general, the module felt limited, and like a missed opportunity to many. On the other hand, Chord 1 has its fans to this day, presumably because it happens to fit in well with their particular process.

Hi all! I just picked up a Chord v2 and for some reason I'm getting NO audio out from both the 5th and 7th outputs. The most I can hear is dull pops when oscillating the Bank, but that's it.
What am I missing??

Are those voices heard in the mix output? Have you played with the voicing and tuning? Sometimes it's possible for the higher voices to go beyond human hearing (or the range of the module - I'm not sure which).

Hi guys, been looking around but haven’t posted anything yet!
I recieved my chord v2 a few days ago from midi Amsterdam, and first impressions are great.

However, there are some functions I can’t get to work, and some quirks that confuses me!
Have anyone gotten the melody mode to work? I have followed the instructions and I patch 2 different cvs to the ”v/o-input” and to the ”lead-input” with the mix output going to one channel on one channel on streams and the ”sevent” output going to the other channel on streams, separate gates are being sent to each channel. But I don’t get any signal out from the seventh output, just the mix output. (And yes same settings and modes on both channels on streams)
I’ve tried changing the voicing and frequency, but the ”seventh” output is still totally silent.

Im starting to fear I might have a faulty module:( Has any ideas?

Yes, I have gotten it to work. This is a silly question but must be asked: are you in Melody mode? The Melody LED is blue?

You can also remove Streams from the equation (I'm not familiar enough with it to comment): patch the mix output and seventh outputs directly to your board/mixer/whatever. Are you getting sound?

Thanks, silly maybe, but worth asking as you say.smile
but yeah, the blue light is lit, Im pretty sure I also tried patching them straight to my interface, with the same result, but Im gonna try once again when I get home from work!

Can someone check something for me in the free poly mode?

I’ve patched it up using the free poly mode, changing the root, third and fifth via their corresponding 1v/o inputs.

All is well until I got several octaves up or down as the tuning varies quite a lot. This is a shame as I was hoping to play chords which are spread over several octaves.

Can someone check the tuning of their module over 4-5 octaves. Just play a C note over the different octave and see how the tracking is if you could. Hope its better than mine.

I did think of calibrating the module but I am unsure how I would be able to generate exactly +1v and +3v as necessary.

Cheers


Anyone able to test this out yet? Looking at this or the Quadnic as a compact quad VCO solution. The issue might make Quadnic more favorable (on the assumption it doesn't have the same issue).
