Post by dougcl » Sun Jul 19, 2009 12:04 am

Hi folks, spent the evening playing with the PLL and reconstructed this which is the core of the Arabesque Patch.

damn, and me without a quantizer :bang: Oh well, guess I'll try this with the a-189-1 instead, hehe :twisted:

Thanks for going through the trouble of attempting to reconstruct this, man. Epic patch.

Hi Richard, I just used MS Paint on a screen shot from Rack Planner. The rack scale is set to 2.0.

I feel safe saying that everyone who has seen that video has wanted to recreate the patch and/or bought a PLL to do so.

Many thanks!! :sb:

Just patched that up.

Damn that clever. I'm starting to understand the PLL a bit more now.

Thanks

okay, question time:
why use a slew limiter? The lowpass out of the PLL is already "slewed", aka lowpassed, surely?

Thanks for doing that. I'll give it a shot once I get tired of the rats nest I have in place at the moment. :yay:

It allows you to control the PLL and external VCO separately. You should consider it optional though because I can see in the video my untouched A-170 in the second row on the far right. :deadbanana:

Beyond this and not shown here though is the possibility of slewing the pitch input before it goes to the mixer using the bottom half of the A-170. This would make the sound go through the scale on the way to the desired note and then trill once it's there.

awesome. I bet you could even make the note jumping sync with a clock somewhat with a trigger into the quantizer. or a Maths instead of the slew. Damn....why do I need to go out for dinner instead of trying this patch! Oh yeah...chicks. :hmm:

Yes, amazing patch...

I'd missed this, and patched it up last night, though I don't yet have a 156...

I found the patch grew quickly to bind together half the modular, and really sounds great with VC Slew whilst toggling the switches on the 196... I can imagine working with this for some time over Christmas...

Thanks Doug...
