Wow ... this is great. How exactly do the chords work?
I'm pretty useless musically, but how I imagine the Flame Chord Machine works is that you put it a single CV into it, and it quantizes it, then works out 3 other notes to make a chord, and outputs all four separately?

Does the 207 do something similar? I can imagine it being even better (especially with the 4x clock inputs!), but a clearer photo/manual/more detailed description would be awesome.

Holy cow!!! This is awesome.

Hello,
it won't have an ASR, but it has a Gate Out with definable length so that you can connect it to your favourite ADSR.

Also integrated several new features not mentioned in previous posts (like compatible with 1v per octave or buchla's 1.2v per octave), but more about these new features very soon!

Also glad to announce that Beta Users orders will hopefully start to ship in 2 weeks!

all the very best

Ah, sorry, reading ASR immediately made me think of Envelopes...

in this case no, it has multiple outs but also has multiple inputs, and with 1 input only the 3 extra outputs can be used for chord generation, with it's intervals being user definable, meaning that you can have chords with Tonic, and any note you choose with intervals from 0 to 11. for ex. Tonic, 3rd, 5th and 7th or Tonic, 11th, 9th, 3rd. Major and Minor intervals will be generated depending on the scale defined. In a C scale and Tonic C a 3rd will be major, with Tonic D 3rd will be minor and so on...

Not sure if i was totally clear above, but all these questions will soon vanish when we finish the manual and make some videos!

all the very best

Is this valid for all the upcoming modules's beta users or just the quantizer?

I second this. Is there a rough ETA?

Did anyone get a beta version? I'd love to see this thing in action before deciding to change up my quantization options.

I gave up my Quantimator in anticipation of the 207.
Can't wait to play it with a ribbon.
Cheers,

I have a Flame Tame Machine currently. Which I love. Its very quirky with the "beat" section, but the quantizer with mini keyboard scales is just so intuitive. But as much as I love it, the idea of 4 harmonically related quantizations is a huge draw. Especially when you consider each has its own trigger input, unlike the uScale which really has to be locked before the quantizer in order to always get perfect notes locked to a clock.

If I'm not explaining that correctly, what I mean is, say you use a joystick CV source along with a trigger pattern. With my Flame, I will get notes only as long as the trigger fires, otherwise it will hold the last note. With other quantizers like the uScale, the quantizer will still quantize that joystick CV, not matter if a new trigger is received. So you will sometimes get quantizations with the same note held. Sometimes that's nice, but I'm a big fan of using a joystick for sort of random, tempo synced melodies. To do that with a uScale (or quantimator too I suppose) you'd need to S/d the CV source with your clock...

Well, I have the Quantimator, a Flame Tame and I can see the 207 and a Chord Machine in my future :hihi: And while we're at it, some upcoming modules (Metropolis, Syntech E102) have quantizers onboard. Things are getting pretty tonal in euroland ...


By the way, I've seen the videos on Youtube but there are still some stuff I haven't figured out on the Tame Machine. It's easy to grasp but it can be rather complex as well.

The Flame has served me well, in fact, if I add another row to my system I'd like to keep it. I guess the sometimes frustratin thing about it is that the bet section is really a luck of the draw situation. It's great that the beat divisions and cv source are loopable, but its not always predictable.

Anyway, the Addac looks so amazing for 10 hp. I never heard a confirmation but I'm assuming the scale/keypad section lights up according to the scale.

It works best if you've got something external synched which will make the measures intelligible. I always keep the beat on something separate and I count according to that.

CV control? Would be awesome if it can select presets under CV control.

Awesome! I can't wait to see some demos and comments about it! I was thinking of replacing my Tame Machine with it, but now I'm thinking "as well as" (of course). :deadbanana:
