I am trying to fully understand it what it does. The audio demos are interesting...but the front planel and descriptions are kinda....confusing.

I just got mine yesterday. A quick read of the info on the Rebel Technology had me up and running in no time. You just have to feed it a clock and then you can adjust the starting position of the pattern, the length of the pattern and how many of the steps will output a trigger. When you play with it you get the hang of it pretty quick and can get all kinds of killer rhythms out of it.

It's great and the website describes what is does very well. Feed it a clock, set a pattern lenght (corresponds to the number of triggers it receives), set how many steps in the pattern are on, and set the first step. So a 4 step pattern with three steps on can be

xxx.
.xxx
x.xx
xx.x

You see how this can get very interesting if you set a 7 step pattern with 3 or 4 on.

Currently using it as a trigger source for the ldb1 to get a feel for it and it's a very intuitive way to generate interesting patterns!

Only thing is they should've put the bottom switches a bit higher because with plugs inserted they are hard to get to.

The greek symbols in the module name freaked out the post title of the link below. May be why your search didn't throw up many results. This was from a few weeks back...

I love that module, in fact one thing that a friend of mine was doing was clocking it well up into the audio spectrum and seeing just how high it can go, which suprisingly enough was VERY high indeed! so the code is running quite efficiently it seems.

The module is just plain fun, tiptop drum modules, stoicheia, couple of clock dividers and its a party in the modular :party:

I have on and love it, usually makes every patch I make these days. Can be fun to use the A+B mode to get an interesting gate pattern to step a sequencer too.

Essential tool for anyone into complex poly rhythms. Small, simple, fun and very playable.

here are a couple of recordings I did using it:

Rough patch notes:

Unfortunately I have lost my patch notes and only had a small stills camera to film but here is a rough over view. I also have a skiff in front of the 6u with a few modules involved in the patch.

Rebel technologies Stoicheia is receiving a clock from the through of 4ms RCD and is being multiplied off to trigger input on both channels of A156 quantiser and both strike inputs on the optomix. The clock is then fed the SQ8 with the CV out going to the quantiser. One half of the optomix is being fed an input from the uFOLD which has both Dixies going into it and the E350 is going into the other. A simple 4/4 kick from the maths and one half of the Korgo is being clocked from the divide by 4 of the RCD.

Those demos are great examples of what this module can do.
I'd buy the expander or the cv controlled single unit, whatever they want to make. It's hot.

I found that the topmost jack is like a "reset or pause" jack. So, I send the gate out from pressure points into that jack. As long as I hold my finger on the PP, the two out gates on the stoicheia "pause" or go silent, then I release my figer and BAM the beat kicks back down. Should should you what fun times can be had but I don't have any good sound hooked up. Would have to be crapy video sound... if you want I'll post it up

I just bought my second! With or without CV this thing is dope. Would be handy though. I heard that it's easy to make a CV input expander for it. Anyone got any info on this?

I think all three demos are great but the third uptempo demo was awesome - I'm glad I have one :)

I hate this module. I'm just buying that, Logoi and Klasmata because they got Greek titles and it freaks out people.

Audio Dependent, your Stoicheia Demo 03 really shows how this module can shine.

Managed to get myself one yesterday at the Brighton Mini maker fair.
First patch I used it to trigger tiptop kick and snare. Got some interesting patterns going quickly. I would say reading the online help is essential for getting the most out of it.

I've ordered a Stoicheia as well. In part after hearing the demos in this thread. The dual channel rhytmic sequencer I've been looking for. I wanted to get the Z8k but this one I think will serve my needs better.

The Z8000 is all about modulation, it can be used to output gates but it is certainly not its primary purpose and there are way better solutions available for that (like the stoicheia).

So if you want a gate/trigger sequencer than you've made the right choice :tu:

Thanks! Yeah, I figured there was something about the Z8k that didn't really fit me, though it does seem to be a very nice module for what it does.

Rebel Technologys Logoi is out now as well. Seems like a perfect patner for the Stoi.

I'm planning to get the Logoi too but I need to wait at least until next paycheck. I've already spent way too much cash this month on Euro.

The Stoicheia is opensource apparently - can anyone tell me more about that? I understand it's possible to re-program it into something completely different, but how? (And...why?)
