In Theory

"It should work...

I took a leap and bought quite a few new modules all at lone to try a rhythm experiment as well as a different direction in tonal work.

Noise Engineering's Numeric Repetitor, Confundo Funkitus, Tonnetz Sequent are in play here along with a Mutable Instruments Grids. Battle plan included trying straight pulse inputs for the clock timing from a 4MS QCD which is picking up a master timing off the Intellijel Metropolis RYK-M185 sequencer. They are playing nice with a suite of STG Soundlabs sequencer modules and Time Divider as well as a Moon Modular 554 Octal Divider to hammer out some pulse timings to the Tonnetz Sequent. A pair of Synthesizers.com Q962 sequential switches are further dividing up the various pulses to the Home and Transform functions on the Tonnetz Sequent.

The tonal chords from the TS is running a trio of Synthesizers.com Q106's sent through a Yusynth mixer to a Behringer CC300 Space Chorus and on to an Oakley Audio Discontinuity Wavefolder and then on through a Jurgen Haible Tau "Pipe" phaser and finally into a Modcan Dual Delay which is cv swept from a Makenoise Pressure Points and Brains. Whew! It was worth the 100 feet of cables though as it sounds similar to an old Leslie driven Hammond organ in places - like!

Mutable Instruments Rings starts the piece with a bit of resonant bleeps dampened to sound like wood blocks a few minutes into the production. A copy of the Metropolis sequence to a Harvestman Piston Honda is split up going to an Echophon, Phonogene, Clouds and Z-DSP for loads of background effects. It is also sent through a Behringer DD400 digital delay paneled into a 5U module before sent to a MOTM 440 discrete OTA low pass filter. This is also part of the opening sounds set. The last thing banging out a nasty bass tone is the Makenoise Mysteron.
Bass drum is a single Q106 vco through a Q109 ADSR. The snare sound is a TipTop SD808 and the clicky hat sound is an pair of Q106's in conjunction with a double resonant Q107 SVF filter in high pass mode and Q109 ADSR. The Q107 is also being modulated by a Sputnik West Coast Random Source FRV probability cv.

It worked for me."
