"Large format modular and Eurorack modular with a looping sequence from the Roland System 8.
The System 8 is sending cv and gate info to a Mutable Instruments Rings and Clouds to generate the very last 8th triplet bell sequence sound. That is doubled with the S8 patch in the modular and sent through a Modcan Dual Delay. The timing for the sequence comes from the Suit & Tie Guy Time Divider to the trigger input of the keyboard.
Everything else is clocked from a midi to dinsync signal into the Pamela's Workout divider. The 4MS Quad Clock Divider, Moon Modular Octal Clock Divider, Intellijel Plog and a Dotcom Q962 Sequential Switch are used to generate other timings.
The main bass line sequence is a Q960 in 5 step pattern, row switched through a Q962. The sounds are the Mos Lab 901 suite through a 904 filter and STG digital attenuators.
The secondary upper sequence is a pair of STG Soundlabs Voltage Mini Stores which again are row switched in a five step pattern through a Malekko switch module. The sound source is The Harvestman Piston Honda mk1 into a Music Thing Spring reverb and TipTop Z-DSP with Clocked Delays chip. AR timing is from an Intellijel Quadra+Expander to an MST Dual VCA.
Both of these sequence patterns are transposed with a dotcom Q119 sequencer. Timing for the change is from a Q173 Gate Maths.
Kick sound is a Sputnik VCS through an Oakley VC State Variable Filter and timing from a Moon Modular 562 Trigger Sequencer. Noise swashes are Sputnik WCRS through an Synthetic Sound Labs Segwencer IV into an STG mixer and on through a Jurgen Haible Tau Pipe Phaser. Additional filtering was through a dotcom Q150 and Q107.
The last sequence is from an Intellijel Metropolis to an Ian Fritz and SSL Double Deka Ultrasonic VCO. The VCO is sent through a MOTM 440 LPF and a SSL Steiner Filter (high pass) on through a dotcom EG and Behringer DD400 digital delay. It is then sent to a Strymon Blue Sky reverb in plate shimmer mode. The MOTM 440 filter is frequency modulated by a bank B output of the DDVCO through an Encore pitch shifter.
