Dual Arp 3 with Pure Data & Modal 002
Published on Oct 11, 2016 Barry Neilsen
"I used Pure Data to set up a kind of two handed sequencer where notes from each 'hand' play in turn. The Modal 002 plays two patches, one sequenced and one live and with lashings delay from the its new digital FX board.
Patterns for each track of the Pure Data patch are entered from the keyboard. I use the BitStream midi box to control routing in Pure Data. The cross-fader switches between the left and right pattern and there's also a centre zone which looks at the start note to decide whether to route left or right. A foot switch turns off note input and sends data back to the 002 for live play on the other patch. The vertical knobs and faders on the BitStream are mapped patch parameters on the 002."
