Patch Notes #21 - Sequencing w/ DU-SEQ, 0-Coast and more
Published on Oct 1, 2016 Voltage Control Lab
"This episode is exploring both our latest rubber band control on the Vintage Synth Labs VCF-74 Pulse Tips and the direction & address functionality of the DU-SEQ Eurorack sequencer.
Four voices here, clocked from the Make Noise Tempi including the DU MDLR DU-SEQ, which is sending pitch and gate to the Make Noise 0-Coast. The 0-Coast stepped random out is routed to the overtone section, while the cycling slope section is routed into the FM input. The 0-Coast is then routed out to the Vintage Synth Labs VCF-74, which has it's cutoff knobs rubber banded together, and through the Mutable Instruments Warps Parasite alt firmware ping pong delay. The DU-SEQ address is being modulated by a cycling channel 1 on Maths, from the variable output. The clock output is routed to the Malekko Varigate 4, which is sending one randomized gate pattern to the External Gate input 1 on the DU-SEQ.
The Varigate is also sending a randomized pattern to Mutable Instruments Braids, triggering the internal envelope in the Bees in the Trees alt firmware. As well, Braids is in Meta mode, modulated by the smooth random output on the Make Noise Wogglebug. The cycling channel 4 on Maths is modulating the timbre control, with a looping channel on the Intellijel Dual ADSR modulating the color control.
The pitch is modulated via the S&H circuit on the Sputnik Modular West Coast Random Source. The white noise source is routed to the S&H input, which is being triggered by a 4x clock from the Synthetic Sound Labs Modulation Orgy (which is being clocked by Tempi).
One of the fluctuating random outputs from the West Coast Random Source is routed to the attack input on the Noise Engineering Basimilus Iteritas. The stepped random function from the Modulation Orgy is routed to the pitch. The 4 channels of LFOs on the Ornament & Crime are routed to the decay, fold, harm and spread inputs. The Wogglebug bouncing output is routed to the morph control. The BI is clocked by two source joined through the Doepfer A-151-2 Sequential Switch. One signal from the Tempi, another from the stepped random output on the Wogglebug. One channel on the Make Noise Pressure Points is toggling between the sequences every 4 steps, while another is resetting the switch on the following step.
The bass is coming from the Tiptop Audio Z-3000, with the sawtooth wave routed out through the Make Noise Optomix. A sine wave from the Make Noise DPO is routed to the other channel on the Optomix, and then out to the Z-3000 FM input. Both channels on the Optomix are being opened by the Malekko ADLFO, which is triggered via the Make Noise René (also routed from the QCV to the 1v/oct input on the Z-3000).
Everything through the Malekko Mix 4 and out, with a slight bit of dynamics processing to even out the peaks in the recording.
