Patch Notes #24 - Radio Music Eurorack Drum Machine
Published on Oct 20, 2016 Voltage Control Lab
"Patch Notes #24 explores the Music Thing Radio Music Eurorack sample player module with looping disabled in the settings (as seen in our recent tutorial) rendering it a one-shot sampler.
The main clock is coming from the Malekko Varigate 4. Channel 1 is triggering the custom kick drum samples loaded into the Music Thing Radio Music, with looping disabled in the Radio Music settings.txt file.
Channel 2 is clocking the Ornament & Crime, which is generating 3 channels of Turing Machine semi-randomized sequences. One sequence is shifting the station on the Radio Music, switching samples. Another Turing sequence is routed to the Noise Engineering Basimilus Iteritas pitch, while a third sequence is modulating the envelope decay on the metallic tones being created.
Channel 3 on the Varigate 4 is routed into the clock input on the DU-SEQ, which is running a 5 step pattern, controlling the gate and pitch on the Make Noise 0-Coast. The pitch signal is routed through Maths channel 2 first, then out from the Sum output to the 0-Coast pitch CV input. One channel from the Pressure Points is also routed into channel 3 on Maths, adding the CV to the pitch input at channel 2, allowing for the transposed sequence. The 0-Coast is routed out through the Vintage Synth Labs VCF-74, and on to the Mutable Instruments Warps running the Parasites firmware for some delay (I like this routing a lot).
The clock output from the DU-SEQ is routed to the 4MS Rotating Clock Divider, which is sending a pulse for every 4 input clock triggers to the clock sync input on the Korg SQ-1. The CV A output is routed to the pitch input on the Mutable Instruments Braids. The stepped random and woggle outputs from the Make Noise Wogglebug are routed to the Braids Timbre CV input and the BI Harm input.
Channel 4 on the Varigate is routed to the Basimilus trigger input. Everything is routed through the Malekko Mix 4 and then out to the audio interface.
