Patch Notes #30 - Varigate 8+ & Voltage Block
Published on Feb 24, 2017 Voltage Control Lab
"Channels 5, 6, 7 and 8 from the Malekko Varigate 8 are routed to an envelope on the AD/LFO, channel 4 on the Make Noise Maths, Mutable Instruments Braids in snare mode and the Noise Engineering Basimilus Iteritas (this gate is multed to channel 1 Maths to get pitch envelope modulation) to generate complex, randomized rhythm combinations. Random gate mode is enabled with the Varigate 8+ end gate output is routed back into random gate input, retriggering a randomized sequence at the beginning of every bar. The clock output on the Varigate is routed to the clock input on the Voltage Block, to avoid the randomization of the VB sequences when the Varigate 8+ is gating itself (one of the gate bus connections between these two modules).
Two sequences from the Voltage Block are routed to control the fold CV input on the Basilmilus as well as the pitch which is routed through Maths channel 3 and summed from Maths Sum out with the channel 1 envelope for more kick drum-like sounds. Another is routed to control the color input on Braids (which is in snare mode), while two more are routed to the Make Noise DPO mod bus index & fm index. Two additional sequences modulate the Malekko Anti-Oscillator pitch and wave shape, with the final sequence controlling the the low pass cutoff on the Vintage Synth Lab VCF-74.
The DPO is routed out through the Make Noise MMG Filter, and then on to the Optomix modulated by channel 4 on Maths. The signal is then routed through Mutable Instruments Clouds for some reverb and granular manipulation, and then out to the Mix4.
The Anti-Oscillator is passed into the VCF-74 and on to the Malekko Borg in VCA mode, modulated by the AD/LFO. On from the Borg to the Mix4.
Braids is in snare mode routed to the Mix4, pretty simple.
Basimilus Iteritas is going direct to the Mix4 as well.
