013//Radio Static - 2x Moog Mother 32 self-generating track

Published on Mar 5, 2018 Alastair Wilson

"A lo-fi, melodic, semi-self-generating modular patch using a small Eurorack setup sent through an Eventide Space dynaverb reverb and an Eventide Timefactor on vintage delay setting. No other processing has been applied.

The patch is semi-random; the backing arpeggios and filter sweeps are expected, but the notes supply the main melody are randomly chosen by the random stepped voltage that comes from the Assign output.

I created this patch after scrolling through the presets on the Eventide Space for the first time ever! I found a preset called Radio Static, which creates a gritty reverb by using a compressor with attack and release times so fast they create digital distortion. I loved the sound of it and so this patch was born. The only other particularly interesting feature is that I converted the random stepped voltage to random gates by triggering the Gate input of the lower Mother 32 with the random voltage. I then took the Gate output and sent that to the higher Mother 32's VCF Cutoff input to open the filter.

A side note - although it looks like Veils in the top left is part of the patch, I'm only using it as a mixer, to turn down the volume of the Mother 32s before they enter the Timefactor.
