MATRIXSYNTH: Random Sequencer Patch

Tuesday, February 23, 2016 Random Sequencer Patch

Published on Feb 23, 2016 wogsalg mit

"Example of using a Q960 to sequence 12 predetermined pitches in random order, very slowly. Synth is going through a ping-pong delay set to 7 seconds with long delay trails, and a bit of plate reverb. i actually recorded another version that crawls along at about half this speed and i like it much better as a musical piece, but it didn't suit the purpose of this video as well.

Note that i'm only using the first 6 steps of the Q960. That's because i needed the gate outputs to trigger the envelope, and i can only combine 6 of them into a Q961 Interface and control the gate time. But i am using two rows of the Q960, switching between them with a Q128 Switch, and controlling the switch with the sample-and-hold random output; it randomly chooses A or B of the switch, and i can weight it toward A and B by using an offset in a Q125 Signal Processor (A, the middle row of the sequencer has more dissonant notes than B, the bottom row, and i step in to adjust this balance a couple of times). There's also a bum note in there at one point, but i get pretty lucky tuning it back to pitch on-the-fly."
