3 Modules #9: Rings, Branches, Peaks

Published on Jun 2, 2017 Comparative Irrelevance

"I'm pretty happy with how the "mood" turned out in this one. It feels cinematic, in a way, with heavy brass bass and dramatic bell stabs.

Patch notes:

Noise tools only provides a steady clock to get the patch started. Branches takes that clock as input, and channel 1 randomly flips between outputing a static voltage to (A) Rings' frequency input, and (B) Rings' structure input. In effect, it jumps between to "preset" states on Rings.

Branches' channel 2 uses the same clock input, and randomly chooses whether to forward each trigger to Peaks' channel 1 (A) or 2 (B).

Peaks' channel 1 is in the alternate drum mode. The sound it produces is sent into Rings' input, to be further processed by the resonator. Rings is in the alternate inharmonic strings mode (flashing red LED), which has a built in reverb. No external effects were used in this patch.

Peaks' channel 2 is in tap LFO mode, producing a stepped random voltage. This is sent to Rings' V/Oct input, controlling the fundamental of the resonator. Because Branches will randomly omit triggers sent to the LFO tap input (or rather, send those triggers elsewhere), the LFO tempo changes continually. However, it's still related to the master clock, and so it stays "in time" with the patch. The result is kind of like a randomly changing clock division. Pretty cool interaction between Branches and Peaks there, I think.

Thanks for watching!"
